I have been trying to think of the cheapest way to have the following occur. I have my lights in my kitchen all set up on motion and lux sensors. For the most part they work great, but I have found that if you are sitting at the sink of oven for too long the lights will turn off. So I am looking for suggestions on how to get the sink lights to stay on if you’re washing (Bottles or Dishes) or prepping food to cook. I thought about extending the delay before it turns off, but I don’t want to leave these light on longer than they need to be if someone isn’t at the sink.
Here are my requirements:
- Sensor can not be in the sink. (a Probe for a moisture sensor is
acceptable but where would I place it and how would I get it there?)
- Lights off after motion stops and/or water is turned off.
- Lux Level Settings
- Do not want to use beacon. We don’t always have a phone or sensor on us
Apply the same logic if the oven is on.
