Aqara Motion Sensor

Detects motion at a distance

The Aqara Motion Sensor detects human movement with passive infrared. It works with other smart accessories to set various scenes, such as turning on or off lights automatically when it detects activity or inactivity. It consumes low energy. No tools are required to install it, and you can simply place or stick it almost anywhere.

Features:

  • 170-degree motion detection: You will be able to use the stock ultra-wide angle of the sensor or limit it using any obstacle or a regular electric tape.
  • Easy and flexible installation methods: No tools are required for installation. With a sensor stand and sticker, you can set the motion sensor wherever you want. The stand can make a 360 rotation and you can easily adjust the detection angle.
  • Remote security notification: With the Motion Sensor, you can turn on alarm mode when you leave the house. When motion is detected, the Hub will sound an alarm and send a notification to your phone.
  • Automatically Turns Lights on or off: When motion is detected in the evening, the Hub light can be automatically turned on.
  • 2-Year Battery Life: A tiny battery can provide the sensor with a solid battery life of 2 years
  • Smart Control in Apple Home App: Works with other HomeKit-enabled accessories in the Apple Home app to make your life easier.
  • Advanced Technology: A Japanese infrared sensor is used to detect human motion through the moving heat source and the US Polyolefin Fresnel lens is used for high precision detection. The shell is made of anti-UV material and the colour will not fade allowing for long-term usage. The high-quality flame-retardant material is used to improve safety.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q

How to identify if the Aqara Motion Sensor works properly?

A
  1. Use the eject pin to poke the reset hole on the motion sensor. If the Hub makes voice prompts, “Normal link confirmed”, it signifies that the Hub and the Motion Sensor are communicating properly. Go to (2); If there are no voice prompts, move the sensor and the Hub closer together and try again. If there is still no voice prompts, the sensor might be deleted or it might have run out of battery. Ensure you refer to the device adding methods to add the device or replace the battery.
  2. Put your hand in front of the lens, enter the home of Motion Sensor in app, refresh the device records (log). If there is 1 to 5 minutes log around this moment, it indicates that the device is working effectively.

 


Q

Why does the Aqara Motion Sensor fail to connect? How to reconnect?

A

There are 3 possible reasons:

  1. An Operation error. Try to add the device according to the adding method again.
  2. The device is too far apart from the Hub. You can try to move the device closer to the Hub.
  3. There are too many devices under the Hub.

Q

Why is the Aqara Motion Sensor offline often?

A

There are 3 possible reasons:

  1. If the device is too far apart from the Hub, please test the distance between the sensor device and the Hub and install the device closer to the Hub.
  2. Low battery or no battery. You may need replace the battery.
  3. The device is installed on the surface and the signal strength is low or there are interferences. Please avoid metal surfaces and minimise the obstacles between the hub and the sensor where possible.

Q

Where should the Aqara Motion Sensor be installed and how do I install them?

A
  1. Install in the area that needs to be monitored, for example in the living room or bedroom (during installation, please refer to the portion of the manual regarding the motion sensor is operating range).
  2. A coffee table, shoe cabinet or desk can be used, but ensure that it is installed close to the edge (recommended height is 1.2m to 2.1m);
  3. Ensure you do not place on a metal surface or allow anything to block the motion sensor.

Q

If a pet enters the detection area of the Aqara Motion Sensor, will it trigger the sensor?

A

Yes. However if you do not want a pet to trigger the sensor, then refer to the detection diagram in the quick start guide and place the motion sensor in a higher location. Therefore a pet will not trigger the sensor when it moves on the ground. (Please refer to the quick start guide regarding the installation options).


Q

The Aqara Motion Sensor does not respond, and indicator light does not blink when I poke the reset hole. Why is that?

A

Possible reason:

  1. The battery has died or depleted;
  2. The PCB is damaged;
  3. Sensor crashes.

Q

The Motion Sensor does not respond, but indicator light blinks when I poke the reset hole. Why is that?

A

There are 4 possible reasons:

  1. PIR sensor or related circuit is damaged;
  2. Sensor is triggered each minute and it is right in interval between each minute;
  3. The detecting interval extends to 10 minutes in sub-health or warehouse mode;
  4. Lens are damaged.

Q

The Aqara Motion Sensor does not respond, but indicator light is dim when I poke the reset hole. Why is that?

A

Low battery.


Q

The Aqara Motion sensor is not sensitive to detect motion. Why is that?

A

The Aqara Motion sensor detects once every minute by default and goes to sleep mode after it is triggered. After one minute, it is triggered again. It might be in the sleep mode when you were using it.


Q

Some trigger interval of the Motion Sensor is long and some is short. Why is that?

A

One hour after it is connected to the network (Newly added to the network mode), the Motion Sensor is triggered once every 5 seconds. If it is not triggered within an hour, it automatically enters Normal User Mode. It is then triggered once every minute.


Q

There is no motion of human or pets in the detection area but why can I still see the log in the app?

A

It might happen if the Motion Sensor is placed close to the heat source, micro wave stove, air conditioner or an area that is exposed to a strong light.


Q

How can the Aqara Motion Sensor be reset? When should it be reset?

A
  1. Push in and hold the reset hole on the device for 3 seconds. The indicator will flash 3 times then it will reset to factory settings;
  2. If a sensor needs to be paired with another sensor hub, it will need to be reset before the new pairing will succeed.
