Motion Sensor - How to add to Live?

Post by mechanimal82 » Thu Jan 18, 2018 11:08 am

Hi all, hoping for a little help as I'm still new to Tellstick.

I have the Nexa MDT-507 Outdoor motion sensor and am running a Tellstick NET on the just released beta firmware. Can anyone help me add this? I assume as it's not being detected in the sensor section this needs to be added as a device, but how can I record triggered events?

What I'm looking for is a way for a detection to send an alert to my phone (probably via the Android RemoteStick application coupled with Tasker to make the alert appear in my notification bar).

Anyone got any ideas of a) how to add the motion sensor to Live, and b) how to trigger some form of alert?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Event triggered actions in Live is not (yet) implemented What is possible right now, is live status update in Live of motion sensors/transmitter.
Add a new self learning device, then start the scan function and trigger the motion sensor. You should then see the units house code showing up on the screen, save the unit.

You can now control a receiver from Live and from the motion sensor, and have a live update of the receiver status.

More info about new functions etc can be found here: http://developer.telldus.com/blog

I've tested the feature with a KlikAanKlickUit magnet selflearning switch. The PRoblem with the divice is, that the housecode "on" is not the same as the housecode "off". The "on code" i.e. is 16876710 and the housecode "off" is 9443402. So, I have two new devices.

Perhaps you should try the latest beta FW for the Net?

Fix bug where some motion detectors/magnetic switches gets different house/unit code for on and off - If you can't scan one of those devices, please test this firmware

Great.

I see the magnetic switch in Live. But what can I do with the magnetic switch. Can I control via Live lamps and other devices?

Event triggering from Live is not yet implemented. The magnetic switch has to be used in the "normal way", the receiver status will then be automatically updated in Live.

Hey you can do one thing just try to add a new self learning device, then start the scan function and trigger the motion sensor once you done with it, you'll see the code up on the screen, save that unit. This would definitely help you :) Just try it!!
