Errors on Aeotec Siren 6 with

BTW, the first error you posted above IS a Rule 5.0 bug, identified and fixed. Fix coming.


Is the new hot fix going to be out today? I'm Going out of town tomorrow have to decide if I need to rollback or wait for the fix for my sirens

Should be today...


There still appears to be some strange behavior in the Siren 6 New driver even after the latest update. For example, the tamper state never goes back to clear after it is detected. No apparent errors in the log but it doesn’t revert.


I've had something like this for weeks.
One of the kids closes the front door too hard and the siren(actually doorbell 6) on the wall next to it gets jolted.
I have the tamper set to silent, but it blinks white for ever until I go in manually to stop it.

I think that may be a firmware fix though, I haven't been adventurous enough to update anything from what it shipped with.

I thought I should chime in here. 🤦

Our Siren 6 has been doing this weird thing where it's almost as if it falls asleep and gets stuck. No response randomly but then if I unplug it and push the button on the back it comes back. Very strange.

Just happened again. Got it responding again and less than 10 minutes later it's out again

I have had 2 of these completely fail on me now.. I won’t be buying another..


Ouch. That's a ridiculous failure rate.


I’m actually using an ecolink 700 series chime/siren now..


Mine is still working but I don't have it doing anything important - will definitely keep an eye out.

My old Aeotec Gen5 siren is still working great. I like that it has custom chimes you can upload. Interestingly the earlier issues where the sounds would sometimes repeat seem to have gone away for the most part.

Is it available for sale anywhere yet?

Not sure..

Yeah didn't see anything out there yet.

This is our 3rd. Where did you get that Ecolink from?

Engineering sample to write the driver.. :wink:.. I’m actually surprised it’s not out yet.. I’m sure it will be soon.. If I had to guess, chip shortage delays, based on how long the alliance listing has been up for it..


Please update your list. It's my go-to for new gear :slight_smile:


Updated.. I'll have some more updates to the list soon..


It looks like it's perfect alternative. I like the style that sit right on the outlet. Also like the 30 sounds plus sd card.

Yea.. And the driver will read the custom sound names and add to the chime soundEffects JSON
