I keep a presence/arrival sensor in the glove box of my car so when it arrives it triggers an “I’m Back” routine. This morning i realised that this routine had been executed during the night so I checked the logs and it turns out the car presence sensor had been going crazy, reporting leave/arrive events all night. I have seen this happen very occasionally before and so have set the “Minimum away time (minutes)” value in the “I’m Back” routine to 5 mins but last night’s behaviour was ridiculous. Some of the arrive events exceeded the 5 min threshold and therefore triggered the “I’m Back” routine.
So i could try and work around this problem but ideally the presence sensor wouldn’t teleport like this in the first place!
I checked the previous night’s log and there is only one leave/arrive event and this was short enough to not trigger the routine. So, the only thing i can think of that might have caused it was the fact that we had a pretty heavy thunder and lightning storm last night and it has been unusually warm. Can these sensors be affected by such environmental conditions?!
