I'm just looking for some advice here for motion-based lighting controls for my basement man cave. I just got a motion sensor and started out with a set of manual Rule Machine rules, but just jumped into the Motion and Mode Lighting app since it seems like it may have the functionality I'm looking for.
So here's the situation:
I have a Lutron RR2 system that controls various switches, dimmers, and scenes in my basement. I put the motion sensor where it observes the entrance to the basement (stair landing).
What I want to do:
- Switch on all basement lights (dimmers and switches) when someone enters the room by sensing movement at the entrance.
- Turn off after x minute(s) of inactivity UNLESS a scene is activated, either by keypad or otherwise
- If "Basement Off" button is selected on keypad, turn off lights and disable motion sensing activation for x minutes to allow someone to exit the room without turning back on the lights by activating the sensor. It should also re-enable any motion-sensing override that may have been in place due to scene-selection.
I've got the first part (turning on lights and off again with no motion) but I'm a bit stumped on what to do next to get the override working for scenes and the "exit room" scenario. It seems like the options in the app should allow me to do it, but not really sure of the best approach.
