There may be better alternatives to accomplish my earlier feature request. For example, instead of having schedules for when devices are linked, you could just allow a schedule for turning the motion detectors completely on/off on the smart light products. Right now, you can turn the detectors fully on/off but it is manual. You are able to silence motion notifications based on a schedule. But, the motion detections are still filling up the event log for the smart lights and also triggering linked cameras to record video. If you can have a schedule for fully turning the motion detectors on/off, then you could avoid filling up the event log and triggering linked cameras if there are time periods during the day when you expect to have numerous false motion events on the path lights. I still get 50+ false events in the day due to sunlight and shade patterns moving. I assume that this issue is more likely to happen with the pathlights since the motion sensors are so close to the ground. At night, when I need the motion detection from the pathlights, it works perfectly with no false events.

Please add the ability to link devices for only certain time periods of the day. I would like to link the motion detectors for all of my path lights to all of my video cameras at night time but not link them in the daytime. In the daytime, the path lights have too many false motion detection events due to moving shadows, direct sunlight, etc. And, in the daytime, the wired cameras have really strong motion detection by themselves. Whereas at night time, the wired cameras seem to have much weaker motion detection and benefit from being linked to motion detectors on nearby path lights. At night, the path lights seem to have reasonably accurate motion detection and trigger nearby cameras appropriately. Right now, if I link my path lights to my video doorbell pro, I get 50 false motion detections in the daytime and then 50 random videos cluttering my history log. I can turn off notifications, but it still clutters the history log and drowns out more significant events in the history log. If I do not link the pathlights to the video doorbell at all, then the doorbell camera can sense all motion sufficiently in the day and only triggers for meaningful events. However, at night time, people have to get within a few feet of the doorbell for it to trigger. Whereas, at night, if I link the path lights to the doorbell, then the camera starts recording when people are still 15 feet away from the front door.
