I have a hallway leading into my Master bathroom. I have a motion sensory in the bathroom that turns on the lights and a contact sensory on the door that when closed I want it to keep the lights on regardless of motion. However I can’t seem to sort this out. Once the motion sensory detects motion the lights turns on, but if I shut the bathroom door and stand motionless the lights still go off. How do I accomplish this?
Sorry I’m not Hubitat user but I believe webcore still works the same.
How do you turn off the lights when no motion? any piston?
I use both and for something like this it would be pretty much identical.
So post your piston and perhaps someone can give you some pointers.
I would think just adding an IF right after the command that determines activity has stopped would work.
If Contact is open
turn off light
I would attack this from both angles…
Motion Sensor piston
IF Sensor's motion changes to active <-- Trigger Then Turn on light END IF IF Sensor's motion stays inactive for 5 min <-- Trigger Then IF Door is open <-- Condition Then Turn off light END IF END IF
Door Contact piston
IF Door's contact changes to closed <-- Trigger Then Turn on light END IF IF Door's contact stays open for 5 min <-- Trigger Then Turn off light END IF
Lighting on with motion
Thanks, will give this a try
