I have a Circle View Doorbell. The HomeKit settings for the doorbell contains the option "When Motion Sensor Detects Motion, Turn on Porch Light". In this case, "Porch Light" is an overhead light on the porch which is controlled by a Lutron switch/hub and is connected to HomeKit.
I've enabled this setting because I like the idea that motion on the porch will turn on the overhead light.
The issue I'm having is that HomeKit turns on the Porch Light in response to motion and then, several minutes later, turns the light off. When HomeKit turns the light off, the Circle View Doorbell detects the event as motion (I see the motion indicator pop up in HomeKit) and that, in turn, causes the light to come on.
So once motion is detected, the light just ends up cycling off and on every few minutes.
Is this a known issue and is there some way to fix it? Thanks.
