How to set up a Hive Window or Door Sensor

To set up a Hive Window or Door Sensor, follow the below steps:
  1. Put the battery into your Motion Sensor by pressing firmly on the markings of the larger piece and then pulling open the case.
  2. Once the battery is inserted tap ‘Install devices’ in your Hive app or online dashboard and follow the onscreen instructions.
  3. 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 hivehome.com.
