Aeotec Aeon Labs Doorbell


#1

I think I need a walk through on this. I haven’t played much with custom device types, and I’m not sure how to proceed.
I have a SmartThings V2 hub, I’ve purchased an Aeon Labs Doorbell (not the siren). It’s plugged in and working as a stand-alone doorbell right now. But how to I add it to my ST?

I started by adding a custom device handler using the Aeon Labs Multifunciton Doorbell. Copied the code in, and set the correct location and selected virtual to test with, then ‘Publish’

How do I actually add the physical device, though? This seems like something I should be able to find a walk through on. Maybe there’s one I could follow?
Thank you for any help!

In the SmartThings app go to Marketplace and Connect New Device, while the app is searching double click the button on the doorbell speaker and wait for it to be found and configure it once ready.

Setting the location and selecting test wasn’t necessary, but I don’t think it will cause any problems. Usually I just paste the
code, hit save and then hit publish.

The instructions @dshokouhi posted are correct, but some users have had a hard time getting it to pair securely. If you have that problem, pressing the physical doorbell button will work, but the buttons in the mobile app won’t.

Users with this problem usually get it to work by either pressing the button twice during the pairing process or moving the device within about 5 feet from the hub. If you end up having to move it near the hub, you can move it anywhere you want after it’s been paired, but you might want to run a z-wave repair.

This was exactly what I needed. Thank you! I’m all paired up and everything seems to be working properly.

Thanks! Everything paired successfully on the first try. Thanks for developing the code, and for responding.
