[Request] Sound alarm/trigger a notification if motion sensor detect action more than 1 min



Hi all,

I try to build a smart alarm system. I installed on entrance on a apartment a motion sensor. People sometimes pass outside apartment that can cause a false alarm. I like to ask from experts if you can build a basic sence that can count 1 minute after the first trigger and if there is activity/motion to sound alarm.

As it is common burglars for security doors need from 30 sec to 5 min to open this kind of doors, in my opinion if someone will stay outside to my door, will not do that for a good reason.

I believe that fibaro can give the flexibility that no other alarm system can provide.

@korniza I have similar solution but for monitoring fibaro door sensor, below is the code.


Please login or register to see this code.

For alert you can do whatever you like, I just do a pushOver message and a TTS message send to my andriod+bluetooth speaker at home. Main function is fibaro:getModificationTime().


Difference is someone needs to keep moving (keep motion sensor value = 1), while door sensor doesn't have such requirement..

local doorStatus = fibaro:getValue(doorSensorId, "value")

fibaro:debug('door status is ' .. doorStatus)

while doorStatus == "1" do

local lastMod = fibaro:getModificationTime(doorSensorId, 'value')
