I think this would be a good option. So let me explain what I want to happen…
When we enter the room there are motion detectors that will turn on the lights. Here are my settings right now…
In Room Devices: I have my motion sensors under “Which Motion Sensors” and “Last Motion Active” under the Use which motion event for timeout? I have Basement TV Plug selected for “Which Power Meter”.
In Occupied Settings: I have 4 Basement Lights(hues) selected for “Which switch turns ON”
and Timeout of 360 seconds.
In Engaged Settings: When room is busy is set to Light Traffic; Powervalue to set room to ENGAGED state is set to 20 and Power stays below for how many seconds to reset ENGAGED state is set to 60; Require motion within how many seconds when room is ENGAGED is set to 360.
Checking Settings: For how many seconds is set to 10
This is all the settings right now. However, when I go into the room, it isn’t turning on the lights at all right now.
What I would like to happen is that when I enter the room, the lights will turn on (100% white). Then if I remain in the room with the TV not on, the lights will still remain on. If I set the lights to a different colour and dimming, I would like them to stay that way until the room is Vacant. I would also like the room lights to stay on if I am watching TV (sometimes we don’t move enough and the lights might go off). Also, if I change the colour or dimming of the lights(or both) while watching TV, I would like them to stay that way until the TV is turned off and the room is vacant. So in other words, I should be able to change the lights and the don’t revert back to the turning on state. I did have a Webcore piston also setup to help with this but I was having problems with the lights going back to 100% white every so often after we had changed the colour and dimming. Hope this makes sense.
What IS happening right now is nothing. The lights aren’t turning on when I enter the room but the room is changing to Occupied.
