    Im looking for suggestions on best practices to keep bus traffic to a minimum for the obvious reasons that unwarranted traffic makes for difficult trouble shooting down the road.
    At the moment all exterior/outdoor lighting is on an enable/disable from a single outdoor lux sensor so that its a uniform time/lux that everything comes on/off, this works fine.
    I have now found that all outdoor pir sensors are still transmitting traffic during the day even when these lights are disabled, would it be better practice to put all exterior pir sensors onto the enable/disable group instead of the lighting circuits???
    What are the best practices to follow to keep bus traffic to a minimum???
    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

    What are they sending? There should be no traffic if they are programmed to only trigger at night. Cbus sensor are specifically designed to minimize cbus traffic.

    If you are concerned about traffic, run the Cbus diagnostic utility and get it to do a traffic analysis. It will tell you if you have any potential problems. A properly programmed Cbus system can be huge without excess traffic ever being an issue.
