Can someone help me figure out the logic of how I'd make this work? I have a motion sensor I embedded into the step (I can take pics of it later if folks are interested in how; let's see how long it actually lasts before people go doing this...). I want to use this to detect when the dog is ready to come in. This is what I'm thinking.
Back Door contact Open
Motion her her walking down the steps to go out will trigger motion - so want to exclude this - perhaps an if-cancel rule?
Back Door contact Close
Back Door Lock
If motion on back step when door is locked == dog is ready to come in.
I'm just trying to figure out how to configure this rule so that it "arms" after a certain period of time after the door is opened, closed then locked. If the door is open/closed and never locked, I don't want to trigger for any motion (i.e. people going in and out). I'm ok if there is a false alert if the door is locked and it's a person walking up to a locked door.
Any pointers to get me going in the right direction?
