Hi Chris. I would like to give a try for my Aeotec Siren 6 with its Edge Driver … , I had no found any in Aeotec Edge drivers official list, where did you find it ?..and how its still working for you ?
Hi my friend, Im struggling with this, I got paired the siren, assign its Edge driver, doorbell button its working, tamper is working, door open (security) Sound 7 is working within automation when a door is open, but how can I stop it ? for example, I would like to make 2 seconds chime and then sound off, sound still playing until I stop it in the device control in the app. Or how can I turn on Emergency siren because an intrusion but only for 3 minutes ? THANKS !
Perhaps Aeotec should get off their ass and create a specific driver for this device as they have for all other Aeotec devices. The stock driver doesn’t cut it here…the stock dth was far more useful and this device has been crippled. This on top of the fact it is z-wave which is a dying technology are the reasons I won’t recommend Aeotec to anyone.
I have the exact problem as you. Have you solved it?
This is driving me crazy, why the heck did they change this device, its useless now.
If i cant get it to work soon, all my aeotec is going down the trash.
No warranty so i can get my money back on this and it wasnt me who made this useless, it was aeotec.
Hi my friend. I had solve it. With old DTH the handling was very wide and full of options, but with new Edge driver you only can set 8 different sounds in the driver (sound + volume), you can activate or deactivate them in automations. Each sound is handled as a different “device” then activate or deactivate them, also you can use this status in the IF part of automations. So in my case to handle sounds I did something like this:
Automation 1: IF Door X is open THEN Activate SOUND 4
Automation 2: IF SOUND 4 is activated THEN deactivate SOUND 4 2 seconds later.
I know this is not the most beautiful handling but it works, now I got all my old functionality. I hope this help
@Johan_Ostlund We had a similar problem in which we couldn’t get the Siren 6 Sounds to fire off. In brief, each of the sounds had a field set to “null”, rather than “on or off”, so the Siren 6 Device Card would never become fully enabled. Here’s what we did to solve the issue:
I’d imagine this would be because the plugin in the app used to be rather too keen on attributes being non-null and so it became a convention to use so-called ‘synthetic events’ to initialise the attributes. In mid-January these synthetic events were removed from all the stock drivers on a temporary basis. I assume it is because they were making a nuisance of themselves in the migration process. The plugin would seem to have been changed to use ‘This device hasn’t updated all of its status information yet. Check again later.’ as a more graceful way of handling the null values until they are populated naturally. Presumably it is considered that any disruption to fresh joins is less damaging than the disruption to migrations. As ever, an explanation of the plot would have helped.
@orangebucket Thank you so much for that background information! It sure makes more sense as to what we were dealing with in the link referenced in my prior post.
It’s worth noting that the Device Card “did” initiate the “Device hasn’t updated…” pop-up. (see screenshot below). The problem was, after days of trying to refresh the card, it never did initiate and we had to force it alive
