Signify’s New Motion Detection Technology Turns Lights On and Off Without the Need for Sensors

CS Signify

September 22, 2022

Signify introduces a new app, features and products for its WiZ smart lighting system to enhance users’ daily convenience. The new offerings include SpaceSense™, a motion detection technology for your lighting system that doesn’t require any sensor to be installed. The new WiZ app V2 and the SpaceSense™ feature are available from end of September 2022.

Lights that work like magic

The SpaceSense™ feature is a never-seen-before innovation in the consumer lighting industry developed by WiZ. It uses Wi-Fi signals that are already present in the room to detect motion – without the need of dedicated sensors and batteries. Wi-Fi signals are slightly disturbed when people move around in a room, like a ripple in a swimming pool. By measuring the small deviations in signal strength caused by those disturbances, the WiZ lights can determine if there is an object moving in the room.

The detection is omnidirectional and doesn’t require line of sight during installation, like in the case for a traditional motion sensor. The sensitivity of the system can be adjusted, for example, to prevent your pets from turning the lights on and off while running in and out of the room. You simply install at least two lights per room and connect them with the WiZ app V2. The new feature is completely opt-in so all WiZ users can decide themselves whether they would like to make use of it or not.

Danny Lousberg, Head of Software Product Management of WiZ: ” For many users the need for extra hardware to enable motion detection in their system felt complex, expensive and cumbersome. Now, for the first time ever, SpaceSense™ takes those hurdles away, opening up automations and other smart lighting advanced benefits to everyone.”

Take lighting into your own hands

Next to SpaceSense™, the WiZ app V2 is full of other surprises and offers exciting new features plus smoother interactions. The brand-new user interface makes for an even more intuitive experience to make people’s everyday life easier. The Quick Action feature allows you to control your personalized lighting choices faster, independently from other users in your home, while the Light Scene feature lets your creativity come to life by creating a specific Scene for any room. You can tweak light settings as desired, create a new Scene, and initiate it within the app or with Siri voice control for an instant change in atmosphere.
