Context. I live in a private place, where my house is not visible, unless you drive through a private street. I wanted the outdoor lights to turn as quickly as a car approaches the house.
Problem #1: I tried to turn them on through the ring app when a motion detector is activated and through an alexa routine. I have gotten inconsistent results, where sometimes the ring linked feature is faster and sometimes the alexa routine is faster. Which one is recommended to use?
Problem #2: The second challenge, I ask the lights to turn off when no motion is detected for 30 minutes through an alexa routine. The issue is when I use the ring configuration to turn the lights through the linked devices when a motion occurs (and not an alexa routine), the lights turn off in 10 minutes, which is a pain, as a car passed through the motion detector, but then people are in front of the garage and the lights turn off when we are unloading the car for example.
