Can the Smarthings motion sensors be armed? For instance to turn on a light if motion is detected but only between 5pm and 10 pm?
Are there any compatible devices that can sense when they are moved? (Not the two piece door open/close sensor) for instance setting a sensor on a counter and moving it with my hand to turn on WEMO LED’s? and then turning them back off? Does the Aeotec Gen5 6-in-1 do this? Is there lag time if I use it to toggle on and off WEMO LED’s?
Can outlet switches be put on a timer? For instance anything that’s plugged in, be switched off after a pre-determined amount of hours?
What if I don’t want to arm EVERYTHING at the same time? For instance, I want a lamp in my living to turn on when motion is detected between 5pm and 10pm, but not one in my kitchen between 5pm and 10pm? (both would operate on different motion sensors.)
And do I understand you correctly that the AEOtec Gen 5 6-in-1 detects being moved? any other sensors do that?
For basic “Motion here turns on Light here” you will not even need to arm the system. Lighting rules can be set up per room or even per light bulb. You can use more than one motion to trigger a light and you can trigger multiple lights with one motion.
I have my porch lights trigger on motion after sunset.
I have hue lights in the living room trigger on motion with white light between sunrise and sunset, and then they comer on with a warmer light after sunset.
You can do that with the stock Smart Lighting app.
I don’t know of any other sensors that have all of those in one package. The ST multi has contact, temperature, and acceleration.
