Tried to migrate from a C7 to C8 today followed all the steps. More or less everything (Z wave sensors, Zigbee sensors, some Zigbee bulbs and a lot of Hue/INNR bulbs connected to a Hue hub) is working fine BUT the Motion Zone controller in RM is not working. This is a problem because I have several motion sensor aggregations (bathroom, living room etc) in place which are designed to prevent the lights from shutting off until all the sensors in an 'aggregate' have not detected any motion for X minutes. Tried the following
Deleting and installing motion aggregation zones
Rebooted C8 several times
Re-Restored (from cloud backup)
Can't get the motion control to work in rule machine. The individual motion sensors in the aggregations are working (they go 'active' on the app and if I program a rule for any of them to trigger the lights on motion, they do)
I've ended up going back to the C7 for now where motion zoning is working fine. Is this a known "BUG" in C8?? Any fixes or suggestions?
This doesn't solve the issue you're having w/Motion Zones, but have you just tried directly adding motion sensors you want to act on to an automation?
For example, in Room Lighting I have an automation that triggers a light if any of a number of sensors are activated, and only turns it off when all sensors are inactive. I've used this for ages and haven't had any issues w/it. I'm only turning on one light, but you can add as many lights as you want, of course:
Do you have a specific need for motion zones that can't be accomplished w/out them? Main reason at this point for motion zones seems to be when you are using the same set of motion sensors across multiple automations, so would save you a a few minutes when you have to add/update sensors in the zone. If you're creating a separate zone for each automation, might as well just add the motion sensors directly to the automation. Should not be any difference in the result, AFAIK.
