Just to comfirm, is this is the correct repo:

Hi, new to the community-
Just getting started and have played a bit with the classic app and my dome siren to set notifications.
Meanwhile the new Smartthings Connect app released. Debating if I should just start over from there. Based on below though Dome device handler is not ready for new app. Right now Connect app shows the Dome Siren but cannot connect.
Is this correct? Should I continue with Classic app and wait for support in new app with Dome siren before moving over to the new Connect app?

(Jimmy) #167

Continue with Classic. The new app doesn’t work with custom device handlers yet.


Deleted and re-added both the device and handler 4 different times now…this is what keeps coming up for me. I honestly don’t think I’m doing something wrong, but…am I?


Grr…I knew I’d find it AFTER posting…just a few posts up is a screenshot of the Device Settings…my device type defaulted to Z-Wave siren. Changed to Dome Siren and all good now.


Was that my post? :wink:


Thanks for doing this, I just got one of these and it really helped. The PDF instructions need updating as the sound automation handler as changed name, UI and how it works. I was still able to figure it out for my needs.

One concern I have is that this custom device handler results in the siren/chime being handled by the cloud vs. run locally. I’m noticing a delay in my doorbell chime triggering but also this leads to concerns about reliability for something as critical as an alarm. Is there any way/hope for this to be ever run locally for faster response and more dependability?


I recently realized my Dome Siren had disappeared from both my SmartThings app and the developer dashboard, a third time, I believe it is not a coincidence. I do experience device dropout but never had device disappear? After they drop other devices still show last known state.


Please contact SmartThings phone support and they will fix you right up. I use Dome products in my house for a while now and they are stable.

Does the TTS speak function work? I am using v1.2.2 DTH and trying to get the unit to speak out when a door opens/closes. Tested with Webcore and SHM Custom monitor and everytime it is suppose to speak a phrase it does a bell chime.

The device is a siren that can only play its 10 built-in sounds.

The only reason the DTH supports the TTS related capabilities is so you have a way to play those 10 sounds using the built-in SmartApps.

How can I add different chimes to open door, leak sensor, etc?
I did it with stringify but I can’t really chose which sound I want. Is there any smartapp that I can personalize?


I think you can do this in the Smart Home Monitor.
Under Configure (gear icon at top right corner), you can create multiple custom configurations that play different sounds.
For a given configuration, choose Audio Notifications
Select Audio Player = Dome Siren
Then experiment with the different Notification settings. They will trigger the different sounds that are available.

Thank you!
It worked like a charm :slight_smile:


I can confirm if dome siren drop because of dead battery or connection issue, there will be an error if you try to visit the device screen after device health mark it as unavailable.

Further more, after the error occur, the device will silently disappear from both developer dashboard and the smart things app.

@krlaframboise I was bale to add the device handler and it come up as the dome Siren. however it does not come up with all the different sound options. any ideas on why. I am new to the SmartThings world so i could totally be missing something and i’m not a coder by any means.

(Jimmy) #182

Sounds like it has the wrong handler assigned to it. Check the device type assigned to that device in the ide.

(Rob ) #183

Like I said i’m new to this all where do I do that? i saw that on another post but can not figure out where to change that.
