I’ve got a motion sensor on my porch right at the stairs. There’s a straight shot from the stairs to my front door. It’s probably 15’ from the stairs to the door. I’ve got the sensor angled across the pathway so that if anyone walks to my front door, a motion tagged event will be generated and the front porch Wyze bulb will light up.
I put some scotch tape over the eye (saw it somewhere on the forum here) but it constantly shows motion all day long even though no human/ pet walks across the eye. The beam mostly faces a wall but is angled so anyone coming out the front door should get picked up.
Other than a Fall wreath my wife has hanging on the front door, there is nothing else that could move (all the plants are behind the sensor). The wall the beam is mostly hitting is getting sunlight all afternoon. Is that throwing off the PIR internals?
I’m scratching my head wondering whats setting this thing off. Any ideas? What can I do to de sensitize that motion sensor?
