Zipatile Siren Choose Sound

derelict shared this question 5 years ago

Hi


Does anyone know how i can "trigger" the different siren sounds using a rule ?


For instance... how i can sound the "police" sound when somebody is at the door.

and sound the "ambulance" when i press a button ?


(just examples.. not a real use case).


Device Actions only give me the "squawk" ?!?


Thanks

thanks !

I've seen that Option... will this then just set the "default" sound for the siren ? which means i still have to "turn the siren on" ... and maybe change the default siren sound to something "default" ? .. something like:

doorbell rule:

set siren sound to ambulance

turn siren on

set siren sound to beep

when i press a button rule:

change siren sound to police

turn siren on

set siren sound to beep

???

neither the SET puzzle nor the ACTION Puzzle seem to cause any change.


As soon as i do a "Siren Action ON" i get the Siren Sound.... no way i can change the sound "on the fly" ?!


Any Help or Hints appreciated !

I had the same problem.


Same as you => set door_chime to 5

if you change the number it will not sound..

little bit weird way to trigger the alarm sounds......

here is my rule.....


i added an variable so if the door stays open, the doorchime wont sound every "wakeup" of the sensor.
