I’m using the RTCGQ13LM in my kitchen, it has been great, though it is enormous, so unless you can mount it in-ceiling it does stand out. If you stand absolutely still it will stop updating just like any other PIR, but with the short timeout for checking for motion again it works really well in most scenarios (in my kitchen).
Just arrived my tuya device.
Quite fast motion response, but the only motion detect attribute it exposes is “presence”. Quite fast to trigger but extremly long cooldown (>30 secs).
Is it a matter of z2m implementation or is the model? If I’m not in wrong the aqara model has also zones and directions or something like that.
EDIT1: to short the cooldown you must set fading time =0. Neverthless at a distance of about 4.5 m and sensitivity=max the sensor goes presence=false if I’ mjust sitting. It is not what I expected
EDIT2: the sensor is extremely sensitive to the position. After lots of tests it is workig overall quite well. Do as many trials as possible. The instructions does’nt help a lot: no mw frequency nor view angle.
EDIT3: it is orribly chatting: mqttexplorer receives > 1 msg per second. I was forced to restrict the “z2m in” node only to receive the exposed presence attribute and only when value changes. Is it a z2m problem or is a device problem?
In the node config I restricted the enabled attributes to presence only+“only if changed” option. That filtered a lot. But looking at mqttexplorer, that device is pulsing twice per second. The extra work of receive/filter such a huge amount of messages still is in charge to z2m/Nr I think.
What if I use many of them ?
It Is a Tuya device. If i understood well such devices have non standard cluster layout
I found this reference :
Reading the reference, the motion cluster should be IAS zone (0x0500), but I could’nt find it in z2m.
More over, I’m not sure what value I should assign to the minimum change attribute.
I’m worrying about changing report mintime values too, as I would’nt like to slowdown the device motion responsiveness .
This is a matter requiring a super @markus advice…
