A Philips Hue motion detector may soon become a reality, in line with the new FCC filing spotted by Dave Zatz. Instead of having to deal with a second smart home system like SmartThings, to get the proper motion sensor, Philips Hue owners may soon be able to easily integrate sensor designed to work with the lights on.
It should not be expensive, according to British Alza online store, which has a motion sensor that is available for pre-order for £34 ($44). The description says the motion sensor will have 100-degree viewing angle than five meters, which is less than the field of view of 120 degrees of motion sensor view on SmartThings.
With Alza pegging September as the possible release date, it should not be too long before we find out more about Philips Hue’s motion sensor.
