Hey Guys, so let me start of by saying the ST Motion Sensor is garbage… (IMO).
I realize i am most likely opening the 99th thread about a motion sensor but i could not get a definite answer.
Like many others my motion sensor simply every 2 days stop responding and even taking the battery out doesnt help, i have to completely reset it.
What i have tried:
- Reset it completely - same results after 2 days.
- Replace battery - no luck.
- Purchased a repeater and put it next to it - same issues.
So i am looking for a good alternative, preferably AC powered to it can act as a repeater.
I use them for automating my straits light if my kids wake up at night. But sadly the ST own motion sensor just simply get stuck in motion or no motion and thats it… my automation stop working until i completely remove the device and re add it.
Looked at amaon/monoprice etc. i see the PIR motion sensors but they are non AC powered and i am unsure how they will be with the angle view…
any suggestion will be highly appreciated.
