Thank you for all of the great posts on this thread. I bought several of the Bosch Motion Detectors, and then found out about the “inactive in seconds” issue.
I did install the Device Handler by Tomas Axerot (http://tinyurl.com/yak4x2j8), and it got everything working … EXCEPT … I was still getting the same “inactive” events right after the “active” event.
I’m been wanting to experiment and write/modify a Device Handler for quite some time … and tonight was the night. I have now created the “Bosch Motion Detector with Delay” Device Handler … and after some minimal testing am ready for other feedback!
This fork of Tomas work adds a new preference “Minimum Duration” which you can set in minutes. It will filter all of the “inactive” events, and then generate one that is the “minimum duration” minutes after the last “active” event.
There is some refactoring that I want to do tomorrow after more testing, but thought that I might as well get feedback from anyone else before I do much more. Anyone up for testing?
