  • Getting HS-FLS100 to work with BLRadar

    My use case is as follows:
    • Trying emulate the old X10 Hawkeye functionality.
    • Turned the relay completely off.
    • Would like to have motion "off" signal sent after 2 minutes of inactivity, BUT any motion within that 2 minutes should reset the timer. (standard BLRadar functionality)
    • Need to integrate with BLRadar plugin.
    Essentially I want to use it as a simple wired motion sensor. When it detects motion I want a BLRadar sensor to stay "Motion Detected" until 2 minutes after a "No Motion" or the last "Motion Detected" signal was sent. In BLRadar my sensors are assigned to "Activity Zones" which in turn will control lights assigned to that zone.

    • HS3 Pro Edition (Windows)
    • Zwave plugin v3.0.1.243
    • BLRadar plugin v2.0.140.0
    • Plug-Ins Enabled: BLBackup:,Z-Wave:,BLEditor:,BLRadar:,BLRF:,BLShutdown:,BLStat:,X10:,weat herXML:

    The problems I am having is I cant get the device/sensor to work in BLRadar.
    Before adding to BLRadar this device works, and is what I want to use as the trigger

    But when I add that device as sensor to BLRadar the device stops changing status. I turned the relay on so I can hear it click, and while the relay is clicking and the load control is working, the "Home Security" device does not update once it is added to BLRadar.

    Note in pic above that the switch binary is ON which proves the sensor detected motion, but the Security device stops updating status once under BLRadar control. None of the other devices created show up in the BLRadar dropdown box for me to add, the "Q111 Home Security" is the only one that is allowed to be added.

    The sensor is configured like this in BLRadar:

    I see this after ZWave inclusion

    My parameters are set as follows:
    (note, I turned Load Control to 255 for testing as I can then hear the relay click when motion is detected by the sensor, ultimately I want to turn that relay off by setting the Load Control to 0)

    Just as a follow up. I finally got this to work by creating a virtual device. I linked the FLS100 Sensor device to the virtual device, and added the virtual device to BLRadar.

      Sorry I missed this post - glad you got it working
