I am using an AEOTEC hub and added a TriSensor.
It was working great yesterday, My biggest application for the tool is Motion and it was great.
Today, it is no longer working, despite the temperature, battery and luminosity are reporting. The motion alert never hits. The Motion Alarm is never set on (hence my rule never fires). It is almost like the ‘read’ of the data is now failing
The log shows:

I solved the problem by removing the sensor from the controller, disabling the device, then re-added it as a new device. All is fine now. These are the settings I am currently using:
I made very few changes (setting lifeline), these are the defaults when I discovered and re-added the device.
I do not know how to associated these with the UI so I am unsure of what had gone sideways or how. I really try not to make changes without 1)documenting the change; 2) immediately testing; 3) rollback if any problem. To the best of my recollection, I had made no changes before it quit working.
While I have a working solution in place now, I would like to understand what happened. Since this is part of home security, understanding what went sideways would give me confidence before travelling.
