What can the Hive Motion Sensor do?
The clever wireless sensor sends an alert to your smartphone if movement is detected in your home, using the improved passive infrared technology. It is easy to install – either place it on a surface, or simply use the self-adhesive tabs to attach it to a wall. The modified design means improved mounting, as it will now fit more tightly into corners. There is a slide and release case to change the battery and a light sensor built-in. The sensor requires a single CR123A lithium battery, and the battery life has been improved to two years with normal use.

What does the Hive app allow me to do?
Wirelessly connect your sensor to your Hive Hub and you have total control on your sensors at your fingertips via the Hive app. From the app you can turn notifications on and off, and choose how to receive those notifications, whether it be email, push notification or both. You can check the status of your motion sensor at any time, to check whether it is detecting motion or not. You can schedule up to six notification timeslots a day, so you can turn notifications off when you know you’ll be at home. Hive recipes allow you to set triggers and actions for any Hive Sensors, Hive Active Plugs or Hive Active Lights that you have helping to make your home work for you.

What do I need to get the Hive Motion Sensor up and running?
• The Hive Hub
• For the Hive app you’ll need an Apple iPhone or iPad (iOS 7 or later), a device running Android (min 4.0.3) or a Windows desktop computer running the Hive web application
• Laptop or tablet with internet access and an up-to-date web browser (we recommend minimum: Internet Explorer 10 or the latest versions of Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari)
• Hive is a British Gas innovation, but you don’t need to be a British Gas customer to buy the Hive products
