Aeon Labs new Z-Wave 6-in-1 sensor is a mini marvel.
With its tapered 42 mm body, the MultiSensor 6 is 70% smaller than its predecessor and it works for up to 2 years before you need to change the two CR123A batteries. The new unit also employs its vibration sensor for tamper protection too.
Other advances include the use of the next generation ‘Z-Wave Plus‘ chip that brings a host of improvements in speed, wireless range and security…
MultiSensor 6 is a part of Aeotec by Aeon Labs’ Gen5 range of Z-Wave products. That means that it outperforms all that has come before it. It’s built upon the latest Z-Wave 500 series chip and firmware, offering a 50% greater wireless range and a 250% faster communication speed over previous Z-Wave products. And, because security is integral, it always has AES 128 bit security encryption built right in.
The 6-in-1 unit is also IP20 rated so you can use MultiSensor 6 outdoors, disabling its motion sensor and using its 5 other sensors.
Aeotec’s new Z-Wave MultiSensor 6 will be available early July for around £50.
