Zigbee KeyFob

Anyone have any luck getting the Almond devices/sensors added to SmartThings? Mine have been sitting on my desk since I bought it.

Thanks!
Jeff

Can the general public buy them yet? It is hard to write a custom device type without the device.

Not that I’m aware of yet…I was hoping that some of the others that had one might have had some luck.

Anyone managed to write a custom device type for these devices yet? JohnR, if you’re able (and willing) to write a custom driver, I gladly send you one of my Securifi motion sensors (SZ-PIR02) and door/window sensors (SZ-DWS02) as a gift.

@raulpesch I would be happy to give it a try. Send me your eMail as a private message and I will eMail you my address. I will be happy to return them when we get them working.

But before we do all that I have a couple of questions. Why don’t you use them with your Almond gateway? I’m really curious about this as I just found out they have a new $99 version of their hub and we have been talking about porting our products over to the Almond platform.

Do you have a link to a good support forum for the Almond ZigBee gateway? The public forums I have found don’t seem to have much in the way 3rd party support or developer information.

That would be great @JohnR. I’ll send you a private message with my email. No need to return them, they’re yours if you have a use for it. I bought the Securifi sensors on eBay and would be happy if I can use the ones I keep (in total I bought 2 PIR and 3 motion sensors). The seller sold these sensors separately. I therefore don’t have an Almond router.

The sensors are recognized by SmartThings but listed as “Things” without any functionality. I like SmartThings so I would prefer to standardize on the ST platform. I don’t have good 3rd party support or developer information unfortunately. Also have no idea whatsoever how complicated it is to write a driver. If it’s a ton of work then don’t bother.

@raulpesch Just came across this today. They have the motion sensor working. I plan on testing as soon as I get home from work.

Did anyone ever get this to work. I found it on amazon and figured for 15$ it was worth a try.

Not that I’m aware of. Only the motion sensor from them is working.

I have managed to get the key fob working. Only 3 of the buttons actually are usable, the 4th is just for joining/resetting the connection

The code is here
