Philips Hue Motion Sensor

Philips Hue will have new device soon. It’s called Hue Motion Sensor. It detects your motion and turns the lights on.

Automatically on and off

Your movement triggers the lights on. And when there is no motion detected for a certain amount of time, it will turn the lights off automatically. You can add the device in Philips Hue app like other switches (Tap, Dimmer Switches). Up to 3 rooms can be added and controlled by each sensor. This setting allows you to make more varieties of setups than conventional motion sensors and lights. It’s perfect for hallway, bathroom, garage, basement or a place you need the light for a short time.

Day and Night Setting

You can set brightness and scene of the light (if you use color bulbs) when it’s triggered by the sensor. Plus, you can configure different light settings for day and night. For example, The sensor turns on an average bright light in a hallway during the day. And at night, it turns on a gentle nightlight to care for other members of your family.

Daylight Sensor

Philips Hue Motion Sensor has a built-in light sensor, so when an area is bright, it won’t turn on lights. You can adjust the sensitivity in the app. So, you will have the light only when you need it. It helps you to save energy.

Place it anywhere

It requires 2 AAA batteries (included). There is no wire. It’s so easy to set up. You can just put it on a bookshelf, mount it on a wall (screw included), or attach to a metal surface like a refrigerator with a magnet (also included). The magnet is strong enough to stick to a single screw such as a screw holding electric switch cover.


A variety of set-ups can be made, for not only scenes but also differently by times. I bet you can make a perfect fit to your routine. The sensor has no wire, plus included screw and magnet allow you to place the sensor in the best position. Philips Hue Motion Sensor is a great new item for your smart home products.
