Philips Hue Motion Sensors

Philips recently released a new product that totally changed the way I use my smart home (apartment)!  It's a motion sensor and it's brilliant.  I have put one right at the front door of my apartment and also one that controls the hallway and stairs.  It's a magical thing now, because as soon as I step through the front door or into the hallway, the lights flick on automatically.  I've had this setup for about a month now but it still surprises me (in a good way) when the lights turn on.  It's like having your own personal light butler.

The motion sensor works best in trafficked areas of the home, where the lights can turn on and off without anyone really caring.  I didn't install one in my bedroom or living room because, for example, if I was watching a movie or something, and staying really still, then got up to get popcorn.  The lights would then turn on.  Not cool.  But in the hallway, laundry room, closet, etc, these little guys would be great.

They're a bit expensive at $40 each, so the price racks up quickly.  But they require no wires to run and Philips says the battery should last at least a 2 years.  They can even sense daylight, so if there's enough light in the room already, the motion sensor won't trigger the lights....AMAZING!

Click here to check out this product.  And here to get the startup pack, which is required to run these motion sensors.  You'll love it in your home!  I know I do.
