Motion detection with mini detector(s)

What is motion detection with mini detector(s)?

The routine Motion detection with mini detector(s)  switches on one or several lamps when movement is detected. You can programme dimmable lamps to switch on with a certain light intensity. You can choose when the motion detection should be activated:

  • in light and darkness

  • only in darkness, when the light intensity is lower than an adjustable threshold value

If no presence is detected during a certain, pre-defined period of time, the lamps will switch off. You can extend the detection range by selecting additional mini detectors as secondaries.

Starting point

  • You have created the following controls and devices:

    • a mini detector

    • (optional) several mini 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 mini detector(s).

  5. Give the routine a name.

  6. Set the behaviour as follows:

    BehaviourWhat?How?
    AChoose the master mini 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 mini detector you want to include in the routine.


    B( optional ) Choose additional  mini detectors (secondary).
    Secondary means that the light measured by this detector will not be used to decide whether or not to activate the routine.

    Click on the plus signs of the 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:
    • deactivate 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 modePresence detectionThe mini detector switches on the light.

    Absence detectionSwitch on the light manually. The mini detector switches off the light when no more movement is detected.
    Light sensor operating modeDark and light
    The routine is performed whenever movement is detected , regardless of the light level.

    Dark only

    The routine is only performed when movement is detected and the light level is low.

    This parameter applies to all mini detectors used.

    Switch-off initiatorLight level

    The routine is disabled as soon as the programmed light level is exceeded, even when there is still movement.

    By default, light has priority.

    No movement

    The routine is disabled as soon as no more movement is detected, even when there is sufficient light.

    Light threshold (lux)0 - 25,000 luxStandard: 100 lux

    Switch-off delay0 - 23 hrs. 59 min. 59 sec.Standard: 1 min.
