This is a simple question. I have a Reactor sensor set up as shown below.
I expected the motion sensor (reardeck_motion_sun) condition to act like a pulse and would momentarily go green/true (when watching in the status window). However, it stays green/true for the time equal to the motion sensor’s reset time.
Is this what I should be seeing?
I set up my actions to turn a virtual switch (rear_floods_motion_c) to 1 to indicate the motion sensor turned on the light.
This allows me to turn on the light manually and not have the automation turn them off. But with the above, I cannot manually turn off the light until the motion sensor resets.
I am not sure how ‘pulse’ in the group would help - it seems once the lights are manually turned off, the group is true again if the motion sensor has not reset. I don’t think I can set a latch for a duration, because a manual light turn-off will reset the latch enabling the group to go positive again. And I am not sure if the ‘activity’ is only when the group goes true or is executed as long as the group is true (I am limited in my testing right now).
I have read through the Reactor documentation and missed what I need. Any recommendation is appreciated.
