It's almost 3 times the price of the annkke lol This cannot be compared. I have a £30 annkke system(120 on amazon) from a Chinese website that was on offer at the time and it's more than capable. I've assisted the police 3 times with it too.
Annke is cheap but works, the software is rubbish and you have basic configuration. I have mine running, bought 6 years ago, I probably would go for something better next time, but here are a few things you should keep in mind: - POE (Power over Ethernet) is a must, with one cable you get signal and power and you don't need to be bother with WiFi signal - camera field of view is important especially with the increase of resolution, as you can cover more area and keep a decent quality and detail - cameras placed downward from the top are nearly useless, you need to have a good pov to identify subjects - ignore real time notifications as you will have false positives, especially at night, the first breath of wind will move the spider net in front of the camera and you get a motion .

You don't have a linky for them from AliExpress do you please?
Got the same thing from Aliexpress for $4 each. Can cofirm they are not very waterproof, Splashproof etc. A little Vaseline rubbed round the rim (shock) and switch done the job.
You are probably right, it is just says it is an outdoor light in the title.
Not really an outdoor light in my opinion. Won't vote either way. This item is suitable for indoor use or sheltered outdoor use. This item is significantly SPLASHPROOF and is suitable for outdoor use under a cover such as a porch, lantle or roof/gutter overhang. This product is NOT suitable for direct exposure to weather such as installation on an uncovered patch of wall or fencing. This product is SPLASHPROOF and not SUBMERSIBLE / WEATHERPROOF / WATERPROOF

Ah, I didn’t stroll back far enough to see that deal. Knew they had been on a silly price somewhere and stopped looking with this JL deal. Cheers
No need for a new post as you just need to request the existing deal below to be reactivated, IF there is clear evidence of stock. https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/hue-outdoor-motion-sensor-3696630
Currys have this on sale for £18.97 at the mo but only as click and collect and only at certain stores (not sure which ones though so couldn’t post up as a new deal
Well believe it or not I missed out on my own deal, I put it in my basket then was looking for something else to buy to get free collection, I then decided to share the deal on here, by the time I went to pay 5 mins later it wouldn't take my payment and stated out of stock, lesson learnt, don't share a deal until you get in first yourself! (annoyed)
Managed to get one on the previous deal a couple of weeks ago, same as this as it went out of stock v quickly. I requested a notification when back in stock and once notified I ordered immediately, only to then get a message that it was out of stock again but my order still held and would apparently be sent out when stock allowed. A few days later it was dispatched so all good. Even though it says out of stock, keep trying as it is a bargain price, even with the delivery charge.
Never miss a 'PIR Lights' deal again!

It was my first Hue outdoor sensor. Can't recommend it enough (y) Same options as the indoor sensor but with daylight sensitivity setting. I changed over from a standard motion detector light.
Cheers for that. Got hue set up indoors and looking for security lighting out the back. Undecided on cheap floodlight set up or Add to my smart set up lol. Preferably battery so not got to faff about with wiring through the wall!!
I have got it linked up to a Hue white bulb in an outdoor fitting. Both connect through the bridge over wi-fi. Endless possibilities in the Hue app for setting things up.
What outside light do you use with it? Is it wireless? Cheers J
Got two of these when same price on Amazon a few days ago. One is up controlling an outdoor light. Absolutely flawless in operation.

Philips Hue Outdoor Sensor £3.50 p+p (free over £50) or free to local coop or waitrose click and collect over £30.
Ordered yesterday morning and received confirmation email but another email this morning saying it's out of stock. Price has also dropped to £16.12 on the website. Will just have to wait and see I suppose :/
Managed to nab one this morning before they went out of stock again. Thanks Op (y) .
Ahhh so they do! Guess that's my mistake in that case! Been a while since I nought my first lot!
Thanks. In the description it says connection type BNC cable not ethernet cable... So I think its not PoE...
How much is the NVR?
Yeah great bit of kit. Had setup for 2 years and not had a single issue. Really good quality image, can access feed remotely on mobile app as well. Lots of functionality in the Swann HomeSafe app with ability to setup up alerts, timings etc.
Any good as I'm thinking of buying them?

