How to set up a Hive Window or Door Sensor

  • Put the battery into your Motion Sensor by pressing firmly on the markings of the larger piece and then pulling open the case.
  • Once the battery is inserted tap ‘Install devices’ in your Hive app or online dashboard and follow the onscreen instructions.
  • If the Window or Door Sensor does not appear on screen after a few minutes, try moving it closer to your hub. If this doesn’t help you may need a Signal Booster to extend the range of your devices. Discover how a Signal Booster could help at
