Aeotec MultiSensor 7 uses Z-Wave Plus V2 protocol technology to connect to your smart home hub or gateway. This protocol supports wide compatibility with a broad range of smart home devices and hubs. It is also compatible with SmartThings. However, a Z-Wave Hub is required for installation and you need to make sure that your hub supports all the features of the sensor.

This smart sensor is part of the Aeotec Gen7 range of Z-Wave products, meaning that it is built around the latest Z-Wave 700 series chip and firmware. This provides a 50% greater wireless range and a 250% faster communication speed than previous Z-Wave products.

Aeotec MultiSensor 7

The MultiSensor 7 is packed with features that make it a versatile and useful tool for monitoring and automation of your smart home. It combines 6 functionality in one device:

Temperature. The sensor measures temperature at a range of -10°C to 50°C and with an accuracy of ±1°C. It can display measurements in both Fahrenheit and Celcius. You can connect the sensor to your fan or thermostat to automate temperature control in your home.

Humidity. The sensor measures humidity levels between 20% to 80%RH and with ±5% accuracy at 77°F. Maintaining the right humidity is important for preventing mold growth and ensuring your family's comfort. You can connect the sensor to a humidifier or dehumidifier for automatic activation when needed.

Light. The sensor measures the amount of light in the room in lux, ranging from 0 lux to 30000 lux, with an accuracy of ±3%. This feature can be used to turn on lights automatically when it gets dark, or to automate curtains and blinds.

Motion. The built-in motion sensor has a 120-degree field of view and can detect motion up to 10 meters away. This can be used to turn on lights when someone enters a room, or as a safety precaution that can detect suspicious motion when you're away from home.

Vibration. The Aeotec MultiSensor 7 is equipped with a seismic sensor capable of detecting and reporting event-based vibrations. This feature is useful for monitoring the movement of valuable items, such as paintings or antiques, or detecting if an intruder is tampering with the sensor.

UV. The sensor measures the UV index in the room, with a range of 0 to 11. Monitoring UV light levels is important for protecting your family's skin, preventing eye damage, or protecting furniture from bleaching.
