    It looks like the motion was triggered but then there wasn't a no motion detected action.

      Here is how I would structure the Event. This will turn the lights off if motion has ceased for 2 minutes, the TV is Off and if either of the lights is anything other than Off. It should account for any possibility.

        Is the detector still showing Motion? If so, it has quit reporting or something else is wrong. Your original Event should have run as soon as the detector went to "No Event" and the Event above would do the same. Unfortunately if the sensor fails to go back to No Event, neither version of the Off Event would work. I still think the Event I posted above will give more consistent results, as long as the sensor is reporting reliably.

          Yes, it seems to be working ok yesterday and today and prior. Very strange. Is there something in the system that would cause a hiccup?

            Did you guys figure this one out? I think it's a function of event logic, which I'm happy to give some best-practice guidance on ... at least the best-practice I have developed for myself after using HS for about 12 years :-)
