Whats the best way of making a Motion Sensor QuickApp


Recommended Posts

I have a number of security PIRS that are connected to fibaro switches.  With HC2, there was always a danger of users turning them off, because they are switches, thus masking the status from the input.


So, I am going to make them into QuickApps as motion sensors.


I can't decide if I should just update the status in a loop or make it event-based on the switch status


  • If it's in a loop, it can't be slower than every five seconds, otherwise it will be useless.  Will this be too much activity (I have nearly 200 devices and 5 of these to do)
  • If it's event-based, 
    • I still have to find out how to integrate an event from a device.
    • Will the QA get overwhelmed if someone is dancing in front of the PIR sensor?


Has anyone done this sort of thing yet?

5 pirs? you can do a 1sec loop.

or you could install the TriggerQA


Then it's easy to get sourceTriggers in your own QA - almost like a Scene...

    I am trying to make things more efficient this time with HC3.  On the HC2, on the advice of the installer, I had to suspend a lot of my stuff as the HC was too slow.  Including Heatpump controllers that I had purchased. In fact, they were the worst offenders.  It was so bad, that I had to disable all scenes before a backup or it would never start up after. I had a scene to disable/enable all other scenes.
