I have a motion sensor and Hue lights downstairs. I want the motion sensor to turn on the lights when I come down the stairs.
However, that’s our movie room. So if I turn the lights off, I don’t want them turning back on every time I move while watching a movie.
So I guess what I’m looking to do is
If Downstairs motion is true And The room has been still for > 15 minutes Then Turn the lights on
I’m currently accomplishing this with a mode setting. If we go downstairs, the system enters “Downstairs” mode. If downstairs is still for 15 minutes, it returns to “Home”. Which works fine, until I want to repeat this in another room. So I need the flexibility to be able to do this in other room as well, so I don’t think modes are the best way.
I assume what I need is a CoRE piston, but I haven’t played with CoRE much.
