Sonoff has recently introduced its first Human Presence Sensor: The Sonoff SNZB-06P Zigbee and although it will be officially available in stock from its Official Website in mid-November I have been able to get my hands on one of these units. Today I bring you my first impressions about the new Sonoff Human Presence Sensor, so get comfortable and let’s get started.
What is a Human Presence Sensor?
For you to fully understand this article and how this new device works, you have to know the principle of operation of this type of sensors as there is a lot of confusion with this type of devices. For this, I invite you to take a look at my previous article where I explain in detail the different types of Presence Sensors and how they work. I leave you the link below:
If you have already read the previous article we are ready to start talking about this new Sonoff Human Presence Sensor.
Sonoff SNZB-06P Human Presence Sensor
General Characteristics and Operation of the Sonoff SNZB-06P
According to Sonoff, this new Human Presence Sensor is based on 5.8GHz microwave radar. It is capable of detecting people in motion as well as in stationary state. It includes the functionality to detect light to know the state of illumination of the site where it is located and thus be able to optimize the automation and functionality assigned to it.
On the other hand Sonoff tells us that it maintains its compatibility with Alexa, Smart Things, IFTTT, Google Home, etc. Its new Zigbee 3.0 chip gives it a very fast response speed, although you should already imagine that you need a Zigbee HUB to be able to link it.
Thanks to the versatility and accuracy of this new sensor we will be able to take our home automation and energy efficiency to a new level, keeping downtime on and off equipment to a minimum. Oh, and if you want to take it to the highest level of automation, linking it with the new iHost Sonoff will ensure full operation of your equipment, even if you run out of internet connection.

Where to buy the new Sonoff Presence Sensor?
At the moment the device is in the pre-release stage until mid-November 2023. Because of this Sonoff has implemented a fairly inexpensive starting price to help with the wait for stock of this product. And truly, one of the things I liked the most was its starting price.
Currently we can get this device at 14.90 € on the official website of Sonoff. But if this price was already more than good, remember that with the code AXLMSONOFF you will have an extra 10% discount making your purchase even cheaper.
