Hive Motion Sensor

Our Hive Motion Sensors let you know everything’s okay back home so you can relax wherever you are. Check if there’s been motion at home and get notifications the moment anything happens. Connect it with other Hive devices for even smarter control of your home. Like turning on a hall light when someone walks past.

Combine them with Hive HomeShield, our smart alarm system, to make your home even more secure.
