IMPORTANT - Please make sure that the model number (located on the back) of the Multisensor 6 is the ZW100 before downloading and performing the update process.


As a part of our Gen5 range of products, MultiSensor 6 is firmware upgradable. Some gateways will support firmware upgrades over-the-air (OTA) and have MultiSensor 6's firmware upgrades packaged as part of their platform. For those that don't yet support such upgrades, MultiSensor 6's firmware can be upgraded using Z-Stick from Aeotec (or any other Z-Wave compliant Z-Wave USB Adapters from any manufacturer) and Microsoft Windows.


Requirements for OTA update:

  • Windows PC (XP and above)
  • Z-Wave USB Adapter (Z-Stick, UZB1, SmartStick+, or other standard Z-Wave USB Adapters can be used)

To upgrade your MultiSensor 6 using a Z-Stick or any other general Z-Wave USB Adapter:


  1. If your MultiSensor 6 is already part of a Z-Wave network, please remove it from that network. Your MultiSensor 6 manual touches on this and your Z-Wave gateway's / hub's user manual will provide more specific information. (skip to step 3 if it is part of a Z-Stick already)
  2. Plug the Z‐Stick controller to the USB port of your PC host.
  3. Download the firmware that corresponds to the version of your MultiSensor 6.

    Warning
    : downloading and activating the wrong firmware will brick your MultiSensor and render it broken. Bricking is not covered by warranty.
