Aeotec Z Wave Strobe Alerts Battery (zw080) 1194

Review for siren zwave plus siren strobe

Price was $43.95. Unit is about the size of a two outlet wall plate. When the alarm is active, the white leds kind of circle around and are half-way bright. Good for a visual indicator, but that's about it. The alarm is about the same decibels as a smoke alarm. So you can hear it outside the house, but you'd have to be listening for it. 5 star unit for what it's marketed as. I give it a 4 star though because the battery is non-replaceable. Which means that it'll go bad at some point making the battery backup non-repairable when it goes through its normal lifetime.

This is a great plug in because it continues to work even when you unplug it from the wall(during the alarm of course). However, i'm not sure how long the internal battery lasts.

  • At first i did not know how to work this product and then i bought my window and door sensors and installed them figured out how to pair them with my securifi router and now it works like a charm. Very loud inside but can be heard faintly from out side if door is closed. I suggest you also set one up outside the home if you want to alert neighbors. Product is not outside compatible but if you have a screened in porch with and electric outlet and cover it will work like a charm.
  • This is a good value purchase. This is an inexpensive siren that it is loud enough to be annoying. I bought to pair with smartthings. It was easy to paid and it works fantastic. For my delight, it still works when pulled from the outlet.
  • Order 2 of this item . One of this was returned the same week . The other siren would come on when alarm system is in disarm mode . Don't waste your time with this g4 siren .
  • Pairs but them becomes unavailable shortly after. Then have to remove it and pair again, but the same problem keeps happening. My other devices on the same technology don't have this problem and are further away from the hub.
  • Wish it was louder but it works as described

siren zwave plus siren strobe Aeotec Siren Gen5, Z-Wave Plus, 105dB siren with strobe alerts, Plug-in, Backup battery (Switch to Mobile/Desktop Version)

This thing is loud especially for being about the size of a deck of cards. It works everytime it should and it comunicates seamlessly with my smartthings hub. The only complaint i have with this productis honestly with the smartthings hub as i had some difficulty getting my routines down so that the alarm would disarm before i left for work in the morning resulting in a loud noise that woke up the whole house, exactly what i wanted it to do. So the siren works flawlessly but my smart hub was a little off. The lights are suprisingly bright and can easliy light a hallway. The different siren options are simple and are a little boring but this is an alert tool so that is not really important.

(0) Question: So this device will alarm if a different sensor on your zwave network is tripped? how do you disable it for when you're home? new to home automation

(1) Question: Can you adjust the volume? i'm looking for an alarm that works with smartthings but can be adjusted to a low volume. thanks!

(2) Question: Can you set this to beep or chime when doors open?

Samsung SmartThings Smart Home Hub

The hub was a snap to setup, and works with all of my smart home gadgets. My schlage lock isn't compatible with the hub for lock codes, but that is what introduced me to the wonder of the smartthings forums. There are custom apps and device handlers for almost anything! not only did i get my lock setup, complete with logging/code creation/burner codes/etc, but i was able to setup a raspberry pi relay to open/close my garage right from the smartthings app. The customization ability is really endless! my only knock on the hub is that some of my devices show up as "unavailable" in the app from time to time. Typically this happens to my wifi smart plugs, and it's not terribly frequent.

Smartthings lets you easily control, monitor, and secure your home from anywhere in the world. The heart of your smart home, the samsung smartthings hub will connect all of your different smart locks, lights, outlets, thermostats, and more and let you control them from the free smartthings app. Receive notifications about what's happening in and around your home and use your smartphone to remotely control your home's security, energy usage, lighting, and more. Since smartthings is compatible with a wide variety of smart devices from different companies, once you have the smartthings hub and the free app for ios, android, or windows, you can add as many additional smartthings sensors or other popular z-wave, zigbee, or internet-connected products as you want to enhance your connected home. The samsung smartthings hub works in the us and canada. If the honeywell programmable thermostat was not detected, you may need to reset the device through a z-wave exclusion before it can successfully connect with the smartthings hub. To do so in the smartthings mobile app: 1. Tap the menu 2. Tap the hub 3. Tap z-wave utilities 4. Tap general device exclusion 5. When prompted: 1. Press the system button on the left side of the thermostat's display 2. Press and hold the blank center button until the display changes 3. The first set of numbers/arrows is the "function" section - scroll until you find "rf10" 4. The second set of numbers/arrows is the "setting" section - select 0 5. Press done in the lower left corner to save and exit after the app indicates that the device was successfully removed from smartthings, follow the first set of instructions above to connect the honeywell programmable thermostat. Note: please reference user guide and specification sheet below under 'technical specifications' for instructions on how to add devices and troubleshoot connectivity issues

Samsung Smartthings Smart Home Hub (f hub us 2) FAQ.

