Paired sensors will appear on the Sensors page in the More tab. Presence sensors, Daylight sensors, and combined Presence/Daylight sensors will be shown.
In order to configure a presence sensor, the Use Control Hierarchy option must first be enabled (see Network setup/Control options). For each sensor there are different configuration options which can be chosen:
• Resume automation (group)
• Resume automation
Presence can activate up to two mutually exclusive scenes when the sensor is triggered.
Presence/Absence activates up to two mutually exclusive scenes when the sensor is triggered, and then activates up to two mutually exclusive scenes when absence has been detected (i.e., when there is no movement and the linger time has expired – see below). You may also wish to set a timeout for the Absence scene.
- Note: Presence and Absence scene(s) must contain the same luminaire(s). An absence scene cannot control different luminaires than those configured in the presence scene(s).
Absence Removes manual control from selected scene(s) when presence is no longer detected and the linger time has expired (see below). e.g. The scene(s) are activated manually (e.g. by a switch) but automatically deactivated.
Linger time Is the delay between presence no longer being detected and the controlled scene(s) expiring.
Fade time Is the time it takes the scene(s) to dim to off (0%) or to the Absence scene once presence is no longer detected and the linger time has expired.
Absence timeout defines how long the Absence scene will remain active. By default, it is Disabled (i.e., The absence scene will not turn off).
Removes manual control Allows any previous manual control of a scene to be removed once presence is no longer detected and the linger time has also passed.
The two Resume automation options can be used to remove manual control from a specific group of luminaires or from all luminaires in your network.
A presence sensor will display a ‘walking person’ icon in the top right of the main sensor icon image when presence is detected.
Note: mains-switching PIR sensors can also be used with the CBU-ASD or CBU-TED to act as a Casambi-enabled sensor. The profile of the CBU device may first need to be changed to enable this (See Changing a device profile in the Appendix).
Up to 30 sensors (for Evolution networks), or 10 sensors (for Classic networks) can be configured to control the same luminaire.
