Disable Hue Motion Sensor

Your Hue Motion Sensor driver has a setting to set the sensitivity of the motion sense which included an option for “Disable”. It would be a huge battery saver if there was a way to set the motion sensor to Disabled based on a rule or on illuminance or something like that. What I am envisioning for ultimate flexibility would be a Custom Action exposed to RM so that you could enable and disable motion sense messages at your option based on conditions of your choosing. If that ability is there, I can’t find it.

Can we put this in as an enhancement request to that driver?


With the Hue Outdoor Motion ("Dusk to Dawn") I have found it impossible to disable lux reporting (even when setting to disabled on the device page) which would also seem to be a potential battery saver (if you could actually disable it).