In general, i am satisfied with this as a replacement for my legacy x-10 home automation system. X-10 with activehome pro offers a greater level of configuration than this product (i. E. "security" mode - random on/off times around a defined schedule), but z-wave has been more reliable and offers much more in the line of available devices. Oh, and then there's internet connectivity, which has helped me to solve other issues. . I purchased this device in march 2017 and have owned it for 8 months now. I have not had any bad experiences with firmware updates as i read in reviews before i purchased. Samsung has notified users in advance (by email) of updates. -Notice from . Anonymous, Vermont

I waited quite a while before jumping into an iot environment, and only did it at a "discounted" price. I believed after a small amount of research that st seemed like a viable solution, and flexible enough. . After about 2-3 weeks with the device, and some on/off network devices to pair with it- i honestly think it is by far the best value for such a system. At this point, i've yet to suffer any serious outages. . There is some awesome flexibility to be offered when combining this with emulated hue bridges and such.

- H. LorenzThis is the best smart hub period! handles all my wemo products like the mr coffee. So now i have it so when the alexa alarm (alexa set alarm for 6am) goes off it starts making coffee. We can change the morning alarm when ever we want and don't have to worry about re programming the coffee pot. Just one example.

This is exactly what the alexa needs to extend her usefulness! no matter what device i go and purchase, this thing can talk to it, and by proxy, can be controlled by alexa! i used to use x10 devices throughout my house with schedules and macros. Now, with this smartthings hub, i can modernize my entire system with whatever smart devices i want to use.

Works well, love the functionality. need more!

The most versatile device in the samsung smartthings family, this sleek zigbee device acts as a movement, vibration, orientation and temperature sensor all in one. The smartthings multipurpose sensor can detect whether an object like a door or drawer is open or closed; sense when valuable or off-limits items have been moved or tampered with; offer temperature readings; and feel vibration. It requires the smartthings hub. Smartthings offers a one-year limited warranty on this product. Troubleshooting steps: if your device doesn t connect after removing the "remove to pair" tab, hold the connect button while inserting the battery. Release the button when the led is lit. The led will blink blue while attempting to connect. Then select connect new device in the smartthings app. Note: check user manual in technical specification before use.

Samsung Smartthings Multipurpose Sensor (f mlt us 2) FAQ.

I use unit to detect possible theft of one of my 12 volt powered assets from backyard. I mounted sensor magnet section on velcro. I put hole in the magnet section and glued a line to it. That line is attached to ground. Sensor is under asset where no one can see it. Move my asset and the magnet is pulled away and i get an alarm. Enough movement and i will also get a movement alarm. You could mount sensor in a hidden place to fall over if your asset is moved too much and not need line to ground to pull magnet and activate sensor. . ! problem was button battery does not last long. . I pulled sensor apart and soldered wires to + & - . Ran them to a 'drok waterproof dc buck converter voltage regulator 8-22v to 1-15v 5v 12v 3a adjustable output power supply transformer'. Set it to 3 volts and connected sensor to assets battery that has a small solar panel to keep it topped up. I now have a reliable power supply to run the sensor without need for 'button' battery changes. (will work with other power sources with right adaptor) i have one off 120 volt to 3 volt adaptor in attic to control attic fans via st. . Added sensor to alarm for when away and also set up a notification any time for movement or 'open' situation to text me. Someone might be brazen to try during night when i am home asleep. -Notice from F. Hadley, Oregon

The F.A.Q. for aeotec siren gen5, z-wave plus, 105db siren with strobe alerts, plug-in, backup battery

This is pretty loud but not insanely loud. I think in most instances people would prefer insanely loud. We use it as a catch-all for water leaks or home intrusions and unfortunately it can t be heard outside the house. I would suggest getting something louder or using two of these.

A number of questions have been asked here.

I purchased this to connect to my smartthings home automation hub so when the door sensor is armed and the door is open the aeon siren will sound. It was easy to connect to the smartthings hub and it is very loud, you will be woken up if this goes off in your house. Very pleased with the siren.

These would have been great. Small plug in with internal battery backup. The lynx security panel won't pair these to zwave and must use wired or rf siren so had to return

I delayed setting this up, but when i finally did i am pleased with it.

