I have a smart lighting motion sensor linked to my doorbell 2 so that when the smart lighting motion sensor detects motion the doorbell records video.
The smart lighting motion sensor will detect motion several seconds before a visitor presses the doorbell button.
Thats when the unexpected doorbell behavior occurs. The “ring event” does not show up in the phone app history. The ring event does not not cause an app notification on the phone. However, I can hear a chime sound that might be coming from the doorbell or one of the chimes in the house, not sure which. But all of the chimes in the house do not make a sound.
The linked motion event does show up in the history as expected.
In the case where the smart lighting motion sensor does not detect motion and the doorbell button is pushed. Everything works as expected. The app notification happens, the ring event is listed in history, and all of the chimes in the house make a sound.
My question is should the linked motion event prevent the ring event from happening?
