Frequently asked question

What's the battery life on this? Does the amount of traffic affect how long the battery last?

Pretty much the shelf life of the battery. It's been more than three years since I bought the 1st gen and it's working just fine to trigger a garage and entry hall - and it has been well over 110 in that area for much of this past summer. I've not pulled the patent applications nor reverse engineered it but the circuit… see more Pretty much the shelf life of the battery. It's been more than three years since I bought the 1st gen and it's working just fine to trigger a garage and entry hall - and it has been well over 110 in that area for much of this past summer. I've not pulled the patent applications nor reverse engineered it but the circuit stays low (the least amount of power consumed) during the period consisting of daylight or other room lights on. I my case I'd bet that the sensor is consuming current for six hours a day for nearly 1,000 days.

What is the minimum amount of time after leaving the room before the lights turn off?

There’s a setting in the app that says “when there is no motion after ___ minutes” the quickest setting is 1 minute. Then from there 2,3,5,7,10, and increments up to 60.

What's the difference between this one(473389) and the other one(464602)?

I have four Hue sensors– two in black boxes, two in blue boxes. The sensors in black boxes are not HomeKit compatible. The sensors in the blue boxes are. I don't know how that lines up with the product numbers.

Is there a way to use this for security? will it notify you remotely or ifttt when it senses motion?

Yes. I have mine pointed at my front door. Whenever it senses movement and I am not home (ie: my cell phone isn’t home) I get an alert on my phone. While it works for security, I also use it to know when maintenance is in my apartment, and it also triggers turning on the main lights. It’s all setup through iOS Home, so… see more Yes.

    Great quality Motion sensor

    I have several motion sensors in my home and I have to say this one tops them all. The quality of the construction and the precision in the detection make this product a 10. The price is a bit high but its quality makes it worth it.

    works great

    I purchased these for our basement stairs, unfortunately the lights above the stairs only have a single switch at the top of the staircase, fortunately I found these with motion detector I mounted the motion detector at the bottom facing upwards it triggers when you are at the top, and on the first stair at the bottom making lighting up the stairs hands free, will be adding more

    White. but you cannot set the white temperature.

    It’s exactly what it says, but for some reason i thought i could set the white balance. Change it from amber, soft, Utility ect, across the white spectrum, like you can with the color bulbs, just a white only version &lt,(that didn’t come out good). Motion sensor set up easily. Using this in a Laundry room as an ‘auto on’ for a area that only has a pull chain fixture, just wish it weren’t such a soft white. *This review is legit but i read how non PC it could be taken as.

    Great, Dependable Motion Sensor with Long Battery Life

    These are more expensive, but really great dependable motion sensors. I am able to pair them directly with my Hubitat hub in my one house, but use with HomeKit and the Hue Hub in another. In Hubitat I have great control over the level of motion detection and can update the firmware directly in the hub. Motion detection is super reliable, and with the AAA batteries, they last soooooo much longer than other motion detectors. I have had one for over a year and have not yet had to change the batteries. Definitely recommend.

    Sensor works great... Hue programming is terrible... Alexa support is a dysfunctional mess.

    So, the motion sensor works fine. It seems to sense motion pretty well. It’s easy to install. We just stuck the magnetic base to a magnetic surface in a convenient spot and popped the magnetic sensor onto it. Easy peasy, right?

    Well, not exactly. The Hue app has been a headache from day one. The lights just don’t behave like they should with the motion sensor. All I wanted was a light that shifted in temperature throughout the day to come on when the sensor was triggered, but I wanted the default state to be a soft color, or color changing (using the Hue Lightstrip Plus). Okay, that sounds really complicated, but using Hue Lab Formulas it shouldn’t have been, at all. Unfortunately the Hue Lab Formula for changing light temperature (Feel better with light) only works with the Motion Sensor if the light is OFF. What kind of weird rule is that? So if I wanted my pretty colorful lights to be OFF all the time, it might have worked great. But I don’t. So that’s just not going to work for me. The default behavior in the Hue App only gives two options, one for day, and one for night. The Hue Labs Formula ‘Third time’s a charm’ adds ONE single extra option. That’s it. ONE. None of these motion sensor triggers will revert back to a previous scene. You get off, static scene color, or nothing. Fortunately there’s also a Formula for that (No motion, no fuss), so that’s not the worst part. At this point, I still could have tolerated all the hoops I had to jump through to get ALMOST functional mood lighting. But no, that was just a pipe dream, because no matter how I set up the sensor, using default behavior or the ‘Third time’s a charm’ formula, any changing color scene overrides whatever white color it changed to, and it will NOT revert back no matter how much you wave your arms. It has to completely time out (including the 30 second dimming feature that CANNOT BE DISABLED–have been waiting six months to get a response from Hue about that), before it will go back to white. This is the most irritating and frustrating thing I have ever experienced. There were lots of third party apps that claimed to have better control over it, and I think I tried most of them, even a couple more than once, but all of them failed on the same level, and ultimately you end up having to pay for features that Hue should be offering with their product. Ugh, forget it. I should have sent it back but…

    Enter Alexa. Supposedly this little thing will work with Alexa. With the new and improved routines, the motion sensor is a trigger baked right in to the Hue Alexa skill. The routines gave me ultimate control over what happened to my lights. HUZZAH!

    Except it didn’t. Every time I tried to save a routine using the motion sensor as a trigger, I got the same error. ‘There was a problem creating this Routine.’ I went round and round with Amazon help, and so far, I’m right back where I started. I talked to four different people at Amazon, NONE Of which were any help (just wait, yet another one will respond trying to help me, and ultimately link me to this page: amzn.to/2TVJPW1 because obviously I haven’t seen that five million times already). So even though it says it’s supported by Alexa, IT’S JUST NOT. Oh, wait, no, it kind of is. See, the routines for NO MOTION… those work. Yup. They work great. I can create a routine and it saves and works flawlessly. So, Alexa works with the motion sensor and control my lights as long as no one ever moves. They work just fine. But using it as an actual motion sensor with any given action as a result of sensing motion? Yeah, good luck on that. I tried every possible setting. There is no way to use motion as a trigger in Alexa, and that’s literally the only way Alexa can even support it. It MIGHT work if you have a 3rd gen Echo (I don’t have one, so I honestly couldn’t say for sure if it does or not) and connect the sensor to that instead of the Hue bridge, but we can’t all just go out and buy new Echos to update our setup just to accommodate lazy programming. I can create other routines without it, so I know for a fact I don’t need one.

    Oh, and support for Alexa smart home functionality is basically non-existent. They only have Echo Device support. NOTHING specific to the Alexa app or smart home features, only help with the physical Echo device, which has nothing to do with Alexa routines or Hue Motion Sensor triggers. As far as I can tell, that support/help department doesn’t even exist.

    So I still have a motion detector that sort of works if you either love or really hate boring shades of white, but if you want anything out of the super ordinary, get something different. This one is not going to get the job done. At least not until Alexa can get it together enough to figure out how ACTUAL device support works or even addresses the plethora of bad reviews on the Hue skill.

    Actually, that’s a good idea. Go read the Hue skill reviews if you want to use Hue with Alexa. They are… illuminating.

    Easy to install/use

    The motion detector was easy to install and integrate with my existing Hue set-up. My system is tied in with Home Assistant running on a Raspberry Pi and everything has been working flawlessly for over a year (no battery replacement yet).
