Triggers your lights when motion is detected

Change the way you control your lights and set your smart bulbs to turn on as you walk in a room with the Philips Hue Smart Motion Sensor. Ideal for when you're coming home or waking up in the morning, the sensor can automatically turn on soft and gentle night lights without you needing to click a switch or find your phone.

Day and night settings

You can program the sensor to turn on at any time of day to provide reassuring light for your family. Using the Philips Hue app you can control the tone and level of the lighting to suit your needs.

Want to expand your smart home? The motion sensor is compatible with other Hue accessories (sold separately), like the Hue Tap and Hue Motion Sensor. The sensor's also compatible with Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit and Google Assistant - so you can control everything with a single voice command.

Portable design

The Hue Motion Sensor runs on two AAA batteries which are included in the box. This means that you can use the motion sensor straight away, positioning it anywhere around your home where it is required. And to save energy, the integrated sensor will detect when rooms are vacant and automatically turn off the lights.

Please note: A compatible hub (sold separately) is required to connect your smart home device.

What's not advertised and commonly known about is these also have a temperature sensor inside them.
For example for different temperatures in a baby's room (or say elderly) the colour lights could change to visually show if the room is too hot or cold:

There are limits to how they can be used, but may well be supported more in the future. Philips hue stuff is very undersold with what's inside them, & cleverly integrates into loads of stuff if you do a bit of research, like nest smoke alarms & nest thermostat to switch lights full on & flash in red if there's a smoke alarm going off. Good for the deaf for example.
We have 4 of these sensors around the house & they're brilliant for places like cloakroom toilets, landings, hallways, stairs etc. We have them in all four places & they switch lights on & off & dim / full brightness at different times of day & light levels & set routines. Like something from a scifi film.

Cheapest it has been for some time.
Great price, been waiting for one of these to drop below 30 for a while now

I believe hue motion sensor compatibility is very limited. Probably it's Philips way of making more money. May be of you an IT guru there's a complicated way of getting it work. I'm sure someone will comment on that.

Believe as long as they use the ZigBee communication standard they should work. For example I have the ikea Tradfri GU10s on a sensor in the kitchen.

If you have Apple Devices then you can use it as a Motion sensor that triggers any other HomeKit device...including non-Philips stuff.

The hue bridge does not expose the motion sensor to SmartThings.

In order to use it with SmartThings, you have to connect it directly to The smart things hub, in which case it will be invisible to the hue bridge.

Connecting it directly is not recommended by either Phillips or SmartThings, but there are some community members who do it.

Ok thank you very much, I'll stick with the smartthings sensors as they are much more versatile as they work very well with hue lights through the smartthings hub and as security sensors with smartthings and are cheaper usually.

I also have some Smartthings sensors and some Xiaomi sensors which works great with Philips hue lights and also they are cheaper then Philips hue motion sensor.

Do you have a link to the Xiaomi ones that you use?
They've only got stock in stores >100 miles away from me. Not sure the savings will cover the fuel!

Just for information for anyone considering all options, the smartthings sensors also have a temperature sensor in them.

Yes. If they work with the hub, they are controllable.

In-store stock cheaker on Currys website is never accurate better to visit In-store possibly you might find some in stock.
I've got some hue sensors configured with alexa app to trigger an announcement when motion detected downstairs and I'm asleep.

They're quite versatile

You can't link Xiaomi sensors with hue hub, Xiaomi sensors tend to work only with Xiaomi hub but it can still work with Smartthings hub with the device handlers installed through Smartthings IDE. Check below link for more info.

Hue hub is limited to hue devices, but Smartthings hub support mostly all smart home devices currently on market and it looks like soon they might support Xiaomi devices as they are dominating smart home devices at very low price.

One last question, if I get a smart things hub do I still need the hue hub or will my hue lights connect direct to the smart things hub?

Yes. The only officially recommended way to use Hue devices with SmartThings is by using a Hue bridge.
There are several reasons to use the bridge.
- Other Integrations
- Use of Hue Scenes
- Not using the Bridge can mess up your zigbee network
- It’s much harder to reset individual hue bulbs without the bridge, and it may require buying an additional device
- You can use the “power on” setting feature for bulbs that are connected to the hue bridge
- Support will only help you if you are using the bridge

Thanks

I'll keep an eye out for some deals on a smartthings hub and go from there.

The instructions for adding xiaomi sensors didn't look too testing so that should save a few quid.
Does this code work with other HUE products? Need a tap switch to complete my whole flat setup 🤪🤪

Code no longer works.
