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 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.
Aeon Labs Aeotec Multi-Sensor has multiple functions. However, the battery does not last long.
Ecolink and Schlage are almost identical. (Their open/close sensors are almost identical. I assume that they share the same manufacturer.) The battery life is extremely good.
Enerwave has a different design so that we can mount the sensor at a different location from others. For example, if I just want to the motion sensor to be triggered only when people are directly below the sensor. Unfortunately, the support is bad and thus it does not integrate well with other. While some people claimed it could be integrated with SmartThings. In reality, many people including me cannot make it work. Don’t buy this if you plan to integrate with SmartThings.
SmartThings sensors are reasonable in terms of its form factor. However, the battery does not last long. It also has more false alarms than the Ecolink and Schlage motion sensor. There is a way to plug in USB power, but unfortunately AC power or USB power may not be available everywhere.
Philio is a multi-sensor. Unfortunately, it may not be a good idea to have a PIR motion sensor and the open/close sensor on the same sensor. The open/close sensors are often mounted on the door or the window. If I have curtains or window blinds, then the PIR motion sensor will be blocked.
WeMo motion sensor seems very stable. It is sensitive enough, but it did not generate false alarm in my experiment. Furthermore, it uses WiFi network, which is more stable than the Z-Wave or Zigbee network in my house. However, it must be AC powered. This limits where I can put it. Also, any further action/decision must be taken place in the cloud. It is not the best choice.
Aeon, Ecolink, and Schlage allow users to adjust the sensitivity. However, there is no good feedback system for the user to adjust the sensitivities. It requires a lot of tries and errors.
Personally, I would recommend different items for different purposes, depending on whether you have a good WiFi, Zigbee, or Z-wave network, whether you have a good AC power, whether it is easy for you to change battery, whether you want to have multiple functions, e.g., temperature or luminance sensor.
In general, you don’t care of changing battery often, Aeon Multi-Sensor is a good choice. If you don’t really want to change the battery every six months, Ecolink or Schlage is better.
