Adjustable Sensitivity (Distance)

Adjustable Sensitivity (Distance)

Three sensitivity modes (high, medium, and low), refer to the distance the sensor will be triggered from, which can help to reduce false alarms and make installation more flexible.

Configurable Detection Timeout

Configurable Detection Timeout

The timeout can be configured from 1 to 200 seconds in the Aqara Home app, confirmed by pressing the device button, and the P1 won't be stuck for one minute.*

Built-in Light Sensor

Motion Sensor P1 5year battery life

The Motion Sensor P1 now can reach an amazing record five-year battery life and will have an acceptable battery life even in the case of extra-low temperatures or lightning-fast detection timeouts.

*5-year battery life can be achieved with LED indication function turned off and with detection timeout not less than 30 seconds

Detect Intruders and Get Notifications Immediately

By setting the Aqara Home Alert System, the Motion Sensor P1 may become a reliable security device:

Configure away mode in the app, and enjoy constant monitoring, local sound and light alarms, and cloud notifications in case motion is detected. Or, use it in HomeKit or other supported systems for the same purpose.

Just Place it Anywhere You Like

No tools are required for installation. With the included sensor stand and sticker, you can set the motion sensor wherever you want.

Sense Your Movement, and Have Perfect Lighting All the Time

In case the detector was triggered, you will be able to check if there is any danger and disarm it easily. Unlike the traditional alarms, you can use both the Aqara Home app or other Aqara devices to do it.

IF Motion is detected and brightness is below 30 lux (can be configured in the app)

THEN Turn on the light

*To use this feature, an Aqara Zigbee 3.0 hub and controller are required.

Automation 1:
Fully automated lighting control

IF A motion in darkness is detected

THEN Trigger the smart wall switch to automatically turn on the light

IF No motion is detected for a long time

THEN Trigger the smart switch to automatically turn off the light
