17 quid, where from?

So they are not £17 then?

Also worth noting that the Ikea sensor doesn't work with HomeKit, in contrast to the rest of the Trådfri system. As mentioned above, if you're using HomeKit to manage your system then I'd go with the Hue sensor
Is IKEA TRADFRI good? If anyone has used it, could you please provide review? Thanks,

i use one with hue and it’s been pretty good. It’s never missed a beat.

it works differently to how the hue motion sensor does that has both positive and negative. Ikea buttons and sensors connect straight up to the light and directly control so if the hub stops working or loses connection with the lamp the switching still works. On the flip side there’s no way in hue to play with the device in software.

if anybody likes a play homeassistant and a conbee you can configure anything to work with anything. It’s really cool

Have you used it with the Hue lights/bridge? Just wondering how it is. I just have Hue everywhere and this is such a cheap sensor to use with it compared to how much the Hue ones are

I have one still on my hue zigbee network, but if you have all hue lights it’s not that much use to you as it’ll only link directly to Ikea lamps (the Ikea lamps can be linked to the hue bridge) . I have lots of GU10’s that would be cost prohibitive to go hue so I bought Ikea ones at £7 a pop And they sit on hue. The motion sensor just works so I’ve kept it in place.

The hue ones you can interact with way more, but if you have Ikea lights, and just want a sensor to bring them on this works a treat. I’ve since moved onto deconz/home assistant so I use cheaper aqara sensors now and it’s pretty versatile you can link it to pretty much anything I’ve got a good functioning alarm system with a control panel.

Hi,

Don't you need the Xiaomi hub for the aqara sensors?

I wouldn’t bother. I’ve got lots of different ones running side by side. I can’t even reset some of the TRADFRI stuff anymore. The cheap Chinese stiff works great. Smart home tech isn’t their core business and it shows
Im not sure on how good these are with Hue but the tradfri sockets work perfect and add as a light so it doesn't count as an accessory , i have got the Hue motion sensors and find them abit iffy, on tuning my light back on soon after it turned off.

I had a system for a year when they first came out. I don't recommend them. Full of bugs and would only work half the time. Although, it may have been updated since.
Thanks - Sorry, please can you explain it as newbie to me. How do I install them? what do I install them on?

It's not straightforward, I'd suggest you get the smartthings motion sensor, if you have one of their hubs.

Id have agreed with you a year ago, my system has been solid for a long time now. I have Tradfri, Hue and deconz networks all interacting and I don’t have any excessive issues. When I first bought the hub (to update some Ikea lights) I had far too many issues, it was really buggy but that seems to have been fixed with updates. I don’t notice a difference between those and hue.

Thank you for all that information and taking the time to write it. I appreciate that. I’ll definitely look into the stuff you’re using, I’d like the sensors everywhere but Hue are so expensive.

look into home assistant and deconz you can use cheap aqara And other zigbee sensors, it links really well with hue. I run it all on a Pi 4.
