Neo Coolcam PIR sensor not generating motion sensor detections


(Pieter Tjebbes) #21

Sensitivity is set at 12 and PIR motion detection in enabled; should be OK. However - still nothing appearing in logfile other than entry i just sent you


(Pieter Tjebbes) #22

Ha - Node 4 just appeared again in logfile - and that is the one we need according to paper UI. Lot of entries after I pushed activitation button and made some motions. No clue what to conclude from log at first sight.

Can you make any sense of this? @chris


(Chris Jackson) #23

This is the configuration of the device, which in general looks fine. The PIR is enabled, and the sensitivity is set to the default value. Group 1 association also looks fine.

So, it must work :wink:


(Pieter Tjebbes) #24

How can i share configuration of rule using the PIR motion sensor with you - the rule still says that is in idle mode all the time, according to Paper UI?


(Chris Jackson) #25

At the moment, we still don’t see any notifications in the log - until we actually see the PIR notifications in the ZWave log, the rule won’t do anything so I don’t think that’s where we need to focus.


(Pieter Tjebbes) #26

Ah; what can i do next make notifications appear?


(Chris Jackson) #27

Well, that’s the real question, but unfortunately, I’ve run out of suggestions.

It should work if -:

  1. The PIR is enabled
  2. The associations are set
  3. The sensitivity level is ok

All of these look fine, and the device is reporting temperature, so it is correctly configured to report.


(Pieter Tjebbes) #28

so reinstallation openhab2 and starting with complete clean config file would not help either? better to get another motion PIR and try that one out?


(Pieter Tjebbes) #29

Better to try it out with another motion sensor?


(Chris Jackson) #30

No - I don’t believe that it would help. As far as I can see, everything appears to be configured ok, and the device is reporting - it’s just not reporting PIR.

I thought I’d seen messages in the past about these sensors having problems, but I can’t find anything now.

Maybe, but this sensor should also work. Your device might just have a fault of course…


(Pieter Tjebbes) #31

Logviewer is also seeing a node 8 which looks like a pir sensor also. Could it be that that is creating the blockade - two nodes configured for one and the same sensor?


(Pieter Tjebbes) #32

I can send you the logfiles so you can take a look at them and see what else might be wrong?


(Chris Jackson) #33

Please feel free to provide the log and I’ll have a quick look, but I can’t really see how the node can be reporting via two different node Ids…


(Pieter) #34

I have the same problems with this Neo CoolCam PIR Device.
Sometimes it helps when you wake it up several (10) times with the button inside.


(Pieter Tjebbes) #35

Pjotr, thanks for reply. What does an entry in log look like when:
a. you use wakeup button
b. when sensor registers motion and passes it on to OH2?


(Pieter Tjebbes) #36

And Pjotr - any suggestion for a good motion sensor where I will have more luck instead of the NEO CoolCam?

(Pieter) #39

When the sensor registers a motion, it behaves like a switch

2019-02-19 09:44:48.332 [vent.ItemStateChangedEvent] - GF_Kitchen_Motion changed from OFF to ON

When you push the button, the Thing receives an update. You will receive this in your logfile:

2019-02-19 09:54:59.448 [me.event.ThingUpdatedEvent] - Thing ‘zwave:device:d9e17137:node14’ has been updated.

It helps sometimes to do this 10 times within 2 or 3 minutes. But after some time of inactivity, I have to repeat this. (about once a month)

It is not a very stable device. In the past I obtained a different Z-Wave PIR sensor from AliExpress, but it’s unfortunately sold out.
