Hi Luke,

good news; you don't need any multiple sensor to use our Occupancy Sensor in your L-shaped room!

Indeed our Occupancy Sensor P1 model is designed for this kind of problems, i.e. rooms where AC unit is not facing the entire room.

To solve this problem just set the P1 on "Apartment Mode" setting.
In this mode, the Occupancy Sensor P1 will remain ┬źdormant┬╗ waiting to receive information from the door sensor mounted on the apartment entrance door. When someone opens and closes the door to enter the apartment, Occupancy Sensor P1 is activated and monitors the room in which it is installed for the established observation time. During this time, if Occupancy Sensor P1 detects movement within its control range, it leaves the air conditioner ON and no longer intervenes to turn it off. This remains until there is a new change of condition on the door sensor mounted at the door; in fact, when someone leaves the apartment and closes the door again, if Occupancy Sensor P1 detects no more movement for the set observation time, it deduces that the apartment is empty and turns the air conditioner OFF, as soon as the observation time expires.

You can set the observation time choosing between 5, 15, 30 or 60 minutes.

This setting is optimal for apartments like yours L-shaped room!
