I have an alarm system that is old but wireless. It’s still works but i would like to tie it into smart things.
When i looked at the specs the frequency was almost the same as Zwave - 868.35, i appreciate that z wave is 868.42 but i’ve dug into this to find our that the zwave devices tend to run at 868.35.
When i put the sensors into discovery mode/transmission mode, smartthings cannot find either the PIR or the magnetic door contact.
I have tried creating a device handler but have no idea how i tie the old devices to the device handler i have created. (a simple one from template)
Here are the details
|Tansmitter Backup||3.6V ½ AA Lithium Battery|
|Current Consumption||25mA (transmission), 10µA (standby)|
|Antenna||Built-in Internal Whip|
|Transmitter Frequency||868.35, 433.92 or 418MHz FM|
|Transmissions||Alarm, Low, Supervision|
|Gases Detected||Methane, Propane, Butane|
|Dimensions||L-65mm x W-30mm x H-16mm|
Any help would be appreciated, am i wasting my time trying this? Are these actually ZWAVE?
