    I think you need to try the steps I will describe below. But one word of advise here, if you add battery devices to deCONZ, add them while you are on the spot where you want to use them. Many battery driven devices, especially Aqara devices, choose a reachable router and tend to not change easily to another router. IKEA devices do not really have an issue, but Aqara and Tuya devices are unreachable if the router cannot be reached by them.

    Try these steps:
    1. go to the Bridge Maintenance page and press the button scan for devices for the bridge you are using
    2. Then reset the motion sensor (on the spot where the device will be used!)
    3. Let deCONZ get the information it needs - eventually check the blinking dot on the deCONZ device to confirm data is read
    4. You can also check the lines in the deCONZ map, although not all battery devices might show a connection to see if things change
    Also if the Raspbee is near another device that can cause interference (zwave sender, WIFI router, microwave) consider to move it farther away from those devices?

    I hope this will help things working?

      Hi Wim,
      I performed the above steps that you outlined, the motion feature has updated the time when I reset the device but it hasn't updated since. You can see from the below map of devices that it seems to have recognized its new neighbor correctly and the blue dot is blinking for the device in deCONZ. But the device hasn't updated since I pressed the reset button.

          It's a Linkind PIR. I've linked it HERE.

            Not sure but it could be that deCONZ did not correctly configure reporting on the device. There are few ways to test more here. The easiest one is restarting the plugin, I expect I have caught them all, but there have been times where the plugin would not start updating new devices before the plugin was restarted.

            Next option, if it did not work, make sure to trigger the motion sensor. Then check the properties op the device in HS, the JowiHue tab. This is holding JSON information. Inside the information you will find time attributes. I expect the most important attribute will be "lasttimeseen". Is it at or around the time you triggered the motion sensor? Does it change after some time? Maybe post a copy of the JSON as I do not know the model here. Maybe it holds something I am missing.
            Is the "presence" attribute true or false?

            Based on this we can check for the next step

              Hi Wim,

              I have been trying a few things to get this device to work. Something that I tried that seemed to work at first was to disable the plugin then reboot DeConz, when DeConz came back up I would enable the plugin. I all of a sudden started seeing that the motion feature would switch between motion/no motion a couple of times. However, after I unplugged a Zigbee outlet and plugged it in a couple of feet away, it stopped triggering. Since then I have only seen the battery feature for the device update regularly. Repeating the steps I just mentioned above does not seem to make a difference.

              I have two more zigbee outlets (same brand as two others that have worked without issue) being delivered today in hopes that maybe it has to do with my mesh network...I don't think so as I have a zigbee temp/humidity sensor in our refrigerator that is the furthest away from any zigbee device/hub and it is working perfectly.

              I have gone through your Next Option steps above, I waved my hand past the device at 3:13PM local time and then took a screenshot of the JowiHue tab for the device. (See below)

                The lastseen value looks like it has updated, but it is hard to guess if the motion sensor would reset itself. It would be good to check the JSON again after the motion sensor has seen no motion for some time (5 or 10 minutes) so we can see if the presence attribute goes to false again... because if this happens and the device in HS sticks to motion, it would proof that the plugin actually misses an update for this device?

                Could you check on that? I would be surprised, but the fact that the lastseen attribute is updating suggests the presence should be updated as well.

                Thanks,

                Wim

                  I know this is an OLD thread but I was wondering if anyone was able to get the Linkind motion sensor (link) working with HomeSeer..

                  I can get homeSeer to see the device via Zigbee and I can add to an event.

                  I am a newbie to this so there is a possibility I might have configured something wrong.

                  Any help is greatly appreciated

                  I am running HS4 on a Windows 10 machine

                    Which plugin are you using to communicate with your Zigbee devices?

                    Are you using the Homeseer4 Zigbee plugin? If so, then you need to post in that forum.

                    Or are you using the JowiHue plugin to communicate with your Zigbee devices?

                        MNB,
                        The JowiHue plugin also has full support of deCONZ (ConBee2/RaspBee2) gateway, which supports a number of nodes around 200 devices if needed.
                        In my opinion the deCONZ gateway is one of the best it its game. Checkout https://www.phoscon.de/en/conbee2 and the user guide of the JowiHue plugin. Also https://forums.homeseer.com/forum/hs...o-s-on-jowihue holds some extra information on deCONZ.
