First rule of home automation: “the model number matters.” Most motion switches do not expose their motion sensors to SmartThings: they just use it internally to turn the switch on and off. But there may be a few that do.
@Paul_Oliver has done some work with this device class and may know some specifics.
@Chillin, sorry but I have not worked with motion switches.
If you have a ST hub, and your motion switches don’t show up in STHM there is a simple solution. Create a virtual motion sensor using @TAustin 's vEdge Creator. The virtual motion sensor will show up in STHM. Then use a single routine to turn on the virtual motion sensor when the motion switch is triggered. You can then use the settings in the virtual motion sensor to automatically reset the virtual motion sensor after x seconds, or you can use a 2nd routine to reset the virtual motion sensor when the motion switch turns off.
Thanks for the response. I went and ordered a couple and for reference Kasa motion switches just show up as switches. I’d be interested in knowing if any motion switches do actually show up as motion detectors as well.
Good to know, thanks. At well over double the cost of the Kasa ones I bought I’m not sure it’s worth it since there is the virtual Motion option above. But clearly they are better and being able to directly see the motion state would be nice. If I end up getting any more motion switches I’ll look at Jasco.
