Step 1 - Pair your siren with your Smart Things application.
Head to the Smart Things application and select “Things” .
Open the back of the Utilitech Siren and press the cylindrical grey button in the center. This will queue the device to pair.
Back in the application, there should now be a new “unknown device” in green. Hit the back button to return to the “Things” view.
You should now see your new device there, but it will be labeled as a switch. This will cause problems when trying to sound the alarm from the actions of other Smart Things. Luckily, we can change how our Smart Things Hub views our devices. If you see you Siren as a switch, then :
Step 2 - Edit your Siren online.
On the internet browser of your choice, head to ide.smartthings.com. Then sign in with your existing username and password.
Select “Devices”. This will show a list of all Smart Things associated with your account. Select your Siren. It will still have its default name unless you changed it previously.
Scroll to the bottom and select “edit”.
Select the “type” dropdown box and select SmartAlert Siren.
This makes your hub believe that the Iris alarm is now the SmartAlert Siren. It will now show up in your smart apps that are compatible with the SmartAlert Siren.
