Door Chime
« on: December 13, 2017, 10:49:12 am »
Looking for an idea on how to set up a door chime when my doors are opened.  I have installed the sensors and looking for ideas for a chime.

What speakers are you intending to use?

I am personally using a TTS to announce which door has been opened through SONOS.
openLuup (97 devices, 134 scenes, 20 apps) controlling HomeAss + VeraPlus (138 zwave nodes, 8 Zigbee nodes, 205 devices, 20 scenes , 2 app) Bridged to Homekit and Alexa. VeraPlus ExtRooted!

If you are looking for a stand-alone Z-Wave chime, the Dome siren/chime works well. It has 10 preloaded sounds ranging from a doorbell to various alarms, in addition to a traditional warning siren with LED strobe. It's battery-powered and can be installed using the included double-stick foam tape. It pairs without issue and is fully integrated with U7.

The aeotec doorbell has several tones and chimes and can be loaded with mp3s for whatever sounds or announcements you want.

Fyi, it does require luup to control the mp3s.

Good solution and I like Dome products.  I just wish the VeraSecure siren was as functional...

Long Live UI5!  (OK finally made the switch to UI7 in January 2018, and am pretty happy....)

Check this post. It uses the Aeotek doorbell and is a very good option, requiring just a little bit of code to make it work. Full instructions included in link.

I probably should have mentioned that "fully integrated" with UI7 means that the device has direct control over the sounds via "pushbuttons"---no coding needed. When including the chime into a scene, you can select the desired sound from the built-in "pushbutton" controls.
