Great Zigbee PIRVerified ReviewerThis connects well with a Sonoff Zigbee dongle, connected to a Raspberry Pi, running Zigbee2Mqtt (I suspect Ikea do not support this setup). The Web GUI interface exposes all the options required and lets you directly connect to another Zigbee device (ie a ZB light) or to variety Home Automation software (I use Domoticz). You can even monitor the state of the battery.5
It simply worksVerified ReviewerThis works great in my hall way. Where the light switch is a couple meters in from the front door. I've bought two sensors and paired them to one light. (For those interested - pair 1 sensor to the light bulb, then pair the two sensors). Very happy with the end result.5
cannot change timeVerified ReviewerIt's small and simple. Everything works fine, but there is no option to change the interval the light stays on. It's three minutes whether you like it or not. This is a serious drawback and there should be a warning sticker on the box!2
GarbageVerified ReviewerI’ve got a bunch of these in my house. They just keep disconnecting for no reason. Avoid.1
It’s as basic as basicVerified ReviewerBrought it hoping for support to at least control when it would be used but nope. Connects to just Ikea lights. And turns on and off when motion. Plain and nothing about it. Doesn’t support HomeKit even tho it’s apart of a smart line of home products that does which makes no sense.2
SensorVerified ReviewerA revelation, so easy and impressive to visitors5
Neat and functional device, but...Verified ReviewerAfter years of fumbling in the dark trying to unlock my front door, I got this (and an accompanying Tradfri bulb) to operate the porch light automatically. It's not as easy to set up as there are three very fiddly buttons, but once done it works pretty well. It can be a bit sluggish to detect movement, but that may be down to where I've positioned it. But what I do like is that you configure it directly with a couple of neat options, so you can tell it to operate all the time or only in darkness, and also whether you want maximum brightness or just 30%. This means it's also good for using on a landing, to automatically give the area a soft glow if you get up in the night, without waking everyone up. I could live without the tiny screw holding the battery compartment, but since this uses two cell batteries instead of just one, I expect it won't be something I need to concern myself with very often.4
Great Price, Great ProductVerified ReviewerI love technology and I love this device! I added this to my hallway and kitchen as I was fed up of people leaving the lights on! I intend on buying more now, for the porch and bathroom. It’s great that the ikea lighting system is modular, I can just keep adding devices as I see fit. The sensor works a treat! The sensor is highly reactive and there is little to no delay on the lights coming on once movement is detected! The only thing I will say is that setup was confusing as the device has just been updated, I couldn’t see how to program how long the lights stay on after no movement, this used to be an option on the back of the device however this dial no longer exists. It seems that the device will stay on for a set 3 mins after no movement detected, which is absolute fine in my eyes! I think this is great for hallways, kitchens, porches, utilities but is not suitable in bedrooms as you wouldn’t want the lights turning on every time you moved in the night!5
Cannot get it to workVerified ReviewerIt seemed to pair with the smart light but I could not get the motion sensor to do anything in either daylight or complete darkness despite trying/resetting/checking web FAQs, all the different sensitivity/light options, etc, several times. I took the first one back & tried another but had the same issue. Also I noticed that if I hold the connect button down for longer (the light goes through various flashes) it disconnects the light from the light's own remote control. I guess it could be a problem with the light (Tradfri LED) but that seems to work very well and paired with the remote first time. I am surprised as Ikea stuff is normally excellent.1
Simple/dumb motion sensorVerified ReviewerDon’t expect this motion sensor to do anything else apart from turn on a light or a group of lights for three minutes at a time. It’s not compatible with Apple HomeKit and if for some reason you turn the lights off with a switch or Siri motion sensor won’t turn it back on until the three minutes has elapsed From the last movement detected. Should be £10 not £153
Does exactly what I want it to do.Verified ReviewerUsed in a dressing room without a window, turns on the lights when the door is opened turns them off when there is no movement. It just works.5
Good but hard to set upVerified ReviewerBought the sensor to go under the stairs for a bulb that I put in a lamp. It works perfectly and it’s just what was needed. BUT I found it extremely hard to set up between the night/day setting and the other settings. Also there’s no information about the length of time the bulb stays on for after no movement - so if your wondering it’s 60 seconds4
Very limited functionVerified ReviewerSettings are very limited and you can’t ‘nest’ automations; where you have a lamp controlled by time, this will simply over-ride that instruction. Useful if you want a lamp that is ONLY controlled by motion... but there are easier solutions for that. Sadly, the Trådfri motion sensor just isn’t that smart. If it worked with HomeKit, perhaps it could be used in more detailed set ups.1

