I recently moved into a house with a wireless doorbell, and wanted to get notifications when it rings. I’m sure others have done this, but I couldn’t find it…
- Wireless Door Chime GE Model 19208… since that is what I had.
- Ecolink Z-Wave Door/Window Sensor (DWZWAVE2-ECO)
- Wire Strippers
(Spend some time with a multimeter trying to figure out the best way to do this… then…)
I opened the Door Chime and scraped off the glue from the LED. I then cut off the LED and stripped the wires. I opened the window sensor and plugged the wires into the contact sensor (red on the right). I then put it all back together, letting the wires just poke out of the top of the chime into the sensor: I just didn’t screw the top screws all the way together.
I used the “MIMO Lite Doorbell Device Type” (pretty much so it would say that it was a doorbell instead of a door) and the “Notify Me When” smartapp.
It works really well! I get notified almost immediately, while the doorbell is still making its noise.
