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).

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.
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
9. Then go back to the Settings tab. Select "configure note right now".
10. Close the browser. Reopen new browser and sign back into VERA3.
11. It should now be up and running in VERA3 with a 30 second reset on the motion sensor and a 12 minute poll for temperature, light and humidity. You can play around with variable 111, 112, and 113 for how frequently the poll for temperature light and humidity if you want to extend or decrease poll time.
12. You can change the name of the device by opening the configure switch for the light sensor, temperature sensor and/or humidity sensor and typing in your desired name in the "Advanced" tab "name" box. Then saving in VERA3.
13. Unplug the Aeotec Multisensor from the USB port. Insert batteries.
14. Check motion sensor for functionality; it should trip then reset in about 30 seconds.
Hope this helps someone!
I updated the firmware to version 1.18 and the sensitivity issue seems fixed. I had a hard time getting the sensor working with my SmartThings hub after the firmware installed and ended up removing it from my hub and adding it again. I recommend doing a firmware update as soon as you get it and before you pair it.
The firmware update was easy, just go to the Aeotec website and download it. Then plug the sensor into your USB and open the firmware file.
It does detect legitimate motion, but even at the lowest levels of sensitivity, it detects motion of apparently invisible objects. This defeats the purpose of a Zwave system that texts me each time my home is invaded. Just to verify it wasn't detection motion outside of my windows, I put it in a drawer in my unoccupied home. It continued to detect false motion at least every few hours. I had to turn off the motion detection capacity. The good news is that one CAN change settings for motion, temperature, humidity and light separately. You can also disarm each sensor capacity separately.
I contacted technical support for Aeon. They reported that this is a known issue. At first they reported that they hope to have a firmware update soon. They later recommended I return the device for a refund.
I've kept the device because I still appreciate the other three functions. Perhaps a new generation will be developed, or a firmware update offered. If so, I'll buy or install them!