Our take on plastic

Plastic is a key material for IKEA and remains so going forward. It is strong, durable, lightweight and versatile. It is a main component in a large amount of our products and has a wide variety of applications from surface materials such as paint and foil, to screws and shelf pegs. There is a lot of valid concern regarding how plastic impacts the environment and at IKEA we take this very seriously. As part of our larger circular journey and transition from virgin fossil based material, we are working hard to change all plastic in our home furnishing products to plastic made from recycled and/or renewable raw materials.

Only recycled or renewable plastic

Plastic is most commonly derived from oil and gas, which are non-renewable fossil sources. These sources do not renew themselves and will eventually be depleted. Our ambition is that by 2030, all plastic used in our products will be based on renewable or recycled materials. Renewable plastic is made from materials such as vegetable oil, corn, wheat grain and sugar cane. Recycled plastic allows us to give a second life to non-biodegradable products such as PET bottles that would otherwise end up in landfill. Using recyclable sources also lessens our dependency on oil as a raw material. Currently more than 40% of our plastic products are based on recycled and renewable materials and our aim is to reach 100%. As we add products made from recycled and renewable materials to our offer, we hope to inspire other companies to do the same.

Phasing out single-use plastic

Single-use plastic items pollute ecosystems if not disposed of responsibly. As part of our commitment to people and the planet, all single-use plastic products from the global home furnishing range were phased out in 2020. This includes items such as plates, cups and plastic straws offered in our restaurants, bistros, and cafes. These were replaced by disposables made from 100% renewable sources.

PET and PP, our most commonly used plastics

Polythylene terephthalate (PET) and Polypropylene (PP) are durable, hygienic and shatter-resistant plastics. They absorb very little water and have good chemical resistance. Both PET and PP can be reused and recycled, which reduces waste and gives the product several lives through use and reuse. PET is the most recycled plastic in the world and can be used for many different purposes such as plastic bottles and containers for packaging food and beverages as well as for personal care products, pharmaceuticals and many other consumer products. At IKEA we mainly use recycled PET in boxes, filling material for textiles and kitchen front foil. PET is approved by health-agencies as safe to use for food and beverage. IKEA uses recycled PET that is post-consumer based, which means it is based on collected and sorted PET bottles.

Clean and safe

IKEA takes product safety very seriously and all products are tested and comply with the strictest possible laws and safety standards on all IKEA markets. Customers should always feel confident that products bought at IKEA are safe and healthy to use. IKEA wants to minimize or totally refrain from the use of chemicals and substances that can be harmful to people and the environment.

Together, we can do more

Our journey towards only using recycled or renewable plastic will take some time and require new ways of doing things, but we are determined to take responsibility and find new solutions. We want to give our customers the possibility to choose products made from more sustainable materials that can be recycled again one day. Together, we can make a big difference!


What is ABS plastic?

ABS plastic is a strong and stable material with a glossy surface – making it perfect for especially used everyday objects like cutlery drawers, kitchen utensils, toothbrush mugs and bathroom hooks. ABS is made from oil-based, non-renewable raw materials, but development is progressing and we are using more and more recycled ABS. It is an important step towards our goal of only using plastic that is recycled or from renewable sources.
