Motion Sensor Bug - how to solve

Hi there,

I use node red at my home assistant.
This is my current flow:

I have the problem, that the sensor not always detect motion.
Or sometimes the light turns on and 5 sec later it turns off.

The motion sensor is a philips hue motion sensor and the light is controlled by a shelly dimmer 2.

Can anybody find the bug in my flow?

Regards
Timo

Nobody any idea, what could be the problem with the detection?
happy x-mas :slight_smile:

Looking at your flow i see it is a lot of HA nodes. Most here don't use HA so it will be hard to debug. If I was you I would post the question on the HA forum they have a node-red section.