. Alma, Hertfordshire

Works with smartthings but the volume and tone can only be set once for all events. It would be nice to be able change volume and tones for different events. Below are some of my pros and cons, some are specific to smartthings only. But i still like it in hopes of future updates. I will update my review when it works better with smartthings. . Pros:. 1. Small (about the size of a deck of cards but a little thicker). 2. Built-in battery backup. 3. Adjustable volume (smartthings shows 3 levels). 4. Five different tones available. . Cons:. 1. Non-replaceable battery. 2. Cannot do strobe. 3. Smartthings cannot change the volume or tones depending on the event. Smartthings can only set it once in preferences and use it for all events. Hopefully a custom smart app can be written to change this. No longer a con see update below:. . Update: 2/28/16 a new device handler had been created for smartthings that offers a lot more flexibility to this siren. Along with a smart app called rule machine, you can now do a lot more. On the main screen, it allows you to turn on/off the alarm, play the beep tone, play the beep tone schedule, and play the 6 preset beeps. To change the alarm and beep preferences can be changed from the settings screen. Get more info here "https://community. Smartthings. Com/t/release-aeon-labs-multifunction-siren/40652"

Y. Anonymous, Derby says

It does indeed work with the qolsys iq panel. Paired up easily and works as advertised. Although as far as i can tell, there is only one volume/chime style possible with the qolsys panel. Unless i'm missing something. Works good though. Loud enough for what it is.

I. Paula, Schleswig-Holstein

I will add to this review soonest . But wanted to throw this out there to clear up any confusion some of the 'questions/answers' may have caused . . This does work with the honeywell l7000 . This is a z-wave device and will work with the any standard z-wave controller . The honeywell l7000 has a built-in z-wave controller . All you have to do is enroll this as a 'device' and setup a 'rule' and 'scene' as to how it is to react with the l7000 . I use a handful of these around the house . And they react to a l7000 burglary alarm . A second rule has them go silent after a manual or automatic l7000 'de-arm' . The honeywell l7000 is probably the best diy hybrid security/automation controller currently available .

H. Ophelia, Languedoc-Roussillon says

Really loud and fairly bright led lights. Great as part of a smartthings home security setup, which we use to monitor for water leaks all over the house.

F. Nicole, Durham

The siren is plenty loud for my home and serves its primary purpose. I have been unable to make use of the other sounds for other purposes without losing the one already set up. I don't know if this is a limitation imposed by the siren, or by my smartthings hub. I took a star off for the lack of versatility. Otherwise it works well with samsung smartthings and with alexa.

T. Anonymous, Haute-Normandie says

Connected this device to my samsung smart things. I also have aeon multisensor 6. I have setup some rules to trigger the alarm if motion is detected. Tested and it works absolutely fine. Last night there was motion detected in my basement at 3:27am the alarm turned on. I instantly called 911. This product saved my life.

P. Ruff, Darlington

I love this siren/chime. I use mine smartthings and and the smartapp rule machine which lets me take full control of the siren. I can run the strobes and sounds independently of each other and have the same siren chime when someone comes in a door or blast a full siren based on a different event. I was worried it wouldn't be loud enough. But it is! i actually had to move it from the hallway into the dining room because the lowest setting was a little too loud for the door chime in that central location.

Q. Wayt, Hackney says

Pretty happy with this z-wave alarm. I was able to easily integrate this into my smartthings system and ifttt. Works as advertised.

K. Patton, Massachusetts

Nice and loud! the led strob lights are a nice extra. Any burglar will know in an instant the alarm is activated.

L. Anonymous, Suffolk says

Very loud siren and keeps sounding even when unplugged. It has a small mute button on a side but it isn't very noticeable, i really don't think that a nervous thief will go to the sounding siren, unplug it and start analyzing it to see the button. Also it is so loud it makes you just want to go away from it. . Bad thing is that range isn't very good when connected to smartthings. If this were zigbee it would be better than z-wave because there are some mobile phones that make distortions on the signal of z-wave, my brother had a phone that when he was at my place all z-wave devices stopped working.

C. Rochelle, Shropshire says

Works with samsung smart things. It's loud, but not too loud.

W. Jarvis, Manchester

Works so good i wish i had more. . Now i use this with smart things hub to set off alarm when the house is broken in too or my wife does not answer her phone.

