How to Replace your SmartThings Motion Sensor Battery

  • The first thing we’re going to do is turn the SmartThings Motions Sensor over and open it.
  • You will notice at the top of the back that there is an ‘Open’ marking. Slide this in the direction of the triangle arrow.
  • Put your thumbs on each side and slide it open. The SmartThings Motion Sensor battery may come out with the magnet backing. This is normal.
  • You will find a CR2 3V Lithium-Ion Battery. You will need to source another one from your local hardware store, electronics store, or the links below. The CR2 3V Lithium-Ion Battery is usually found in cameras, GPS monitors, and other motion sensors. These batteries can easily be confused with CR123 batteries, which are slightly bigger than the CR2.
  • Replace the battery and then put the cover back on, noticing the tabs and the holes. It should only slide in one way.
