I’m looking for a SmartThings compatible motion sensor that I can mount in a wall switch box. I have found a thread about this GE motion sensor and switch product that might work. (I can easily ignore the switch by not connecting anything), but am wondering if the motion sensor part in that works well by itself as a sensor or if there is a better option.
Background: I got my SmartThings hub a week ago. I have installed Lutron dimmers on my lights and Sensative strips on the doors and windows. I have the intrusion alarm working to send me text messages and I have the lights behaving randomly in the evening. It took a bit of experimentation, but it’s working now. From this forum I see there is a bit of controversy about the new or classic app. I’m using the new. Not because of any overt decision, it’s just where I started, before I knew anything.
I’ve tried a couple of motion sensors and have them working too, but don’t like how they are placed in the house. If I could put one in the wall in a switch box next to the other switches, it would be a lot more discrete. I also wouldn’t mind wiring it in so there would be 1 less battery to change.
