I am not of the coding kind. Will this be available some how for someone like me that does not do this? An easier explanation of how to put this in Hubitat and will there be any future for controlling the bulbs?
You can ask the devs in the thread I linked to. For most things like this, you’re not really coding anything yourself. I don’t know how to code anything either, but I can usually follow instructions. Some projects have more detailed write ups than others though.
Since Hubitat supports zigbee and z-wave switches, bulbs and plug-in modules, I’m not sure how likely it is there will be built-in support for all the different WiFi switches.
Community efforts like this can always fill in the gap, but may require some degree of DIY skill.
As for your siren, have you tried to pair it to the hub yet? There is a listing of supported devices in this forum, I don’t know off hand if Dome shows up on it.
You find the driver for a device in its settings page. Many devices are assigned the correct driver when they pair, but some can still work if you change the driver manually. That’s just selecting the driver in a drop down menu.
There’s some example code they’ve published on the website I think but not full drivers.
I have the siren already in and I forgot to mention that it is the template for the dashboard that I can't find a match for. There is no entry in the drop down for siren. I will take another look at the link. Thanks
That's true. I don't know why you would want to enunciate different tones from the dashboard, but one way to do that right now would be making a bunch of virtual switches that then trigger the appropriate sound on the device.
True about the tone choice on the dashboard I didn't think about that one. Chalk it up to being new with this. I also now noticed that when I tried to bring the siren back into the dashboard it wasn't listed as a choice. What causes that?
EDIT: I found the cause, I needed to add it to the actual created dashboard itself. Thanks
The Dome siren allows you to pick which sounds you want to use as your announcement tone (or beep) in the edit device page. You cannot choose different sounds on the fly with the native driver. You can simply preview them via the edit device page. Once you have selected which tone you want for your "beep" and which you want for your "siren", then you can activate the beep through RM on the controlling music device page and the siren is just the on/off, if you want to do it manually.
Unfortunately you cannot change the selected beep or alarm tones from the dashboard...at least that I know of. The only place you can edit them is in the device's settings on the edit device page in HE. So, there is no need for a dashboard template since this functionality doesn't exit.
But I would like to ask...why do you need control of your siren through the dashboard? Isn't the whole point of a siren to go off when something has happened you don't expect to happen?
