    Motion sensor support through 3rd party systems

    Is it possible to add motion sensor support by using one of the third-party integrations with the SBP?

    I'm hopeful that the Ecobee occupancy sensors used in their thermostat will be able to control Caseta via Apple HomeKit.

    They're used to adjust the temperature when detecting motion in a room, but if the upcoming triggers in iOS 9 can use them for feedback, this could be a viable solution.

    Followup: Looks like Ecobee has a motion trigger variable that can be used in an IFTTT receipe, so if that can be tied to a Caseta scene, that should work now (and without HomeKit). It's a bit of a workaround, but should achieve the desired result. Trade off is obviously having to invest in the Ecobee to make it work, but I intend to do so for HomeKit anyways.

    A followup... This doesn't work yet but may be possible in iOS 9:

    Admittedly, I have not yet tried the beta.

    Other than waiting on Homekit, is there any other way to integrate occupancy sensors into Caseta with Smartbridge pro?
