It’s mostly for A/C. Hotels are tired of people leaving their air on at 64 degrees with full speed fan all day long. So the motion detector is activated from 8:00am to 8:00pm in most hotels.

That’s a motion detector. Assuming it is in some way attached to the lights.

Fire alarm, I believe?

Creepy. I would ask the hotel. Could have been installed by a previous guest

Probably not fire alarm, cuz got this

Motion sensor. Your lights must be motion activated

This seems odd. This is a SmartThings motion sensor. I’d alert the front desk. The hotel shouldn’t be using this. If your lights don’t look iot then someone is monitoring who is in the room https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/31toSDqUsVL._SY355_.jpg

Oops sorry. Yes, exactly what @P3 said.

And sometimes they mess up and have it active all the time

I’m watching you 😳

Confirmed. Motion sensor for AC

Have been interviewing — at first just to see what the pay would be/for fun — but now I am really interested and think I’d jump ship if I got it and pay is almost triple what I make now. I know if I leave my partner will be left with ALL of my work and now help and he’s been a tremendous mentor and I really appreciate him. Should I tell him now I’m interviewing. I don’t wanna leave him drowning and leave in a bad way because I really do appreciate him. Any advice?
