So… when I first started using ST and setup my 1st motion sensors, ya’all really helped me fine tune placement and tweaking. Originally the delays to turn the lights on were not acceptable. Then I bought Hue Sensors and used the Hue Hub and the sensor activation/lights on was almost immediate. Life was good. Then I had the bright idea (grrrr) to move the Hue Sensor to the ST hub using the DH so I could manage them all in 1 place. Now the problem is that the lights are again delayed by probably 1-2 seconds. Also, my lights auto shut off only works about 60-75% of the time (and usually not all lights turn off either). I am essentially using CoRE to turn them on but Smart Lighting to turn off. Can someone confirm:
- Using Hue Motion Sensor directly in ST, I should expect a delay since the lights are connected to a Hue Hub
- Is it advised to using 1 app (such as CoRE) to turn on and a different app to turn off (such as Smart Lighting)
One big learning for newbies (and I put myself in that category), find a sensors that works for what you’re trying to accomplish and stick with it if possible. The ST sensor didn’t work well and though I love the Hue Sensor, it’s kind of a hassle to make it do what I need. Going forward, I will only buy Iris Motion Sensors.
