      Great Promise, Horrific Delivery

Additionally when the sensor is set up their is a very noticeable delay between motion happening the device recognizing it and then it send the signal to automations. The amount of time need for the motion detector to activate a automation is completely too long, even more over the motion sensor can either be super sensitive or really hard to activate and the user has no control over the sensitivity.

      Does what it's meant to do.

      My two just has a firmware update recently. You know I am happy with it. They display temperature accurately. The motion sensor can send notifications.

I do wish I could adjust the sensitivity but to give Siri 5 sensors eh still pretty awesome. I like that there is a dimmer button on back.

      Ok, but not great

      I've had this for a couple of months now. No battery power, requires a USB powered cable which makes placement of it fairly restricted. The Apple Home app displ I've had this for a couple of months now. No battery power, requires a USB powered cable which makes placement of it fairly restricted. The Apple Home app displays the information ( except for the sound sensor ) for the device sensors, but it's only capable of triggering scenes based on the motion detector. As well, unlike the philipps hue sensors, there's no ability to control the sensitivity of the motion sensor. The iHome app can use all 5 sensors, but it has limited ability to affect other smartphone devices. I've also had issues with the unit loosing connection to the network which can only be fixed by rebooting the device. When it does that, the sensors can't communicate with any of my other homekit devices. The whole promise of this 5:1 sensor was to be able to use it for security triggers but when you can't rely on whether or not it's going to work. LCD screen is bright and can be read across the room. Not a bad choice if all you want it for is to read the sensors. HomeKitGeek

      Not accurate.

      Got the device yesterday. Got it set up to test how it would work to monitor the temperature and the rest in my remote home. As of now I have the device in the Got the device yesterday. Got it set up to test how it would work to monitor the temperature and the rest in my remote home. As of now I have the device in the same room with my iPhone. Yesterday my phone app showed the temperature on the thermostat with 0.5F accuracy. It detected the sound and movement. I got hopeful and wanted to get one for each area I need. Today the the phone app reports me it’s 71.1F while it’s 77F on the monitor display and in my wall thermometer. The app is also not detecting movement and sounds, as I’m not in the room, while I’m in front of the monitor. What’s the point of having it in that case??

The device doesn't plug into the wall socket, but has a USB lead from a mains adapter. The display is clear and the HomeKit integration is very well thought out. There was a previous comment about sensitivity; the 'Threshold' can in fact be varied for Light, Sound and Motion in the iHome App. Wifi signal is very strong. I will buy another based on my initial findings, for the garage.
