Philips Hue motion sensor Teardown

I was looking for some nice teardown pictures of the hue motion sensor, but could only find the Hue dimmer switcch dissection & Hue tap Dissection

Since I’m pretty curious what’s inside, and how they get this good batterylife I will dissassemble one of my hue motion sensors in the name of science to see what’s in there, I hope I can help someone else out with these.

– 4mb serial flash 25fu406c

For my project where I control my remote via pnps I want to create a low power sensor which will be able to send humidity & temperature data to my openhab server which is running mosquitto

I did find a way to gain root access, and I wanted to add a recording of the process, but I dropped my cam while resetting it, rendering it useless 🙁 So I can only give you the steps I took, to root it (I have ran the rooted cam for 14 days without problems) so you can try it yourself.

For this setup I used mitmproxy to capture the traffic from the B120N when it was freshly connected to my wifi network.

When opening the mobile application I immediately got a message to update my cams firmware, when I hit update I saw multiple requests passing through:
