An easy way to automate
Motion sensors are a great way of expanding the capabilities of a smart home system. Don't want to pull up an app to turn something on or off? These sensors can turn devices and lights on or off when you simply walk by.
Versatility increases in the app. Pair the smart motion sensor with any C by GE Smart Bulbs, Smart Plugs, or Smart Switches and let your home work for you. You can set up a schedule for any motion sensor, like having it only work at night or during certain hours. On top of that, if you're looking to save on your electricity bill, you could have the sensor turn off a group of lights or a set of devices when no motion is detected for 5 minutes.

More details on the C by GE Wire-free Smart Motion Sensor
Overview: The Cync (formerly C by GE) Wire-Free Smart Motion Sensor can be used to control other Cync smart devices, such as Smart Bulbs, Smart Switches, Light Strips, and Smart Plugs. The sensor can be mounted anywhere, because there's no wiring to connect. The Smart Motion Sensor is powered by two "AAA" batteries (installed). It comes with a magnetic mount. Dimensions: Width 1.507", Height 2.425", Depth 1.43" Weight 2.2 ounces.
Motion Detection and Light Sensor: The Smart Motion Sensor uses a Passive Infrared (PIR) sensor to detect motion in a 105° arc, and within a range of approximately 20 feet. Motion detection can turn on the lights when you enter the room, or turn them off when the room is unoccupied for 5 minutes or more. This includes devices plugged into Cync Smart Plugs -- for example, the Sensor can control your desk fan automatically when you enter or leave the room. The sensor also has an ambient light detector that can trigger events when the ambient light level reaches a certain point. When paired with dimmable light bulbs, the sensor can keep the room's brightness at a constistent level by adjusting the lights according to the ambient light.
Programmable Detection: In the Cync app, you can turn off motion detection during certain times of the day when light is not needed. It can also be programmed to turn lights on dimly at night when you want to avoid waking someone, but need a little bit of light to navigate a dark hallway or bedroom.
Installation: The Smart Motion Sensor can be placed vertically on a level surface, such as a shelf or tabletop. You can also wall-mount or ceiling-mount it using the included magnetic mount. The magnet will attach to the sensor's rounded top and rear panels, or flat bottom panel, giving you lots of flexibility in mounting the sensor. The sensor can be installed vertically or horizontally. Ideally, the Motion Sensor should be installed between 66" and 78" above the floor.
Setup: Once you have installed the motion sensor, it will need to be configured into your Cync home system. After adding the sensor to the Cync app, you will need to group it with the other Cync devices you want to control with the motion detection in the same room/space. The sensor can be used to control Cync Smart Bulbs, Smart Plugs, and Smart Switches.
Cync App: The Cync app puts control of your home's lighting and connected devices into the palm of your hand. On your iOS or Android smartphone or tablet, you can turn lights on/off, dim/brighten, or adjust color settings (requires dimmable and/or color changing bulbs). You can also create custom lighting scenes, such as Study Time, Movie/TV watching, Romantic Dinner, etc. Multiple devices can be grouped together so they can all be controlled with a single touch. Schedules based on your routine can be created, so your lights or plugged in devices turn on or off at a specific time. Control can be shared with other members of your household, or whomever you choose. The Cync app is compatible with devices running iOS 14.0 or later, and Android devices with OS 8.0 and up.
Bluetooth: The Smart Sensor controls compatible devices via Bluetooth. Up to 50 Cync devices can be controlled by the sensor in the same location. It does not work with any other brands.
Battery: The Wire-Free Smart Motion Sensor is powered by two "AAA" alkaline batteries. The estimated battery life is approximately 2 years. The batteries can be easily user-replaced by removing the rear panel.
