Best product ever
This is a nice Distributed Gateway motion sensor. It is ver,y sensitive on high, and moderate on low. It detects even near the corners. It can’t detect small motions though, which is probably a good thing!
Overall a great addition to your Govee home!
Very happy with the motion sensor. Took less than five minutes to set up. Controls multiple devises at once. Settings are customizable. Love it.
Great customer service
Works (barely). Only 2 sensitivity controls, and it's looking for warmth, if it's 120degree field of view sees something over 82 degress, it says motion is detected. So if a computer, notebook, TV screen is "seen" there is motion. Putting it in a office is useless, asit will alwsys see something "warm". it need to have more levels of sensitivity, and average out backgroud temps, so it's really looking for change. Also there is no way to set the no motion after time, this is really stupid! I have a dozen other motion detectors, all let me set "no motion detected after x minutes" (and it only loos for motion about once a minute). They should be able to do this in software OR firmware, but without this feature its almost useless (as is) to turn off devices when "no one" (really nothing has a temp over 82 degrees in room). And there is way to little documentation about how it works/what it detects. If I had known, what I know now, I would not have purchased.
Its specs say it's WIFI; it is not, it's only BT, you must have another Govee device to act as a BT to "wifi" gateway, close enought to this motion detector. And just because you have Govee a device that supports WiFi, does not me it can act as a gateway, this is not doucumented anywhere I can find.
I just want to turn off devices (lighting) when I leave the room, it fails to be able to do this relaibly.
