Presence detector


Hello Community,

don’t know if this is right in here but: is there a presence detector on the market working wireless? I only could find motion sensors but for a bathroom for example simple motion detection is a bit lame.



What wouldn’t you consider lame? There are radar motion sensors available nowadays that go through walls, but the downside of those is that they require more power than a simple PIR.


You could consider the aeotec multi sensor 6. To combine motion with humidity (when showering in a cabine) for instance. Otherwise, do not use presence detection but use a google home mini for voice control. Quite practical in a bathroom.
