I bought quite a bit of the Hue stuff when it was on offer but the normal non-offer prices for stuff are freaking ridiculous. To me this doesn't seem like a massive saving considering everything seems to be around £5 cheaper than RRP everywhere as mentioned.
Same price as Currys which has been this for a while now.

No way near as good as the 17.99 last year but need one so it will have to do. Heat added
Not sure where this would get used tbh, doesn't it only turn off lights if it doesn't detect motion?
So it'd be useful in a room where there's constant movement?

I'd imagine it'd make more sense if it was in a doorway, and it could be used to toggle lights on / off, as you entered or left the room, but then it wouldn't know if it was you leaving, or someone else coming in

Is it? 34.99 at Maplin.

Note however that there is an older version and a newer version. Not sure which this one is.
May be the best price now but if you can wait wait for Black Friday, prime days and other amazon flash deals for hue kit. I got motion sensor +hub for £39.99 over the Black Friday weekend and should sell on the hub for £30ish

You can specify how long the period of inactivity needs to be before triggering the turn off scene. The options range from 5secs up to about 16 hours from memory

Going to point one on the landing and one on the stairs so lights come on in the middle of the night should a call of nature occur or need something downstairs. I do like the fact that you can have the lights come on at low levels so it doesn't disturb others.

Nice deal. I need to get the Hub, wish I'd been in the market a week or two ago for the deals!!!
Awesome addition to any hue system but this price is nothing special.
SmartThings motion sensors were £18 recently. Slightly different way of configuration, but price difference is quite significant.

This is my use, night time really low dimmed red for finding way to bathroom in the middle of the night.
I know it’s say for indoors use but I’m wondering if I can put it in the porch as a security light setup?

I've got a couple in Samsung flavour, but basic rules I use as an idea:

After 10pm, any movement on the landing sensor turn the landing light on (but only to 20%.)
After midnight, any movement on the hallway sensor turn both landing light and hallway light on full (that's enough to wake me - thinking of intruders.)
Hallway sensor on a constant/general motion sensor.
I'm debating getting a bedroom motion sensor pointed at the doorway that pings the light on for 2 minutes after movement is detected outside of sleeping hours.
And similar for the garage.

I'd like one for outside but being battery powered and indoors, no issues. Outdoors with colder temps I'm guessing a motion sensor would munch through batteries. And would need waterproofing somehow.

I don't know how clever the Philips ecosystem is but with ST there's plenty of ways to make them useful.

I need 6 of these babies to put around the house (hallway, landing, lounge, toilet, ensuite, bathroom) but going to see if they drop some more over the coming weeks.

Has anyone successfully put one of these in the bedroom? I wouldn't mind the light coming on automatically when entering the room when it's dark but I don't want it coming on and off when i too and turn in my sleep

When they control lights I.e. when they come on and what colour etc can all be controlled with routines I.e night light after midnight or not at all

Which bit is the actual sensor? The ball looking thing or the black spot? If it's the ball then I could tape up half of it so I need to be standing for it to get line of sight

Put it under the bed, or at very low level.

The ball is the sensor
it also senses ambient light, which is used in the trigger configuration (ie only trigger lights if it's below a given light level)

If you've got smartthings then get the Xiaomi sensors, you could get a handful for that price.
I wish people who post deals would briefly explain what these gadgets do in the description and what you need for the system to work....

Otherwise £30 for a motion sensor that doesn't do anything by itself (or needs another say £200 worth of kit) doesn't sound like a good deal!

If the power is on to the lights then the fan will run. You are only turning the bulb on and off. The rest would keep running.

True. However I find that in the dead of night, even 1% feels like the sun just entered your hallway.

Really? I thought the app made it quite intuitive, as you move the slider it tells you whether there is enough or not enough light to trigger.

My lights and fan aren’t linked so I guess I wouldn’t have a problem. My fan comes on when it detects moisture regardless of the light state

Yeah I’ve been thinking where this could be used and the most obvious places are the bathroom and landing so when people get up in the middle of the night they can see where they’re going.
