tl;dr: It works, it does what it says, it works with SmartThings without any custom device handler nonsense, but has short range and pairing instructions don't work.
I bought the temperature/humidity sensor by itself. It pairs with my SmartThings hub and is detected as an Aeon MultiSensor 6. This means that the device will display in SmartThings as having 6 different sensors, but only two of them (temperature and humidity) actually work and the motion sensor will continuously report motion detected.
Despite it being detected as a completely different device entirely, it does report temperature and humidity and the default device handler allows you to adjust reporting intervals which can save battery life. The temperature reporting registered a couple degrees higher than my other temperature sensors nearby, humidity appeared to be fairly accurate.
My biggest complaint is that the range on this device is fairly short. I bought it to monitor the environment inside a beehive, but it's unable to reach the SmartThings hub inside the house (about 60 feet through walls) and it won't hop through the z-wave door lock on the back door (about 30 feet with line of sight). This makes it completely useless for the application I bought it for without buying a z-wave repeater, which more than doubles the total cost. The short range is most likely due to limitations in the 900mhz z-wave standard itself so I'm replacing it with a zigbee alternative.
The only other complaint is that the instructions to re-pair the device if it drops off or if you need to rebuild the z-wave mesh topology do not work. While troubleshooting the range, I tried to re-pair it and ran into this problem. Flipping the switch on the back 3 times did absolutely nothing. Through some trial and error, I found that flipping the switch 3 times then holding it down a 4th time for a few seconds got the LED to light up and dim slowly, and releasing the switch after about a second when the LED dimmed put it into pairing mode, which you can confirm by the blinking LED.
It's not perfect but if you need an inexpensive humidity sensor that works natively with SmartThings I can recommend this. Just make sure you've got a strong, established z-wave mesh within close range of where you want to use it and don't use it for any critical applications that depend upon highly accurate reporting.
