I won’t be converting the Zooz S2 Multisiren DTH into an Edge Driver so it will stop working once the Groovy platform is retired, but the device is WWST certified so it should be somewhat functional with the built-in driver.
IMPORTANT: A lot of the posts in this topic mention that the device is not supported in the new mobile app’s Automation 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.
Connect to computer to load up to 100 short wav files and adjust the volume. Comes with 37 built-in sound files.
Sounds can be played by # using the switch level capability (dimmer).
Custom Switch On Action setting allows you to choose what happens when the device is used as a switch.
Sorry Tony, the Zooz website is being rebuilt and all of the new products will be added within the next few weeks. In the meantime, you can direct any questions here: http://www.support.getzooz.com/new
just got this siren… WOW, its big and very solid one… I like it.
the only question: do you have a text script of included 37 sound files?
its little bit annoying to try to remember by checking them every time.
I just got the siren and it is beautiful, a nice design for a modern home. And very solid feeling, well done!
Thanks for the great custom DTH, as well!
I know this probably depends on a custom DTH or maybe even the hub’s capabilities, but is there any way, or in the future maybe, a way to use more than one sound?
For example, assign a sound to a door opening, and a different sound for a doorbell chime, a third sound for water leak, etc…?
If you select the device as a switch/dimmer, the 99 tracks correspond to the 99 dimmer levels. Unfortunately the built-in apps only support values in multiples of 10s so you have to re-organize your tracks so that the sounds you want to play are numbered 10, 20, 30, etc.
I also released a new version last night that allows you to play the sounds in SHM and Speaker Companion.
Select the device from the Audio Notifications section of either app, choose Custom Message, and then enter the track number you want to play. Unfortunately If you play the sounds using this method they’ll be delayed by a couple of seconds because of the way ST handles the audio notification custom messages.
Sorry guys, we had a couple of firmware versions circling for this one and turns out the library does have 37 sounds in the end. See below for the full list and once again, our apologies for the confusion!
Is it possible to set this device handler to show as a chime and to specify which mp3 to use for it as well?
EDIT: **I have it working with Speaker Companion. I set the volume to number 16%. However, Speaker Companion doesn’t give an option for an action for an unlocked door. Is there a better Speaker Companion you recommend to get better use of majority 37 pre defined standard library sounds? **
I would be so grateful if you could share one of your settings for an action that performs for your S2 Multisiren and the SmartApp to use for it.
Thank you for a great device handler!
P.S. What are the numbers listed in settings beneath Enable Debug Logging??
If you connect the chime to a computer you’ll see an option to change the volume of the chime. There are 3 volumes and it defaults to the loudest setting. Changing this setting will not effect the siren because the siren only has 1 volume.
You should be able to play the sounds with any SmartApp that supports audio notifications if you choose the “Custom Message” option and specify the sound # as the message. It works with Smart Home Monitor, but I’m not sure if that has a door unlocked option.
It also works with CoRE and WebCoRE and those apps allow you to play sounds based on pretty much any event you can imagine.
