Zwave Chime / Bell ?
« on: September 02, 2013, 10:48:36 pm »
Does anyone make a simple Zwave controlled Chime or Bell?

Or does anyone have a simple solution (simple being no more than 2 devices to create it)?

Instead of Z-Wave you can use an iTach relay ... and the GC100 plugin.

that would work, but the itach solution would make a very expensive chime.

This chime looks like a good option if we can find a less pricy way to trigger it...

Now that I think about it... I may get a hardwired chime (like this one http://www.build.com/air-king-ck110-white-single-note-dual-entry-unlit-door-chime-kit/p441491) and plug it into an appliance module.

It is amazing to me this 'simple' device does not already exist in Zwave or Insteon.

If I correctly undertsand what you wish to achieve, there is a zwave-bell available from everspring, and different approaches to your problem have already been made in this forum.

thx Chixxi, I was searching a ton for door chime and door alert but not doorbell... thus, the Everspring TSE03 Doorbell never came up. Also, according to this thread http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php?topic=11145.60 , looks like that device is a PoS ;-)
