Aeotec (Aeon Labs) ZW056 Doorbell Gen5 driver

This device just converted to an Edge driver (Aeotec Group channel / Doorbell Gen5 driver) but I can’t figure out how to get it to work. It appears as a switch with various parameters in the settings menu (default sound, play sound, volume etc.) but when activated it only plays the default sound. I have created a support ticket at Aeotec but was hoping someone may have the same device and can tell me what I am doing wrong.

It was previously using a custom DH by krlaframboise which supported [playTrack] commands with arguments for which track to play. Kevin is no longer supporting the device: [OBSOLETE] Aeon Labs Multifunction Siren

The problem seems similar to that of other users with Aeotec devices: Aeotec Siren 6 - Unable to set sounds with edge driver?

zw:L type:1005 mfr:0086 prod:0104 model:0038 ver:1.12

I’m having the exact same problem with my ZW056. Did you ever figure out how to get it working correctly?

Aeotec has released its own custom edge drivers, and their channel includes one for that device. Try that, and if it doesn’t work, get in touch with their support.

@gst and I are both already using the official Aeotec ZW056 custom Edge driver. Since he mentioned that he had already created a support ticket with Aeotec, I wanted to know if anything had ever come of it before I created my own.
