Their MultiSensor 6 (MS6) will now;
Aeotec claims the new MS6 is now 70% smaller and 50% less weight than their previous versions. They also claim you can install the unit with their 2 sided tape from 3M.
The new sensor comes with 3 new installation products.
For the easiest installation, the new MS6 can also be placed on a bookshelf. See if you can find it on the bookshelf image below.
The new shape of the MS6 is sort of cube shaped and smaller at the base. It seems a little hard to mount to corners up near the ceiling, even with the new angle bracket, but we will see when we get one. I do like the new recessed mounting box.
The new MS6 can also be powered with a USB cable for mains power, So if you do not like to change batteries, you can power the device with a power cable.
It seems more and more companies are going to USB power.
The MS6 has an LED to give visual notifications. Apparently you have the ability to turn it off if you do not want the LED blinking.
