I found the battery compartment very hard to open. The issue with the battery compartment is the lid. First, there is not enough grooves to get a good grip to open the lid to the battery compartment. Next, they placed an adhesive sticker right in the middle of the lid. This adhesive is there so you can stick the Onvis on a wall if you want. But with this design, there is little real estate to get a good grip in order to push the lid open. I had to use an end of a scissors to pry the lid open.
The hardware for this Homekit motion sensor is good. The reactiion time for the motion sensor is fast. Once the device detects you, any Homekit trigger you have created executes quickly. However, it appears to have a hard coded 12 seconds time out. Meaning, once motion is not detected anymore, the Homekit No Motion event will be called 12 seconds later. Unlike the Elgato Eve motion sensor, the timeout for the ONVIS does not appear to be configurable. Therefore, you can't set custom hardware based timeouts like you can do with the Elgato Eve Motion product. You will need to use the Homekit software based Undo feature to get any sort of custom timeout.
Next, the Ovis keeps a log of all motion events. The Elgato Eve motion sensor does this as well. But the Eve product shows both motion and no motion events, with nicely formatted graphs. The Onvis has no graphs. It just displays the time when motion occurs virtically on the screen. Also, displaying of this text based log takes a lot more time than I though it would, where the Elgato Eve product displays the data more quickly.
The app Onvis app is badly written. There are a lot of spelling errors. The Documentation help, and About Us, sections are written in Chinese. The Onvis app has different screens for Scenes and Devices, but does not categorize them by room. Since there are much better Homekit apps, you don't really need to use the Onvis app for anything but firmware updates. It would be great if they could add an option to have the motion timeout configurable as well, like the Elgato Eve app does. Lastly, it would been more practical if the device had a light sensor like the Hue Motion Sensor has. A humidity sensor is great, but a light sensor works more in conjunction, with a motion sensor, than a humidity sensor.
So, right now, I'd give the Onvis app a 1, but the hardware a 4, on a scale of 5. Since the device has multiple sensors, I'm going to give it an overal rating of 4 right now.
Update - 1/26/2019
The app, and firmware, were updated a few days ago. The app now looks, and works, very good. Also, the firmware update allows the user to select a specific timeout for the motion sensor, just like Eve Motion. So, based on this update, this motion sensor is on par with Eve Motion in terms of speed and core functionality. The lower price of the ONVIS makes it much more attractive than buying Eve Motion. I updated my rating to 5 stars based on the upgraded functionality, but the battery compartment is still hard to open and needs a redesign. Battery life is still an unknow since the product is new.
Update - 2/18/2019
I have found that Unlike Eve Motion, the sensitivity of this motion sensor cannot be changed. Therefore, if you place this sensor in a place where the sun casts shadows in your room, the motion sensor might pick it up as movement. Without having the ability to change the sensitivity, it will be hard to fix this type of problem. For that reason, I'm lowering my rating back down to 4 stars.
Although the Onvis isn't the smallest sensor and might require a little work to hide it, at the price point, you really can't beat it for value. The addition of the humidity and temperature sensors just make this that much better.
The unit is solid...no doubt about it! The instructions, however, are another thing entirely. And when I tried to update the firmware (nice to see that it knows to do that), it never completes the process....just spins as if it’s updating, but I don’t think it ever did. It works okay through Apple’s HomeKit without issues...that’s probably it’s only saving grace.
I considered the Eve motion sensor, but because of its higher price, larger footprint, lower ratings, and odd battery, I took a chance to buy the Onvi. And needing to change AAA batteries every 2 years or so (even once a year would be fine), it was a no brainer! I would do it again...might just buy another one.
Top reviews from other countries
Seeing the cheaper price and the possitive reviews I thought Onvis could solve this issue while saving me money.
This turned out not to be the case. The Onvis device seemed to be no more responsive than Eve and occationally got stuck in a 'detecting motion' state, something that never happens with Eve.
As noted elsewhere the Onvis App is aweful and buggy - it repeatedly crashes on me . I did eventually get the hardware to update using the app after about 4 attempts. But once set up you can forget about the app and use Homekit or Eve instead.
