    Good Motion Senior for Philips hue bulbs

    These sensors sound like a quick and easy fix for the problems associated with having Hue lights in key areas/rooms of your home like the master bathroom, pathways but not wanting to constantly carry your phone around everywhere to control these lights. So I bought one to fix my issue above (just wanted a configurable control method for lights in key, heavily trafficked room that did not require device-in-hand). Here's what I found and some things to consider before buying... *Customizability Issue--(Only one color or scene setting allowed): If you just set the lights to let's say orange, but your sensor only allows one color/scene selection so you set the sensor to turn light on to "bright" during the day because you don't always want your bathroom lights orange, then whenever the sensor picks up motion it will default to the selected/scene color from the sensor settings and trump the orange setting (even if you just reset the lights from bright to be orange). There's no adjusting this. The sensor will always change the lights to the sensor's default setting/color/scene. *Customizability Issue--(Only one day and one night setting allowed): The above point brings another point and note along with it. You only can set a single day and single night setting without further complications or customization. For example, I can't say between the hours of 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. I want "bright" lights but between 5-9 p.m. I want a dimmed setting and between 9 p.m.-6 a.m. I want the sensor to do nothing/keep lights completely off. This makes using the sensor problematic since now I pretty much can only have two settings and I am still required to grab my phone and go into Phillips Hue app (or third-party app) to change the lights; in effect, defeating the entire purpose of my use case/reasons for purchasing the sensor. *Customizability Issue--(One turn-off (inactive/no motion) setting allowed): So, maybe most of the time I want the light to turn off in 1 minute (quick bathroom stop) and other times I want it off in 20 minutes (i.e. when in the shower). No option here. One setting and one setting alone. So while in the shower, I find myself waving my hand like a crazy man out the shower curtain to activate the motion sensor because it's fickled when you set it to high sensitivity (turning on all the time at just a glance). And at low sensitivity my unit has issues with a steamy bathroom, so detecting motion during showering has seemingly appeared problematic as well. *Functional Issue--: As mentioned above, the device seems to have issues with its motion detection in steam-filled bathrooms. I wave my hand less than 4 feet away from this thing in a super-steamy room and it detected no motion. Remained in dark shower. Not sure if water vapor interferes with the sensor's ability to "see" things but the sensor simply did not work. This has occurred several times (attempted to troubleshoot by seeing if the battery was low, changing settings, etc. all to no desired effect). *Functional Issue--(Daylight sensitivity setting not working?): So, at times it says its inactive as there is sufficient daylight but activates anyway when motion is detected. Basically, this means setting the "daylight sensitivity" is rather pointless as the sensor activates with motion and turns lights on even when it is broad daylight (light coming through windows) and extra light is unneeded. I've tweaked this setting like 20 times with no change in the unwanted results.

    Works well, but still needs work

    The motion sensor itself works pretty well. The lights come on as soon as it sees you, the lag time is nearly imperceptible. I put this in my windowless bathroom and it's great. It's set to only turn on 1 bulb at it's lowest setting after 11PM so I'm not blinded in the middle of the night, full brightness during the day. Once motion has stopped, you can select one of 11 pre-set time periods ranging from 1 minute to an hour after witch the lights can be instructed to either turn off or do nothing. It does warn you a few seconds before the lights go off by dimming them to half brightness. The sensitivity of the sensor can be adjusted to thwart roaming pets, there are 3 settings and the app will show you what will happen at each setting. I will note that even at its highest setting it cannot see through a shower curtain. Be sure to set the off timer long enough to cover your shower time or be prepared to stick your arm out to reset it. You can also adjust the ambient light threshold to keep it from activating when there is already sufficient light in the room. The mounting thingy is cool, but requires you to screw the magnet piece into the wall. I tried using a 3M Comand strip, but it wouldn't stick to the rubberish covering. I was able to remove the covering and the strip did stick to the metal piece, but when mounted, you can't remove the sensor without pulling the magnet from the adhesive. A minor annoyance but worth noting. What needs more work, however, is the software. The only options you have are 2 time periods. They are pre-set for day and night, you can adjust the times to your liking, but the two periods must cover a 24 hour day. There is no option to add a 3rd (or more) period. You can set both periods to perform the same action, if you only need 1. The actions you can set are limited to activating a pre-set scene. If you have another schedule set to set a certain scene and the dog wanders by, the motion sensor setting will override the scene you've previously set. The only way around this is to disable the sensor in the app, then you have to remember to re-enable it. I'm hoping Philips will add some more functionality to this soon, but currently it's pretty much limited to closets and bathrooms. I would recommend this, but only in these situations at the moment.

