I won’t be converting this DTH into an Edge Driver so it will stop working once the Groovy platform is retired.
This is a DTH for the new Neo Coolcam Siren (NAS-AB02ZU) which has a blue led.
IMPORTANT: A lot of the posts in this topic mention that the device is not supported in the new mobile app’s Automations feature and that it requires the Speaker Companion or Smart Lighting SmartApp, but the version released on 9/13/2020 should be fully supported.
Instructions for playing chimes in the new mobile app
Open the device’s settings in the mobile app and change the “Switch On Action” setting to “Do Nothing”.
Go into Automations and create a new one.
Configure the “If” section that will trigger the chime to play.
Select the device from the “Then” > “Control Devices” section and tap next.
If the “Dimmer” option is disabled then change “off” to “on”.
Tap Dimmer and specify a number between 1-10 which will be the sound # that plays when this automation is triggered.
The Siren Sound setting has a “Strobe” option that will turn on the LED without playing a sound.
The Switch On Action setting allows you to choose what the siren does when it’s used like a switch and turned on.
The Slider tile allows you to play the 9 chime sounds.
You can use any SmartApp to play the sounds by selecting the device as a dimmer. (Dimmer levels 1% - 9% plays sounds 1-9, level 10% plays sound 1, level 20% plays 2, level 30% plays sound 3, etc.)
This handler should solve the duplicate chime problem.
First of all, thanks for another great handler.
I have 2 questions that i don’t know if you can help me:
1- Do you know for what the Chime matters?
2- I use this siren in case my door sensor is triggered, but i would like to know if i can use it also with the Neo Coolcam water sensor (with a different sound from the one i use for security).
The water sensor is connected to a Z-Wave motor and when the sensor detects water, it send a command for the motor to close the water tap. Then, i receive a notification on the Smartthings Classic app but i would like to have it triggering the siren with a specific sound and volume.
Just one more question:
How can i use the SHM in “Stay” mode for setting it to trigger the siren with only a beep and a lower volume when my sensor detects that the door was opened?
If i go to the security option, it doesn’t let me configure the Away and Stay mode independently.
I just purchased NeoCam Siren Alarm (green lights, not blue). Used your device handler above and published in IDE with no issues. Paired siren to hub, via classic app. Configured siren. Went to set up a custom monitoring rule. Got all the way to the end and went to “audio notifications” and my siren is not listed. Any clue why? all i want to do is for it to chime when contact sensors are opened. Please help
Hello Sir. I recently purchased from Amazon a Neo Siren Alarm for my Smartthings System. Copied your code from above and pasted in IDE. Created, saved and published. No issues. Paired with Hub, no issues. Shows up as Neo CoolCamr Siren. Went and configured siren with no issues. Went to set up a custom monitoring rule. No issues. At the very end I went to audio notifications to enable siren. I was NOT listed as a source for audio. Any ideas? All I want this siren to do is chime when a door sensor is opened. Please help and thanks!!
I think it’s 100%, but it might be 90%. It should be easy enough to test.
The model with Red LEDs doesn’t have a silent track so it doesn’t support strobe. I wrote the handler using the model with the Blue LEDs so I know that model supports it, but I’m not sure about their latest model that has Green LEDs.
Hi, I have the Zipato version of this, NE-NAS-AB02Z.EU from Amazon. Picture is blue, but I got red LED.
Was wondering if this can be modified to work with it somehow. On the basic Z-Wave Siren, this device only work on and off but not the other features such as the chime etc. I would have like to use it as a door bell too.
At the moment, using this handler the device is showing as off when it’s on, and when pressing one of the buttons such as “strobe” it was working with the siren too. Any ideas?
Hi, Sorry if this dumb question, I am newbie to smartthings.
I am trying to get the coolcam siren working in smartthings but cant seem to find it in the app when searching, I have copied all the code to new device handler saved and published. I have tried to use various ways of finding the device but it still cannot be found.
Please help, what am doing wrong, do I add it as a generic z-wave device or a light bulb or a switch…?
