So, how do others arm their sensors for security purposes? Do you rely strictly on the built in Vera notification and typical sensor arming? Are you using Reactor to more granularly arm sensors and weed out false positives?
I have a myriad of devices that can be used as security sensors:
- GE/JASKO Switches: Work pretty well, but sometimes generate false positives. Managed to weed this out by checking a small sustained time duration.
- Ecobee Sensors: Will show occupancy for 30 minutes after last movement. So, need to arm these after the last movement has ceased. Not sure if these show any false positives yet.
Sounds like my best bet is to use a Reactor security sensor, and when away mode is triggered, check another Reactor group which aggregates sensor status. Alert if something goes true.
