So in the new edge-driver beta i found out the Aeotec Siren 6 is also supported.
Got it working and it now runs locally (great!)
Although; now i cant get the sounds to change…
I can use the preset sounds in routines… but it will always play the doorbell tune at home alert/fire detection/leak detection…
What is the corect way to do this? I tried pretty much every button/combination… but the sound stays on the standard doorbell Chime.
I don’t have the device but it looks like:
Send sound and volume configuration to false/off.
Component name you want to change.
Send sound and volume configuration to true/on.
I don’t think it matters when you set the ‘send’ preference to false, as long as you end up toggling from false to true.
omponent name you
Yep; got it to work… The trick was in following your steps in “Setting sound and volume off/false” … then changing settings… Then set send sound/volume true/on again…
Edit: It’s not very intuitive… because the logical thing seems to “Just set and forget”…
The following list still applies, but use the steps discribed above by
@orangebucket to set the sounds if using the Edge driver.
Browse - also the main/parent sound control of Siren 6
Tamper - known as sound 2 in the list of controllable devices, this controls the sound/volume played when the vibration sensor or tamper sensor is triggered (when you move the Siren 6 too often).
Button one - determines the sound/volume of button one when pressed, or when Sound 3 is controlled from SmartThings.
Button two - determines the sound/volume of button two when pressed, or when Sound 4 is controlled from SmartThings.
Button three - determines the sound/volume of button three when pressed, or when Sound 5 is controlled from SmartThings.
Environment - determines the sound/volume when Siren 6 receives a environment type z-wave alarm command. (ie. smoke sensors, CO2 sensors, etc)
Security - determines the sound/volume when Siren 6 receives a security type z-wave alarm (ie. motion sensors, door sensors, etc)
Emergency - determines the sound/volume when Siren 6 receives a emergency type z-wave alarm.
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 ?
Thanks in advance my friend…!
I believe it’s supported as a Z-Wave Siren in the Beta Edge Driver Channel here;
As a part of the SmartThings Edge Beta, we are previewing a set of device drivers (Edge Drivers) managed by SmartThings that can be used with some of your Works with SmartThings devices.
These drivers will be made available with our new Driver Sharing feature for device testing and community distribution of Hub Connected devices. Previously, sharing Groovy Device Type Handlers (DTHs) required end-users to copy and paste the code for each individual device into their accounts. Now developers and users can create, share, and consume drivers outside of the SmartThings App with a unique URL.
Things to Know
