I just bought this device brand new from Amazon. I’m using the iPhone app (v188.8.131.52) and it paired easily (browsing to select the exact Aeotec product by model name) and everything seemed ok.
Now, when I tap the tile it opens and only Tamper Alert and Sound two are “populated” … everything else is grey. I’ve followed the various instructions on configuring, and it keep popping up saying “This device hasn’t updated all of its status information yet. Check again later”.
I’ve gone into settings, changed the “Component name” to different values, set the Volume, and picked the Tone … toggle the “Send sound and volume configuration” (a pretty lame UI feature?) and then gone “back” and nothing happpens. No changes. Everything grey except the two above.
Power cycled. Tried all sorts of configuration changes. Nothing. The device is 15 feet from my hub.
Anyone else seeing this with the current product? Ideas? Suggestions?
It utilizes Automations to force the device to update its status on the Siren 6 or Doorbell 6 allowing you to use all 8 endpoints of the Siren 6. You’ll need to trigger each of the endpoints 1 by 1 and this will permenantly fix your Siren 6 on SmartThings UI until you unpair and re-pair the Siren 6.
Pair the Siren 6 into SmartThings
Go to Automations tab
Tap + at the top
Select “Create Scene”
Select + Actions → Control a Device → Siren 6
Chime = Chime
Enable ONLY chime.
Name the Scene and Save it. (i named it “Fix Siren 6”)
Play the Scene once (it should ungrey main)
Now Repeat these steps for Sound3 - Sound8
Go to Automations Tab
Tap on the Scene that you created
Edit the Action of the Siren 6
Disable the previous scenes
Now enable Chime ONLY for the next sound. (Sound3, 4, 5, 6, 7, or 8) - We skip Sound2 as this is likely already enabled due to it triggering on its own by physical touch.
Click on Done
Play the Scene once
Note - Once you get to Sound6, Sound7, Sound8, you will need to go to the Siren 6 page and turn Sound 6/7/8 OFF as these sounds will play indefinitely otherwise.
So there were three different things that I learned here:
There is an initialization bug in the current driver that will be fixed in the future.
You MUST use the Android app - not iOS/iPhoneiPad
Sounds 6/7/8 play forever! I noticed this, but did not realize it was a feature!
Hi my friend, Maybe you want to switch to try in an Android device, I am using Aeotec Siren 6 sharply with Mariano Edge Driver, at the beginning with mi iPhone all settings and automations let all functions, but some weeks ago for the THEN part of automation there are no options to set any sound (only MAIN feature of the siren), when I tried again in an Android, (because Mariano advice) then I found the 8 sounds options again. So this probably could make some problem while you are setting the device, I hope this helps.
That sounds like it may be a side effect of disabling the ‘synthetic events’ used to initialise attributes in the stock drivers. ST did that as a temporary change a while back, presumably because they were unhelpful when devices were being migrated.
