Newbee Question: restricting motion sensor alerts to a specific time period?

Hi Jim,

The motion detector itself is just a device, but what I think you want to do is have something happen between certain hours?

If that is the case, you can use a SmartApp called “Rule Machine” (commonly referred to as “RM”) to easily have something happen (like turn on lights) if a particular trigger (like motion detected) during certain hours of the day.

Here are a few links to get you started:
