Motion-controlled lights - Turn off after x minutes

Cupertino, December 25, 2021

For the holidays, I received an Aqara motion sensor to go with the existing H1 wall switch and the M2 hub. In HomeKit we have configured an automation so that it turns on the light after detecting the movement and stops after 3 minutes. I was later in the hallway and I was getting ready to leave and the light went out while I was still in the hallway, basically, I was sitting in front of the sensor and it didn't turn on again because I was making exaggerated movements in front of it. Am I missing something from this setup?
