Has anyone made Device Handler for this? Smartthings V2 finds it fine and thinks it’s an outlet, but it does not work as intended.
That’s an interesting device, I assume it’s the same one that Xfinity and Cox use?
In any case, it is typical for a siren to be viewed as a generic on/off switch. What other functionality is missing?
It should have strobes too. But it does not work. I searched this forum, but found no answers.
OK, to get to the strobe feature it will definitely need a custom device type handler. Hopefully someone who has the device will chime in, I don’t recall it being mentioned before.
If you’re interested in trying to create a custom code yourself, the following thread is the best example I know of of how to go about that for a zigbee device:
The strobe as designed will flash on a burglary and stay solid if triggered by fire. The LED that blinks will give a status of the system: green = ready, orange = zone open, red = armed.
The other ability it gives is a ZigBee repeater and provides a tamper button - which will trigger the alarm if armed.
It would be useful if someone can get them to work. These are functional with iControl, I guess their platform is called “Open Home”.
If someone does make an attempt, I don’t know if there is a way to bridge the language open home uses into SmartThings???
Anyone ever find a DTH that works with the SMC zigbee siren?
