Abode Multi Sensor

This sensor can pick up on motion just as effectively as our motion sensor and with a much smaller profile. You can use this motion detection to trigger your alarm or for smart home purposes like turning on lights when you enter a room and off when you leave it.

Using abode’s customizable notifications, you can set alerts to notify you when a room gets above or below certain temperatures to keep it at an optimal level. If you have a connected thermostat, you can set an automation for the A/C to turn on when the temperature rises above a certain point or the heat to turn on if it gets too cold.

Never walk into a dark room again. Set an automation for your connected lights to turn on when the light in a room dips below a certain level of lumens. Great for keeping your home well-lit at night or while you aren’t home to give the illusion that someone is home.

Sensors:

  • humidity *
  • light
  • motion/occupancy

* Humidity sensor not exposed to HomeKit at present.
