If you are looking for a cheap HomeKit motion detector for outdoor use, we have a tip for you. IKEA motion detector is certified to IP44 protection class and thus protected against rain.
Your own smarthome doesn’t have to end with your own four walls. The outdoor area can also be excellently automated. Of course, this also includes the control of lighting. This is done conveniently via a motion detector.
If you already have a hub from IKEA, you can upgrade to an outdoor motion detector for just 12.99€ / $14.99, which can also be used via HomeKit. IKEA TRÅDFRI wireless motion detector can be installed both indoors and in the bathroom or outdoors.
Motion detector without Hub
If you don’t have a hub from IKEA or Philips Hue (Signify also offers an outdoor motion sensor ), you can use the Eve Motion. This is IPX3 certified and even supports the new smarthome standard Matter. However, with a recommended retail price of 49.99€ / $49.99, it is not a bargain.
