The need for outside lighting increases when autumn comes around and the days start getting shorter. But where do you even begin? The answer: Philips Hue motion sensors. The convenience of having lights turn on automatically when you get home brings added safety for you and your guests. Not only that, potential burglars will be put off, making them think twice before attempting to break in. With a Hue motion sensor, the dark is a much safer place.
Smart home comfort: The indoor sensor
The compact, battery-powered indoor motion sensor from Philips Hue makes retrofitting automated lighting a breeze. All you need to do is couple it with your desired lights via an app, align precisely - and the lights react to movement in less than 0.5 seconds. The light is also adapted to the lighting conditions in the room thanks to its integrated daylight sensor. The indoor sensor can be used for kitchen lights, hallway lights, or for burglary protection.
The Philips Hue motion sensor can easily integrate into your smart home system, with selected indoor and outdoor lights that can be controlled via the sensor. For example, the motion detectors can light areas such as the front entrance of the property and the hallway. With your house lit up and looking busy, you will deter burglars from even thinking about breaking in.
Why do you need a separate Philips Hue motion sensor?
A separate Philips Hue Outdoor motion detector offers several advantages over sensors built into the light and enables monitoring tailored to the individual property. That's why there are no Philips Hue outdoor lights with motion sensors. Each Philips Hue outdoor light can communicate with the separate motion detector.
The advantages of this include:
Application-oriented positioning of the motion detector separately from the light, e.g., on the corner of or at the beginning of the driveway
Several motion detectors can address the same light so that comprehensive surveillance is possible
If the separate motion detector or the light is defective, only one component needs to be replaced
The Philips Hue Outdoor motion detector does not require an additional power connection
Ensuring your guests always feel welcome
With the Philips Hue motion sensor, not only will you always feel welcome in your own home, your guests will too. You can specify individually which lights you want to activate and how! This means you can select individual lights and create a one-of-a-kind light show that welcomes guests when they arrive at your home.
Battery-powered sensors can be installed anywhere in or around the home, including on straight walls or corners. The integrated daylight sensor ensures that the coupled indoor and outdoor lights only switch on when there is no longer enough daylight, thus preventing unnecessary power consumption.
The Philips Hue Outdoor Motion Sensor has been specifically designed for outdoor use and extensively tested to ensure long-lasting performance. It is equipped with protection class IP54 and protects against splash water from all directions. This means that rain and other weather conditions cannot harm it.
In order to control your lighting, including the sensor via smartphone and tablet with the Philips Hue app, everything must be connected with a bridge. As soon as all components are integrated into the Hue system, you can use other control options, such as a dimmer switch or voice control, depending on your preference.
