Trying to use two motion sensors on one switch


(James L) #1

I’m still trying to figure out WebCoRE but having some trouble, but I was wondering if there is a simpler way to do this. I have it setup using Smart Lighting. I have it setup for the light to go on with either motion sensor and selected “Turn off after motion stops”. I assumed that would mean when motion stopped on both sensors however it turns off when one sensor shows “No Motion” even when the other sensor still shows motion. I am using GE Smart motion sensors.

Thanks,
James

I believe I got WebCoRE working if that’s the only way, I just have to figure out how to program it. Any other options would be appreciated.

Mike Maxwell wrote an excellent Smart app which will let you assign multiple motion sensors to one zone and then treat them all as one motion sensor. Once the zone device gets created you can use it in the official smart lighting feature or anything else which uses motion sensors. So You could do it that way. :sunglasses:

That does sound like what I need. Now I just have to figure out how to set it up.

Thanks you

Sorry JDRoberts I am a ST newbie. Where do you get these components that need to be installed? And I am assuming that this is to be installed in Smartthings the same place the webCoRE components were installed,under MY SmartApps on https://graph.api.smartthings.com/ide/apps

Thanks

You can ask any specific questions in the author’s thread for any code that you were trying to install. That way the author automatically gets notified when a question is posted, and other people who are using the same code can also help. :sunglasses: So just follow the link I gave you previously and that should tell you were to get whatever code you need.

The following thread gives an overview of the process and explains the terminology and basic concepts if that’s of any help.
