Problems with rule based on Motion

TorM shared this question 3 years ago
Need Answer


I am trying to make a rule that makes a snapshot from my webcam and sends me an e-mail, if there is motion in my house when I am not at home. But the rule does not seem to trigger properly. I see that there is motion, in the motion sensor, but this rule only triggers occasionally. Any idea what I am doing wrong? (See rule in attachment)

try using a when, motion sensor, any. In the first part, then an If, Motion sensor, motion,

Have you checked the snapshot camera settings/path? Does it take a snapshot within Zipato?



after playing around with it, I discovered that this Motion Sensor offers more choises. When selecting SENSOR.STATE.TRUE instead of "Motion" it works. See screenshot.
