As @kuzenkohome commented in the linked topic, most of the sellers do not describe precisely which model (with oor without T/H sensors) they are selling. And seems like most of them are sending the cheaper version nowadays.

There are comments in some other forums that the siren without T/H sensors actually performs much better if compared to the one the provides temperature and humidity readings, in regards to delay between the command sent and the time when the siren starts sounding. But they could be wrong, as the differences in the reaction time are more likely to be related to the powering source - normally the response is almost immediately when ZIgbee devices are mains powered (USB 5V or 12V) . When operating on batteries, the response times may be much longer - up to 6-7 seconds, or some deeply sleeping devices do not listen for commands at all. For Zigbee Sirens, the battery is used as a backup/power failed option only.

Some additional information that I found today on the melodies types:

Sirens Types:
1 Doorbell
2-6 Classical songs
7-10 Alarm
11 Barking dog
12 Alarm
13 Chime
14 Telephone
15 Siren
16 Evacuation bell
17 Clock alarm
18 Fire alarm

Do you mean that if it has temp and humidity it won't work with your driver, or just that your driver won't interface with those capabilities?

The model with the temp and humidity uses totally different ''data points' in Tuya terminology, but it won't be difficult to support both models in the same driver,

Here my doubts are if it is a good idea to declare temperature and humidity measurement capabilities in the same driver or not? Mixing the two models will mean that the Siren will appear in the selection lists of al Hubuitat applications that filter by temp or humidity capability, although the particular model does not report T/H. Unfortunately, HE does not support 'dynamic capability' feature.

EDIT Jan 2023: the models with temperature and humidity sensor are now supported in driver version 1.2.x

Although Tuya may have developed the technology, individual manufacturers who license that technology and build devices might not implement each and every capability that Tuya included. That sounds like what may have happened with the temperature and humidity data. That is one drawback with some Tuya devices.

It may be related also to the global chips shortage nowadays, or simply a cost reduction process... most probably the T/H sensor chip is not present in the newer models.

@kkossev I just received a Tuya Zigbee garage door controller and when I tried to pair it in HE it selected your siren driver.

Here's the pairing from the HE log.

It pairs properly with Zigbee2MQTT

You had the bad luck of receiving a newer model that is not compatible with the ZHA 1.2 standards, but uses Tuya specific ZIgbee clusters..

This is a coincidence - as this new device fingerprint does not match any of the available drivers on your hub, HE selects the closest match, primarily based on the device InClusters list.

Indeed, the Tuya Smart Siren ZIgbee driver is not the correct driver. You must manually change it to another driver that may work with the relay module.

You can try this one: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/kkossev/hubitat-muxa-fork/master/drivers/zemismart-zigbee-multigang-switch.groovy

HE can not compete with Zigbee2MQTT, which is an open-source community project, where dozens if not hundreds of contributors are reverse engineering and adding new products that pop up every week. But even there it takes at least one month before the newly added devices are available in the next update.

Can you post this relay module Model and Manufacturer from the device 'Data' section?

I wasn't really expecting it to be compatible with HE.

I actually bought 2 and upon pairing the second one it selected the Tuya Scene Switch TS004F :man_shrugging:

The zemismart driver did not work.

I was just letting you know it was successfully paired with Z2M, I don't expect HE to compare with Z2M.

Thank you @kuzenkohome , now I realize that this 'Garage Door Opener' is actually a rather different type of device, reporting back the status of the garage rolling door as returned by the additional sensor.
It shouldn't be so much difficult to add it in HE, but will require a new driver.

The HA -> HE integration is working really good, I am also using it for exposing in HE a couple of devices (mostly WiFi) that can not be supported natively in Hubitat. Also for some Xiaomi/Aqara devices (Air Purifier, Smart Fan and MiFlora soil sensors).

EDIT: July 2022
Tuya Zigbee Garage Opener is now supported in Hubitat : Tuya Zigbee Garage Door Opener - #30 by kkossev


Hi @kkossev ,
Finally got the siren device today.
Joined the hub and assigned your driver with no problem.
Thank you for your efforts.
I can control the siren from its device page with no problem.
Seems like I am missing the option to include it in a rule of any kind as it does not how up as a Switch or any other device type. What am I missing?
Edit: I now see it shows up in Hubitat safety monitor and in RM so maybe sirens are only available there?


Yes, seems like Sirens are available for control only in Hubitat Safety Monitor and in the Rule Machine.. I am posting some screenshots below, because I already prepared them : )


Rule Machine:

In order to be able to set any parameter, select 'Actuator' as capability

The possible custom actions for Tuya Siren are:

  • melody : number, 1..18 = set alarm type, can be any number between 1 and 18
  • duration : number, 0..180 = set alarm length in seconds. 0 = no audible alarm
  • volume : string, "low", "medium", "high"

Thanks @kkossev ,
Found out that I can add the siren to the dashboard using the attribute template allows me to see if the siren is on or off, battery level etc.
Did not find a way to trigger the siren on or off from a dashboard.
Adding to my alarm dashboard will allow me to trigger it or turn it off manually when away.
I guess this means the driver should support the switch capability. Can it be done? And if so, I'll be glad if you'll consider this in your future releases.
Thanks again for your work and help.


@amithalp adding switch capability to the siren driver is possible, but I have to think if there may be any side effects of this. As an example, the siren will appear in all HE applications that list light switches...

Meanwhile, you can create a virtual switch and control the Tuya siren from it - see this write-up on a possible way to do it.


Very true.

FWIW, I think it is okay to implement on/off in a siren driver because the built-in siren drivers do include switch capability. Here are the devices with the "Linear/Vision siren driver" and the "Aeotec Siren 6 driver".

Thanks for the info! I usually check the built-in drivers (especially the virtual drivers) for their standard capabilities and commands, but this time seems like I have missed this one.

Do you know what the 'Pair Button' do? Link the virtual button number to the last SoundEffect played by 'Play Sound'?

It pairs an external button to the siren that permits its use as a doorbell.

Do you know how the external button communicates to the siren? RF 433 or similar?
