Example 1 (Set motion sensitivity based on light threshold level):

This example creates a local variable, SensorName, with Text as data type and assigns it as the name of the sensor. Then, the current state of the sensor is retrieved and checks the boolean value of the Dark parameter. If the value is "True", the sensitivity of the sensor is set to 2 otherwise the value is set 0. A voice message is then sent in Speech Output to notify the updated setting.
