Motion detection with indoor detector(s)

What is Motion detection with indoor motion detector(s)?

The routine Motion detection with indoor motion detector(s) switches on one or several lamps when movement is detected inside or when the light intensity drops below the level set on the motion detector. If no movement is detected during a certain, pre-defined period of time, the lamps will switch off again. You can extend the detection range by connecting several indoor motion detectors.

Starting point

  • You have created the following controls and devices:

    • an indoor motion detector

    • (optional) several indoor motion detectors and/or single push button with feedback LED

    • a lamp

  • You are in the Create overview window.

Procedure

  1. In the right-hand button bar, click on the button Routine.
    Result:
    The Routine  pane appears.

  2. Choose the room as follows:

    • Choose Room from the drop-down list.

    • Click on the room in the drawing area.

  3. Click on the arrow next to the category Motion detection.

  4. Click on Motion detection with indoor motion detector(s).

  5. Give the routine a name.

  6. Set the behaviour as follows:

    BehaviourWhat?How?
    AChoose the master indoor motion detector which will activate the routine.
    Master means that the light measured by this detector will be used to decide whether or not to activate the routine.

    Click on the plus sign of the indoor motion detector you want to include in the routine.

    B(optional) Choose additional indoor motion detectors (secondary).
    Secondary means that only the motion measurement of this detector is used in this routine. The light measurement of the secondary detector is not used in the routine. 

    Click on the plus signs of the indoor motion detectors.

    CSelect devices for this routine.

    Click on the plus signs of the devices. You can activate switched lamps or dimmable lamps at a set value.
    In this example we have chosen one switched lamp.

    D(optional) Choose a control to perform one of the following actions:
    • overrule the routine (in case of presence detection). The device will always be on and will not be affected by the mini detector.
    • manually switch on devices and automatically switch them off (in case of absence detection)

    Click on the plus sign of the control.

    Use a push button with feedback LED so you can clearly see whether it is active or not.


    Use Multiselect to select various devices at the same time.


  7. Under Parameters, set the following:

    ParameterChoiceDescriptionExample
    Detection mode

    Presence detection (auto on, auto off)


    The indoor motion detector switches your light on and off 

    Absence detection (manual on, auto off)The light is switched on manually (via the control chosen in Behaviour D), the light is switched off by the indoor motion detector (when there is no more movement).
    Switch-off delay0 - 23 hrs. 59 min. 59 sec.

    Default value: 1 min.

    A delay of approximately 10 seconds will be added to the selected switch-off delay.

    For example: a switch-off delay value of 0s will be approximately 10s in reality.



  8. Click the Close button to return to the Routine pane.

  9. Click the Close button to return to the Create overview window.
