    Default Room cleared by house object

    In some of our rooms we have chosen not to have lights controlled automatic. So the setting is "Manual control only". In those rooms I have tried using the "on delayed unoccupied trigger" to ensure the lights does not stay on after the room is unoccupied.

    It turns out however that the lights tend to go off quite randomly as it appeared and after some investigation i found that it was "Room NN cleared by house object" that caused the lights to be turned off even though it was still occupied. Ive been trying to figure out how I could prevent this "house object" from clearing the room, but I dont seem to be able to find that setting.

    Any ideas where I can find it or should I solve this quite differently?
    Kind Regards
    Glenn

    have vague recollections of having seen House object clearing before, can't recall details ...

    however, in situations where we've wanted what you seem to be wanting, in our case for auxiliary lighting devices (eg: shaving mirror light), we've defined the Relays as On/Off Load, type Lamp ... and connected their Turn Off connection to Room - On Unoccupied ... not had a problem, and imagine Delayed Unoccupied would work just as well ...

    Thanks Viv, that solved it. However the maximum value I can set seems to be 10. I have ap 35 rooms and theoretically they could all be occupied the same time. Any way of increasing the no above 10?
