  • Can this sensor be used to turn on light on door close

    Hi.
    I want to use the hidden door sensor to turn on a light when the door is closed.
    Normally it works with the door opening but I want to use it in reverse.

    It's easy if you have an ISY. Create a program like this:
    Code:
    If
                 Control 'Your sensor' is switched Off
    Then
                 Set 'Your light' On
    Else
          - No Actions -
    I don't know of any other way. Maybe someone else can help.

      Thank you TommyB. Unfortunately I only have the hub.
      I should have mentioned that. I apologize.
      I think the isy would probably be a good option for me.
      I was just trying to keep it simple with the hub.
      Thanks again.

        Just to confirm I tried linking this different ways. It seems like it was only intended to turn On when open and Off when closed. When I linked the sensor in the open position and the light in the off position I could get the light to go off but not back on again.

        I agree with TommyB. You will need a controller that can send independent commands to the two devices as the Hub/scenes will not work here.

          Hi SeanM. I also tried different linking to no avail. I even called support and they seemed to think it would work but I got the feeling he was unsure of what to do.
          Anyway thanks for the response.
