I'm new to Hubitat. Had Hue lights for ages, and use them with Hue motion sensors and Hue dimmers. Never had an issue.
Adopted Hubitat as I want to get more functionality, like flashing a bulb if outside temperature hits freezing, flashing another colour if outdoor motion sensor is activated etc.
My first task had been to sort the indoor lightingni have a motion sensor in the lounge, which I can successfully get to turn on lights when motion is detected AND illuminance is below a set level.
I don't want the lights to go brighter if motion is detected when I'm watching a movie with the lights on dim. I cannot seem to find a condition to use to prevent it. All I want to do is ONLY turn on the lights if motion is detected AND they are not already on.
I'm sure I'm missing something really simple, but can't seem to write this out. Can anyone help a hapless newbie please?
The rule will not dynamically re-evaluate the current true/false evaluations until you click the "Refresh actions list" button. It might also re-evaluate them when the "main" rule page (with conditions and triggers) is refreshed--it used to and I can't remember what they got rid of to improve performance--but they've never dynamically updated in any case. If your device page is reporting the correct state, you're likely fine, but the above should help with RM if you want to confirm.
Sharing a screenshot of your rule may also be helpful. It sounds like you're on the right track.
Thanks so much for your help guys. I'm reasonably tech savvy for a 50 year old, but I'm struggling to get to grips with the Hubitat system. I think maybe I'm over my head and should just stick with the hue app, even though it doesn't offer me the extra control I would like.
I'll have another stab at this tomorrow when my patience level gets back up to normal and update with my progress.
