Set presence with motion?

Hi all,

Do any of you know how I can set my presence to x if no motion is detected within y amount of time? I dont want to use a presence sensor but want to set a one way presence as a fail safe using motion.


You will have to be using the SmartThings classic mobile app, not “smartthings (Samsung connect).”

Then You can use a virtual presence sensor which can also act as a switch. Then you just turn that switch on or off as you like based on other things happening.

The following is popular:

You’ll be able to turn the switch on and off just using the official smartlights feature if you want. :sunglasses:

I’m sure there’s also a fancier way to do it with webcore, but this way will work.


Thanks @JDRoberts! This should be great.
