[FGMS-001] repeated trigger under continuous motion



Dear all,

Is it correct that the Fibaro motion sensor only picks up motion after a period without motion?

I am not sure whether this makes sense, but I experience the following:

- The motion sensor is working fine when I enter a room (motion is detected); if I enter within the 'blind time' (e.g. 6 seconds) nothing happens, but other than that motion is picked up properly

- However, when I remain in the room, there is not a signal detected every 'blind time' (in the example every 6 seconds). It can take minutes before a new signal is being detected.


I would need this repeated signal for a specific application. Can this be changed or worked around? I cannot find anything in this regard in the manual's list of parameters..


Thanks, J

  • Thanks @Thomasn!

    Forgive me my ignorance on the inner workings of the motion sensor. Should I expect 'better' behaviour with higher sensitivity (because of more triggers) or lower sensitivity (less overload)?

    There is a warning about changing the sensitivity in the sensor's settings menu. I have no problems with fibaro sensors and their detection of movement. And I have not changed the standard settings.
