After seeing on these replies I am still amazed there are no real Zigbee equivalents. I may not be able to drop z-wave after all. I love my Aeotech Multisensor.
I would only use the Lux sensor to determine the default dimmer levels. In the evenings it would be darker and darking the day it would be brighter. I would never use Lux inside for both on and off. Only for default settings.
The one Aeotec that I have is connected to power and yes I agree. It has been rock solid. Its worth every penny. I was just hoping there was a Zigbee equivalent.
In the exact same boat I have them only because they can be contacted to power and repeat and it's really annoying that there is no zigbee equivalent. I have been informed that there may be a powered one being designed/built at the moment though so hopefully that's happening soon and it would be ZigBee 3.0.
I've been (slowly) replacing my MS6 with Aqara ..... I find that an Aqara Motion Sensor (motion & light) and an Aqara Environment Sensor (temperature, humidity and pressure) can combine to work as reasonable replacements for the MS6.
Obviously it's a compromise, but price makes a lot of difference if you're kitting out many rooms! And having two separate devices means you can locate each one optimally for its specific purpose.
I bought this zigbee multi sensor and I will receive it in a few days.
Which driver should I try to use with this sensor ?
We don't have a driver that will accommodate everything this device offers.
We have drivers that cover temp/motion/humidity and temp/motion/illuminance, but not all 4 together.
I also buy this sensor, but I tried all generic drivers, and I can only see motion status. Which driver I should use if I want to use motion+temperature+illumination?
Hue motion sensor drivers have those attributes, not sure if the built in driver will work or not.
Unfortunately with Hue Motion it doesn't work at all, even motion not work.
That's the only "zigbee" built in driver I know of that does illuminance. The "Generic Zigbee Motion/Humidity Sensor" driver does the other three Mike mentioned above but not illuminance, if that doesn't work either I'm out of suggestions.
All 3 Generic zigbee motion drivers report only motion status (and battery).
Also when I discover this device, it has 3 endpoints....can this be the problem?
On the generic zigbee motion/humidity driver, you will need to wait at least 5 minutes to verify no humidity, the device regularly reports this every 5 minutes unless there is a drastic change from the previous measurement. It may not show the device details upon immediate pairing, but when the device updates in 5 minutes it should if it is going to.
If no go this it sounds like they probably won't do it.
We don't have a driver that exposes everything this device is capable of producing, without me having a sample to investigate I can't speculate what the issue is or isn't, but it's unlikely the multiple endpoints are the problem.
Hello is it anything new about driver for this sensor?
Same situation with mine, only motion status.
The 4 sensors are updating. I'll check at different times and compare it with other sensors I have here.
