Please read the release notes carefully since this update requires adjustments to your Raspberry Pi configuration!
I have sucessfully installed the PIR-Sensor. Now I want to tune the Sensor. Is there a possibility to track, when the monitor is turned off?
I want to adjust the delay time and the distance.
Yes, it has the knobs. But I want a programm which logged the time, when the monitor starts or shut down.
I unfortunatly cann´t programm it, because I don´t have the knowledge.
@shgmongohh And you want this, to adjust delay and distance accordingly? I have used a simple python program for that, maybe I can find it again.
Edit: Never mind, but if you just want to know, when the sensor goes off or on this tutorial might help.
I will try it.
I want to know if for example the monitor stays off during the night. I have the feeling, that he sometimes turns on when nobody is around. Thats the reason I want to trigger the on/off time.
When I have the times I can also adjust the minutes he stays on with the knob.
Can anybody tell me, how to write a python programm to trigger the on / off time of the monitor? My monitor starts during the night. I want to now how often he starts.

@shgmongohh I have forked the original
MMM-Pir-Sensorrepo and made some mods to debug my own sensor last week.
If you add
debug: trueto the config of my forked code, you’ll get console info about when the sensor detects motion and when it doesn’t. Also note, I’ve renamed the
sensorPINconfig item to
sensorGpioto more accurately indicate the numeric determination.

Thanks alot for your help. I was on vacation and will try it now.
One stupid question, how is the debug info started?
As @jc21 suggested, add the line
debug: trueto the module’s config section, and restart MM, then look at the console log.
