I loved the original multisensor, where can I get more?
the new one says it reads acceleration, in “A Closer Look” details.
Ebay still works to get old ones. I don’t like AAAA batteries much but they’ve really held up well. I think they’re still 50% after a year in the freezer and garage door.
Yes, the new Multipurpose sensor has temperature, accelerometer, and contact sensors.
The SmartThings Multipurpose Sensor can monitor whether doors, windows, cabinets, or your garage are open, closed, or have been left open after you leave home. It can also monitor temperature and vibration.
Whoops - I found the answer to my question - no need to use the magnet for a garage door. Here’s the ST support document: https://support.smartthings.com/hc/en-us/articles/205463033-How-to-set-up-the-Samsung-SmartThings-Multipurpose-Sensor-as-a-garage-door-open-closed-sensor
