How to subscribe to Linksys Aware

Linksys Aware is being discontinued. Current subscribers can continue to use the service until July 31st 2024. New subscriptions or renewals will no longer be available.


Linksys Aware is a premium subscription service that provides whole-home motion detection for tri-band mesh WiFi systems. You can set a sensitivity level matching your home and lifestyle while also getting notifications when motion meets or exceeds that level. This article will show you how to subscribe to Linksys Aware.

Requirements for the Linksys Aware feature:
  • Latest Linksys app
  • A Linksys cloud account
  • A parent node. The parent node must be one of the following (hardware version 1 or version 2):
  • A0301
  • A0302
  • A0303
  • WHW0301
  • WHW0301B
  • WHW0302
  • WHW0302B
  • WHW0303
  • WHW0303B
Supported Motion devices such as child nodes in your network or compatible smart home devices.
  • You need three or more devices to determine location-specific motion: the parent node (one Linksys WHW03xx or A03xx) and at least two or more WiFi devices (either child nodes or smart home devices).
  • For generic motion sensing, you can use one Linksys WHW03xx or A03xx parent node and at least one or more WiFi devices (either a child node or a smart home device).
  • At the moment, non-tri-band nodes can report motion, but smart home devices connected to those nodes cannot report motion. Only one subscription to Linksys Aware is allowed for one network under one account.
