I picked up a Smartsense Motion Sensor in hopes that it would turn off a plug when it stopped sensing motion. I found a Smartapp under “Kids” to turn control lights which seemed suitable, but it only seems to function in the evenings (or specifically after sunset). Without looking at the app itself, it seems to have a rule for “don’t turn on the lights during the day time”.
So a bit more detail about what I’m trying to accomplish. Its basically automating the shutdown of a 3D-printer when a print is done. The printer is plugged into a Leviton appliance plug and the motion sensor is placed to monitor the movement of the printbed. When the print is done, the bed should stop. After 20 minutes, I want the printer to power off. Useful for long prints which almost always seem to end in the early morning hours…
Anyone have a different app I can try? Or is there a setting I can specify in the current smartapp? Perhaps the sunrise off-set?
