Can you recommend any sensor sockets that work like Samsung SmartThings Motion sensor and SmartThings Power Outlet but do not require WiFi

Hi,

I have a SmartThings Motion sensor and a SmartThings Power Outlet.

I set these devices up so that when I would walk into a room, the sensor would sense my movement and turn on the Outlet.

However, if I do not have my internet for these devices, the Outlet will not be turned on.

I have seen devices such as sensor lights but was wondering if such things existed for a socket where WiFi was not needed.

Can you recommend any sensor sockets that work like these devices but do not require WiFi?

Thanks,
Robbie

Yes, there are such things, but you have to be very specific with what you want.
For example, do you want a replica 1:1 to those from Samsung, only without WiFi or just the functionality is important or should be somehow controlled by a smartphone or other remote or for instance just a simple plug activated by motion detection:

The motion sensor is incorporated in the body of the plug.
Do you need the sensor independent or is it OK as in the above links?
Then, should that sensor be able to read also the temperature as the Samsung one? If yes, then how do you expect to read the temperature? ON your mobile or PC or other dedicated displays?

Hi,

Thank you for your recommendations viki2000.

I have a few electronic devices in a room which do not need to be on when there is nobody in the room.

The times are variable for when people would be in the room.

These devices are plugged into an extension lead which I would like plugged into a sensor socket.

Ideally what I would like is for when someone walks in the room, the sensor socket would switch on and the devices would in turn switch on too.

The opposite would happen when someone leaves the room for a few minutes.

I would like one that does not require a hub or Wi-Fi as I would have a switch connected to this sensor socket.

Also, it would be an advantage if the sensor socket did not turn off if people were sitting down watching TV but not making much movement.

What would you recommend?

Thanks,
Robbie
