Frequently asked question

How creepy does this thing look in person, I can’t get past the eye of Sauron vibe?

It doesn't look like that IRL.

Can this be used outside, or only inside?

It’s not weatherproof, can’t be exposed to rain or sun , make sure it’s communicating with your home hub

So do you need anything else to go along with this or can I just add it to my Home app on my iPhone?

You can add it to the HomeKit - no issues there. However, I ended up returning this device as it did not meet expectations: 1. HomeKit integration was OK - it is HomeKit compatible, however Automation to other (Philips) Hue light bulbs did not work, though they are on HomeKit as well, so it's kind of useless unless yo… see more You can add it to the HomeKit - no issues there. However, I ended up returning this device as it did not meet expectations: 1. HomeKit integration was OK - it is HomeKit compatible, however Automation to other (Philips) Hue light bulbs did not work, though they are on HomeKit as well, so it's kind of useless unless you buy standalone HomeKit bulbs 2. For the price point, I was expecting something better and practically seamless. It was a headache and somewhat of a nightmare to use the detected motion with automation. 3. I think the primary method of operation is Bluetooth, which is horrible. This means, if you are not at home (with your phone), the motion sensors would not be able to communicate with your Home Hub and wouldn't be able to work. TL,DR - these are frustrating, and not worth the $60 price tag. it looks cool, but the Hue hub is a much better option, especially if you already own Hue bulbs. :)

How long does the battery last?

the battery only lasted 2 months. Installed 7/6/21, battery dead 9/9/21
