      Wish It Performed

      I really wanted to like this sensor. But it doesn't turn lights on fast enough. Not clear if this is a motion sensing issue (sensitivity is turned to high) or I really wanted to like this sensor. But it doesn't turn lights on fast enough. Not clear if this is a motion sensing issue (sensitivity is turned to high) or a network/communications lag issue. There is so much delay that you can walk past it, and be out of its range before the light will trigger on. To be clear, it does what it says it will do, it's just hampered by this annoying delay. Also, If I had to nit pick, it doesn't have an ambient light sensor, and it's also physcially bigger then it needs to be (did Elgato look at Philips motion sensor size? But that one is not HomeKit compatible). On a positive note, the app is quite powerful and capable of handling many situations to control HomeKit devices and scenes. But it is complicated to setup, and requires a steep learning curve. Sadly, it needs to go back, can't live with the delay.

      Works for intended use

      Currently using this as a replacement for my security alarm motion sensor. Works better than previous sensor but probably works a little too well.

I mean the sensor is always on (as designed), so for home automation is perfect but for home security the notifications are too much when you're home, although i know i just have to disable notifications.

      Too slow

      It was configured with Apple TV to automate my hallway lightings after sunset. Setup was easy but even with its highest sensitivity settings, it was too slow t It was configured with Apple TV to automate my hallway lightings after sunset. Setup was easy but even with its highest sensitivity settings, it was too slow to trigger my lights. It defeats the purpose using it to trigger lights as the person was already past the hallway before lights turn on. I hope firmware update could fix it, otherwise it might be useful to trigger toilet flush.

      I'm not great at this home automation stuff

      I bought the motion sensor along with a few other Elgato products but I haven't set it up to trigger anything like a light yet. Not sure where I can do so in my I bought the motion sensor along with a few other Elgato products but I haven't set it up to trigger anything like a light yet. Not sure where I can do so in my house. I have an Energy outlet that I could set up, but I'm tnot sure where it would be most practical, yet. It does keep track of motion trip events, so I know it will work a little, but I've seen other reviews that it's a little laggy. I need to learn more about home automation.

    • Does this work with Philips Hue?
      • Asked by Corina P from Orlando

      Answer

      Yes, you can trigger Hue lights or other Home Kit accessories to function or react. Once the Eve Mo Yes, you can trigger Hue lights or other Home Kit accessories to function or react. Once the Eve Motion is setup on your network, you can then setup automations in the Eve app, or in the Home app under Automation. You do need an Apple TV 4th gen or a stationary (basically dedicated) iPad for automation to work.