    Works Great-Integration with App Confusing

    Bought this some time ago and am just now reviewing it. The sensor works extremely well, and reports movement immediately. It is small, and should fit into most any room without being obvious. The only problem I have with it is not with the sensor itself but how it integrates within the Hue App. I find the App to be somewhat confusing on where to get to things already, but in setting this sensor up to work with my lights got even more confusing. I have lights set up to come on and turn off at set times within the App. When I first set the sensor up I was wanting to have it work only at dark and turn lights on and off if they weren't on already. With the setup of the sensor you can tell it to turn on specific lights with movement, then have them turn off after a specific amount of time or just leave them on. I wanted them to turn off. Problem arose though when the set time of day turned them on, then something set the sensor off with motion. I had the setup to where it would turn lights off after 15 minutes, and so it did, but it wasn't already after the set time of day to have them turned off, so I had to go back and turn the lights back on. After a number of different setups, I figured out that the sensor needed to be set up with parameters outside of the timed setup I already had the lights on. It all works well now, but the information within the instructions should have pointed this out in some fashion to help the user understand the setup process better. I am pleased with the Hue system entirely and would recommend this product to others, but warn them that it may take a few attempts to get it integrated with their current setup correctly, unless the Hue documentation gets updated.

    Great but only for basic functionality

    I have two motion sensors and the software is too basic to handle it. I hate to start a review bashing something, but I had higher expectations for a $40 product that requires lots more invested in other hardware, including the bridge and lights. It's a great product and I would recommend it for anyone who doesn't mind using poorly written software. Adding the motion sensor into the mix makes for a pain when wanting to manually adjust lights, or having multiple sensors (multiple sensors are essentially incompatible). I expect the sensor with the most recent activity to take precedence but it seems to be that whichever sensor was triggered first takes precedence until the second sensor has no current motion. What I mean is that the second sensor will not detect motion if you go directly from being in view of sensor 1 to in the view of sensor 2. If it does detect motion, then it does not affect the lights. There is probably an advanced tasking software I can use for my Hue products, but I currently don't have time or the understanding to use the app. I have not experimented much with one yet and so I have no idea what the limit of functionality/logic is. I am unsure of what to say about having multiple sensors because it seems to be an experience that is not meant to exist. Yet, I would expect it to for the price you pay. In terms of the sensitivity or something of the sensor, it seems to be only sensitive to obvious motion. Sitting at your computer and typing will most likely not be detected, and it can not be detected from over 5 feet away. The farther the distance, the less the sensitivity. For remaining in a room, you will want the sensor to be at least 7 minutes or motion will not be detected at some point or another. It's annoying. To sum this up: If you adjust your lights a lot, this will not work for that set/room/you. If you rely simply on motion in a room, this should be fine.

    Ok, so the idea of this is GREAT! It was something I was wanting for some time now, due to the fact my entire home is hue lit. I have 57 total between bulbs, strips, blooms, Iris', & Go bowls. So this was a perfect addiction. I bought 2, because I only wanted it for VERY late night, when we have to get up on the middle of the night & walk thru the house to go to the bathroom, or going to the kitchen. There is where the problem falls. The fact that the ONLY options you get are to set a start time for day, &1 for night sucks. The times just tie to 1 another. & the 2nd opt is, after a certain amount of mins, one the sensor has been triggered, whether it's set to come on or not, you have to either set it to "Turn lights off" or "Do nothing".. Ok, the problem is, if you have a scene on, & is set to "Turn lights off after x mins", even if you have the sensor on "Do nothing" within a particular time frame, it'll cut your lights off, ruining your scene!!! If it's set to "Do nothing" after x mins, then when you actually need the lights, like in our case, the middle of the night, when the lights trigger on via the sensor, they will now stay on & never cut back off, bc it's set to "Do nothing".. So basically, Hue needs to add quite a bit more options to this. I have to manually turn the sensors off every morning before 5:30 am so it doesn't ruin our "Wake up scenes" as well as any other light scene throughout the day, & then manually turn them back on after midnight. That's not the way I should be having to have this work!.. So, foo they work? Yes! Do they need MORE work? Yes!..

