Aeotec Multisensor 6 - new entity appeared recently 'basic'

I noticed recently after an HA update that a new entity has appeared for all my Aeotec multisensor 6 devices - these are labelled Sensor…Basic Some of them are in the On state and some in the Off state. In developer tools, I can see this for the values of an On state item.

  - brightness
color_mode: brightness
brightness: 657
friendly_name: Sensor-BR-Bedroom Basic
supported_features: 0

Any ideas what this is all about - I turned one of the off states to On and now cannot turn it off again.

Wondering exactly the same now after updating to the latest Z-Wave JS. Any further thoughts on this, anyone?

This is the thread you’re looking for.

In short it was a compliance code change and if you dont need it disable the basic entity
