Hue Motion Sensors
« on: August 22, 2023, 01:45:59 pm »
I have 4 Hue outdoor motion sensors. They have all be triggering an Alexa routine in which Alexa speaks the location of the motion. Been working fine for months. All of a sudden, none of the 4 works.

They sense motion (per the Hue app).
They will turn on the lights assigned to them.
Batteries are fine.
I've turned Hue skill on/off in Alexa.
Uninstalled/reinstalled Alexa
Uninstalled/reinstalled Hue

Any suggestions? Thank you!

The Hue Motion Sensors got a big update a week ago and started doing weird stuff... I went in to each sensor and set them all up to meet my previous requirements.
They added scheduling and actions adjustments up to 10 scenarios or some such thing. Go into settings>Accessories, and you will find the little indicator lit up on each motion sensor. You will likely have to do some experimentation to get the results you had before, anything from light dimming and daylight sensitivity and more... and you have to set time ranges and behavior, and then sensitivity to ambient lighting... it's a little annoying, but it actually does give more control for folks using them.
