‘No motion duration’ isn’t working correctly

So last night my tv just switched off at this time, but I figured it shouldn’t have as the living room motion sensor definitely had motion within that hour, in fact I’d literally just walked past it and triggered that sensor only 5 mins before 23:50. I’d have though it shouldnt let have switched off my harmony TV in this instance.

Any thoughts on this folks?
Thanks.

Using the options in the Automations is like flying blind on a rocket cycle.

I’ve not played with the options to find out what they really do, but I’d expect the ‘no motion for 30 minutes’ to represent a delay rather than a retrospective check. So what on earth does that mean when the automation is run at a fixed time?

Actually thinking more about it, it isn’t even clear how the conditions are being evaluated. It is tempting to think of Automations as running like a script, like webCoRE pistons are. However the ‘truth’ of each condition might be continuously updated independently for all I know. It makes a big difference.
