I’ve always had slight delays whether using ST’s on Smart Lighting or Core/WebCore’s stuff and figured that was part of the deal, despite them being up to 2 seconds sometimes. Lately though, my WebCore motion sensor events are really taking their sweet time turning my lights on and it’s defeating the convenience of it.
I have all my motion sensor events in one Piston and they all execute asynchronously, here is an example of one:
Now the strange thing is that even with identical code, the light in the bedroom has always turned on faster. Here are the smart objects involved in both rooms:
- Lifx White A19 Bulb
- SmartThings Motion Sensor STS-IRM-250
- Lifx Color A19 bulb
- SmartThings SmartSense Motion
The bedroom sensor came with the ST Hub kit I bought and the one in Mocha’s room, I assumed was the same but was bought separately from the ST webstore.
I also have another motion sensor that is from PEQ which was the fastest of the 3 when I first got it (using Core then WebCore) but now, as of a few weeks ago, is by far the slowest to respond.
What’s going on? And as an aside, is Hue really better at response time since it’s onsite? My Lifx events don’t always run via WebCore but I can’t tell if it’s ST being messy or Lifx just not receiving commands.
Thanks, I appreciate any help!
