    Default Lights not staying on ...

    wondered if it's just us, but ...

    we've noticed that Lights in some Rooms go off a short while after we've gone into the Room - as if Cortex hasn't noticed that we have not only opened the Door but have also gone into the Room ...

    started happening a month or two ago, and definitely used to be OK in those Rooms ...

    maybe we've changed our behaviour, maybe we've changed our Database in some way - but we don't think so / can't think how !

    Anybody else noticed this, by any chance ... ?

    As a starting point might be an idea to check the textual history for the lights in question. These will normally have a cause appended to each state change.

    History shows :

    13:12:26 BJ Lights, ON, Override= None, Unoccupied, Room Dark, Out Dark, [opened door, entered room, closed door, started doing something]
    13:15:59 BJ Lights, OFF, Override= None, Unoccupied, Room Dark, Out Dark,
    13:16:02 BJ Lights, ON, Override= None, Unoccupied, Room Dark, Out Dark, [waved at sensor]
    13:16:13 BJ Lights, OFF, Override= Temp Off, Occupied, Room Dark, Out Dark, [used button to adjust switch-dimmable brightness]
    13:16:17 BJ Lights, ON, Override= None, Occupied, Room Dark, Out Dark, [continued]
    13:17:36 BJ Lights, OFF, Override= Temp On+P, Unoccupied, Room Dark, Out Dark, [again]
    13:17:43 BJ Lights, ON, Override= Temp On+P, Unoccupied, Room Dark, Out Dark, [continued]
    13:19:28 BJ Lights, OFF, Override= Temp On+P, Unoccupied, Room Dark, Out Dark, [left room, switching manually because had been adjusting them]

    NB; on job list is to add some logic to be sure adjusting switch-dimmable brightness doesn't take the Mode out of None ...

    Room's connections look OK (motion sensors, doors, etc)
