Im sorry did not mean it to come out as unfair. I just merely stated the facts. I wasnt sure which siren to get with the concern that i may not be able to disarm it as soon as i need to. i was made to think i can disarm it with no problem and as easy as telling alexa to disarm it…worse, looks like the DH developer even made it known there was a needed capability switch that they ignored to implement?
anyways, ive moved on, i agree im happy with it too… only thing i might get a powered siren next time assuming this happens again without the siren being disarmed and the battery drains…
thank you again @ron for helping me out with the updated DH
i may be new to smartthings but i did figure out how to have alexa discover devices as i usually have and from there Alexa would be able to turn them on or off… the siren was not on the list because it did not have the capability switch? otherwise more for me learn with automation…and im willing to learn its cool
anyways lets move on.
