Product Description

The Aeon Labs Multi Sensor is a battery-powered, all-in-one Z-Wave motion sensor, temperature sensor and lighting sensor. When the sensor detects IR changes in front of its viewing window, it will send radio signals to up to six associated Z-Wave devices within its own Z-Wave network. The sensor can report current temperature and lighting levels in the immediate vicinity. Indoor/Outdoor functioning tolerances allow the sensor to function under weatherized conditions. Various sensitivity levels can be configured to avoid unintentional triggering from small animals such as cats and small dogs. The sensor comes with back-plate mounting to mount flat against walls and swivel arm mount to mount on walls. FEATURES: Low battery detection. Firmware updatable in field by end-consumer. Latest Z-Wave protocol and commands. Optimized antenna range - 300ft Z-Wave RF range (outdoor). Ease of use and installation. Certified/Available for USA, EU and Australian markets (FCC, CE, C-TICK, ROHS).

I contacted technical support for Aeon.

I updated the firmware and then paired it with my VeraLite.

The temp/humidity sensors weren't that accurate.

I have a Micasaverde.com Veralite to interface to the sensor. Nobody tells you but the AEON sensor will not work properly out of the box with the Veralite. The first thing you need to do is update the AEON sensor driver to firmware 1.18 using this tool [...] . The next thing you will have to do is login to your Veralite at micasaverde.com and click on the ACCOUNT tab and then the TECH SUPPORT tab. You have to create a trouble ticket and ask them for Beta version 1.5.459 to make the AEON sensor work with your Veralite. If you don't do this you will only see the motion sensor(you will not see the Temp, Humidity and light sensor at all) and it will not work properly. If you know all of this up front it's not too bad but it can be extremely frustrating if you have to figure it out on your own. Once working you can make things happen at set tempatures , humidity, light being detected or when motion is detected. Pretty cool. This is current as of 2/1/2013.

As of 15 October, 2013, Aeotec Multisensor Firmware 1.18 (US) used with VERA3 Firmware 1.5.622.

Aeotec Multisensor seems to work well as a motion sensor; and I do get reports on temperature, light level, and humidity. I am pleased with the unit and have deployed seven. Configuration into the VERA3 is complicated but very smooth with guidance. Build seems okay. Price point seems a bit high to me - shop around.

CONFIGURATION:
1. Download Aeotec Multisensor firmware update from: [...] or do a search for Aeotec Multisensor firmware update.
2. Plug Aeotec Multisensor into computer via USB port in Multisensor battery compartment.
3. Run Aeotec Multisensor firmware update software.
4. Leave Aeotec Multisensor plugged into USB port (for power) and initiate standard Z-Wave add on VERA3.
5. Press "Z-Wave" button on Aeotec Multisensor three times. VERA3 should find and identify Multisensor. Rename and assign room if needed. Save in VERA3.
6. Close browser. Reopen new browser and sign back into VERA3.
7. Locate the Motion Sensor "Switch" and open the box to configure. I changed the configuration to the following:
a. Settings tab: Wakeup interval (seconds); 720
b. Settings tab: Poll this node at most once every; 360
c. Device Options tab: "Wake on battery insert"; Data Size 1 byte dec; 1
d. Device Options tab: "Motion timeout"; Data Size 2 byte dec; 30
e. Device Options tab: "PIR enabled"; Data Size 1 byte dec; 1
f. Device Options tab: "PIR command"; Data Size 1 byte dec; 2
g. Device Options tab: press "Add configuration settings" and in the new box fill in the following:
I. 111 4 byte dec 720
ii. 112 4 byte dec 720
iii. 113 4 byte dec 720
8. Save in VERA3

I got this as an add on to a HomeSeer system and am using an Aeon Labs Z-Stick 2 for adding nodes. I put the batteries in the unit and proceeded to add it to my Z-wave network. In less than a minute I had devices added to measure light (lux), temperature, humidity and motion.

The first thing I noticed was that this thing sucked batteries almost dry overnight. Not sure if the batteries were less than optimal (new, but packaged with the unit), but it does make one wonder how fast this thing will go through batteries.

I've got a calibrated thermometer and hygrometer to measure temperature and humidity. The Aeon unit seems to be off by 3% - 5% relative humidity and off by a few degrees on the temperature. I will have to play with the temperature readings to see if the reading is all over the place or off by a constant amount. If the latter I can always adjust my trigger point up by this amount to get the target I seek. At this price, I know the temperature & humidity sensors in this thing are not going to be as accurate as a calibrated scientific instrument, but I'm hoping it's not all over the place either.

The motion sensor is easily activated by an adult (me) and with the current positioning it is not triggered by small dogs (4 - 7 lbs.). This is a good thing since the dogs have free access to the area that I'm currently monitoring.

All in all I'm pretty pleased with this unit for ease of use and working without any tweaking, but am taking a little bit off for sucking batteries dry. It does what it should do for my purposes, but YMMV.

Updated: I forgot to mention that it does have an internal USB connector that you can use for power if you remove the batteries. With all the low cost USB charging adapters out there I gave it another star. No need to worry about batteries loosing their charge.

I am using the motion detector at my front door to tell me when someone is approaching, and the lux meter to control my outside lights. All three sensors show up fine in Smartthings, and it works reliably.

I installed this in the ceiling above the outside of my front door, and use its motion sensor with a simple PLTC plug-in configuration to turn on the outside porch light when it detects motion at night. It's also neat to be able to see my home's outdoor temperature and humidity when I'm traveling. (The lux level meter is something I don't really need or use.)

It was a little tricky to get all four sensors known to my Mi Casa Verde Vera 3 controller. One of the micasaverde.com forum articles gave me the trick to accomplish this ... and it should be in the Aeon Labs documentation. If you press the Aeon's little black button three times within a second, it tells it to STAY ON for ten minutes, which gives it enough time to handshake with the controller. The default when on battery power is to turn off after only a few seconds, and it's not enough time to complete the handshake of all four sensors.

Another small glitch that has been talked about in the MCV forums -- and I have proven this out myself -- is that if you poll it too often (like every 30 seconds), then the temperature reading will read considerably too high. Apparently the electronics are close to the temperature sensor and warm it up when it's being polled. But that would be silly to poll for a temperature so quickly, and would waste its batteries. If poll it at a reasonable time period (like every five or ten minutes), the temperature sensor seems accurate.

I've had mine running outdoors (well protected from the elements) for two weeks now, and its batteries still show 100%. I'm happy with the purchase.
