Using the camera as a motion sensor, but it is triggered by the lights going out

Cupertino, October 26, 2020

I have this problem where I use the motion sensor of a camera to start an automation to turn on the lights in a certain room and then turn off after a minute. The problem is that when the lights go out, the camera's motion sensor sees this as a motion and turns on the lights again and then the automation loops. Do you have any idea how to fix the problem without getting a dedicated motion sensor?
Thank you, much appreciated !!
Please note that I have no way to run the homebridge ATM. I don't want to spend on a raspberry yet.
