Type of review

the sensor is cool, it sees all the movements and, accordingly, records them all, even when the security mode is not turned on, get ready for a long event log if you put it in the corridor

  • Very small size compared to other similar devices, zigbee protocol
  • You will have to separately buy a platform for installation or stick it on your own adhesive tape, the battery is expensive, I hope it will last for a long time

Good and quality product, but there are flaws.

Since this device sends data to the gateway once every 2 minutes, it may not be very suitable for turning the light on and off.

  • Ease of setup, ease of installation, performs its functions normally.
  • You need a gateway to work, it sends data to the gateway every 2 minutes.

A good quality product, I rate this purchase perfectly.

Will not work without a gateway because ZigBee. There is no stand-leg in the standard package, so you should take care if there is no way to attach the keg itself somewhere. It will not work with Alice, but it will be displayed in Apple Home (of course, through the gateway).

  • The device itself has one function - to detect movement, it actually performs it. I have a Chinese version of all devices, and surprisingly, everything works relatively quickly, that is, it is quite possible to use it in everyday life. By "relatively fast" I mean the speed from detecting a person to turning on a light bulb in the order of a second (this is with xiaomi cloud automation). To do the same through the application is an average of 40 seconds. There is another important point - in automation, a discreteness of 1 minute, when setting it up, this can be bewildering.
  • This double-sided adhesive tape is, of course, wildly strong, but then tearing it off the surface is another task. It remains in pieces, you have to clean it up. I try not to use it whenever possible. Occasionally there are blunts for 5-7 seconds. This happens 1 time in 50 passes.

I didn’t glue it on Velcro, but simply put it in the right places so that the necessary sectors overlapped. When there are a lot of small items on a table or chest of drawers, the sensors are not conspicuous, this has its advantages. In general, I am satisfied with the sensors, they register me clearly - a notification immediately comes to the application. I hope that you will not have to check them "in action" for their intended purpose.

  • Very compact and lightweight motion sensor. Neat appearance. The setup is elementary, it connects to the hub without using the application in a few seconds, you only need an unfolded paper clip. More than adequate price, if you take on promotions with discounts. Good sensitivity - catches any movement both near and far. It uses a fairly common and inexpensive CR2032 battery.
  • Fastening only with Velcro from below, there is no thread so that you can fasten it to the bracket in the right place. Motion events are always sent, even when the room security mode is not enabled, that is, there is no feedback from the hub. Therefore, I think that the battery will drain much faster if you live in a room with these sensors all the time, and not arm them only for weekends or vacations. On the other hand, without fasteners, they are easy to assemble and put in a box where they will not give false positives until they are needed.

Quality is top notch, happy with everything.

I bought it to automate turning on / off the light in the corridor, since the switch is very inconvenient there. Bottom line: everything works as I wanted, there are no questions. The setup took, God forbid, a minute or two. I immediately bought a sensor, a lamp and a hub, automatically threw everything into Apple Home, set up a light bulb for this sensor and forgot what a switch is.

  • Clear operation. I chose a place, pasted it and forgot about it.
  • Aqara Hub is required for work. But honestly it is written everywhere.

The right product for me, there were no problems.

One package has been opened. There is a plastic circle pasted there, it was opened. But, everything works. I'm wondering where to put them on guard. )))) They write that it is inconvenient to fix. Yes, it is molded horizontally on the wall and cuts the movement. This is more for the entrance, as I understand it. If someone understood how to change the batteries, then he would say thanks for the answer, although not relevant yet.

  • Works fine! Detect motion.
  • Haven't found it yet. I don't know how to change the batteries in them. With climate sensors - it became clear, but these . In "Murzilka" there is no information about them. They are still loaded normally, but .

Good value for money, I recommend it.

Different pros: A very tiny sensor, it works for a long time without changing the power supply due to the use of the Zigbee protocol. Cons: The schedule of the activity period does not work well. Sometimes it works at night, despite the set schedule.

Not worth the money, I will not advise this product.

I bought it for integration with a smart home, in particular with a Smart Home from . When connected, everything is fine, but then the sensors begin to live their own lives, they work for half a day, then one falls off and does not work, then the other does not work and the first one turns on. In support, they unsubscribed that they are dealing with the problem, but for 2 months nothing has moved anywhere. If you take Xiaomi for integration into a smart home, then everything will probably work…

  • The Xiaomi application and automation through it work.
  • Sensors work intermittently. Poor integration with Smart Home from .

It was a reasonable purchase, will order more.

With its pros: Small, good sticky part, respond well to movement, it also reacts to a cat only if it jumped directly in front of the sensor. Got cons: They ordered 3 pieces, one marriage - it constantly falls off the gateway. Have to reconnect.

I'm very happy, it really is worth buying.

I am writing this review for those who want to use it with Alice. Connecting to Station 2 is easy, but you need to know what to do. The motion sensor must be entered into connection mode, in order to turn it on, you need to insert a paper clip into the hole and hold it until it flashes blue (I generally kept it while Alice was looking). Everything works fine, it catches far away, so I hid it so that it works only in the area that you need, and not in the whole apartment. Once connected, you can

  • Responds quickly, various modes. You can set the time period

Not perfect quality, there is a small defect.

As a simple notification that there is movement in the apartment - it's fine if you are ready for false positives. Not suitable for light control Has pros: 1. Very compact 2. The battery holds for a long time. I have 100% battery charge for 3 months and remained 3. Easily connects to open source solutions 4. Cheaper than many analogues Cons: For me, there are two: 1. False positives, 2-3 times a day. Still nothing during the day, but when the lights turn on at night, it surprises) 2. The…
