Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Purchased several of these to add to the Hive Hub in a vacant property, and they have been in for around 2 months now. No issues whatsoever, I get an instant phone and watch alert every time there is movement in the house (i.e. letting agents, etc). I have just added lightbulbs on a random schedule at 50% power (to save electricity) for security purposes, but also to come on at 100% power when the motion sensors are activated. Great system for peace of mind and convenience, and works well with no issues so far.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Could be better I brought this sensor and hive lamp to install in a downstairs toilet. The good Great price, works with Philips hue lamps, Installation and setting up is easy with the Hive app. The sensor has sticky back pads supplied to attach the sensor to the wall. The bad The sensor take a long time to react to motion, up to five seconds (which is an age if you are waiting for a light to turn on) Also the app has to be set up, so not to bring on the light during daylight by using clock. So if it has gone dark early due to the weather, the lamp will not come on. I couldn’t cope with the failings, so I’ve sent the items back and purchase the Philips Hue version, which reacts quicker to motion and also doesn’t bring the lights on if there is enough natural daylight, with a built in lux sensor. Sorry Hive you could learn much from the market leader.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well It will be interesting to see how long the battery lasts, but it is a great bit of kit. It will alert you if there is any movement and from the app you can see all times movement occurred over the last week. Naturally you can use movements to activate Hive sockets or lamps. A mains spike caused by a very brief power interruption did indicate a movement but that has only ever happened once, so a great item to own.

Will this work in an open porch, if in a position that guarantees it won't get wet (under the roof)?

Location is about 3 metres from the Hive hub; no chance whatsoever of getting wet, as it would be installed on the inside roof, facing floor/ground. It would not be insulated from outdoor temperatures, which I assume would impact battery life in winter.

Hello, our motion sensors are for indoor use only therefore should not be used in any outdoor setting. Thanks, The Hive Team

What is the sensing range of this device please

Asked by: Albert001
Hi Albert001 - our Hive Motion Sensors can detect motion up to 5m away. Thanks, The Hive Team

Would this work if I placed it in the back of my van? The van would be approximately 2-3 metres away from the hub, so if anyone gets into the back of my van to rob me of my tools would it send an alert to my phone straight away?

Asked by: Branning
Hi there, unfortunately we would not recommend this type of set up as the Hive motion sensor requires a 24/7 connection to the Hive hub within the same building, as the signals would be travelling through external walls through the open air and into the van this is going to cause issues with signal and the device will drop off line and cannot be relied on. Thanks, The Hive Team

Does it work with bulbs

Can the sensor turn light on if triggered
Asked by: DIYAustin
This device will turn on/off a bulb , however the bulb needs to be a Hive bulb and a Hive hub is also required to support this activity. I’m currently using this sensor with a Hive GU10 bulb in a cupboard so when the cupboard door opens or close it activates the bulb.

External use

Can this be used externally to turn on security lights via Hive smart plug?
Asked by: DonH88
Hi there The motion sensors are designed for indoor use only, we don't recommend using them outside the house as they can be affected by weather conditions and the signal strength will drop considerably, meaning the sensor can lose connection to the Hive hub. Thanks The Hive Team