For all of you asking if the light in this deal can be permanently switched on, the answer is no. That functionality is called manual override which this light does not have. However, the LAP ones from Screwfix do support this functionality as I learned when I posed this question in Discussions - see link I posted earlier.
Yep. I bet the neighbours will be delighted to check your front drive every time a cat walks by. They don't keep burglars away I'm telling you. Crime rates are higher on full moons and higher on security lit homes. They need light to work. If your home fronts a road make sure it doesn't dazzle Road users
Have them on the front of your house and it will keep the burglars away! They are very bright and will alert anyone looking or neighbors
Why buy these? Seriously, burglars love them! Just please use responsibly and position them carefully if you must, avoid using anywhere near a road, and ensure no light leaves your property boundary, especially near neighbours bedrooms.

Interesting. I've looked at my hue app but can't see how I can adjust the lights to trigger when at 1%. WhatsApp do you use? I'd really like to rectify this. Thanks Using the Hue App but you need to go to Accessory Setup then to the actual sensor. Down at the bottom is the adjustments for sensitivity (motion and daylight). Set the light to 1% or just wait for them to fade to 1% just before they turn off automatically. Then move the daylight sensor up until it says "Will trigger with current light level". Did this last night again with my new sensors and sure enough they will immediately re-trigger when you walk back in. The only downside is they may trigger when you normally wouldn't need them but they shouldn't come on all the time. I think it is caused by the light sensor not resetting and so sits in an "enough light, don't trigger" state and takes a minute or so to reset. This way it doesn't have to reset.
It works!!!!! Thanks so much. How did you sus that out? Incredible that Philips haven't updated their FAQ's. Thanks again
Thanks so much for you speedy reply and patience. I'm clearly not as good with tech as I like to think. I'll give it a go. Much appreciated

The bubbles are fixed, there is no liquid in it, I have it,, paid around 50 quid for it a few years ago so this is a great price. For those going on about not much light for me it's just about giving a little light when I'm arriving home or seeing who is at the door in the dark so it serves its purpose.
Ours is pretty good confirmation through within the hour
.....that's what she said ! ;)
I was wondering that too? Are the bubbles cast in the clear resin? or is it really full of liquid (horror) and if so do the bubbles "Bubble" ? So many questions lol
Jist paid £30 odd for this

I have done the same as I prefer to choose my own light fittings. I don’t believe there is much of a saving though if you compare like with like. This fitting listed includes colour bulbs. To get the equivalent you’d most likely need 2 x gu10 hue colour bulbs (for an up / down light). They are around £75 for a pair. Bolt on a sensor at £30 and that leaves you with £25 for a fitting. Personally I still think it’s worth doing as I believe the led bulb is built in so can’t be replaced. I maybe wrong.
Exactly s what I did, bought 10 uplights from ebay and fired them with hue bulbs. Saved an absolute fortune, and functionally it was identical to the hue light fitting.
No reason, you would just need two bulbs and the fitting. Would probably work out a bit cheaper depending on what you purchase
Why not just buy a hue bulb and stick in into ANY trendy outdoor light fitting you want for a fraction of the price and the same functionality as this. It just doesn’t make sense (confused)
Music to my ears. Buying one.

Just got these today and just in case anyone is interested they can be added to the echo with built in zigbee hub without having the hue hub. The only issue is that you cannot control the sensitivity in alexa app. You can run routines etc but would like to be able to set sensitivity. Have to say though that the detection distance so far is extremely good for my needs. i have it mounted at 2.2m and getting over 10m detection at the minute.
They are back in stock now at the time of writing this comment as I got 2 ordered
One of the "hidden" uses of these are the luminance sensors. I have two installed, one on each side of the house, and use them to trigger indoor motion sensors based on light levels outside. I need two as direct sunlight does somewhat skew results :)
That’s a fair point. You have 3 sensitivity levels that you can select. Also the angle of the sensor makes a difference in terms of its reach. I actually use the indoor sensors mounted in a sheltered position just above the door. They both point down around 45 degrees (I have one front and rear). This reach of the sensors is about 2-3m in this configuration for me. Animals will set it off. For me this is a benefit as it reminds me to let the dog back in when the lamp starts flashing! I have my front door sensor set to flash my lounge lamp once and my garden door 4 flashes so I can distinguish between the two. It actually works pretty well. I recommend the iConnectHue app if you go down the Hue & sensor route.
I like the idea of flickering the lights but fear the sensor may be too sensitive with pets around outside?
