Automation of the movement of the shade

Cupertino, October 20, 2020


I recently received a second Hue motion sensor, but unlike the first one it controls a Lightwave switch, not other hue lights. The first motion sensor works perfectly through the Hue app, but I had to use HomeKit automation for the new one. I tried the following with no good results. Does anyone have an automation that works in this situation

1. 2 automations, one for motion is detected turns on the light. The second automation if no movement is detected turns off the lights. This wasn't good, every time you took a break you were plunged into darkness.

2. 1 automation, if motion is detected, turn on the light and leave it on for 3 minutes. The problem with this is that automation does not seem to be constantly active. one turned on the lights come on, stay on for three minutes and then go out, even if it detects movement at that time, the three minutes do not seem to reset.

Has anyone been lucky with this type of automation? Maybe I'm missing something obvious?
