Motion Sensor safe delay



Is it correct to use the red block in order to specify the time neede for the motion sensor to be safe before taking action? I understand that the red block is a delay block but i see no other solution.

What i want is to trigger a scene if the motion sensor is safe for 30 minutes. It randomly works and i get a lot of number of instances warning.

Thank you for your inputs.

any "while" for timed value actions in your lua script will freeze your main body life cycles (you script still active in processes FIBARO HC).

so, for example, if you hold script on 30 mins and during 30 mins you have 100 motions - you will have at the least 100 copies of runned scripts here.

if you have 100 motions in first 5 mins and you waiting for 30 mins..... OMG!!.... right, yeah?


so, my IMHO you can 

1) terminate script asap. save os.time for example in global table

2) create another script what check motion state safe, compare current time and global time (saved in prev step) - do what you wish




create script with

1) %% autostart


while true do    

-- some logic with safe / breached here

fibaro:sleep(1000 * 60);  -- every minute for example





search ready for use scripts or look to @Sankotronic "tearline"  :) 


Have a nice day,