. Erickson, Massachusetts says

Compact unit. Can plug into any electrical outlet. Pairs easily with the hub. It is loud but not loud enough for outside to hear it. If you can rig up an electrical outlet outside your home, e. G. Under the roof line away from the weather, you can get another siren for the outside. The benefit is the ease of pairing. The negative is the price. At like over $45 each, it is expensive. For less price, you can setup an outdoor siren that will cost much less.

O. Broyles, Thurrock

Very loud siren. Integrated with my smartthings seamlessly. I like that i can assign different alarms to different events.

U. Rebecca, Mississippi says

Works great with smartthings! this siren looks good, has configurable tones and volume, and a built-in 3 hour battery backup. What's not to like! ? the battery backup means i can place it in a good location without having to keep it plugged into my apc backup, which is tucked away in a corner.

Z. Gilmore, British Columbia

A great alarm that has options for different alarms for different alerts. The alarm volume can also be controlled.

. Carol, Tennessee says

Received this as a gift to pair with smartthings. It installed quickly and easily. I was worried about someone unplugging it if the alarm was sounding, so i installed it with lectralock - baby safety electrical outlet cover - duplex style (single screw type) - medium cover to prevent anyone from removing it easily. This deadens the sound a bit and is a very tight fit, but it is still useful.

G. Benton, Nebraska

Simple setup and easy to use. I was hoping i could also use it as a chime when a sensor is open, but it only operates as a siren. Also, it isn't super loud. I mean it's loud enough to hear clearly in the house and maybe just outside, but not sure it's completely enough to scare off an intruder or not.

B. Rose, Hawaii says

Overall, this works well. Works with my smart things hub . But could be a lot louder. I can hear my slightly on the 2nd floor. Willl be adding a second for placement upstairs to compensate.

Disadvantage and Critical reviews

O. Perez, Poitou-Charentes says

The one shipped to me didn't work. One cannot hear the siren. Returned right away and bought the fortrezz, that one works!

B. Lindsey, Georgia

Had to return both i ordered. One seemed to be dead upon arrival. The other had a low-level chirp that never went away. Really wanted this item to work as it would be a nice addition to my home automation system.

J. Fabian, Mississippi says

This works as advertised. It was easy to install and setup. Due to the small physical size the maximum volume of the alarm is limited so i may be adding another one of these or looking for on that is slightly louder.

Y. Medina, Stoke-on-Trent

The siren is small, and it is loud inside the house. The neighbors may not notice. I had problem pairing it with the samsung smartthings hub. During the pairing process, i tapped on the siren's button a little too long and the hub could not find it. After i paired it with the hub, i unplugged it for a few days while waiting for my other devices to come in. When i reconnected (power on) it, the smart home monitor app could not recognize it. I had samsung customer support help me exclude, factory reset, and re-add it back to the hub after several failed attempts

K. Cecilia, Herefordshire says

Work good for about a month. Now show online but it will not sound.

D. Helen, Idaho

The siren linked to a smartthings hub easily and the volume and tone selection are adjustable via the app. However the volume is not very loud and the strobe light is unimpressive.

A. Annette, Provence-Alpes-Cote dAzur says

Faulted is a normal state for this device, repair of z-wave network does not correct. Unable to follow instructions to remove from network. Removed and threw in the drawer. Not worth the aggravation.

I. Newell, Hammersmith and Fulham

This will work with a z wave alarm system sometimes if the main panel is triggered it wont turn off. Sometimes it also show a malfunction on my system even though it continues to work.

R. Mathis, Oklahoma says

Waste of money. Have smarthings hub and it is always disconnecting. Might be good for day or two. Then have to unplug it and have to reset it. Not worth it !

H. Guest, Virginia

Waste of time. Had problems connecting and then it continually disconnected!

X. Nielsen, Devon says

Worked few times, triggered alarm with smartthings; but now, it does not work any more. No sound goes off when its trigerred.

V. Campbell, South Carolina

Doesn't work well with samsung smartthings. I would reset it and it would work for a few hours or days, but then stop responding.

P. Erickson, Schleswig-Holstein says

Watch out! i bought this 1 month and 2 weeks ago and it just quit. Showing unavailable. Removed and it is sync now.

