Aqara Announces 'Motion and Light Sensor P2' With Thread and Matter Support

Posted April 10, 2024 at 2:51pm by iClarified
Aqara has announced the availability of its new generation Motion and Light Sensor P2 built on the Thread protocol and Matter smart home standard.

The Motion and Light Sensor P2 integrates an ultra-wide angle PIR motion sensor with a standalone illumination sensor, providing precise detection up to 7 meters (ca. 23 feet) and 170° horizontally. This facilitates a range of use scenarios from automated lighting and security enhancement to climate control. The sensor also measures light intensity independently of motion detection, enabling sophisticated lighting and window covering control for optimal comfort and energy efficiency. Engineered for longevity, the Motion and Light Sensor P2 boasts a robust battery life of up to two years, ensuring dependable operation with minimal maintenance.

"In the rapidly expanding global market for Passive Infrared (PIR) sensors, Aqara has achieved remarkable success, distributing over 100,000 units last year," states Cathy You, Aqara Senior Vice President, Global Business and Strategy. "The launch of the Motion and Light Sensor P2, which combines our renowned sensor technology with the latest in connectivity protocols and standards, encapsulates our forward-thinking approach and our commitment to delivering smart home solutions that are ready for tomorrow's advancement."

As a Thread-enabled device, the Motion and Light Sensor P2 connects to any Matter controller with Thread Border Router functionality, and allows use across multiple compatible platforms thanks to Matter's multi-admin feature. Furthermore, the sensor offers a few Aqara Home exclusive features such as customizable sensitivity and detection timeout settings for tailored performance. Users can fine-tune both parameters through the Aqara Home app, which requires Aqara's own Thread-enabled Matter controller, for example the upcoming Hub M3.

Pricing and Availability
The Motion and Light Sensor P2 is now available for $33.99. For a limited time, use the coupon code USCAMSP2 to bring the price down 15% to $28.89.
