    Our use of the terms Cortex and Reflex is probably not far off the analogy mark. There is a huge difference. Switching a light on by pressing a button isn't simply a matter of the button sending a...

    Probably getting into the realms of using your own coding for greater flexibility with access to the signals via the API.

    There is an existing behaviour for the light object (At lighting up time and dark to turn on, lighting off time to turn off). Or would this not cover the full requirement?

    Non native objects such as X10, Rako and HomeEasy are classified under 'Other automation network objects'. So they are specific objects but which attempt as much as possible to look like an IDRATEK...

    Apologies for the confusion. It has probably stemmed from early units not having this capability. Will have to do a datasheet update. In fact all modules with digital inputs, except for the SLD, QLD...

    It would seem that the problem was resolved by supplying the PIR from IDRANet power, but that some of the earlier observations have yet to be explained. For example the issue of the sense voltage...

    Hmm, this sounds like the PIR output is not isolated. In other words that the 0V from the digital input is traversing into the 0V for the PIR electronics. Sounds a bit odd not to isolate the output...

    I think the source of the problem is evident from your voltage measurements. The Active level is ok, but the Inactive level should be somewhere close to 0V. 1.2v is close to the threshold point of...

    I don't think it would be relay contact bounce. There is filtering on digital inputs so it would have to be a pretty bad relay for that to happen - not something we have commonly seen.
