My master bathroom has a couple of sections to it one is a dressing Room and vanity area in the other is where the commode and shower are.
I want to automate the lighting for the commode and shower using my motion sensor but this causes a little bit of a problem. You see I can automate it to where it turns off the light after 5 minutes of inactivity but with a shower curtain closed it doesn’t notice the motion in the actual shower stall so 5 minutes in your shower it goes dark. I don’t want to extend the timer on the inactivity because I don’t wanna have the light on longer than we have to when someone decides to get up at 2:00 in the morning and use the toilet.
That leaves me with the conundrum of how to make this actually work. So how would I be able to make it see as it were motion in the shower? This Room is all of about 6’ by 6’ and is simply a regular bath tub shower with a shower curtain a commode immediately next to the shower and a standard bathroom window the motion sensor is on the little piece of window wall before the wall turns on the door side and is approximately 5’ off the ground.
