Automation based on person detection?

Automation based on person detection?

With a HomeKit compatible camera, HomeKit can detect a person. He can announce the event and distinguish between people, animals, vehicles and packages soon. But it does not provide a way to use this information to trigger automation. Here is my scenario: * Install an outdoor HKSV camera. It is displayed in the homekit as a camera and as a motion detector. ** SUCCESS ** * Set up notifications to inform only if a * person * (not animals or vehicles) is detected in the room. ** SUCCESS ** * Create an automation to turn on a light when a person is detected at night ** – it seems that this cannot be done. ** I can create an automation that is triggered when motion is detected, but not when motion is detected * and * is a person. Instead, the lights come on for any movement: animals, vehicles, branches in the wind. ** FAIL ** Has anyone found any way to avoid this limitation?
