    The sensor is awesome. I have successfully caught three teenage girls attempting to enter the property to have relations with my teenage sons. Busted them cold, thank you Hue. This product has single handily prevented at least one teenage pregnancy. The sensor works very efficiently and is wonderful add on to the hue light bulbs. Together they light our entire courtyard and was very simple to set up. I look forward to adding more Hue products in the future. My kids future depends on them. I would definitely recommend this item if you love your kids and wish to prevent teenage pregnancy.

    Philips Hue has a great ecosystem of products that are unmatched. This sensor is no different. It was very easy to pair using the Hue app, and various mounting solutions to use when installing. The range was impressive. It has a very wide 160° range of detection, that works great with my larger patio. HomeKit integration not only offer motion sensor activated automations, but provides light and temperature info. The only thing holding this back is the Apple HomeKit app itself, but I won’t be taking any points away from Philips Hue because of Apple’s app.

    I was waiting for outdoor motion sensors for a while and I have been using indoor sensors which work pretty well. So I decided to buy an outdoor sensor. Pretty sturdy, well made and does the job it supposes to do. I believe it covers bigger range compare to indoor sensors. I hope it comes as white version as well and bit cheaper in future.

    I have three of these installed and I plan to buy 4 more. They are aesthetically pleasing and the work very well. I was surprised at the distance it triggers. I have one installed over the walkway to the front door and it activates at around 15-20 feet. Using the Hue app accessory setup I have these turn on lights, much like the older style motion sensor lights, but with Samsung SmartThings integration I get a notification when a sensor turns on a light.

    EZ Setup and Installation

    Took a few minutes to figure out the mounting bracket, but only one screw was necessary to hold it to the door frame. Finding it with the HUE app was very fast. Had to re-set the defaults to make it work properly, but now controls 9 lights when it sees activity then turns off three minutes later. Does what the door bell activity sensor couldn't. Bought a second one for my driveway security lights. Recommend!

    Great Outdoor Motion Sensor for HomeKit

    This motion sensor didnt seem worth the price, but the quality and speed to notify makes it a good investment to add to your home automation network. I use it with homekit and its a great asset for motion detection and using it as a trigger. It also has a built in thermometer for outdoor temperature which is nice when you want a more accurate idea of the temperature outside.

    I put one of these out at the end of my driveway so I would know if anyone pulled in. It is programmed to turn on various lights as well as set specific colors on lights to indicate that it has been tripped. From outside it looks like people are home and have turned on lights (weather we are or not) inside it gives us a heads up to check the cameras.

    Hue motion sensors are awesome and easy to setup. I already had two indoor ones for my hallways. When this came out I quickly jumped on one for my garage. I couldn't be more impressed. It picks up movement of almost the entire two car garage in complete darkness. With this device I don't need to worry how cold or hot it gets. It just works.

    This is great. It works great. You can turn off and on using Hue app. Easily mounts to any wall. You can also set it to turn on more than one area. I use to turn on out side lights and my bedroom lights. To alert me someone is at back door. I will buy more of them.

    USe this to turn on my front lights when I get home. At first it was mounted above my doorway and found it to be sensitive enough to pick up traffic on the street 50 feet away if not more. If you are in a high traffic area this may not work well for you.

    After using the indoor sensors for years now, I was excited to see that Hue now had the outdoor version. Does everything that it is supposed to and allows me to control everything away from home. Easy to install and good range.

    I installed this on my porch, but had installed it too low at about knee level & didn't work as well, I sent a DM to Hue support & they suggested to raise it, so I did & works great. No more walking outside to the dark or coming home to a dark porch.

    Bought to use above a kitchen door entrance that doesn’t get a ton of light. I’m going to install a couple Hue smart bulbs in the outdoor fixture and use the motion sensor to trigger them when you approach the door.

    This sensor works well and you can set it up to turn on indoor and outdoor lights. You can have the lights stay on for a specified time and then revert to their original state. I highly recommend this sensor.

    I was using an interior motion detector for my exterior HUE lights. It work ok but had a small range. This device is expressly designed to be weather safe and a larger sensor range. Works great.

    I bought this to turn on my exterior Hue lighting setup to provide light for guests outside of my lighting schedule and to scare off anyone who is approaching my home for other reasons.

    Great outdoor motion sensor. Lots of great automation available with this and my Hue setup. Bonus features on the motion sensor is that they also double as a temperature sensor!

    The unit mounts easily. It is battery powered (2 year life) which is a necessity. The app offers many options to control the sensitivity of the sensor. It operates as described.
