Tips for Sonoff motion Sensor:

  • People have commented that it drops off frequently. You can get around this by wedging a piece of paper between battery steel casing and the plastic cover. It holds the battery in place and the sensor seems to be working ever since.

How to connect Sonoff motion sensor to SmartThings?

  • Smartthings v3 hub assigns it the right device handler automatically
