Eve Smart Plug status issues with Philips Hue motion sensor

Eve Smart Plug status issues with Philips Hue motion sensor

So I try to create a simple automation using a Philips Hue motion sensor and having the power state of a smart Eve Energy connector, but I can’t work. Automation is practical: Shutter release: When motion is detected by Hue motion sensor status: Eve Smart Plug Power = ON Turn on the Philips Hue bulb. (The reason behind automation is to temporarily disable motion sensor functionality). The automation was created using the Home and Eve application. When you test the automation, nothing happens when you turn on the motion sensor (and when the smart connector power is on) or the light comes on even when the smart connector is OFF). I tried to remove and recreate the automation, disabling / activating the automation, switching the power on my ATV hub on / off, factory resetting the smart plug and anything else I could think of. Does anyone else have the same problem? Possible solutions?
