HomeKit motion sensors
When it comes to smart home devices, saying “Hey, Siri” and turning them on is great. However, if you want to make things look even smarter, you need a motion sensor. These sensors allow you to simply turn things on by going into a room. If this appeals to you, then these are the best HomeKit enabled motion sensors you can buy today.
No Philips Hue configuration is complete without the motion sensor, which simply activates your Hue bulbs when motion is detected. It’s a glorious way to bypass Siri, and the lights will go out when you leave the room (or stop the movement for longer periods).

It detects movement, measures the temperature and intensity of light, and has an accelerometer to detect whether or not someone is trying to change it.

Find the perfect motion detector for you and HomeKit
A smart motion sensor bypasses the need to ask Siri to light up. It’s perfect for saving energy when you come home, or go up and down stairs with your hands full.
We love Philips Hue Motion Sensor because of how versatile, reliable and well designed it is. By simply switching on the Hue bulbs when motion is detected, you can quickly understand what is happening without the need for your phone in your hand.
