Multi Sensor as garage door tilt sensor

It definitely works,   but like I said the online literature only mentions the classic app.  Since this is a "new" sensor and they are migrating the new hubs to the new app,  I would think it would do this in the new app...   just wanted to confirm.

Since when? There is a bunch of stuff that doesn't work still in the new app? Maybe, but I use the new hub exclusively with the old app.

Due to delay and reliability problems with the tilt sensor from what I've read, most people end up just using the sensor as a contact sensor with the garage door. Mounting it directly to the door using a bracket if need be, and the other half to the wall. Is there a reason you specifically want the tilt function over the contact sensor?

I thought you had to initially use the new app to setup the V3 hub to begin with

Perhaps, I don't remember that at this point (maybe I did?). I know all my automations and such are setup in the old app, I don't even have the new app installed. Until they make it do what the old app does, I don't see a reason to use it.