F. Connie, Louisiana

It sure seemed like a good idea to add an aeotec siren to my vera lite home automation system. Theoretically, it works just fine. We use the vera geofencing capability, so on that day when we both go out to the arboretum the system correctly figures we are in the away mode. The away mode locks all the doors, shuts the garage door, arms all the sensors, and also arms the siren. . So, the aeotec siren has the capability to use three different volumes and perhaps five different voices. Sadly, those capabilities don't show up as menu-selectable items in the vera. More importantly, you can't turn the dang thing off using the vera app. . Sooooo, in the event the housekeeper stops by to clean the house and then opens a basement door while you're hiking in the arboretum, the siren cannot be shut off. Fortunately, she is patient and continues her duties despite the 106 db blare. . I've got several aeotec devices and eventually i can get them working, but their support site is not much help unless you are a hard-core developer. Likewise, vera offers little support of the aeotec siren. For now, the siren is still armed and i've found how to shut the thing off using both the laptop and also the device itself. It's just not as seamless as it should be, or as easy as it is with other manufacturers.

U. Meredith, Salford says

Update: major issues: inconsistent, untrustworthy, unresponsive (even with excellent connection). . Note: the alarm is in the same outlet as a smartthings smart plug/repeater, so it should have a perfect signal, and it appears to have a signal. Other smartthings items are passing through the repeater just fine. This siren, however. . 1. The other day i was testing the alarm and it was not turning on. Smartthings logs showed that the siren was being triggered, but the siren refused to sound. Previously it was working and today it is working. Seems like there's a magic combination of hitting the siren's action button that affects whether it will sound when triggered or not, but this appears to be undocumented and inconsistent. No idea. Maybe just conincidence? . . 2. The siren refuses to turn off 90% of the time. Again, the logs show that it's being sent a signal to turn off, but it doesn't. This is extremely aggravating because i have to physically hit the action button to turn it off most of time, and due to the issue noted above, i'm afraid i'm going to put the siren in a weird state in which it won't sound when triggered. . Original review below:. . 3 stars. . Pros:. 1. It functions well with smartthings. 2. I suppose it's loud enough. 3. It's smaller than i expected (which is a good thing). . Cons:. 1. I don't think that the sound options are any good for home intrusion (none of them really sound proper for intrusions/breakins to me; the only one close sounds like smoke alarm). 2. So far, it's not working well as a repeater for me (i put a zwave motion detector about 6 feet away from this alarm and the motion detector isn't communicating with the hub). . Note: currently, you can't change the sound and volume through the samsung android smartthings mobile app. The option is there, but a bug prevents saving the options. I had to log into my smartthings account on the smartthings api portal to change these settings.

E. Alice, Connecticut

Those 5 tones are ridiculous. I wish there was a tone to deter intruders. . Adding to my review: lowering to 1 star. Stopped working and cannot be reconnected to the smart hub.

Z. Palmer, Staffordshire says

Would need a few of these if i were relying on it to make noise. It's probably better as an alert for opening of doors etc. I think that would require a "smartapp" on smartthings. Com's website to get it working like that since you would only want it to come on for 1 second instead of indefinitely. Haven't gotten around to trying that yet.

S. Irene, Islington

Wish this was louder. Though it seems like its pretty clear it can only produce so much, but i am wondering if there isn't something that could be done to make this better, i could hardly hear from the other floor.

M. Sheila, Hessen says

I expected more for 50$. This product is overrated. I live in a 1200 sqft house which is medium-small sized house. Can barely hear it outside. I doubt even my neighbor across the street can hear it. It's great to wake you up if someone walks in to your house. But don't count on this scaring anyone off. I would need like 3 of these to make it worthwhile. That's 150$. I'm going to look around for a 150$ option. If i find it, i'm returning this. Otherwise i'll have no choice but to buy 3 of these. It's unfortunate as it is very convenient to just plug and play. Also worth noting that it has to be max 15 ft away from the hub which means you can't have them in different spots of your house. Gotta stack them all fairly close to each other.

W. Wanda, Tower Hamlets

Not supported with smart things as advertised. Spent 2 months trying and now i cannot return it.

C. Lorenz, Medway says

It does not work the multi tone and volume feature, i have already searched for instructions on the internet, i asked for support from the vera staff, where i could search for it and the configuration does not work. Disappointing.

Q. Gladys, Delaware

Upon initial use, and continuing in the weeks after, the unit continues to emit a high-pitch noise, audible within several feet of the unit. I have a small house with children running, and would not want it to annoy them as it annoys me when i am in my laundry room (where the unit was installed). Returning the unit. Manufacturer support replied, "this is unfortunately normal for the siren gen5. "

G. Stacey, Centre says

Using it with smartthings. I've had a lot of range issues with it. If it's not within 8-10 feet of the hub it just never goes off. I also tried using it as a door chime, but it just doesn't work very well for that. Works fine as a siren in our living room though.
