Philips Hue motion sensor Teardown

I’m using my hue sensor in openhab and really like them, I was looking for some nice teardown pictures of the hue motion sensor, but could only find the Hue dimmer switcch dissection & Hue tap Dissection

Since I’m pretty curious what’s inside, and how they get this good batterylife I will dissassemble one of my hue motion sensors in the name of science to see what’s in there, I hope I can help someone else out with these.

I’ll try to compile a list of the items I find on the board, if you have any additions please let me know 🙂
– Atmega M2564RFR2-ZU
– 4mb serial flash 25fu406c
– Some type of Pir motionsensor

  1. I’m trying to create a thermometer for my pool with this. Have you detected where the temperature-sensor is on the PCB?

  2. Thanks! Was debating getting another for teardown purposes (not that much “tear” is involved, I’m just very busy and tossed a bunch of them up for energy savings, especially in summer) and it just so happens was just shopping for one of those boards…

    1. Thanks 🙂 yeah, I managed to get it back together as well! I’m using them with hue system and openhab for more advanced automation rules.