    Philips motion sensor

    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    I gave it a 2 only because Philips limits the functionality via the software section for the motion sensor. Be assure that the motion sensor works fine, it works consistently and accurately. My issue with it is that you can't use it as a trigger for the full functionality of the other Philips products. You are only allowed to use the functionality of the Motion sensor section of the Philips app. So for example: If you have the colour bulbs you can't trigger a specific colour with motion. You are also limited to 2 programmed actions that are organized as "Day" & "Night". Thats it, you can tell the light/lights to do one thing during the day and something different at night. It also isn't HomeKit enabled which means that you can't use it as a trigger for other HomeKit actions, at-least at the time of this revue. Since I couldn't set different action for my hallway lights like I intended I moved the sensor to my front porch to turn the lights on when someone approached the front door. I think that most of this is software updatable but with out any notices from Philips giving the intentions to do so I would not recommend it as of yet, unless you need it just to turn on/off a light as I do for my front porch.

    I have now bought 6 of these to complement my Control4 home automation setup. The Control4 sensors are around $200 a piece. For that cost I could get 5 of these. They are small, easy on the eyes, and work well. The nice thing is they also include built-in temperature sensing which you can use to trigger functions (like turn on heat when it gets too cold in a specific area). So now I have temperature readings from around the house. They were simple to add and configure through the Philips Hue app. I do notice a slight delay from the time the sensing happens to the time an action is triggered but it's likely due to the bridge between the sensor and my automation system. You also have the ability to adjust motion and light level sensitivity which is nice as well. The kit is packaged well and comes with a small magnetic mounting base and appropriate wall fasteners. I would have liked a little more information on the beam spread (I think it's 120 degrees, so 60 degrees to each side, not sure about top to bottom) so I can better determine best placement but it seems like corners of a room are the recommended location. I have some of mine mounted on the ceiling facing down for some entrances and that seems to work ok as well. Overall, happy with the product.

    We use the sensor in our pantry and closet, but throughout it would be great if we had one for the laundry room. It's simple to connect to the Philips Hue Hub using the phone app for iOS and the included hardware makes it just as easy to install just about anywhere you want. I installed ours using one of the support stems from the wire rack above our washer/dryer drop in sink area. The sensor has a really strong magnet so it holds well to the wire rack and is barely noticeable as the color blends in nicely. The motion sensor is directly in front of the door so when you open the door the lights turn on which is awesome. I currently have it set for 2 minutes before it dims out to off. It's a great addition to our smart home. I understand it can get pricey especially using Philps or Lifx products, but you get to customize the lighting system in a way that fits your lifestyle. The best part is if you can stick a sticker, remove and install a lightbulb and plug in power adapters you 80% there. The rest is downloading the Philips app to setup your bulbs, hubs, dimmer switches, and motion sensors. It's cheaper and better than hiring an electrician or even wiring up a dimmer switch. I say that because if you decide to move, you can easily take your smart home with you. I'd recommend this product to anyone.

    A good but sometimes annoying sensor

    I recently set one of these inside, up above my side entrance of my house which leads through the kitchen. I have recessed lighting that are the hue bulbs, so I thought what a great place, for walking in with groceries or kids or whatnot, not having to worry about flipping on the lights. That part it does its job. The customizing part of the sensor is pretty nifty as well, where you can put it at super sensitive, so mid day, your dog or cat isn't going to walk into the room and turn on the lights, or you can make it super sensitive where a window shade moving in the wind can set them off. So there is a nice balance where you can set it to be easier for your needs. The annoying thing, well to save money on lights, if they get turned on when im not home, I don't want them to sit on for however long, so I have the timer to dim them to turn off set at the shortest possibility, which I believe is 30 seconds. So if I am cooking and what not at the counter and not really moving, my combination of low sensitivity means my lights go off constantly, and I have to stop what i'm doing and give the sensor a good ole wave. I've now know this, so before I cook, or spend a prolong time in the kitchen I will turn the sensor off and just tell my google home to keep the lights on, and problem solved. Overall it's a nice product, and I can't really knock it for how i've got it set up. The price isn't that bad and it has a nice array of customizing features that should make anyone who wants to use it happy.

