On the “sunrise” section, I simply don’t add any action since I want nothing to happen. Something like this: This could effectively works as a workaround! I'd say that's pretty accurate.

To connect the motion sensor to your Alexa device, make sure the Philips Hue Motion sensor is in pairing mode in the Hue app. Second, there isn't "a" temperature in any room in your house. Yeah when I discovered the motion sensor also included a lux sensor I thought, why not use it as an ambient light sensor? On the “sunset” section, I add an action to turn on the smart plug. It is also compatible with Wink Hub. (If you just want to round down to a whole number change the final line to round_truncate(officeTempF,0). When I moved my Hue motion sensor from the ceiling to the floor (for a test), it want from reporting a temperature which was "too high" to reporting "too low". If you google it, you´ll notice quite a few topics about the motion sensor beeing 2 degrees celsius wrong. Not only do you get the motion sensor itself, but also a light intensity sensor and a temperature sensor. In case you weren’t aware, the Hue Motion sensor should really be called the ‘Hue Motion, Ambient Light and Temperature sensor’, but I can see why that wouldn’t work well for marketing purposes, let alone on the front of the box. I mostly have been using my IOS devices to control my Hue system. Unlike, the Philips Hue Indoor Motion Sensor, this one is more affordable. The app's … The script gets the temperature from Hue, converts it to Fahrenheit, and rounds it down to two decimal points. Use motion sensor to may e increase level if someone enters area. Thus, you can configure the Wink Hub to turn on the A.C whenever the sensor detects very high temperature. The other one is only reporting illuminance and nothing else. Great Hue controller app. Frank_Schöttler. The Philips Hue motion sensors, which also use the Zigbee protocol, have a hidden temperature sensor in them. Thanks to Thomas of HUE Essentails, it all works perfect now. Zigbee connectivity to the Philips Hue Hub makes this sensor rock solid when it comes to reliability. So if the critical temperature is already reached at sunset, nothing will happen. Mostly for motion AND light level detection so that I can program a scene to flip the dimmable lights to a specific level based on ambient light level (or time of day even). In terms of hardware, all you need to do is open the box and remove the plastic tab to connect the battery. I hope this may help with your problem, I am using a similar setting not with a switch and ventilator, but with some IKEA motor blinds to prevent my apartment from overheating on warm days. Since it needs to be to “0” to trigger the action in the sunset period, it is stuck in this state until the temperature drops below 28. You can place it on the floor or a ledge, or you can attach it to a wall with the included mount. Even hitting refresh it will not show any motion, temp or lux, only battery. I purchased a Hue Motion Sensor ironically not to use as a motion sensor but for the light sensor to turn on the living room lights when it gets to dark. Hello, I am having problem configuring my hue motion temperature sensor with conditions. Good luck! All of them are two degrees off. I checked the rules generated and the problem seems to be caused by the fact that the “sensor state” variable is set to “1” during the “after sunrise” period, even if I configure no action. I use a “Phoscon” gateway and “Xiaomi” multisensor, a combination that allows to define a couple of rules even for the same purpose. A device that is switched on once remains switched on when another switch-on impulse comes. Just try to define another setting in addition (!) The outdoor sensor can be mounted on a flat wall or a corner. Ah yes that would explain it. It is exposed as a temp sensor in HomeKit but in the Hue app I can’t even find a reading. The lights do turn on before sunset, but on cloudy days it gets really dark inside the room way before the lights go on. Temperature is a bonus as we don’t have a remote temp sensor for upstairs yet. Once your motion sensor is set up with HomeKit, the temperature sensor functions just like any other, allowing it to work with scenes or automations, and can report the status via Siri on demand. It turns on the light when you enter a room and shuts it off when no motion is detected to keep your energy bills down. The problem is that when the temperature is 28 degrees and over before the sunset happens, the sunset action is never triggered. Why not just run a sunset routine? Peter. In order for you to have it discovered and added to the SmartThings hub, you need to reset the Motion Sensor so that it goes into pairing mode. I’m trying to work out a way to use the temperature sensor that’s hidden inside the Hue Motion Sensor to track temperature changes every 10 mins or so and record this in a google spreadsheet. Hello, Events will only sent on deploy (once) and if the temperature changes. The Philips Hue Outdoor Sensor allows you to add motion control to any Hue light, boosting safety and security with a welcoming ambience on your return home. Thanks for the reply!

Sit in on a shelf, mount it to a wall, or place it on a magnetic surface by using the included magnet. The system reacts the moment the limit is crossed, but not to existing conditions. That’s indeed pretty accurate. I’m not going to use temp for automations anyways so it isn’t a huge deal but I wished it was a bit more accurate for reference... As far as I know the only reason the motion sensor has a temperature sensor is that it came on the generic board hue used, it wasn't even exposed at the start just after people dug around and found it, then hue exposed it so people could see it. May 27, 2020, 11:52am #7. robert: Are you talking about the Philips Hue motion sensor? Totally not accurate. This could be a cool idea though to maintain an ambient light level though with the motion sensor. They all seem to report the temperature well within the accuracy of a degree. Same thing if I use an “hourly” condition instead of the “sunrise/sunset”. Plus, it is lighting fast to respond and update … Didn’t expect it to be truly accurate (it isn’t the primary use anyways) but wished it wasn’t that off. In the Eve app you can make automations based on lux and presto, it works like a charm. Try it out and please let me know if it works or not. The temperature sensor is a nice to have, but the light sensor provides the option to trigger lighting based on need rather than just time of day. I've got six motion sensors and I never noticed an accuracy problem. Yeah, that’s exactly what I mean. The difference is 0.1 deg celcius. All three will be available in HomeKit once the device is setup in the Hue app. Ok I am stuck in a choice hell Of my own making. Powered by Discourse, best viewed with JavaScript enabled, Hue sensor temperature - Problem with conditions. As for the temp, no calibration at all. But it is sitting there for 2 days now. My bad.

It also works with curl / wget / others broswers : You can test it by browsing the IP address For example, I want to turn on my hue smart plug (With a fan plugged in) at night when temperature is over 28 degrees, but do nothing during the day. I recall that somewhere in the Hue app (I think the Hue labs section) there was an example that it can give a notification or something when the temperature in the baby room was dropping too low. ToDo: Temperature of the motion-sensor. It's not great, but better than nothing for a rough guide. It will not change its state until a power off command is given. Looking for a motion sensor for a small ensuite bathroom. Cookies help us deliver our Services.

With some creative thinking there are a few great ways to use the sensor, here are just a few. However, this is exactly what the sensor does – it has motion detection, as expected, but it also comes with an ambient light sensor, which is the small black dot above the motion sensor … You can easily mount the device anywhere to detect motion. What I did: Configure a “greater than 28 degrees” with a sunset/sunrise condition on the temperature sensor page. Philips advertise it can be used for temp automations so it should be a bit accurate. as far as I can tell, this is not a bug, but is related to the way the sensor transmits its state and the way system logically connects the conditions. Use the Hue Temperature node to receive current (room) temperature in Celsius and Fahrenheit. Like most cheap sensors, it's probably internally consistent (i.e., it's always off by the same 2 degrees). I know Home Assistant can pull weather info and change status if reports it being cloudy. Hey Peter, Connect this Philips Hue motion sensor to your Philips Hue bridge (not included) to create a smart home lighting system. The Philips Hue motion sensors do not measure humidity.
