Automatically turn on the lights you want, outdoor and indoor. The outdoor sensor turns on your Philips Hue lights automatically when somebody passes by. By connecting the sensor to your bridge via the Philips Hue app, you can choose which lights go on, even inside your house. Also choose the scene or light setting that should be triggered. The integrated dusk-to-dawn sensor ensures your lights only switch on when it is actually dark outside helping you to conserve energy.
I bought this sensor and I followed the installation instructions but cannot find it In my “Accessory Setup” no matter how many times I press the setup button in the back of it. The LED keeps blinking but it doesn’t show up. I updated the Hue app and was excited about it but I’m afraid I’m going to return it.
First, documentation is surprisingly lacking. Nothing about how to change batteries. Nothing about the various colors the detector sensor produces. After I set it up I had it in the house for a bit and would see it glow red and green. Second, not sure why the wall mount does not result in a flush mount against the wall (see picture)? I know sometimes things are done for a reason but I can't think of why someone would intentionally design it this way. Lastly, if you live in a typical town setting (i.e. not rural) with a sidewalk not far from your front door, you will have to rig this somehow if you don't want it going off when someone walks by your house. Although this is a cool technological product, it is not as advanced of a sensor as some of the old school garage spot light sensors (like RAB) which give you blinders and a swivel type mount to control the range. I am going to try to angle it down but afraid it will look silly so might try electrical tape at the top of the sensor. Lastly, the set screw was hard for me to tighten given there was molding about 1-2" below the sensor. I didn't look at the wall mount closely and didn't want to take it back off once I got the set screw tightened but it seems to me that the set screw is not hitting on a flat surface because as I tightened it the sensor would start to twist. From the picture on their site it appears to have a slight curve and I think that is the problem. I was using a level on top as I was tightening the set screw and it was a bugger to get it tight and still level.
I have two of these, one at the front and one at the back of the house to turn on internal lights in case of trespassers. The one at the front of the house triggers when people or cars pass on the road 8-10m away. Reducing the sensitivity to minimum made no difference. No issues with the one at the back because there's no traffic, but the one at the front is useless, the lights come on/off all night long, and every time they go on/off the nest doorbell detects the change and sends a notification, so everything becomes useless.
This is a dumb idea. Just add the sensor to the outdoor lighting fixtures. Who wants to run around changing batteries on these? Plus just another thing to mount on the outside of the house. Can't believe this was over looked. Great products otherwise.
I bought it since one week and I have a issue by configuring Day and Night Beahviour on the Philips HUE App (Android version but also test from iphone, same issue) In the section of the sensor configuration, you have the choice to add day and night behaviour and configuring the time beetween. For me the time is never saved or at least it is not shown properly, so you don't know if it was really applied or not ? Sometimes it is blank and sometime you can see only a "-" instead. So I have no idea if I have configured a range or not... Is it a know issue ? Otherwise the product seems very good !
i allready have 2 other outdoor sensors which worked great ... now since all is updated and wanted a 3th one it can not be addet to a room ... sensor is conectet but i can not change the name of the sensor or add it to a room or make any changes. tried also with ios and with android ... and changed the sensor in the shop to a new one ... but same results ... allway after selecting a room the app stokes and need to be closed and opend again ... but allways the same problem
