Aeon Key Fob


#1

Hi. Im fairly new to Smartthings. Im trying to set up my Aeon Key Fob to disarm and arm my alarm. It has 4 buttons on it. It paired to smart things and i used the smart controller smartapp and told it to disarm the alarm when i push button 1. Seems like it should work, however when I push the button nothing happens. Has anyone used the key fob to disarm their alarm before? If so, can you help me get mine set up? Thanks!!!

I don’t know about your device but you might look over at this thread with a less expensive Zigbee Key Fob to give you ideas about how to do that. I used a different smartapp Button Controller Plus to trigger the appropriate “I’m Back!” routine (Home Actions)

Hi. I hope you solved your problem with the keyfob. Just in case you didn’t and for other new users of the keyfob I’ll explain how I got it to work. I had the same problem and I found the only way to solve it was to use a smartapp called Button Controller. Smart Lighting or routines didn’t do a job. Button pressed and nothing happened. In Button Controller do not try to make automation directly for a particular button (eg 1 or 3) but go for a whole keyfob and the app will ask you what to do with each button in four steps. And then it works. In the app you can set a button to run a routine previously created or directly turn on lights etc. I hope this helps.

wish someone could help me . . 18month ago I set up a AEON key fob using the smartthings Aron key fob example, not a problem using button controller. Now it will not work . . so I have discovered Jordan Rejaud fixed version device handler . . no problem it works again. So two unused keyfobs out of bag, now smartthings finds them as “working Aeon Key Fob” devices! . . .so for all smarthings finds the aeon and wants to call it Working AEON . . it will not show any events when key pressed, it behaves as though its straight outa box . . now factory reset, relearmed, deleted from smartthings, deleted from Zwave devices . .now spent 28hrs solid without sleep . . give up. . .so can this community help me???

yes yes yes . . fixed, Smartthings support . .
