    Motion events based on multiple sensors

    How can I use AK smart device to accomplish this: https://forums.homeseer.com/forum/ho...ltiple-sensors

    I am watching the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_c...ture=emb_title but when I go to device list, add device to add the "motion zone" for my 2nd floor it comes up as on/off How do I create a motion zone device that is actually motion?

    The author has got an extensive documentation of how to here : https://forums.homeseer.com/forum/ultilities-plug-ins/utilities-discussion/ak-smart-device-alexbk66/1285058-introducing-ak-smart-device-plugin-for-homeseer
    You have to read and understand as with everything technical many of us especially women avoid reading manuals (this is my prerogative after observation for many years )
    So unless your question is about "variables" and all other things "scripts" just assume that no one will give you a straight answer to an easy question (I guess for not wanting to be liable for who set your house on fire! )

    Now that said, here is the HomeSeer handbook which you will be scolded by the wife for printing off because it's 408 pages : https://homeseer.com/support/homeseer/HS3/HS3Help.pdf

    And an extensive list of HomeSeer videos : https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=HomeSeer+

      I'm not sure what exactly is your question?

      You can add many On/Off devices to the group, but the group itself (virtual device) can have Motion/No motion status.

      If you mean just renaming "ON" status to "Motion":

        When I go to AK Smart Device tab, I see the virtual device as having on/off, not motion/no motion. How do I fix this?

          If you renamed the sates on the Status Graphics tab - then the "Refresh" button on the first screenshot should update the state names. Sometimes it doesn't - then you will need to restart the plugin. I'm trying to find why it's not working sometimes.

          Hope it helps.
