    Insteon Motion Sensor Events

    I'm trying to use the Insteon Motion Sensor to turn on 2 sets of lights. My event does successfully turn the lights on but they are turned off a minute later then the motion sensor transmits an "off" status. See my event, it does not capture the "off" trigger so I don't understand why the lights go off. In addition the event triggers a plugin error, see the log. Need some help. Thanks.

    It sounds like you have the motion sensor and light switches linked directly together. That could explain the lights turning off after the 1 minute no motion time out

      I'm also showing a message on the Insteon PlugIn Interface for unregistered links for 2 devices which do appear an are controlled on the device page. These 2 lamps are turned on/off by the motion sensor trigger so maybe this message is related. I've attached screen shots.

        I think link number 8 is turning your lights off. The unregistered device is another device that hasn't been added to HomeSeer yet. I think you can delete links 8 and 5

          Appears we have this resolved. Your assumption was correct, I had linked the lights directly to the motion sensor so my event was actually being ignored. I reset the lights and the motion sensor to remove all the links and then reprogrammed back to the plug-in. Not when motion is sensed the lights will turn on if they are off and if the light value of the sensor is 50% or less. No action is taken when the sensor sends the Off command. The lights will remain on until turned off manually. Thanks for the help you can close this.

            I may have spoke too soon. The events are working fine but an error page is being generated which I've attached. Please advise what the error is. Thanks.

                I'm posting what I believe you requested. I don't find an Insteon Plugin Device in my device list and I'm unclear what you mean by MS switch. Thanks.

                  why do you include the group controller status as a condition?

                  MS = motion sensor

                    I'm using the Group Controller condition so the lights will only be turned on by the MS if they are off. The Group Controller turns on/off 2 lights in the Den. Should I just use the lights themselves and not the Group Controller? The MS is not directly linked to anything. The Event works as intended except for the error message it continues to generate.

                      enable detailed logging on the plugin settings page, retest your event

                      - Post the HS Log that shows the problem: Goto to the hs tools/log menu, Export the log of the transactions, download it and attach it to your post

                      and is this the error you are referring to?

                        I've attached the current Tools/Log. Yest the error is essentially the one you've quoted. Thanks.

                          i think i see the problem, its not related to the motion sensor.

                          1. did you enable x10 on the Settings page?

                          2, did you add any X10 devices to the plugin?

                          3. from the hs devices page, find the 'insteon plugin' device, then go to the MNS Insteon tab, and copy and paste the content here

                            Answering your questions: 1. No X10 not enabled on the Insteon Setting page. 2. No - No X10 devices added to the plugin. I've copied the text below of the MNS Insteon Tab:
