turn off heat when no motion detected
« on: December 22, 2017, 04:45:45 pm »
How can I setup a scene where if there is no motion detected for 30 minutes, change the temperature on the CT100?
Basically I want to turn off the heat (set it to 65F) if nobody is in the basement.
I just installed a Monoprice motion detector in the room.
This automation is all new to me.
Thanks.

MY WORKAROUND.

I used the light sensor in the motion to trigger instead of motion detection.
So if the lux level increases above 5 lux, it triggers a scene that turns up the temperature.
Another scene is triggered when the lux level goes blow 5 to turn down the temperature.
