Aqara High Precision Motion Sensor (RTCGQ13LM) (NOT FP1)


Just bought one of these from AliExpress on the off-chance that it will work with CORE as @Markus has had one of these motion sensors since Nov 20 and gave a glowing review here as well.

Hopefully he won’t tell me I just wasted £40.00 !

Since then it looks like Zigbee2MQTT has released a driver for it recently.

Seems like their are 19 left at present (31 May 22) Aqara High Precision Motion Sensor (RTCGQ13LM)

At $50 a pop I’d need a very good reason to go with one of these but Markus’ review sure makes it look good. I look forward to your experience.

Then it will work with CORE.

I’m not sure why you posted this in the beta group. Maybe @april.brandt will move it to public exposure.

I assume this (along with ZWave2MQTT for ZW devices) is the only thing necessary to be “compatible” with CORE since they intentionally are not trying to reinvent the wheel.

Correct AFAIK

Split post as it looks like it flipped to FP1 in error. Aqara can be so confusing sometimes.

I’m using the RTCGQ13LM in my kitchen, it has been great, though it is enormous, so unless you can mount it in-ceiling it does stand out. If you stand absolutely still it will stop updating just like any other PIR, but with the short timeout for checking for motion again it works really well in most scenarios (in my kitchen).

The one I received had a 12 volt US power brick. Some of the ceiling mount ones take 120-220 line voltage.

This is my item, and it works fantastic. Be careful to click on correct country version for included adapter
