two motion sensors, one lightswitch... but quickly turns on


Recommended Posts

Yes, I am asking for the sun, moon and stars here.  I need to motion sensors for my garage.  It is big enough that one won't cover the size of it so the lights either don't go on or go off when I am in there.

I'd like either motion sensor to turn the light on FAST.  I can do this by connecting the switch directly to the motion sensor but then the motion sensor will turn the light off when I don't want it to.

I can come up with the programming for both of them to keep the light on easily but I'm trying to figure out how to get the light to go on fast and when the ISY is the one that turns the lights on, that extra second or so of time is what I'm trying to avoid.

This can be done with scenes as you are working on:

  • Take the motions sensors down, and one at a time,
  • put one in linking mode by pressing the set button for few seconds
  • set the options in the admin console for the motion sensor to "Send on commands only". 
  • repeat for the second motion sensor

You probably have this,  a program that checks for either ("or") motion sensor to be "switched on" , wait and send the off to the same scene, assuming there is more than one light switch involved
