Movement Detector is used for operating lighting based on user movement.

About

Movement Detector is used for lighting control and movement monitoring with movement detectors. The task can operate lights with multiple movement sensors depending on the brightness conditions.

Picture 1: Movement detector settings

Enabled setting enables/disables the operation of the task. The Delay time in seconds can be used to turn the light OFF after the last movement detected.

Output Value must be linked to the device being controlled by the movement (e.g. the controlled lamp). Blocked By Output can be used to block the operation of the movement detector, when the Output Value is not changed by movement detector (e.g. changed by KNX push button, which turns the lamp ON and OFF). When movement detector is blocked it will not start the delay timeout and the Output Value will never turn off. Alternatively Blocking Value linked to custom object can be used to block the operation of the movement detector.

The movement detector can also be operated by brightness. Detector can operate only in low brightness condition. A Night Value must be linked to the boolean object representing the current low light condition (e.g. ON/OFF dusk sensor). Alternatively the analog brightness Brightness Value with Brightness Threshold can be used if Uses Brightness is set to true.

Multiple Input Values (i.e. multiple sensors) can be used to trigger the movement detector.

UI controls can be created for Enabled, Blocked and Delay values. User can enable, block or set the delay from the user interface.

Examples

Example 1: Control KNX lights with DSC alarm sensors

  1. Set Output Value to the light you want to control.
  2. Set Delay in seconds.
  3. Add DSC alarm sensors under Input Values.
  4. Make UI controls for setting the Enabled, Blocked and Delay values.

Example 2: Control lights at night

  1. Set Output Value to the light you want to control.
  2. Set Delay in seconds.
  3. Set Night Value value (e.g. Night value from the Sunrise Sunset task or if brightness sensor is available set Use Brightness Value to true and use analog Brightness Value with Brightness Threshold).
  4. Make UI controls for setting the Enabled, Blocked and Delay values.
