Aqara Motion Sensor P1


With this sensor from Aqara you can detect movement. Handy if, for example, you want to automatically switch on a lamp in the hall. Because it has a built-in lux meter, you can use it directly in your automation by specifying that the lamp may only be switched on when it is dark.

The battery of this sensor lasts 5 years because it contains 2 CR2450 batteries. These are supplied with the sensor.

The sensor is made of white plastic and is very small with its size: 4.2x3.2 cm (round x h). A bracket is included to aim the sensor at the correct angle. You can attach this with 2 double-sided stickers.

Via the configuration you can set the sensitivity, detection time and switch the LED on or off.

It is for sale for 25 euros via our partner or via Aliexpress.

Finally, we would like to mention that the support is still moderate. There is still work to be done.
