Automation doesn't work - aqara motion sensor

Cupertino, April 19, 2020


I recently installed an aqara motion sensor, but I had problems with triggering automation in Homekit.

The sender is always "triggered", motion is detected, but the proper automation starts half the time. Some time the automation works and sometimes it won't be good.

I tested this with several sensors in different settings and they all have the same problem. The other automations work well, but they last a long time.

After some research, I think the problem may be the focus. I use an Ipad as a hub. The hub is fully powered and fully charged, so it should work. I still think the error is in the ipad, because it is this device that does the automation. I read somewhere that with the latest iOS update, the iPad stays in "standby" mode and has difficulty starting up the automation.

So I wonder if there are others who have the same problem as me?
