I recently purchased a Z-Wave wall plug and a 120 VAC piezo buzzer (3 KHz) that I want to use as a door chime. When any door contact is broken, I want the plug to turn on (activating the buzzer) for 2 seconds then turn off. The shortest “turn off” interval using the Lighting Automation app is 1 minute.
Can someone point me in the right direction how to find an app to do what I need? I am a programmer by trade (Perl, PHP) so I’d happily try my hand at developing an app to do this, but I’m a Smartthings newbie and have zero experience with this environment.
No Android devices (iPhone only). I’d rather have a dedicated chime that’s loud enough for everyone in the house to hear. In my previous house, I had an old ITI Caretaker system. It used the same 3 KHz tone from a piezo buzzer as a door chime. I guess I’m just used to hearing that particular sound when doors open.
