The outdoor sensor turns on your Philips Hue lights automatically when somebody passes by. By connecting the sensor to your bridge via the Philips Hue app, you can choose which lights go on, even inside your house. Also choose the scene or light setting that should be triggered. The integrated dusk-to-dawn sensor ensures your lights only switch on when it is actually dark outside helping you to conserve energy.

Firstly, the "logic" of some of the settings strikes me as a little weird. Of course, you have night time and day time settings, but the settings that alter the devices sensitivity to daylight just didn't seem to work. Also, compared to the indoor motion sensor, this device doesn't seem to have any temperature sensor.
It's quite bulky too. Probably about 4 times the size of the indoor sensor.
So, it's pricey, lacks functionality and is too big. It's a shame, but I can't really recommend this motion sensor.
I did have a little difficulty initially, the light level sensor wasn't working. A quick call to a very helpful person at Philips had it reset and up and running. So excellent product AND excellent support!
Build quality is up to the usual high Hue standard - a bit larger than the indoor one and predominantly black in colour, with the exception of the sensor itself, which accounts for the lower half of the front dome. It also comes with accessories to enable mounting the sensor in all sorts of useful places - flat on a wall, in a corner, on an outer corner or beam. In my case, it’s the latter, and fitting it took minutes (as did set-up within the Hue app). It blends in really well - glad Hue went with black for the outdoor sensor.
I live in a ground floor flat in a block of six and I’ve paired the outdoor motion sensor with a Hue bulb in the canopy above the front exterior security door to the stairwells. Whilst all the stairwell lights were already set to come on when it gets dark, having this means the outside light is not on all night.
Someone walks in front of the sensor (which has a greater range than the indoor one) and it turns on the light to the preferred level and colour/shade, then turns off again after no motion is detected for the period you choose. All good so far, but that’s not where it ends - the best feature for me, is the fact you can also have the sensor control your indoor lights. The fact that this product (along with all Hue lights and accessories) is HomeKit compatible, means you can set up some nifty automations.
In addition to turning on the outside light, I have a HomeKit automation that will turn on both my lounge and kitchen lights when motion is detected outside - but only if they are not already on.
From a security point of view, this is great - motion-sensing outdoor lights have been a thing for decades, so they are not really that much of a deterrent for burglars. If someone is outside though and your inside lights go on, say in the middle of the night, that’s far more powerful in making someone think there’s someone alerted to their presence.
All in all, I’m really pleased with it - looks great, feels high quality and most importantly, it’s really useful and versatile.
Ah, after taking Philips to task on FB they came back almost immediately to say known software issue which was to be fixed (no details when of course)
