    Hiome Sensors

    Looks like a great replacement for simple motion sensors. What would be needed to get these integrated with Homeseer?

    Rethink what your smart home can do with true occupancy sensing that just works.

    They advertise well. I think first is a waiting game to see if they release to market. The site says "August 2019". So until they are actually "real" it's hard to know if/how they can be integrated. From the website they claim MQTT support and if that's true then it should be very simple to integrate them.

      I have not ventured into the happy world of MQTT yet - this might be the catalyst! Worth keeping an eye on.

        Interesting...but not a fan of the power option.

          The power requirement (cable) I think will be limiting as well.

            You can build one of these with a raspberry pie, a camera and some open source software.

            This one is not pie based.

              You're absolutely right. I have already decided not to buy one!

              Gaffer tape? Seriously? I haven't taped a wire to a wall since the 80's!

              .

                It doubt it is possible to power a device like this on a battery. It would draw more power than any small batteries could provide.

                I agree that the way they demonstrate installing the cable is not very attractive. There are a lot of other ways to hide a cable.

                  I agree. The RPi option looks like it might be worth looking at!
