I have the following motion sensor outside on my front door, and it’s going off due to false positives and/or bugs (it’s outdoor and I seen a bug flying in front of it setting it off).
I seen a few post on here, and one of them I liked was some method of using 2 motion sensors. The only problem is that method is out of date, and I have a feeling there is much easier/cheaper methods to go with. Looking up Ring it uses IR. Is there a bunch of false positives with their system? Is IR good for outdoor use?
BTW there is a little bit rush for me to get this one fixed. I have my motion sensor hooked up to my Google Home devices. When someone goes up to the front door, it alerts everyone. Some of the people were sleeping, and they weren’t too happy about this. So I’m looking for something with pretty much 0 problems with bugs and false positives. Any tips would be welcome
Would something like this be better? If so why or why not? https://www.amazon.com/Bosch-Pro-Grade-Wireless-Detector-ISW-ZPR1-WP13/dp/B00PRBMDKW/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1528252174&sr=8-4&keywords=outdoor+motion+sensor+smartthings
