Fibaro motion sensor LUX?

Hey Guys

Having problems creating a flow with a fibaro motion sensor - it should be quite simple all I want is the motion sensor to activate a switch in between a certain time and with the LUX below a certain value - I create the flow with the “The motion alarm turned on” on the when card and the “The time is between 16:00 and 00:00” on the And card but I can’t also add the LUX to the And card as it’s not available - when I create it this way it works but obviously it works when LUX is at any state - any ideas why I can’t add the LUX to the And card

Motion sensor flow

You could try this with logic (just set that up with a Neo sensor, but will work the same with Fibaro

This only triggers when you set off the motion alarm, if you want to turn on the lights even without motion, you can use Luminance changed for the first card (doesn’t work with aqara sensors since they need a motion trigger to send the LUX value as far as I know, but should work for Neo and Fibaro

Thank you will give that a go - I’m just getting a feel to my new homey pro only had it a week - been doing some testing with some spare devices I have before I start migrating over from Vera plus

Possibilities are almost endless with Homey, it just takes some time to find the right way to do things, so feel free to ask the community any time, plenty of people here that want to help others :+1:

Thanks will do - I know there is a learning curve with it but exited to learn the possibilities of homey - this is why I chose homey to migrate from my Vera plus after 10 years of being with Vera

I got that working thank you - I wanted to expand on that flow - I added another flow to turn the light off - but I don’t think that’s the right way to do it - I have messed about with a countdown timer but I also want it to reset if motion is still detected - I have read some posts on here but still had no luck - can anyone point me in the right direction please - sure I’m missing something out

You kinda need multiple flows, this post explains it in detail, including screenshots

Thanks Chris - that’s a really great step by step guide
