Help. Trying to set up motion notifications only at certain times of the day for certain "Things"

I’m new to Smartthings so bare with me. I recently bought the V2 bundle with open/closer and motion sensor. I also picked up a few motion sensors from Monoprice. I’m finding it surprisingly difficult to do what I want to do. All I want to do is have the Monoprice sensors fire SMS notifications from about 10pm to 6am and only have the schedule impact these particular sensors. This has to be possible to set up a notification schedule for a particular device, right? How do I do it?

I also have the Smartthings open/close detector and Smartthings motion sensor that came with the bundle but I want these notifications firing 24/7.

I think a custom rule in Smart Home Monitor can do what you want.

Go to the dashboard tab and select Smart Home Monitor
Tap the gear icon in the upper right corner and choose 'custom’
Choose new monitoring rule
From there you can tell it which sensors you want to monitor and under the ‘more options’ section you can set a time window for it.

I think that should do it.

Worked great! Thank you much!

It is not quite intuitive how it is set up (buried in the menus) but now that I know it is there, it will be easy to reproduce.

Thanks again!

Glad it helped! User interface does not seem to be SmartThings’ forte…
