Aeotec SmartThings Motion Sensor, Zigbee
Third Reality 3 in 1 multifunction night light with motion sensor and lux.
I’m a huge fan of this. Comes in both Matter and Zigbee versions. The Zigbee serves as a repeater. Due to its style, the plug can be extended via USB. It’s fantastic and very versatile!

BeSense Zwave Ceiling Motion
Haozee / NEO Coolcam Z Wave Plus 700series PIR Motion Detector
Best Zwave 4-in-1 multisensor I've ever owned. Unfortunately a bit hard to find (outside of aliexpress).
CentraLite Micro Motion Sensor, model 3328-C (Amazon [US], CentraLite)
Made by the same OEM as the beloved Iris V2 sensors and not too dissimilar but still actually available.
Aeotec Zwave TriSensors are pretty hard to beat for speed, reliability and battery life.
I’d like to nominate ESPresence sensors, but I have to run them in Home Assistant and import them into Hubitat via HABridge.
