Since yesterday my app does not show the Smart Lighting App anymore, no clue why and can’t find a solution. So I was experimenting with Automations that more or less offers the same functionality.
One thing however I am struggling with is the following:
I my bathroom I want to turn on the lights on motion, but turn it of manually. I have added a condition that this only triggers when the lights are off. The reason fir this is that if somebody spends a longer period of time in the bathroom and changes the light settings (color, brightness) I do not want that to change when the motion sensor senses motion.
This always worked perfectly with the Smart Lighting app. However, with an Automation, when I turn off the light manually, it turns on immediately because the motion sensor triggers the Automation right away.
One solution I thought of was to change the interval the motion sensor “retrigger time”, to 10 minutes. However, this does not seem to work. When I turn off the lights , they turn on instantly. Also when I do this a number of times in a row.
Another option I tried was to add a condition “light needs to be off for 1 minute”, using the “choose how long this status must be maintained before the automation runs”. This does not work.
Any idea how to solve this? Thanks!
