Hive Pet Friendly Motion Sensor
Our Pet Friendly Motion Sensor is smart enough to tell the difference between people and pets. It monitors your home and alerts you when there’s movement – but it won’t be triggered by pets under 36kg.

No more false alarms
If you have dogs or cats that roam your home, our Pet Friendly Motion Sensor is perfect. It means they can move around freely without ever setting it off.
Always in the know
The moment your smart motion sensor detects activity, it sends a notification to your smartphone, tablet or Apple Watch.
Turn lights on automatically
Connect your sensor with a Hive Light or Plug using Hive Actions. So the moment you – but not your pets – step into your hallway, the bulbs and plugs can turn on automatically.
Travel back in time
Been away for a couple of days? You can see when motion has been detected, going back seven days.

We’ve partnered with some of your favourite smart home brands and you can easily connect our sensors to Philips Hue Lights.Discover
