Multiple motion sensor in same room and IFTTT

Hello everyone

I have two motion sensors in my kitchen. I added a second because while I’m doing dishes the single motion sensor would timeout / clear, and turn the lights off. When one of the two detects motion before the other the lights go out too soon from the first sensor clearing. I hope that makes sense lol. Initially I named them different names, hoping that if one caught motion it would override the other one and extend the duration that the lights stayed on. This didn’t seem to work so then I tried naming them both the same name. Even though they share a name they show up as two separate device in IFTTT.

I am not using wyze bulbs

Can anyone think of a way I can have one override the first trigger motion detection. For example if motion sensor 1 is triggered before sensor 2 then the lights timer will start again.

I think I got it figured out.
After grouping the two motion sensor together in the Wyze app it seems to be doing exactly what I wanted.

Have this same issue in the bathroom. One sensor placed in a way to catch the shower and the toilet will also get you walking by in the hall so I have to use two. Glad to know you can group them, thanks!

So how did you get it to work exactly? I’m assuming you have a smart light switch. I’m trying to do the same thing but in the bathroom. I have a sensor when I walk in and also a sensor in the shower to turn on exhaust when taking a shower. But when the walk in sensor becomes clear, it turns out the lights while I’m in the shower. I only want the exhaust to turn on when I’m in the shower and keep the lights on at the same time. This first sensor controls the lights and the second Controls the lights and exhaust fan. Hopefully it makes sense. What do you have controlling your lights, Alexa? That is what I have.
