Good price, have a couple of these operating the landing/hallway lights. Work great.

£29.99 at Currys as well with C&C for those that might be interested.

Looks good. Do they keep lights for whole time it detects people's presence in a room, such as sitting in a living room, or is it based on a timer after PIR detection/activation.

In the hall and in the landing I use LED (bayonet fit) light bulbs which look like normal ones, but include a small PIR in the base. They were £12 each from Tesco. They work very well, switching the light on as someone walks nearby and off again after a minute. Saves nagging the children to turn them off!

Unfortunately it requires you to move...in my situation I have one in my bedroom, I want it to activate as a nightlight if I need to get up in the night and turn off after 2 minutes. However I also use my bedroom during the day to study etc. Currently it can’t turn lights off at night after 2 mins without also affecting it during the day. So when I study the lights turn off after two minutes! If it weren’t winter it probably wouldn’t be as much of an issue but that’s not much use. I have disabled it for now as they are useless to me in their current form (would be good for a landing/hallway though)

​Can you not run it off time rather than light level. Also from reviews looked like can change sensitivity and have different day and night settings.

You can change sensitivity (and it’s VERY good at detecting movement, don’t get me wrong) but that doesn’t help address the issue in question. And yes you can have day and night settings but those settings only affect what it does when it comes on, not when it turns them off. The setting that controls when they turn off after xx minutes is for all windows and you can’t change it granularly. I hope that’s clear but happy to address any other questions. I am in talks with Philips at the moment on twitter (you can go see it) so maybe I am not understanding the set up, but what they have mentioned so far backs up what I’m saying and I haven’t been able to set it how I want

Good price but I've been getting them cheaper via Amazon warehouse with the current 20% off deal.

Just for your information you can use the Philips API interface to create different day/night off settings. See: https://www.developers.meethue.com/philips-hue-api

It a lot more technical than using the app but it is possible.

I have landing lights upstairs and hallway light downstairs activated by motion sensor. The hallway lights are also on timer from sunset to midnight. The problem I would have was when the motion sensor was activated at say 9pm the routine would shut off both my landing and entrance lights after the specified time. I only wanted this to happen after midnight when I wanted my hallway lights to turn off.

I used the API to disable the current off rule (turning both lights off no matter if it was day or night) and create two new rules in it's place, one for 8am to midnight (day) to just turn off the landing light and one from midnight to 8am (night) to turn off both.

Nice one - I actually took to reddit after I made these posts and asked around for peoples favorite apps for advanced programing. iconnect hue is what I’m using now, and addressed all my issues - it even haa an option to ignore all rules if the group is already on, which you might find useful so that if you just want the lights on the motion sensor doesn’t override it with its rules, one of my biggest annoyances.
