What can I do with the Hive motion sensor?
Monitor your home on your smartphone wherever you are. Get alerts on your smartphone when the infrared sensor detects movement, and you can even turn your notifications off when you’re at home. Easy to set up using the adhesive strip, just connect it to your Hive Hub and look after your home while you’re out and about.

What you’ll need to get the Hive motion sensor 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 device
• 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 control your home with Hive

Does it cover the whole house?

Asked by: JOhnB
It covers the localised area in which it is placed. Remember you need to also have a HIVE HUB for it to work

What motion  sensor  turns the light on

Asked by: Andrew
We have many sensors that can achieve this such as, LightwaveRF LW107WH PIR Switch White Code: N14LL Passive Infrared control switch allows you to delay the switching on of LightwaveRF devices Connect to devices such as dimmer switches or power sockets Settable delay period turns devices off after no motion is detected saving you energy and money
