These are good, I have 3 but think this is too expensive.
I got mine with a hue bridge, think it was £45 for both.
Sold the bridge for £30 so cost me £15.
Ordered 3 lots to be able to do it
Wouldn't mind another though.
Personally, I'll buy these once they're £20 or less. Hopefully on prime day.

Does anyone know if you can use a tradfri motion sensor with hue bridge without having tradfri hub for initial setup?

I bought on Amazon in July last year for £17.99. Although it hasn't gone close since

These work just as well but you need the smartthings bridge...

how good (or bad) is the battery life and stability for these? If they are anything like the Samsung smartthings sensors then I have to AVOID them like a plague

Over a year on the included battery and still going.
Rock solid prob some of the most stable kit I've used.
Philips have been at this for a long time.
Well thought out and well built devices.
Cold. Regular price
Cheaper at Maplin, and nearly always this price (or less) at Amazon

Great monitor though
~£30 is normal stocked price for Amazon, they usually go down more on prime week as others have mentioned.

Great piece of kit though!

Still? They’re prices were crazy when they were in business.
Closing down they are just as crazy

Where/what do people use these for? Its one of those things i'd "like to want" but can't think of a reason for it.

I use it in my hallway so if the kids get up in the night for the toilet or something.

Set to only activate at night and it turns the hallway light on nightlight for 2 mins.

I had thought of putting one in the garage as well or understairs cupboard

I have mine in the bathrooms as the kids can't quite reach the pull string. Comes on for 2 mins then switches off. You can apply different rules for day and night and also tell it what you consider to be day and night.

Also good for landings as mentioned above. My wife and kids are always leaving the landing light on so this stops that.

Voted cold though as £30 is the normal Amazon price.
How well do the batteries on these last?

Do they react to cats/dogs walking around or can you set the sensitivity?

You can set both the movement sensitivity and the light level sensitivity (I.e. if its "night" but theres enough daylight out, it'll deactivate the sensor)
Are these smart enough to tell when its night and day so you can set different settings for those times?

For example, not to turn on at all when its clearly mid day and light outside and to come on at night when its pitch black?

Or do you need to set timers which would obviously have to be changed multiple times a year when the nights are drawing out etc?

Do the lights also stay on permanently once your motion sets them off?
34.99 NOW
They have light sensors in them, they are smart...hub is linked to internet so knows the time so you don't have to change thru year for BST etc
I've had one of these for over a year and the battery is still going. Same goes for the dimmer switches. Not sure how they're still going but they seem to use no power at all!

Also worth noting - these also have a hidden temperature sensor in them. Currently the Hue app doesn't take any notice of this sensor but if you connect it to apple home (possibly android home or whatever it's called too though I have never tried that). You can see the temperature and light values in degrees and lux respectively.

So you program in those two fields to tell it when you consider it might or day. (If you need three instead of two then check out Hue Labs as that’s beta atm). With light level sensitivity you move a slider and it’ll tell you whether it would activate or not based on the light currently detected. So it’ll override based on light levels.

As someone else also said you can see the light level and temperature levels in HomeKit too.
