I got 10 smartthings motion sensor and I’m wondering where is usually the best place to install them. They don’t come with a handle for the corner of the wall. Even if they did, I think it would be better to install them, on the wall, on top of the inside door so they fire only when I get in the room and not when I walk in the hallway.
I have one in my laundry room under the shelf that detects me as I approach the washer/dryer.
I also have one in the hall linen closet which essentially acts like an open/close sensor as it won’t see anything as long as the door is closed.
You will want to set them up wherever they won’t get accidental triggers. Above the doorframe inside the room is a good place. Directly beside the lightswitch on the wall inside a room is also a good place, although it tends to stand out a bit more right there.
@JDRoberts uses one inside a box that he just waves his hand over to trigger actions.
There are places in rooms you can install them so they won’t trigger until you are well into the room so they won’t trigger just for quick trips in.
