I have a Door Contact Senor, which when paired shows up as “Thing”
model: MCT-340 E
Can you please guide me on how i can write the device handler for this?
I am doing this for this first time appreciate your help.
BTW i tried modifying the Type to various contact sensors and none of them worked for me.
“I think” this was paired in a previous discussion, try search.
Thanks for your prompt response, i looked up for “Visonic” and found a lot of threads on that, but none of them helped me based on where i am currently. Can you point me to somewhere i can write a device handler for this specific device. My model has a E at the end
model: MCT-340 E
Thanks in advance
Showing up as a thing means ST found it, but has no idea what it is.
You should be able to go into the ide and change the device type manually.
My Devices->Device Name->Edit->Change type to what it is.
Its a zigbee door contact sensor. BUT its for xfinity so it may be proprietary and doesn’t speak correctly to ST.
Seems like it may work. @dkmcgowan any advice?
So I know I have read on forum the MCT-320 does not work, but the MCT-340 does. I don’t have an xfinity MCT-340, but that doesn’t make sense to me. I’m wondering if it’s any door/window sensor from xfinity? According to Visonic there is not much difference in the MCT-320 vs MCT-340 but they made the MCT-340 low profile.
They both pair the same with the xfinity device and show up the same.
I have close to 20 sensors on every door and window in my house, all MCT-320. It’s the only stuff left paired to my xfinity hub for home security. I would love to use them.
I have an extra MCT-320 and I was able to pair it and set it as an MCT-340, but the red light on the MCT-320 just kept blinking. I tried to use the magnet to complete the pair like you do on the xfinity iControl unit, but no l…
Very i am sure it found it and it uses HA 1.2
i am not sure on how to make the hub make it understand the open and close notifications
Did you change the device handler in the IDE?
Yes i tried the following:
Tyco Door/Window Sensor
Smart Sense Open Closed Sensor
Contact Sensor Capability
Re-read the post I linked and he has the same problem with the MCT-320s.
I don’t have the device. You should post in that thread asking what he did to get it to work.
Thank you, i have reached out on that post. Appreciate your help.
