New Setup for panic button and siren

I am new to this and want to get started small.

I would like to do the following:

  1. Press a panic button
  2. Send message to iPhone
  3. Have siren beep for 5 seconds
  4. Reset and wait for next push of panic button

I am getting a Smartthings hub, a aeon panic button, and a aeon siren.

Any suggestions on how to accomplish this would be appreciated or maybe point me to some good tutorial?


Rule Machine would have been perfect for this but it’s not avail as of last night:

If you haven’t already bought the siren and panic button, you could get both of these features using the Aeon Labs Aeotec Doorbell which sells for about $50. The device can play up to 100 mp3 files so if you later get door sensors you could play messages like, “the front door has been opened”.

Either way, the custom device handlers below should make things easier for you:
