A new handler was written for this device, but if you decide to use it with an existing device then you MUST remove the device, delete this handler, install/publish the new handler, and add the device again.
Information on the new handler can be found here:
The new version of the handler doesn’t have the delayed alarm related features so if you’re happy with the functionality in this handler then you should continue using it.
This is the Official device handler for the Dome Siren (Model: DMS01)
Alarm Delay works with Smart Home Monitor or you can execute the Alarm both command. The Alarm siren command bypasses the delay and turns the siren on immediately.
10 Chime Sounds
Optional Repeat (1 - 20)
Optional Chime LED
Setup Custom Monitors in Smart Home Monitor to play different sounds based events. (Use the Audio Notification section and choose a Notification from the list or choose “Custom Message” and enter the name. Examples: bell2, chime3, siren1)
See the Using the Dome Siren with SmartThings manual for more information about this device handler and detailed installation instructions. It also has step-by-step instructions for setting up custom notifications with SHM and Speaker Notify with Sound.
Quick question? When setting up the siren to chime when a contact sensor opens (as their documentation outlines on p.6), why would I also receive a notification on my phone when it’s not configured? As you can see, text and push notifications isn’t set up:
So instead of using a custom SHM rule to chime when a contact opens, I used the Smartapp from the Market called “Speaker Notify with Sound”. Set up was almost identical, and it works the same - except my phone no longer gets the notification message
For the life of me, I cannot get this to work. I’ve installed the device handler per the “Using the Dome Siren with SmartThings” documentation, but every time I try to add it to my SmartThings Hub it comes up as a “Z-Wave Switch”.
I have other devices using custom device handlers and they work just fine.
Go to the IDE, find the device in My Devices, and then change Type to the device handler you created. Technically when you add the siren, and you have the DTH installed and published before adding the device, it should use the right DTH.
This device can only play the sounds it comes with.
The only similar device I’m aware of that can play MP3s is the Aeon Labs Doorbell, but it’s not loud of enough to be a siren, the mp3s are limited to 20 seconds, and there’s a 1-3 second delay before the sound plays.
