The features below can be used from the device’s Details screen, Routines, and Rules.
The device has a battery backup and the Power Source attribute changes from “AC Power Supply” to “Battery” when it’s unplugged so if your hub is connected to a UPS you can use this device to detect a power outage.
The switch state changes to “on” when the Siren, Chime, or Custom Sound is activated and the “off” command will stop whatever sound is being played.
Sound (select from 7 options)
Sound (select from 26 options)
The device comes with 30 built-in sounds numbered 1-30 and if you use a microSD card you play your own custom mp3 files numbered 31-125.
Play Sound (plays the specified sound #)
The “Volume” and “Sound” options get stored so unless you’re using different sounds and volumes there’s no need to set it in every Routine.
Thanks for the info on this edge driver! I just hooked this device up to my SmartThings v3 hub and all functions like you show in the images work correctly. The only thing I’m having an issue with is that the device does not show as a “siren” (or any device type for that matter) when attempting to configure a response action in SmartThings Home Monitor. Do you have any idea what could be causing that issue?
This is too bad. It actually doesn’t show as any sort of switch or light that’s controllable by STHM so far as I can tell.
You need to create a virtual light or a virtual siren/alarm, and then trigger this with a separate automation. Sloppy and complicated. I may end up returning the device.
Be aware of the potential for conflicts - if you are also using this as a chime for door open, and have STHM to alarm this on door open, the siren may not fire, even with the virtual option. At least it was not for me.
