Philips Hue Adds Motion Sensor To Control Lights Automatically

Philips has launched a sensor that lets you control the lights in your house through movement. The Philips Hue motion sensor is wireless and battery powered, with no need for complex installation. It links directly with the Philips Hue app and seamlessly integrates into the Philips Hue lighting system. You can connect up to 12 sensors for full coverage around the home.


A highly responsive and instant reaction ensures you won’t be fumbling around in the dark for a light switch. You can personalize the settings for a gentle light at night so you don’t get blinded by a bright light and wake up your family. The built-in daylight sensor causes the lights to stay off if it is already bright enough and only activates them if needed, helping you save energy.
