How are you liking it? I'm assuming you've tried it out?

Yep.. It's basically the same as the MS6 without the oddball random extra reporting.. 700 series so the battery life should be great..

Those MS6's were too talkative .. I removed them from my mesh a long time ago because of all the "extra" repetitive chatter..

So true I kept them in the network but never really liked them, couldn't physically remove them because then I would have to patch holes I hope they fit in the same recessed mount. Seeing the driver made me totally forget about the new backup feature just released lol.

It's not shipping, but I've been in contact with Chris from their Field Tech office - he does report great range for these things - I like the less chatter - my MS6's have been tuned way down in terms of reporting, but are probably still a major source of issue in my network. Hoping to move them all to the C-7 how that backup/restore is here and see if that at least gets me a more workable mesh until I can move to the MS-7's once they ship.

I have 3 of the Zooz 4-in1 on my C5, and I've had good luck with them, but I've read about how they are not supported on the C7 and can even cause problems on the C5 when you get more than a few. Is the Aeotec multisensor a good replacement? If so, I might get some of the 700 series when they come out.

I have like 6 of the ms6 that I would like to replace with the 7. Really hoping they’ll fit into the same bracket mount for flush mount in celilings snd walls?

I think the MS6's are trash. I have a pile of them in a drawer I won't use. Motion reporting is slow, for me battery life was absolutely abysmal (yes, I reset and paired them while on battery not usb), lux reading wasn't useful for anything I needed, etc. And that doesn't even include that they are way over priced (in my opinion).

Maybe the MS7 will be better. Maybe this time I'll buy ONE and try it out thoroughly before buying more.

what does this do differently then when paired on usb?

My understanding is that when it pairs with USB it acts as a repeater, but it is not a very good one. If you pair on battery, it does not act as a repeater, even if you later connect it to USB power.

Damn, I had to ask, I've wanted to take them out of the network as repeaters for a long time, I wish I would have learned or thought of this sooner now it's just not worth the effort to pair them on battery. Most of the Aeotec products that I've bought usually give me buyers remorse at some point in time or maybe it's just zwave plus 500 series products,700 seems to be good so far.
