Magnetic sensor and firealarm
« on: June 25, 2018, 09:32:52 am »
Hi

I have this setup: Vera Edge, Fire alarm, water/temp sensor, lamp and now a magnetic door sensor.

When I open the door the fire alarm goes of. How do I fix this annoying combo?
I want my lamp to turn on when the door openes, thats it.

Do I use Multi-channel associations?

/M

A simple scene will turn the light on when the door is open.
Not sure why your alarm is triggering when the door is opened. Try looking at the fire alarm scenes to see if it is being triggered by some unknown scene.

Hi

 I?v created a scene that when the door opens, the fire alarm is disarmed and the lamp should start.

 It does not care about this, I can even disarm the fire alarm before going inside and it still starts to shout.
A bit frustrating that I can?t controll what my fire alarm is suppose to do.

See attached screen shot for reference.

Select Dashboard>My Modes. Scroll to "What to do if an armed sensor trips?" You will likely see your fire alarm with at least one of the four slider bars in the ON position, If so, place each slider in the OFF position.
