Can I get some help please.
I have bought 2 of the v3.2 units to test out as a replacement to the Philips Hue Motion Sensor - the Hue sensors just end up switching lights off after the CoRE piston count down, off for a few seconds and then back on even though there is constant motion, or they just don’t detect the motion right in its path).
So far my testing shows these are slower to react to Motion than the Philips (from testing, speed of reaction quickest to slowest is ST motion sensor (which I know is local processing hence the reaction time), Philips Hue and then Fibaro).
But my question is regarding sending updates to these sensors. I have read al the previous comments but just can’t see to get it to work. The initial install of variables has gone fine but I wanted to tweak a couple of settings and make sure they are uploading. I have found the 2 hour auto update doesn’t seem to occur and the logs show needUpdate:Yes constantly as can be seen from the below pics.
I have tried making my changes in the IDE device handler and also in the app, clicking save and then pressing the button on the sensor 3 times so the blue led comes on. needUpdate still says yes. I have tried making a tweak to a variable, click the button 3 times and then when the light is on clicking on save. No joy - needUpdate still says yes. I’ve tried pressing the Pending button in the app both before and after 3 button click on the device and still no joy. What am I doing wrong to get the settings sent over?
Oh, and if anyone is curious about the sticky pad that came with the unit, don’t use it. I put one of the sensors up with that (on the coving) and overnight it had peeled off and I found the unit on the floor this morning.
Any suggestions to get the sensor to react quicker for turning lights on with my CoRE pistons also greatfully received.
