    I have a SENPIRIB (flush mount PIR) mounted in a hallway that generally stays quite dark and therefore when using the night move function will activate during the day quite often.

    I would like to use the Light Level from another SENPIRIB to enable this PIR (which has better contrast of light levels) so it only works at night time.

    Is there any way to do this?

    Depending on the age of the sensor it may have bank switching.

    The bank switching in the sensor that has good contrasting light could switch the enables address of the sensor in the dark area.

    could you schedule a group to turn on/off at sunset/sunrise via a spectrum or other scheduling device?

    I've tried using bank switching to activate a group on one sensor - that group then enables/disables occupancy in the other sensor.

    I cant get it working though.

    I basically want sensor 1 to activate sensor 2 when sensor 1 is reading 0 - 40 lux.

    Any ideas where I might be going wrong?
