Possible to change mode and SHM state in IDE?


(ecksomperudenlign) #1

Is a slow Friday and got me imagination going:
I am heading home tonight, as I get closer to my apartment. A robber jumps up from nowhere and took my phone and ran away.
I have no other tablet or mobile device I can use to disarm the ST. I do have a computer at home. How can I disarm ST and stop the siren from continues blaring in IDE?

Smarttiles gives a link that can be used on a PC. It allows you to change modes and disarm.

If the mobile app is down, you could run into the same problem with the alarm so you should look at your alarm documentation to see if there’s a way to manually disable it.

You could technically use a SmartApp to turn off the siren using the simulator in the IDE, but it’s not something you’d be able to run quickly.

There’s a SmartApp called SmartTiles provides a web interface, but I think there’s a problem with that app at the moment that ST is working on.

You may want to get a button device like the Aeon Minimote that you can use as an alternative way of setting and disarming the alarm.

I started the SmileTiles, can’t seem to find a way to add the Aeon Siren. Thus, can’t turn it off if the siren starts blaring.

Yeah, I cannot find a way to add the siren either. I was referring to being able to change the mode. You can do that, which if the siren is tied to the mode (or arm/disarm), if you change the mode, that in turn should turn off the siren. Others may have better ideas, just something I thought of that might help.

This definitely help !!:slight_smile:

Unfortunately in this scenario, the alarm would have been tripped before I got to my computer. Once the alarm is triggered. The video will start recording, alarm will start blaring. Can’t make it stop…

Gotcha! I was under the assumption that once the “system” was disarmed or mode changed that it would trigger to turn off. I don’t have a siren myself so this is good education for me for when I get one. :grin:

I just found and tested successfully to put the Aeon Siren as “Switch” in the SmartTiles. You can turn it on and off that way :slight_smile:
