Hey there and thanks in advance for your patience and help. I am just getting started and wanted to begin with a replacement, motion sensing switch for my already installed garage lights. These are my hopeful requirements:
No additional hub is required.
Motion sensing is good enough to leave the lights on while I'm still in the garage. Put differently, I've seen some switches that turn off or time out too soon.
Motion sensing is built into the actual switch (no additional hardware or rules required)
Kasa has this one as well, there is a Kasa integration but its not instant updates so the motion reporting would not be very quick. I am not totally sure if the integration fully supports this switch either. https://a.co/d/7VlQ3jW
My garage light was my first "automation" when I bought this house, before I decided on a plan for everything else. The wall switch was in a terrible spot and always got left on so I got a Legrand regular old dumb motion sensor/switch combo. Works great for that purpose. Might be nice to know if someone is in the garage, so I may add either a camera or a smart motion sensor at some point.
Where I live the police have to REMIND people to close their garage doors at night, as well as locking cars and doors. People leave their cars outside, unlocked, with garage door remotes in them... Usually this results in nothing, because its ruralish Wisconsin. But recently thieves started going around looking for that and some have gone in the house found the car keys and stolen the cars along with who knows what else. Meanwhile I'm like what sane person doesn't lock their car and house?
Can relate. I lived in Reedsburg (between Madison and Menomonie) for a few years in the early 90s. Yeah, we never locked our front door. One of the neighbor’s kids used to go feed and play with my pets. Sadly, those days are gone - especially where I live now (just outside New Orleans).
