Ensuring Light is off when motion is not detected?

(Marc) #1

My wife has this terrible habit of not shutting off the lights in the kitchen when she leaves. I want to setup the Aeon motion sensor in my kitchen to poll every 2 minutes and if motion hasn’t been detected in the past 2 minutes to shut the light off. Does something like this exist? I don’t want the light to turn on when there is motion because I am using Hue lights at night in the room and during the day, sometimes it’s very bright and I don’t want it to turn on.

I took the ST “Turn off lights after no motion” app and removed the line that turns on the light. This way it monitors for motion stopped and has a timer in minutes you can use to turn off the lights x minutes later.
