I have two motion sensors I’m testing for use with automated lighting (on/off). One is the Philips Hue Motion Sensor, which has a really nice magnetic mounting bracket, but I have real trouble getting it to trigger motion events in SmartThings. For example, it right now it has seen no motion for almost 15 minutes and it hasn’t changed state to inactive. But earlier I walked around with it for 5 minutes before it would change its state to active. Funny enough the illuminance and temperature changes seem to come across regularly.
I also bought a SmartThings motion sensor, but according to Amazon these newer ones aren’t very good. In fact mine has lost connection to SmartThings within 24 hours and I can’t get it back onto the network.
Are there better options out there?
