I am trying to implement paradoxical DG85 motion sensors in Homey with the help of fibaro smart implant.
Have these around the house that previously lit outdoor lighting and lamp in the bedroom, upon activation (hardwired with holding circuit ).
But now I want to use the motion sensors for so much more but not really succeed with what I want to achieve.
An example is that I want to use these to send a push message to my mobile both when I am at home that someone is coming and that I get a message when I am away that someone is outside the house.
So this is what i build so far but can’t find any solution for the problem stated below.
When : input 1 is open (alarm)
Then: Send push notification
The problem is that DG85 flip alarm output relay multiply times so I get a lot of push notifications.
the solution I am looking for is a flow that as the same function as a latching relay (keep relay). When the input to smart implant is false (in my configuration) it will keep that value and only send one push notification. And then create another flow that reset the value after a certain time.
The device may be sending multiple state change messages in quick succession, which will each trigger the flow before it can be disabled. I don’t think there’s any solution for that situation with Homey.
Okay, so I tried something different: instead of using Flow2, I triggered Flow1 on MQTT messages using the MQTT Client app. Two MQTT messages sent in quick succession still result in two notifications.
