[DeConz] Philips Hue Outdoor Sensor not discovered as presence sensor

  • Platform information:
    • Hardware: RPII, ConBeeII (with up-to-date firmware)
    • OS: OpenHabian
    • openHAB version: 2.5.8.SNAPSHOT
    • Homegear 0.8 as Homematic-Hub
  • My Philips Hue Outdoor Motion Sensor is only discovered as daylight sensor in OpenHab and not as presence sensor.
  • The lightsensor is working: deconz:lightsensor:2ad2164b:Outdoor_Light' changed from UNKNOWN to ONLINE so there is data communication.
  • On a Win10 machine the HUE outdoor sensor can be sucessfully registered as presence sensor in deCONZ with the same ConBeeII-Stick attached - so it’s not a hardware problem.
  • What is going wrong? How can I debug this?
  • Do I have to add the HUE binding too…even if I don’t have a HUE bridge nor lights?

We need the REST API response to see how the sensor is reported. http://<phoscon-address>/api/<api-key/sensors

Hey Jan,

thank you for the immediate response. Your hint brought me on the right track:

Because there was a “Daylight (Philips)” showing up in OpenHab, I thought I already paired the device in Phoscon. But this probably only was the Dummy sensor.
After pairing in Phoscon all features of the outdoor sensor showed up in OpenHab.

Thanks again,
