Aeon Doorbell Type Beta

[quote=“techvudu, post:424, topic:28889”]
Never has my bell worked from the app regardless of how many combinations of code I have tried in the past months.
[/quote]Thanks, I’m glad it’s working for you.

I just released a new version that includes those changes and some others.


OK, I’ve researched for a while and not finding my answer so I’m just going to ask here. I already own the Aeon Siren and was wondering if the Aeon Doorbell can also engage the Aeon siren when someone rings the doorbell? I see the manual discussing associations but I wasn’t sure if that was the same idea?

Considering buying it but didn’t want to if it can’t include that. Would allow me to have multiple sirens upstairs/basement/garage to hear if someone was at the front door. Thanks!

I’m not sure if you could do it through association, but I know you could easily do it with Rule Machine. All you would have to do is create a Trigger for Button 1 Push and have an action turn on the other sirens. The only problem I can think of is that the sirens may take a few extra seconds to go off.

Those instructions are for the Aeon Labs Aeotec Multifunction Doorbell DH, but you could do the same thing with The Aeon Doorbell Type Beta DH by using Switch.on for the Trigger or Condition instead of button push.

Ok, I’m using Rule Machine so that could work. However, is one the doorbell chime sound and the siren the normal siren sound or can those align to based off of doorbell or alarm.

I don’t have a Siren so I’m not sure what kind of options that has, but you can load up to 100 mp3 files on the doorbell. The Doorbell DH allows you to set different tracks for the doorbell, siren, beep, and play commands and you can also play specific track numbers by setting up Custom Commands in Rule Machine.

I rec’d my doorbell today, Super excited to try this! I have wanted it for a long time! Now I just need the IDE and Mobile app to come back online.

Since you can’t do anything with yours yet, you may want to review the documentation for the 3 available device handlers. That will give you a better idea of which one you want to use and it will save time because you’ll know the workarounds for the known issues.

Any Recommendations on where to look at that? Or is it just in this thread?

This thread has all the information for the Aeon Doorbell Type Beta.

Here are the links for the other 2 device handlers and their first few posts have the latest version and full documentation.

Aeotec Doorbell

I forgot to say thank you, I have it all hooked up, and it appears to work. All I am using it for rite now is a door bell, and I use it to alarm if a door is left open.

Hi all. Has anyone got this doorbell working in the uk at the moment. I’ve been looking but can’t find a uk version of it?. Would love to add this to my home. Thanks in advance

Unfortunately it is not yet being manufactured on the UK Zwave frequency, so it will not work with the UK SmartThings hub.

Does anyone have any idea as to y the doorbell just seems to be turning it self off? It was working perfectly for months… Then recently people come to my door push bell and nothing happens… Then if I go to speak to press button on it, bell will ring when pressed… But then it just stops working again?

I can’t seem to figure out y.

Can I connect two buttons to one speaker?

Not directly, but the other DTH allows you to play any track number from any Smart App that supports the Music Player capability, so there’s really no need to do it directly.

Still having a problem understanding how the MP3 files are supposed to be organized/named in order to know what track is what number on the doorbell. I have tried to label the individual mp3’s with a number at the beginning starting with 02. but that doesn’t seem to be the right order that the track play on the doorbell app. I have a silent mp3 track that I copied first onto the Doorbell. That seems to be working fine.

Just not getting the rest organization down…

thanks for any clarification!

Copy all the files to a directory off the device.

Format the device.

Use a folder ON YOUR COMPUTER to organize your files.

Name 01, 02, 03, 04 etc…

With additional information if you like such as 01 Silent, 02 Door Bell, etc.

Then select all files in this management directory and copy over to the doorbell.


Sweet! thanks for the clarification.

Hi Ron,

Wondering if you can help as I see you posted you are doing all of this from a Mac as well. And I had everything working great (Bell, DH, etc…) using the default sound files. Now, I cannot play anything (total silence).

  1. I’ve setup a library in a local folder on my Mac.



  1. I successfully formatted the drive via terminal using: sudo diskutil eraseDisk FAT32 AEON MBRFormat /dev/disk3

here is the diskutil list output:
/dev/disk3 (external, physical):
0: FDisk_partition_scheme *126.9 MB disk3
1: DOS_FAT_32 AEON 126.8 MB disk3s1

  1. I copied the first silent file over

  2. I then selected file#2 and shift selected file 99, and copied everything over

Hi Ron,

Your commands were key. All I do is select file 1, then shift select file 99 and copy over onto a deleted AEON folder. then run rm -f ._* to remove all the hidden files. It ends up leaving all the files in perfect order.
