I’ve had this installed for a couple of weeks now, actually installed on the outside (protected from the elements) of the house by the front door as i use it for security control over night. The fact that it’s battery operated and can just about be installed anywhere is a big bonus and so far has generally performed very well. I used this to trigger several outside lights (yes there is a delay) over night, these lights are already connected either via a socket or the new light switch (which i think is a 5 star product) so it makes sense to connect them all together. The only reason for dropping a star is mainly with regards to the application on the mobile (still no tablet version) in that i can’t control the triggers from here, i have to go to the main web site to set these up. I’ve also noticed that for some reason it seems to state it’s triggered at least 3 times per hour which is incorrect (this is a software issue somewhere on the web site). Thinking of getting another one in the near future, but for now, i’m now installing their new light switches which have so far been fantastic.

I bought this with the door sensor thing to see. I bought this with the door sensor thing to see if it was any use. It all worked out of the box and i am going to try use them to turn some security lamps on if i can figure it out.

Great for knowing when the loo is free. I have fitted this in my office toilet so i can see when the loo is free rather than getting there to find it occupied. Very easy to set up, quite inconspicuous so doesn’t look out of place, and the mihome app works really well with it.

Brilliantly simply device to connect to existing energenie hub. Simple and easy to control with the app or web interface.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • great for knowing when the loo is free!
  • Small. Seems well built. Easy to configure.
  • Software lacking, can only track movement & notify – updated

Software lacking, can only track movement & notify – updated. The device works fine, i thought the software would allow me to switch on the lights when i walked through the front door. It appears only to have the power to track and alert, i am unable to use it to trigger item to switch on after a certain time. Updatesince writing this review, i have found out that it is possible to trigger items from the web site via a browser, so i have given it an additional star, but if that functionality would be added to the mobile app, then it would get 5.

Easy setup and works perfect. This is simply a great bit of kit, very easy to setup and install via the app of the pc, works great and for anyone wanting extra security at home for a good price then this is your item. I also got the plugs that all work together under the same app on the phonereally nice simple bit of kit.

I have this turning a lamp shade on when someone comes into the room during the hours of darkness. You need the mihome gateway and to make this worth buying a few other controllable mihome gadgets. Expensive if you are using it as a simple pir as there are cheaper options. If you are using it in a more sophisticate way then its still imho a bit expensive but you do need to compare the cost against similar systems doing the same thing, which are also imho expensive for what they are. I suspect as these bits of kit take off the price will come down.

Wow what a great addition to my home. I have used this little sensor for a very specific purpose but the possibilities are really endless. Having installed this using the 3m adhesive pads provided [it take 1 minute to insert the battery and stick it to the ceiling] i set it up in the mihome app and was immediately receiving push notifications to my iphone every time it was triggered. I even set it to only send me those notifications during the nightime. But best of all by going in to the mihome web browser i can set it to turn on a small light [using mihome adapter] so that when my 5 yr old boys get up in the night to go to the bathroom they can “aim” properly – but without the disruption of turning on the bright bathroom lights. No more puddles to clear up in the morning.
