Not sure if this is something I can control in Recator or Delaylight, or if this is a problem with Vera itself that’s typical and something I have to live with!
I have a Zooz ZSE18 motion sensor that I’ve tied to delay-light as a trigger device. Of course, it’s supposed to turn on the lights when it sees motion. I’ve noticed when no one has been in the room for some time, there seems to be an inexplicable delay in activating the lights when motion is detected. (~10 sec). But if someone has been in the room recently and the lights have gone through an on/off cycle, they turn on with relatively little delay. (< 2 sec)
The Zooz sensor has a little blue light that flashes when motion is detected, and the light seems to come on almost instantly in both cases (i.e. whether someone’s been in the room recently or not). But as described above, if the lights have been inactive for some time, there’s a delay (like ~10 seconds) before the lights come on. So the Zooz sensor is detecting motion, it just seems the downstream sensors aren’t responding to the signal always in short order.
I tried setting up a reactor sensor to monitor the state of the Zooz sensor, and use that as a trigger for delaylight, but it makes no difference, the behavior is the same as if I use the Zooz sensor as a trigger for delay-light directly.
Any ideas on what would cause the excess delay in turning on the lights when they’ve been inactive for some time? Is there a work-around for this kind of behavior so that it responds more expeditiously. lol
appreciate any advice.
