I can’t get my motion detector timeout to set. When it was first added it had a timeout of 3 minutes and worked fine. I wanted to lengthen the timeout to 10 minutes, so from inside of habmin I changed the timeout value and it looked like it took. I’m assuming when you change a value there it is automatically written to the device. There isn’t a save/apply button anywhere.
Anyhow, after making the change I noticed the light I’m testing with the sensor started going out after 1 minute. Went back and looked and the 10 had changed to 0, so I reentered 10 and hit enter. And after some time (hrs/days??) again it reset to 0.
This morning I’ve tried changing it back to 3 and when tripped the light came on and stayed on for a minute, even though the value is still showing 3. And after the motion event the value field is now yellow. I’m sure it will reset to 0 again at some point.
Anybody know what I’m doing wrong?
This is what habmin showed before the motion detector was tripped:
This is what it shows after being tripped:
And as I said above the actual timeout was 1 minute, not 3:

Forgot to add this part…
I did run across this comment Getting ZWN-BPC PIR motion sensor to work with openHAB and if I force the device to wake up and get it’s parameters updated. It immediately goes from yellow to white and is reset to 0.
