New Aeotec siren 6

The speaker companion app asks what you want to do before asking for the device so that can’t be the correct app.

You should see the “Speaker Companion” app in the music and sounds section of the add a SmartApp screen.

Thanks ! I found what is happening, Now Its working, Its about how to program it I tap “Add a Smartapp” / Music & Sound and then only one app is displayed “Asistente de altavoces” something like “Speakers Assistant” I interpreted as that could be Speaker Companion app. But its fields to set up are (translated in English):

  • Control: play/stop/pause/omit
  • Play a notification
  • Play a weather report

If I select “Control:play option” asked for a device, Aeotec speaker is an option, but no chance to “custom message”, this option triggers the default chime programed in your DTH.
If I select “Play notification” then I find the options you told me. Great! Now I can chime the #25 when I get arriving at home to let my daughters know a hero is coming …hehe. Thanks again

I’m not sure if you were following the documentation posted by Aeotec, but it said to use the “Control:play” option, which as you discovered is wrong, so I contacted them and they said they’d update their documentation.

Glad to hear everything is working.

Purchased and installed siren6 in smartthings. firmware 1.5. Installed and activated the DH from Kevin; much appreciated Kevin!. Unable to raise the volume of the siren no matter what setting I use. Strobe works fine and when I pressed the button in the siren the sound is much louder. Also constantly get “a network or server error occurred” message. Try again later". Any thoughts?

Thanks
