Hue motion sensor virtual device slow response


Question

Dear forum,

 

I googled a lot but cannot seem to find a solution. I bought a Philips Hue motion sensor and want to use it in my scenes. I wrote my own VD (loosely based on @Sankotronic's Hue VD) in order to use the motion sensor in my scenes. However, the response time is very slow. I read somewhere about a 3 second delay, not sure exactly what it is and if you can influence that. It correlates however with my observations that the VD seems to trigger itself every 3 seconds. For a motion sensor, you want instant response without delay. Anybody any suggestion how to speed up the VD response or how to read the data from the Hue motion sensor faster? I pasted my VD source below.

Can You write something more how to set up VD for HUE Motion Sensor.

 

I use Homebrige where i have added fibaro sensors and now i can trigger action in Homekit for them also using Hue Motion Sensors as actors.

  • Hi Kamol,

     

    Not sure what you would like to know. Can you explain a bit more what the info is that you are seeking?

    Hi @Haraldinho,

     

    Since you have to read status of the HUE motion sensor from HUE bridge and VD Main loop runs every 3 seconds, then only what is left is a simple scene that can loop every second and press button on VD. But this is not something I would recommend. I don't really see any benefits of using zigbee motion sensor where main controller is z-wave only.

     

    I have more than 30 Philips HUE bulbs and I control them with Fibaro motion sensors and that works perfectly since my HC2 is main controller so it communicates with HUE bridge only when it is necessary to control HUE bulbs.

     

    Maybe there is another way of using some raspi server that can send to HC2 API call every time when HUE motion sensor is breached but why complicate things?
