Motion sensors are not working

I’m at my wits end.

First my hue motion sensor died because it’s not natively supported… I could accept this if I didn’t have all the following also have issues:

So I switched to my IKEA motion sensor. I’m not a hundred percent sure how I got it working three years ago but I don’t remember it being a hassle to get the E1745 to work.

Now neither of them works. After much fiddling and hair pulling, the ikea one re-pairs… And that’s it… Motion detects but routines don’t work.

So I bought a hue bridge and migrated (with far more fiddling than needed Philips) my hue lights that were still working natively on smartthings to the hue bridge.

Ikea Motion sensor still does not activate lights.

So I’ve now tried the hue motion sensor on the hue hub… That’s paired…but doesn’t show up in smart things…

This shouldn’t be this painful.

Is there anything else I can do to get this working?

for the hue motion sensor, you may want to look at @blueyetisoftware Edge driver for Hue

for the ikea motion sensor, install @Mariano_Colmenarejo Zigbee Motion Sensor MC Edge driver and change the device over to it.
