Philips introduces Hue Motion Sensor

Phillips is adding a motion sensor to provide more automated control options for its line of Hue bulbs (see our recent review for the White Ambience Starter Kit) and lightstrips. The battery-powered Hue Motion Sensor connects to a Hue Bridge and is wireless, so it can be placed anywhere. When activated, the sensor will turn lights on when a user enters a room, shut them off when they leave, and perform other set actions like turning lights on or off depending on the level of daylight and activating different lighting configurations at different times of day. One bridge can handle up to 12 motion sensors, each of which has a range of about 16 feet. The Hue Motion Sensor will cost $40 and be available on the Philips Hue website alongside the new Ambiance A19 bulbs starting in October.
