1. A system, comprising:

  • an integrated housing including sensor electronics operatively coupled to an analyte sensor, a portion of the analyte sensor extendable through the integrated housing at an insertion position selected from a plurality of insertion positions,wherein the insertion positions are each defined by a discrete aperture and spaced apart in a base portion of the integrated housing, and wherein each insertion position corresponds to a different insertion site across a skin surface indicated by the integrated housing,wherein the integrated housing is configured to mount across the skin surface at the plurality of insertion positions, andwherein a transmitter unit of the sensor electronics is configured to be selectively disabled after a predetermined time period has elapsed since coupling to the analyte sensor; and

    a sensor introducer assembly coupled to the integrated housing, the introducer assembly configured to position at least the portion of the analyte sensor under the skin surface at the selected insertion position.
