After adding the Hihome Plug-in Zigbee Gateway to your Hihome network, you can add various Zigbee sensors.
The PIR sensor can be easily mounted on any surface. It is recommended to clean the surface before using the 3M tape to mount the parts. Please note that the sensor is designed for indoor use and is not waterproof. So if you mount the sensor outside, make sure it does not get wet under any circumstances.
Any smart function or automation can be activated by the detection of motion. For example, turning off the light after a few minutes of no activity. Start an automation or send a notification to your phone when motion is detected.
Battery life is up to 5 years or 150,000 activations. Set a low battery alarm to alert you in time to replace the CR2 battery.
A Zigbee gateway is required.
What about ZigBee wireless? This is a wireless protocol that also works in the 2.4GHz band, like WiFi and Bluetooth, but it works at much lower data rates. The most important advantages of ZigBee wireless are
- Low power consumption
- Very robust network
- Up to 65,645 nodes
- Very easy to add or remove nodes from the network
- Supports 802.15.4 MAC/PHY
- Control channels 11 to 26 @2,400-2,483GHz, air interface speed 250Kbps
- Built-in DC-DC circuit for maximum power efficiency
- +10dBm maximum power.
- 63uA/MHz operating current consumption; 1.4 uA sleep current
