The Siren from Philio (PSE02) is sold as a multi sound device, but to make it play other sounds it has to receive a NOTIFICATION_REPORT. This report is normally sent out from a sensor such as a PIR or door/window-sensor. That means it's possible to e.g. play a Door Chime sound when a door/window-sensor is opened.
When sending a SWITCH_BINARY_SET (which is the default command that will be sent to this device from TellStick ZNet) will only make it play the default emergency sound.
In order to play other sounds, a NOTIFICATION_REPORT has to be sent out from TellStick - that can be done from a Lua-script.
We've put together a script that can send out the NOTIFICATION_REPORT when a device (or dummy-device) is turned on, it's available here: https://github.com/telldus/tellstick-lua-examples/blob/master/zwave/Philio/Siren.lua
Previously we hinted about more hackability and features in our new generation TellStick. It is now time for the next step, plugins.
With plugins you will be able to extend the functionality of your TellStick even further.
TellStick already supports a great amount of both Z-Wave and 433-devices already, but it is possible to integrate other types of devices available over the network. How does support for Philips Hue, Netatmo, Sonos, and Eliq sound?
We are ready for real world testing of plugins for TellStick ZNet Lite (v1/v2) and TellStick Net v2 and need you to help us test it.
The beta test is open for Pro users only. [[beta:6 Sign up here]].
