Motion Sensor 2 Design Flaw

This is feedback for SS.  Not good or bad, right or wrong.  I purchased the new design Motion Sensor.  With the original version you could set it on a shelf.  Not this one.  It's back weighted and falls over without support.  This is not described on the product page and differs from the original one.  Now I have to sort out how to support it and make it work on the shelf it was intended for.

Hi @MDH2023, 

There is a flat surface on one side of the Motion Sensor Gen 2 that allows it to stand upright on shelves and tables. When placing your Motion Sensor on a shelf, make sure that the side with the set up button is on top.
