Ok, so I’m adding more devices and setting up some scenes and ran across this interesting situation. I’m assuming this may be working as intended but certainly wasn’t my expectation.
I have two Linear GD00Z-4 garage door openers. When I added them I get three devices. The opener, the light and the siren. All of which can be turned on or off (except my lights are burned out so that’s a bummer) which is cool but…
In setting up a door sensor with the plan to have it turn on a light when the door is opened, I found out that if the sensor is armed and opened, it turns on the sirens on the garage door openers without the need for a scene. I assume this is because the sensor is armed. I was creating my scene with it being armed that way if for some reason I wanted to disable it, I could just disarm the sensor.
My challenge is I have another sensor (GE door hinge sensor) that I plan to use in a similar fashion to turn on lights when we come home at night. I don’t want it to turn on the sirens every time we come home.
I guess I could just not use the armed state on the sensors as a workaround. I’m assuming now if you have sirens as devices and sensors that are armed, there’s an automatic activation of sirens when motion is detected on the sensors.
Working as intended?
