I tried motion lighting at first but quickly found that some of the use-cases I'd developed on ST were too complicated for Motion Lighting. For example, in my bedroom, I have motion ending turning off the lights only if the dimmer is about 90%. If I'm laying in bed watching tv, I don't have the lights on full blast. But if I was in there making the bed, i would. It's an easy way to disable the motion control without having to do anything extra. Conversely in the bathroom, if the dimmer is over 95% (which with my LED bulbs is indistinguishable from 90% anyway) then motion will not turn off the lights. So, if i want to disable motion control, I just hold the dimmer till they're all the way up.
For the kitchen, i have motion turning the lights off in 5 minutes if just the overhead is on but if the dining area light is on, it turns it off in 30 minutes. This way, it doesn't turn off the lights while sitting at the dinner table.
Motion lighting will give you something you can start with but as you start to develop new ideas, you will probably have to migrate to Rule Machine to get those to work. But Motion Lighting has come a long way recently so it's definitely a great place to start.
