I have a rule that goes like this:
when motion detected in room 1
pause 12 sec
turn on a light at 15% in room 2
What happens is that when you leave room 2 it trips the motion again and the light in room 1 comes back on 12 sec later!
I have tried everything I can think of to delay the tripping of the motion so you can get out out of room 1.
Any ideas on how to make this work? thanks
Do you have another rule that turns light 1 on? You haven't mentioned it being turned on above.
I f so, you might be able to pause the rule that turns light 1 on for a short period after light 2 turns on.
There is only 1 light. Maybe I can explain this way. Room 1 is the master bedroom and room 2 is the master bath. The light I am turning on is in the master bath. So you walk across the master BR and enter the master bath. When the motion detector trips in the master bedroom you have about 12 sec before the light in the master bath turns on to 15%. The reason for the 12 sec is do to the place where I had to put the motion detector.
But, you have to pass by the motion sensor again to get across the master BR to the bed. Meanwhile it trips again and the light comes back on in 12 sec in the master bath.
Add a new trigger, when your master bath switch turns off, set Private Boolean false for your original rule, then set it back to true after 1 minute or so. Then go back to your original rule and turn on the Enable/Disable with Private Boolean restriction.
This will prevent your original rule from firing again for 1 minute after the master bathroom light turns off.
how about this. create a virtual switch and have this condition.
If motion is active and Light is off = turn on virtual switch and light at 15%
If motion is active and virtual switch is ON = turn off light and and turn off virtual switch with delay time to accommodate for the motion sensor.
I guess it's similar to @destructure00