    If you have a Phillips hue system this accessory is a must. It takes the convenience of automated lighting to the next level with some simple programming in the app. I have mine configured so that when it is dark in the house after 11pm and motion is detected select lights turn on to a night light setting to make navigation in the middle of the night easy without having to use voice controls or the phone controls. When no motion is detected after 10 minutes the lights turn back off. It comes with a discrete magnetic mount that you can attach to walls with just one screw, I actually attached mine to a curtain rod using only the magnetic force and it hasn’t budged. They claim battery will last 2 years I believe, I’ve had mine up for a month now no issues. I gave it 4/5 stars because it would be nice to see more options on the app side for dialing in the sensor more. It seems as though sometimes the lighting threshold changes day to day. Sometimes it will turn off lights while I’m the in the room watching tv with limited motion, it would be nice if it detected more small motion.

    I bought this to use with my Philips Flushmount ceiling light that I installed in my son's room. He has a tendency to leave the light on in his room. Installation was simple as it gives you the option of mounting it on the wall using an anchor or with the included magnetic, which is what I did. I attached the magnet directly to the wall plate, which was perfect as it covered the light switch. I used the app to set up the day and night settings, sensitivity of the sensor and I was up and running in a few minutes. I have the sensor set to turn off the lights after 2 minutes of inactivity and when motion is sensed during sleep hours, I have the light set to turn on at 35% brightness. The app is full featured and gives you plenty of options to customize. The only problem I had is I have another Hue bulb in a lamp that I use for his nightlight and during setup, I labelled the sensor for his room. With this setting, it would turn on both lights whenever someone entered his room. To fix this, I had to create a different location for the lamp so that it wouldn't come on with the sensor. There may be another way to fix the problem, but so far this has worked for my needs. I would definitely recommend this as a good addition to your Hue setup.

    Good sensitivity, wish more flexibility

    I was worrying about the sensitivity after reading some reviews, but had no problems with that- it notices you quickly even in a full dark. What I would like to see is some more flexible choices of what happens after the light is turned on. Currently, the options are either to turn it off (after certain time of no motion which you can control, starting from 1 minute and up) or leave it on. However, you need to go back to the application every time you want to switch between these two options (keep light on or turn off when no motion). That means that if, e.g., you had light set to turn off after one minute of no motion, it will keep going off when you simply sit in the bedroom reading, unless you change the setting in the application to keep it on. Which means you have to carry the phone all the time with you, or have to think beforehead. This is quite inconvenient, especially if you have kids who walk in and out of the room and stay inside random amount of time. I wonder if they could have some button right on the sensor that would switch between the two no-motion options (off or on). Or increase no-motion sensitivity to even higher levels (that should be down to sensing someone breezing though).

    I picked it up in impulse. New gadget. I like the idea of the kitchen light to immediately turn on when I walk out my bedroom at 4:30 am walking towards the garage in order to get to my car to go to work. It works good it was easy to set up on the network. The time settings are a little more complex but not terrible. I love and hate the timer. I like the fact that the kitchen light turns on as soon as I step out bedroom headed down the hall to kitchen. I dont have to touch any switches and most importantly i dont trip over any children toys on my way to the light switch. I have it set up for 5 minute. I walk out and leave for work knowing it will turn off light within 5 minutes. Well thats a great thing but it sucks during the day.... the sensor is configured to only turn on light when motion is detected within 4am-6:30am. But during the day it still turns off the light regardless of how I turn the light on. I can turn it manually by flipping the light switch, using Amazon alexa, or hue phone app. It still turns off the light after 5 minutes of not detecting motion in the hall way. It sucks!! I havent spent much time with it I just moved the bulb designation to the laundry room which it doesn't affect my day to day activities.

    I invested in Hue to help automate lighting while having a little fun with colors and themes under different circumstances. I recently installed more Hue lights in our master bathroom and walk-in closet. It ended up being more trouble than it was worth to wake up and open the app just to set the lighting so I could get ready in the morning. This solves that as you can set different scenes during certain times. It's not too bright in the morning, doesn't activate when it's daylight (There's a sensor to adjust this), and just the right amount when your calling it a night. The Hue App made it effortless to add to my Bridge and customizing the settings were a breeze. It's small size made it easy to mount and while it's noticeable, it's hardly an eye sore.

