I know this topic has been discussed (countless) times but I’d love some suggestions on a motion sensor specific to my application.
Turn on garage ceiling lights when motion is detected in the garage.
Do NOT turn on lights if garage has enough light already (aka, I’m working in the garage during the day with the garage door open - plenty of light).
Great range. Can detect motion from someone coming in the door approximately 20-25 feet froms sensor.
Battery life!!! GOOD!!! It’s going high up in the air. Reachable by ladder only.
What Doesn’t Matter
- Pet exclusions. No pets in the garage
From the research I did I was going to pounce on an iris sensor. However, a TON of amazon reviews showed HORRIBLE battery life. https://www.amazon.com/Iris-Smart-Home-Management-3326-L1/dp/B01GCKAF6K/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1520804722&sr=1-3&keywords=iris+motion+sensor
