Does anyone have some examples of their automation to make the piezo buzzer chime when the door opens/closes? I can get the buzzer to chime when the door opens but having difficulty getting it to shut off.

  • Greg,

    Here is the automation I was using with the delay.  It was set to play the chime for 2 seconds, however in reality it was always something like 5 seconds.  However, it became unreliable, and I would have to turn the chimes off manually,

    - id: '1531025654050'

      alias: Opened Door


      - entity_id: group.doors

        from: 'off'

        platform: state

        to: 'on'

      condition: []


      - data:

          entity_id: group.alarm_chimes

        service: switch.turn_on

      - delay: 00:00:02

      - data:

          entity_id: group.alarm_chimes

        service: switch.turn_off

    I posted a message on the other thread with what I am doing now.

    Hope this helps, and maybe someone has a better way to do it than me.
