@bbholthome please update to the dev.branch version 1.5.2
There are some small changes in it, trying to achieve the MVP - presence detection (motion) working and reducing the spamming messages. Let's see if this true 24Ghz radar will work OK with the default settings.
I sat still on purpose to get the inactive event. I see no evidence of the flicker between active and inactive for a few milliseconds. Great work but are you not concerned about all the distance reports putting a heavy load on the hub? So far I see no evidence of it.
In terms of having the lights go out while I'm sitting still I'm not see any improvement over my Aqara FP1. Retriggering the lights back on after the lights go out is better with this device. The field of view seems wider, the lights come on sooner when I enter the room.
I'm going to play around with the settings to see if I can get the small movement detection better. So far I haven't been able to make any improvements.
I've been very pleased with the so called "spammy" 24GHz wall sensor in our tenant space. Working exactly as needed. Running it on HA with no noticeable disruption, so I've decided to buy two more from the same seller. They say they've got both 24 and 5 GHz versions, so I specifically ordered the 24GHz versions and hopefully they deliver that.
I've really changed my mindset about mmW, and it's place in my home. These are going to save me a ton by lowering the heat setting in unoccupied spaces. For this minor investment of $24 US a piece, I'll save hunderds of dollars this Winter.
Clearly you've never owned a cat...a box is just a puzzle waiting to be solved.
I'm actually going to try mounting one to the bottom of our bed, that way I can run the cord along the bedframe so it won't be run over by the primary bedroom robovac. Biggest issue will be reaching the spot where I want it w/out taking the mattress and box spring off the bed. If I can't reach then I'm try at the foot of the bed pointed towards the headboard.
Does this model support MMwave?
The device works fine when I use it just for motion under YXZBRB58_RADAR Profile.
The device becomes non responsive when I change the profile to Human Presence MMwave Radar profile.
It looks like one of the 5.8GHz radars. Not technically millimeter wave, but much more sensitive than PIR. I would suggest using the profile that works. This driver covers quite a few different sensors. They are all radar, some 24GHz, but most are 5.8.
@jiggy_nubn Which may also mean that it will "see ghosts" through walls, e.g., sensor sees motion in another room through a wall (if I remember some posts here) so you may have play w/placement and any available sensitivity settings you have access to, to deal w/that.
