The MultiSensor 6 can be powered by both USB (Micro USB) or by 2x CR123A batteries. The batteries are not included in the packaging. Based on the specifications, the batteries are able to last you about 2 years.
I think I came across Automate Asia in the local news. So when I needed to make my house “smarter”, I decided to engage their services.
Note that this is not a sponsored post, I paid for their services. Just wanted to do a shout out to Mike and the team at Automate Asia for the awesome service with the answers to my noob questions.
For a member’s price difference of S$18, I can get the additional motion sensor, and hence I chose the WeMo Switch + Motion instead of just the WeMo Switch.
