Thank you for sharing Alex. We’ll look into adding parameters to the sensor as well. Sensitivity isn’t adjustable at all, the timer knob is to adjust retrigger time, so the time the sensor will not check for another motion event after the first event was reported. The purpose of this is to keep the lights on longer after the initial motion event as opposed to them turning on and off every few seconds in between movements. The lux adjustment knob is to decide what brightness level will trigger the associated lights to turn on so they don’t come on when it’s still daylight. We’ll explain it better in the next version of the manual and in the meantime, will create support articles in the knowledge base with details on the functionality.
We’ll also work on the tamper switch setting issue to make it more user friendly. Right now the tamper sets the LED indicator off (so it’s easier to test motion detection) while the knobs just make the sensor react faster so it’s 2 separate features that are activated by these actions. Since not all hubs support advanced parameter input, we wanted to possibly keep this process independent of the Z-Wave interface.
It shouldn’t take 10 seconds to trigger, detection is very fast for this one, so it may be a range issue in your case. Did you notice that delay when the sensor was close to SmartThings?
