Considerations affecting the number of required Minut Smart Home Sensors 

The number of devices you need for a property depends on its size, the layout, and what level of coverage you want. For example, if noise monitoring is important to you, you should consider installing a Minut in each room that you want to monitor closely.


Smaller apartments up to 50 sqm typically only require one Minut. The device is best positioned in a central location of the home, such as the hallway or living room, as it provides the widest coverage. If your apartment is split into two floors, we recommend getting one device per floor.

Single-floor properties

For properties 50-70 sqm one Minut is typically sufficient. For noise detection, we recommend placing the device in a common area, like the living room.

If you have two entrances, and to achieve the best coverage with the security alarm, we recommend placing one device at, or close to, each entrance to ensure the motion sensor covers the area.

Houses with multiple floors

Similar to single-floor homes, the first Minut should be installed in the hallway or close to the main entrance of the house. Typical installations have one device per floor, but this may vary depending on your requirements. 

Additional areas to consider

For more fine-grained monitoring, here are other common areas to consider: 

  • Attics
  • Garages
  • Basements
  • Wine cellars