    I like the concept behind this - and maybe I'm just not programming it correctly. Let me be clear first - this does what it's supposed to. When it detects motion, it carries out specific commands that you program it to do like turning on lights between certain times. That said, the problem I've experienced with this particular item is when I'm in a particular mode that isn't default - such as a color setting for watching a movie - and I move, it automatically changes the color settings back to the default which is very annoying. Further, when my roommate is watching a movie with the lights off on purpose, it turns it back on. Maybe I'm just not using it for the right reasons, but wish there were ways to customize it or tell it to ignore the motion when you tell it to.

    I'm deep in the Hue ecosystem so when they came out with their own motion sensor i knew I had to try it, and I was pretty certain it would be good. I'm really happy with the settings included for this sensor, for instance: - Name - Which Room - Hours to be considered daytime - Brightness level for daytime hours - Hours to be considered night - Brightness level for night hours - Time limit or no action to be taken when motion stops - Daylight sensitivity (Won't trigger if the room is already lit by sunlight) This is a slider so you can dial it to your preference - Motion sensitivity (3 levels) The only thing I feel like this is missing has to do with Homekit, I would really like for my 'Goodnight' scene to toggle off the sensor. These work great in my kitchen where people pop in and out as well as my bedroom which only has lamps and I have to walk through to reach the master bath. However, I currently open the Hue app when I go to be to disable that one.

    Great for the utility room, bathroom(s), kitchen and bedroom(s), paired with Hue lights these are a real saver, do not have to ask Alexa to turn the light on and it goes out after a suitable time without motion, thus saving electric costs. Arm full of laundry, no worries the light goes on when you enter the pitch black utility room. Very pleased, have them in every bathroom, the master bedroom and the kitchen as well. The app allows you to use a very dimmed down nightlight effect (if you are using the Hue Color bulbs or the Hue White Ambience bulbs), eyeballs will not burn out at night when you stumble out of bed to run downstairs, cause you left the Pizza out in the kitchen. The cat is making smacking sounds down there after the thud of the box wakes you up when he knocked it on the floor.

    It seemed that someone was always leaving the light turned on in the back hallway of our home even though there's a switch at either end. Well, I solved that by installing one of these and a couple of Philips Hue White Ambiance R30 lights in my recessed ceiling light fixtures. Now, when someone steps into the hallway and before they can hit the switch, the light comes on... and one minute after they leave, it turns off. You can set the length of time the light stays on; it just happens that one minute is sufficient for my home. The light begins to dim first, before it shuts off completely, so you're not plunged into darkness instantly... and stays on as long as it detects motion. I have other areas of my home that this would be really useful for, so will probably be buying more before too long. To break the habit of reaching for the switch (light switch needs to be left in the 'on' position) I got some switch covers that just screw on (using the switch plate screws) to cover the switch and installed those. Worked like a charm.

    While the device functions well enough, the method Philips uses to notify you that there is motion is inadequate. When there is motion, a given light, that you tell it, will turn on -- for example a den light. The problem is that if you already have that light on, then you will not know the motion detector sensor was activated. If you have set the notification software up so that the light will turn off after a few minutes or so after motion was detected, the light, that you presumably had on for a reason, will turn off. Where this is a real problem is if you have that light set-up through Hue on a timer for security when you are not at home. The motion detector timer will turn off your light on the Hue timer. This device does not hook-up to Google Home as far as I can tell. It would be nice if it did and would give an audible alert through Home and a notice on a phone app

    I have to say, everyone in the family is happy about this little, white “box”. Who knew I’d ever need one? Basically, you put it where you want it, do a little setup and that’s it. It detects movement and turns on your Phillips Hue bulbs automatically. We have an outlet, in a closet, that we have converted to a pantry off the kitchen. Plug in an overhead lamp, insert Phillips Hue bulb, mount the Phillips Hue Motion Sensor, and viola, let there be light. Now, when someone simply opens the pantry door, the light automatically comes on. It will stay on as long as we are in the pantry. We have it set to go off after 1 minute of inactivity. You can adjust this time using the Hue app. I highly recommend this product, maybe more than most other Phillips Hue accessories. It works great for what we use it for.