The size of the device is great, about 2/3 the size of Eve, but the only option to wall mount is a provided sticky pad that covers the back of the device, including the battery cover. So you'll need to damage your paintwork to change the battery.
In the end I found some Eve motion detectors for almost the same price as the Onvis so bought those. Even if I could only find full price Eve units I think I still would have gone back to those. I did keep the Onvis device, but switched it into an automation where its temprementally would not be an issue.
I actually can’t recommend it all, it barely ever never off “Nit Responding” on the Apple Home app, the motion sensor even though I didn’t buy it for that... barely ever register let’s movement and if it does... it’s 5 minutes to late.
It uses Bluetooth to connect to devices which is meant to be lot quicker apparently... nope! If I hadn’t of thrown away the box I would return it! Taught me a lesson in that way, don’t throw away box straight after!
Worse smart device I’ve ever bought!
The homekit intergration for those interested in using it outside the app is just fine and the setup takes no more than 30 sec
In meinem System sind zwei Bewegungssensoren aktiv: Eine Ikea TRADFRI-Steuereinheit mit Bewegungsmelder, und die hier rezensierte. Die Zuverlässigkeit ist bei der Version von ONVIS deutlich besser. Dies betrifft sowohl die Schaltzeiten, als auch die Zuverlässig, ob eine Bewegung überhaupt erkannt wird. Testweise wurden beide Geräte direkt nebeneinander gestellt. Die über den ONVIS-Melder gesteuerte Lampe schaltete zu unterschiedlichen Tageszeiten schneller und verlässlicher als die Lampe über TRADFRI. Dazu sollte man anmerken, dass ich die Funktionalität von ONVIS als "baseline" für einen Bewegungsmelder erwarten würde, und von TRADFRI eher enttäuscht bin. Tatsächlich gelingt es ab und zu, den "TRADFRI-Raum" zu betreten und wieder zu verlassen, ohne dass das Licht angeht.
Die Anzeige von Temperatur und Luftfeuchtigkeit waren bei mir ebenfalls ausschlaggebend für den Kauf. Diese werden problemlos in der Home App (siehe Screenshot) eingebettet und lassen die Werte natürlich auch außerhalb des Netzwerks abfragen. Etwas ärgerlich finde ich die Skalierung der Einheiten: Veränderungen der Luftfeuchtigkeit werden in 1%-Schritten gemessen, die der Temperatur leider auch nur in vollen °C-Schritten, auch wenn dies durch die Anzeige anders suggeriert wird ("25 Komma 0 °C"). Man kann sicher debattieren, ob man eine Veränderung von 2% Luftfeuchte eher wahrnimmt als 0,5°C Temperatur. Vielleicht sollte der Hersteller aber auch einfach etwas an der Empfindlichkeit der verbauten Instrumente oder der Anzeige schrauben.
Ich mag nicht ausschließen, dass die Anzeige-Skala anpassbar ist, allerdings gibt die sehr kurze Anleitung dazu keine Auskünfte, und die hauseigene App verlangt vor Benutzung das Einrichten eines Nutzerkontos. Im Paket gibt es dafür einen Stern Abzug.
Update: Nach einem Update ist ein Einrichten eines Nutzerkontos nicht länger erforderlich und die App kann auch ohne verwendet werden. Die App selbst ist nichts Besonderes, erlaubt aber ein Firmwareupdate des Sensors, der seitdem die Temperatur auch in 0,5er-Schritten abstuft. Die Bewertung wird entsprechend auf 5 Sterne erhöht.
Unter iOS 13 und über die App "Controller for HomeKit" ist es mir zudem gelungen, Luftfeuchtigkeit und Temperatur als Trigger für HomeKit-Automationen zu verwenden. So springt jetzt immer der Luftentfeuchter an, sobald eine bestimmte Schwelle überschritten und schaltet sich wieder aus, wenn sie unterschritten wird. Der Nutzen ist für den Preis immens, da das nächste HomeKit-fähige Hygrometer (Eve Degree) ohne Bewegungsmelder aktuell das doppelte kostet.
