Update: So, i'm looking at getting indoor Hue Indoor motion sensors, and using some electrical tape to adjust the angle of the detection. Will let everyone know how well this works.
So, I'm looking for a Zigbee motion sensor that is "narrow" as possible.
Problem Statement: I have an automation when I open my front door to turn on my barn lights, our covered walkway lights, and my front porch lights after dark. Issue is sometimes I'm just taking out the trash/letting our ■■■■■■■ cat out. (Same thing) so I don't need the other lights to turn on.
So, i'm looking for a near "pet proof" motion sensor. It'll be placed at waist height between the two beams on the way through the walkway. I actually use beam sensors for my gates, and I'd prefer an IR beam solution, but those seem like royal pains to get one that's "smart"'d enough. So really, I just need a motion sensor that doesn't detect the cats/critters walking through the walkway at night. The two 6" posts are about 6ft apart. I'm not sure how they "sense" as far as field of view, but if possible they should be extremely narrow, mainly in vertical orientation.
Any recommendations? Maybe as simple as putting an a Hue outdoor motion sensor upside down? using black type over the cover?
