Motion sensors are one of the simplest ways to monitor and secure your home. These little devices detect when somebody or something enters a room, approaches your door, window, or hallway and sends an alert to your security system. With newer and smart home-compatible sensors, the alert is sent straight to your mobile phone.
Our top motion sensor pick is the TP-Link Tapo Smart Motion Sensor which sends alerts straight to your phone. It can also be used with other smart home components, like smart globes, to turn on lights as you walk down the hallway at night.
We’ve compiled a list of our favourite motion sensors for smart homes, security, and nightlights, so you can evaluate which motion sensor is best suited to you and your family’s needs.
