I spent some time going over the site looking to see if there is a to have my lights stay on when I use Google home or my Philip hue switch to turn on the light and have them stay on even if no motion is detected.
Currently I am using Smart Lighting to accomplish the simple on and off which is working great but now I want to complicate it a little more so I don’t get a second of darkness before they lights turn on again if i happen to be watching TV / not moving.
I’m not sure what the best way to accomplish this.
Control Method: Google home Mini, Hue Switch, & Xiaomi Motion Sensor
Automation App: Smart Lighting, (played with Webcore and got it working periodically but smart lighting was much simpler so stuck with that)
Plan: If using Hue switch or Google home mini to turn on the light, the lights will stay on until i turn them off. If i turn them on with motion then they will turn off automatically.
I was debating on getting a SYLVANIA LIGHTIFY Dimmer Switch with hopes that it would make it easier but don’t want to purchase it unless it makes sense. I looked at getting Z-wave switches but as my house is older and has a bunch of pigtails due to aluminum wiring there just isn’t enough space in the gang box to fit most Z-wave switches.
Thanks for your help/ input
