Wiser motion sensor – What is detection delay and how do I program it?
07 September 2021
Detection delay can be set to 15, 30, 45 and 60 seconds as a preset option or you can set a custom time value between 1 second and 59 minute 59 seconds.Be aware that changing the detection delay value can change the battery life of the product.To explain how this works we will use 5 minutes detection delay as an example. When motion is detected the sensor sends the signal ‘occupied’ to the hub. If no more motion is detected within the 5 minutes the sensor will send the signal ‘unoccupied’. If there was motion detected during the 5 minutes the 5 minutes will restart again. This will continue restarting until no motion is detected.To configure the Wiser Motion sensor to control another Wiser product you will need to go into your Automations and create two Automations. One Automation as an ‘on’ and another as an ‘off’.The ‘on’ Automation can be created by first selecting to add a new Automation. Once open name the Automation accordingly. Add a condition ‘when device status changes’, select the motion sensor, select motion state and occupied. Then add an action of what you want to occur when the motion sensor detects motion. As an example, if you wanted to turn on a device you would add task of ‘run the device’. This will then bring up the list of devices you have to choose from to operate and once you select a device you can then select to turn it on or off.The ‘off’ Automation is the same as the ‘on’ Automation but select the motion sensor state of ‘unoccupied’ as the condition.
