I have a couple of Aqara motion sensors to switch my lights. I have put the cool down period on 60 seconds. I notice that it seems to always switch to no motion alarms after 60 seconds, so my question is the following:
- Does 60 seconds cooldown period mean 60 seconds no movement or
- When it sees motion it stops working for 60 seconds until motion alarm goes off again. And then it starts measuring again.
I now have my flows base on nr.1, but I have a feeling it should be nr.2, anyone have experience with this?
I believe it’s the second. It’s blind for 60 seconds
Yes, it’s the second. A bit of a pain in some specific instances.
you can hack the sensor by soldering a wire in it that makes an internal connection on the PCB.
He then responds again after 5 seconds instead of 60.
I’ve done it with a HB pencil, works just as goes but a lot saver for some😉
That’s indeed annoying, I didn’t realize 60 seconds is the minimum. 5 seconds indeed would be better for this instance…
You only need to connect those? No firmware upgrade or something. Connect this and it works?
Edit: I see in homey there’s the option ‘hacked sensor’. That’s it? Connect the 2 contacts and select ‘hacked sensor’?
