I have several automations setup using the Smart Lighting Smart app which sometimes run instantly and sometimes really lag (20-30 seconds).
To give an example:
I have an automation which triggers based on motion being detected on my stairway and switches on the landing light…
Sometimes the light will illuminate when I get to the bottom of the stairs, whilst other times I will get all the way to the top of the stairs before the light illuminates.
The devices I am using are:
SmartThings V3 hub
SmartThings Motion Sensors (2019)
Philips Hue colour bulb connected via a hue Bridge V2
I can see via the SmartThings app that the motion sensor doesn’t detect the motion until I reach the top of the stairs when the lag occurs but unsure what would cause the random lag with motion detection… Is it the motion sensor or a lag in reporting to the app and automation.
