Going through the (Eve) Motions

The other day I was involved in a discussion about how Eve Motions work. Some participants were concerned that Eve Motions always show motion for just the configured ‘on’ time and then go off until retriggered. The effect of this would be that if, for example, you were controlling a light, that light would always go off briefly before being triggered again which would be annoying and inconvenient.

However, this log (above) from my own lounge Motion, that is used to curtail the heating when the room is unused, shows ‘on’ events often being much longer that the 30 minutes that I have set (see right).  My understanding therefore is that the Motions trigger on first movement and continue to report ‘Motion’ until the delay time after motion ends.  I can’t otherwise explain Motion evens that last for variable lengths and, in s9me cases, multiple hours.
