I received my 24 zone kit yesterday, and have it installed and connected to Home Assistant.  All of the zones are working, including my two Piezo Buzzer's.  I only have three issues :).  I am focusing on this issue for now.

I can't figure out how to change the tone of the Piezo Buzzer, the instructions say to use the Smart Lighting control, however I believe that is in SmartThings.  Is there a way to do it in Home Assistant?


I have built an automation that turns on the buzzers when any of the doors are then turns off the sound a few seconds later.  Is there any way to make that more of a chime instead of a single tone?


Thanks.

  • Ditto for me.

  • I was wondering the same thing.

  • Could you share the automation for the buzzer? 

  • Could you share the automation for the buzzer? 

  • Will be adding native support for the buzzer and configuration of the pulses soon.

  • Paul - Would you mind sharing your automation for your buzzer. I am having issues getting the automation to stop buzzing after a few seconds.

  • Sorry for the delay.


    The automation used a delay step between turning on and then off.  However, it started to be unreliable, and I was having to manually turn off the chimes.  My wife was getting pretty annoyed.


    So I changed the automation to  turn on the chimes when one of the doors open (if the chimes were off).  Then a different automation to turn them off when the doors close (if the chimes were on).  This seems to have solved the stability problem, plus it forces the family to close the damn doors.  If is really hot here in Texas right now, and it is better to keep the doors closed.  :)
