I’ve been wanting to do this for a while now so I am excited to see I will not have to write any custom code. My scenario is a bit more complicated:
My front door lights turn on dimmed at 10% (2 x 120W LED PAR38) at sunset and turn off at sunrise using the new Lighting Automation. I installed an AEON MultiSensor Gen 5 pointing down at my front door to capture motion. The idea was to set the lights to 100% when motion is detected and then back to whatever the dim level was once X minutes have passed (or no motion).
One issue is that the sensor chugged through the batteries in a day or two which may be connected to AEON stating that motion has to be disabled if this sensor is installed outside… I also have a Fibaro sensor but the bracket to install it is so flimsy I am not sure I want to install it outside in the heat/cold using it. I also need to find a way to make the sensor less sensitive to plants moving due to wind in case it is triggering the sensor (I believe regular PIR sensors are not triggered by moving plants but I am unsure about these latter two sensors).
I am not using any Routines at this time.
Any ideas on how I can tell ST to increase lights to 100% if motion is detected and dim them back to previous dim setting when motion stops or X minutes pass without motion - IF - the lights are on in the first place?
