Aeotec Siren 6 is FINALLY here


#287

I got mine today too. Though I'm not experiencing that. I should test more when I have more time. Maybe tomorrow. I was wondering, did you include it secure or non secure? I included it secure. Maybe there is a difference.


#288

Are you using yours as a chime when doors open? Also, what door contact sensors are you using?


#289

The reliability will be a lot worse when included secure.


#290

Klaxon is a type of electronic annunciation device. The sound associated to "Klaxon" in the device list is typically heard on military ships, submarines, etc. I used to be a submariner and it was nostalgic hearing it sound.

YF :nerd_face:


#291

Nice explanation man.
Cheers


#292

Where have some of you guys placed your siren?


#293

Mine is in a closet underneath my stairs to the first floor. I did at first want it in sight because of the flash light. But I have a very white minimalistic interior and unfortunately the adaptor cable which sticks out the bottom is black. That is a real esthetic flaw in my opinion.


#294

Do you use chimes for door entries at all?


#295

Yes at 60 volume. Is loud enough to through a wooden door. And from that closet (it's my utility closet) runs a wooden shaft vertically through my whole house (for all cables and stuff). So it kinda transports the sound throughout all floors.


#296

One of the reasons that I bought an extension cable that is white. Completely hides it.


#297

There is a good chance I'll be doing that to. Eventually. But for now I'm fine with the current position. :slight_smile:


#298

As of right now, I have mine at the front foyer table hidden away. I want to find a permanent spot for it. I thought about putting it above the doorbell and running a cable down stairs but I’d have to open several holes in my drywall to do so.

I do however have a spot under the stairs I could use. I assume it would be fairly muffled in there, and to loud when I’m down there.


#299

I hollowed out my doorbell box, used existing wiring to rig a power plug, in the proper size & voltage to power the siren. Removed doorbell transformer and replaced with DC power block


#300

Anyway you could send a couple photos ?


#301

@Ryan780 Did you just replace the black cord with this?


#302

Not "replace", it is an extension cord since the cord on it is so short.


#303

Got it. I was hoping for a solution to have a white cable instead of the black one.


#304

So I’m still getting stuttering with this device. No matter if it’s a contact sensor or a push button etc.

So I’m trying to send an unmute sound to it first. It’s like it’s sleeping when it happens.


#305

An unmute sound? What do you mean? There is an unmute command. But it is not a sound. Also, sending more than one sound command would result in stuttering.


#306

I think the solution is not to make a workaround (making it more complicated) but to find out the source of your problem. I plugged mine in connected it, made a rule to play a chime on button press and it simply works perfect. Does everything work from the device page? If it does, it might be a problem with your rule or with the button.
