Overview

Our take on the Samsung SmartThings Motion Sensor

The SmartThings Motion Sensor is the powerful wireless watchdog of your home automation system. When you're away from home or are asleep, the motion sensor will immediately alert you on your phone if there's movement. It communicates through the SmartThings hub, the brain of your customizable SmartThings home automation system. You can add as many compatible devices and sensors as you want, and control them all using the SmartThings Mobile app (Apple®/Android™/Windows®).

It works around your lifestyle

Beyond just home protection, the motion sensor is great for everyday life too. Tie it into your smart thermostat and have your heating and cooling system respond to you coming and going. Use it to toggle lights on and off based on movement in a room. With the SmartThings outlet, you can have connected appliances automatically turn on when you get out of bed. Making the morning coffee has never been easier.

Features

Overview: The Samsung SmartThings Motion Sensor lets you know when movement is detected in your home, and can trigger a response to that movement. Responses can range from turning lights on or off, triggering sirens or other electronics to turn on. Your smartphone will also receive an instant notification when unexpected motion is detected. The sensor has a wide field of view of 120°, and a detection range of 15-20 feet. It can be placed on a table or shelf, or wall mounted using the included adhesive or screws. The Motion Sensor is powered by a CR2450 battery (installed). The sensor's dimensions are 2.047" x 2.146" x 0.996", and it weighs 1.3 ounces.

Note: The SmartThings Motion Sensor requires the SmartThings Hub.

SmartThings Monitoring System: The SmartThings Home Monitoring system contains several sensors and this central monitoring hub to help you make sure your home is safe. Available SmartThings sensors include this Motion Sensor, a Multipurpose Sensor, a Smart Outlet, Arrival Sensor, and a Water Leak Sensor. Numerous devices (locks, thermostats, wireless music systems, cameras, lightbulbs, etc.) from Samsung and other manufacturers can be controlled through the SmartThings system. The SmartThings monitoring system is controlled via Wi-Fi and the SmartThings Mobile app for your smartphone or tablet. No contracts or monthly fees are required to monitor your home with the SmartThings system.

SmartThings Mobile App: The SmartThings Mobile app for your smartphone or tablet lets you easily control, monitor, and secure your home from virtually anywhere in the world. The app is available from the Apple App Store for iOS devices running version 7.0 or later, from Google Play for Android devices (version varies with device), and from the Microsoft Store for Windows mobile devices.

Why did you buy this?

Already have a Home Automation project on my Home and mostly with SmartThings Hub and devices. [ Miguel  Mar 12, 2018 ]
Good quality. Reliable. [ Nomer  Nov 21, 2017 ]
I haven't tried any of these security products yet but I just relied on the fact that the brand has good reputation plus this product is being sold by Crutchfield. [ Nomer  Aug 23, 2017 ]
Have now installed Samsung SmartThings in both of my homes. Works well, can stay informed of entry, temperature, leaks and motion in my homes with no monthly fees. Almost never get false alarms. If I do, it's easy to get a live video stream. Or later go back to see a 2 minute video of the event. Next, I am going to add smoke and CO2 detectors. Batteries last almost one year. Good Product. Easy to install. [ M  May 06, 2017 ]
I already have one and need another one. [ Omar  Jan 29, 2017 ]
Was given a smart hub for my birthday. [ Wayne  Mar 15, 2016 ]
I have a SmartThings hub and need compatible motion sensors for a home automation project. I have not used them before and am relying on positive user reviews in making this purchase. [ Thomas  Feb 17, 2016 ]
