We want you to get the most out of your YoLink products! Customers that use our indoor Motion Sensors for home security often do not think it can be used for lighting control, or vice versa, but you can use your Motion Sensor for both! Consider one of our light switches, teamed up with your motion sensors, to light a room up as you enter it. Hands-free and convenient! This is especially popular for bathroom foyers and vestibules (where your hands are typically full as you arrive home) as well as for walk-in closets, storage and laundry rooms.
If you've set up a motion sensor to turn on the bathroom light, you can arrange for the lights to turn automatically after a period without motion detection. Door sensors can also be used to determine if a light should turn on or off. For example, a door leading to the garage can have the garage lights turn on, then the motion sensor can turn them off after, for example, 10 minutes without motion being detected. This is extremely easy to set up in the app, as well as with IFTTT or Alexa or Google Assistant. In those cases, you can control non-YoLink lights, switches and plugs (as long as they have a "skill" or integration with IFTTT/Alexa/Google).
And, it is very easy to use your motion sensors for home security! Add one of our siren products, one of our hubs, and you have a basic security system. Add door sensors on exterior doors and windows, add an AlarmFob or FlexFob (to arm/disarm the system) and you have an easy to install and economical home security system!
Give it a try! Our customer support department is here to assist with any questions that come up!

We have tested various devices for a few weeks. I have to say that we are very pleased.
The first thing we noticed when unpackaging was that everything seem to be designed and made with attention to detail and care. That was a little surprising for us. Many times you get cheap packaging and apps that look like they were created in a single afternoon. Not so in this case. We had to double check to verify that this is a start up company. By all outward indications, it feels like it’s a well polished company that has been in business for quite some time. All manuals and set up information is available online. Do not expect much in the box. We had a little difficulty finding the information we needed at first but we were grateful, and still are, for the fast response from the company.
Since we mentioned the company, we have to note that any kind of support request is answered promptly, even at odd hours of the night. That was surprising. But they have always been friendly and helpful, even when we should have checked product documentation first.
"This sensor has a range which is beyond imagination!"

Well there have been so many sensors. So why buy yolink?
If you are thinking of this question then stop thinking and buy first and the read my review. I have been experimenting with smart home products since last 7 years when they were barely launched starting with smart bulbs and moving on to all different products and using Alexa to bind them and then comes these sensors.
Frankly I have wasted tons of money on contact and motion sensors. I have tried sensors linked to hubs via zigbee and zwave which have their own problems with regards to range and going offline etc etc
Then comes wifi sensors which require routers in every room and they have a significant lag ofcourse. And if your wifi is down then bye bye to them
Frankly I was so fed up I stopped using any sensors. Controlled everything with voice which works atleast 99% of time
And then I read about yolink. Their loran technology. I am from aviation and yes we have knowledge of long range technology and different wavelengths as such. So we'll it seemed interesting.
"Replacing my Z-wave motion sensors with these, which have much better range!"

I've been in the process of replacing my old Z-wave motion sensors and wall switches with the YoLink sensors and switches. All have worked well and so easy to setup. I've installed 9 of the motion sensors and 10 of the wall switches with more additions soon. Also installed a couple of their garage door sensors. I tried to install one of the motion sensors in my mailbox which is 935' (285m) away from the hub. The hub was able to receive the signal from the sensor, but once I installed it inside the mailbox, it lost signal, most likely from the metal mailbox, a couple houses and some tree's that the signal has to go through. I was just amazed that it was able to pick up the signal at that distance. Very satisfied with the system and will be ordering door sensors next.
A few months later:
Added a YoLink Speaker Hub a while back to get better range and the mailbox sensor has been working great ever since. Alexa announces that I got mail and an office lamp turns on and changes color to green.
Works every time.

Yolink products are the best. I never thought I would buy into a Hub system but that is exactly what makes this product work so well. Device to device paring is what makes there family of devices work so well even without internet or wifi access.
