Re: HC-SR501 PIR - stop false positives?

I'm having big problems with my PIR sensors as well - to the extent that they aren't really usable. Is there a working solution that actually works? I'd like to continue using ESPEasy so programing the 8266 by myself isn't really a solution for me.

On another note, I'm having problem making a rule that needs to contain a formula within the SendToHTTP command. Is it possible to do this? Look at the last portion of below rule, I need to multiply the value by 6 (to get flow/min) but ESPEasy won't accept this formatting. Do I need to remind everyo...

Re: Water flow sensor YF-S201C

This one seems interesting, seems to be very similar to the one grovkillen recommended but with threaded connections and supposedly a MAX flow of 10l instead of 6.

Re: Water flow sensor YF-S201C

Thanks! Do you know anything how they perform upwards 10l/min even though they are rated to MAX 6l/min? I will occasionally have MAX flow in the boat which would mean about 10l/min.
