Hello, I need some clarification about the Philips motion sensor “no movement” behavior as I’m not sure I get it, or something is not working as expected.
I have configured a motion sensor, driving two bulbs, to turn them off after 2 minutes with no motion detected, this works well as long as the on/off process is fully controlled by the motion sensor. Let me explain:
I sometime need to anticipate the motion sensor and turn the bulbs on with the app or part of some automation. When doing that, I noticed that the motion sensor seems to be deactivated as the “no motion” action is not triggered. Is it the case when the motion sensor is not the “turn bulbs on” initiator?
I though that “return to the previous state” was the way to keep a bulb on when turned on by something other than the motion sensor prior to a motion detection?
Please can someone educate myself ?
