Motion Sensors... (KAKU, Trust...), what now?
Hi people!

I'm new to this and already ordered the 433mhz TX and RX stuff from the pilight shop to replace the too-short-range I bought from a chinese store.

At the moment I've been able to receive the On signal from the motion sensor, and the Off which triggers once it doesn't detect movement for a time lapse.

But, what now? I can add the protocol, IDs, units and stuff to the config.json, but how can I read the values when motion is triggered? Does pilight has something implemented for that which I haven't seen yet?

What I'm doing now is launching a PHP script embedding the API protocol via sockets (there's a sample somewhere in here), parse the resulting string which pilight returns (a huge string, due to the detection of several protocols), and use another PHP to return 0 or 1 if the signal's state is ON or OFF. I can call the URL in Homebridge every few seconds to ask for the motion status.

But I think that must be something lighter or easier or it wouldn't have sense to add a motion sensor to the config file.

What I'm missing guys??

THANKS FOR BEING THERE! I'm learning a lot since I began with this a month ago with my poor linux and electronics skills. Smile
