I need two types of audible alerts for when specific sensors are triggered or whatever conditions i set.
- Short beeps to notify if warning sensors are triggered
- Long Beeping (1 second apart) for X seconds for when intrusion sensors are triggered
Im trying to mimic my current 433mhz based alarm system setup where the panel will produce warning beeps and if I dont disarm in x seconds it will fire up the sirens.
With hubitat, what are good/reliable ways to achieve this?
If ya'l could feedback on some of my thoughts to achieve this, the follow are ranked from my preferred solution to least preferred.
- Is there a Z-wave microspeaker that can be triggered to produce these beeps? I know there are z-wave sirens but those are for the alarms already. What i want are ways to produce just little audible cues.
THIS IS MY PREFERRED SOLUTION as it's flexible and i can setup audibles in every room of the house.
Is there a way to make the dashboard produce these audible alerts? i can perhaps attach a bluetooth speaker to the tablet that will be running the dashboard 24/7
Perhaps i can wire together (or buy) some mini beepers (analog) that beep whenever there's power and connect that to zwave relays (that support DC volts perhaps?) that will control ON/OFF = beeps ....... this pretty much mimics #1 but with analog speakers instead of zwave speakers/beepers.
Custom HTTP API
Im a web applications dev and im thinking of a way to setup a small http server that will somehow produce these alerts....... i reviewed the rule manager and such and it seems the http post/get actions are straight.. but i dont wanna go this route as it relies on yet another dependency
This what i got so far..
