One tiny device packed full of intelligence.
A smart home is only truly smart when it’s intelligent. A smart home has to offer more than a schedule; it has to react to what’s occurring in a home in real-time. MultiSensor 6 is the foundation of a modern smart home; within its perfectly small exterior lies all the technology for real-time intelligence.
Motion for security. Motion for presence. Motion for management. MultiSensor 6’s motion sensor is perfect for more than just an intelligent security system. With a 5 metre range and a 120° field of view, MultiSensor 6 captures motion data that can be used for everything from security to heating management to energy saving. Knowing if a room is occupied or a hall is being used is a powerful piece of data – MultiSensor 6 makes your home automation system more powerful and more intelligent.
From motorised curtains and windows to fans and thermostats, there are a lot of ways that you can use Z-Wave to keep the temperature of a room absolutely perfect. MultiSensor 6 provides the intelligence to do just that. Within each sensor is an incremental temperature sensor capable of accurately measuring between -10~50°C (14 to 122°F) and reporting temperature changes back to a smart home gateway.
Automated lighting is only as smart as the system that powers it. With MultiSensor 6’s real-time, digital light sensor measuring the level of light in a room, your home control system will be able to intelligently maintain its ambiance. From opening and closing curtains, to setting lights to be the perfect level be it day or night, MultiSensor 6 is the smarts behind smart lighting.
Spaces such as bathrooms and kitchens can be too humid, while some environments are often not humid enough. MultiSensor 6 offers incremental monitoring of a humidity ranging from 0% to 100%, allowing for the intelligent automation of fans, motorised windows, dehumidifiers and humidifiers. MultiSensor 6 monitors your home on such an infinitesimal level so that your home management system can make your environment truly perfect.
It measures the environement it’s in, and it also measures itself. MultiSensor 6 contains a seismic sensor capable of detecting and reporting event-based vibrations. Those slight changes can be used to protect MultiSensor 6 – it’ll know if an intruder is tampering with it or if the sensor has accidentally moved from its place of installation. They’ll also be able to detect seismic activity within your home.
Perfectly managing an environment means understanding it perfectly. MultiSensor 6 accurately measures ultraviolet light; the kind of light that causes everything from furniture bleaching to eye damage. Measured inline with the World Health Organisation’s UV Index, MultiSensor 6 measures a room’s UV level so that an environment can be managed through curtains, shades and lighting, and so that health and property recommendations can be made.
There are MultiSensors and then there are MultiSensors. MultiSensor 6 isn’t just a redesign of Aeotec’s most intelligent sensor, it’s a complete reengineering from the inside out. We didn’t just tweak our first Multisensor, we redefined it.
Now securer, MultiSensor 6 offers tamper protection, constantly monitoring itself to warn of movements or attempts to prevent it securing your home.
As it secures and monitors your home, MultiSensor 6 is now itself secure. Communication between the sensor and your Z-Wave network is now encrypted using the AES-128 bit data encryption.
Further and faster, MultiSensor 6’s wireless signals now reach 50% further, up to 150 metres, and 250% faster.
For superior accuracy, MultiSensor 6 can be calibrated for every room and every environment with manual calibrations wirelessly available for its temperature, humidity, light and UV measurements.
Forget changing your batteries a few times a year. MultiSensor 6 now works up to 2 years before you need to change batteries offering 4 times the battery life of the first MultiSensor.
We’ve searched the world for the best sensors to power its 6 sensors. MultiSensor 6’s specialist sensors are now sourced from leading companies in Switzerland and the USA.
Four different AAA batteries have powered past MultiSensors. Despite doubling the battery life of MultiSensor 6, we’ve reduced the number of batteries that power it down to just 2.
Easier to install in all sorts of ways, MultiSensor 6 weighs 50% less than the first MultiSensor making it installable even with double sided tape.
Wherever you are in the world, MultiSensor 6 speaks your language. Imperial Fahrenheit joins Celsius in the new sensor.
Measuring light between 0 lux to 30000 lux, gone is the analogue light sensor with it replaced in MultiSensor 6’s with real-time, digital measurements.
Sometimes smaller is better. Completely redesigned and reengineered, MultiSensor 6 is 70% smaller and 100% more elegant.
Amazing things come in smaller packages. MultiSensor 6 offers 6 different sensors, with UV and vibration sensors joining light, humidity, motion and temperature sensors.
Because it’s capable of capturing so much useful data and offering so much intelligence to your smart home, there are a lot of places you might want to install MultiSensor 6 within your home. Yes, the traditional ceiling-corner location is one of them. But because it’s now 70% smaller than previous MultiSensors and weighs only 74 grams, MultiSensor 6 can now be installed almost anywhere.
Used as a beam sensor, MultiSensor 6 will monitor confined spaces and corridors up to 5 metres wide.
How small can MultiSensor 6 be? Install it in a ceiling using the recess mount accessory (sold separately) and MultiSensor 6 will take up only 1.2cm of space.
Perfectly graded at just 3.5°, MultiSensor 6’s tapered sides make the perfect installation as simple as placing it on a shelf.
The traditional motion sensor gets an intelligent upgrade. MultiSensor 6 can be installed up to 5 metres off the ground with a 120° motion.
Creating an object designed to secure and manage your home takes precision. It also takes subtlety. MultiSensor 6 is perfectly small. Its beautifully tapered, 42 mm body allows it to be used anywhere within the home, but its design and styling hasn’t been crafted simply to be attractive. A squared based allows MultiSensor 6 to offer a battery life of over 2 years, the best of any Z-Wave motion sensor. Rounded edges distance MultiSensor 6 from the ocular, security camera styling of the round MultiSensor we pioneered and that feels invasive in this age of privacy.
MultiSensor 6 has been designed to be more than beautiful; it’s been designed so that its presence in a room is never obvious. Subtle is smart.
WIDE AT THE BASE
The perfect sensor comes with the perfect accessories. MultiSensor 6 offers with 4 different accessories and tools, each designed to make the installation of the sensor perfect for your home.

There’s small, and there’s perfectly small. MultiSensor 6 is the latter.
It’s possible to engineer devices to be too small, limiting their functionality and creating performance and safety issues. MultiSensor 6 avoids all that, offering the perfect balance between form and function.Within its 42mm body sit 5 different PCBs, 6 different sensors and the capacity for over 2 years’ of battery performance. Better still, MultiSensor 6 includes a perfectly engineered antenna that can accurately perform up to 150 metres / 492 feet point-to-point.
Sensor technology gets more impressive every day. Your smartphone benefits from it, and now your home can too.
MultiSensor 6 has been precision engineered based on a very simple premise: for a smart home to truly be smart it has to be intelligent. Really intelligent. Around that idea we’ve built a sensor that offers your home 6 key points of intelligence that Z-Wave smart home systems can use to make truly smart decisions.
And then we made MultiSensor 6 even better.
Use outdoor intelligence. When installed in a waterproof & anti-condensation enclosure, you can use MultiSensor 6’s non-motion sensors outdoors.
