What latency can i expect? (Bathroom light, re-visited)




I would like to place an Aeon 4-in-1 in my main bathroom, along with two fibaro dimmer modules.

I would like to use LUA in order to bring the lights up to 25% if global var "HouseIsSleeping" is set, and 100% if it is not. And then turn the lights off 30 seconds after the sensor returns to "safe". (Yes, that counter needs to restart on every movement, i know..)

I am sure you understand the logic, I do not want to be blinded if i get up in the night to go to the bathroom.

But, I have read some threads to indicate that the aeon may be slow? Is that the case?

I figure i would run the scene with a 2 second sleep to make it pretty responsive?

Or, could i use a "Breach alert" to launch the scene?

I am using 4-in-1 in my bathroom as well

Most cases I am actually tun on lights based on door sensor

But if doors are open and someone is entering bathroom I am reacting on movement sensor as well

I have created scene which is launched based on change of value inserted in LUA script header

right after %%properties entry

I do not see any latency light is coming up right away after AEON is reporting movement.

Another thing is how AEON is responding on movement. Which is actually a biggest problem in my home. It is not alway recognizing movements properly

I can connect it with light intesity but sometimes I really need to start "dancing" in front of sensor to get him recognize me

I have similar results to Marcin. My sensor does have a lag though. It’s anywhere between almost instant to 1 to 2 seconds, however every now and then it just does not work or I have to “dance” around to get the sensor to recognise me.
