COMMAND_CLASS_SOUND_SWITCH support

Post by MrRusch »

I recently purchased an Aeotec Doorbell 6, which I understand is quite a capable device. But it relies on the SOUND_SWITCH command class, which we dont have support for here yet?
Any plans of implementing?
This command is required for changing the volume and/or tone of the device. So pretty boring without it :roll:

Hi! It was recently implemented in Z-Way for a new device by Goap.

Please install https://storage.z-wave.me/z-way-server/ ... _armhf.deb

It is v3.0.2 with this Command Class supported.

The update is functional, usable, but maybe a different approach could be used.
For the Aeotec Siren 6 over 250 virtual devices are created.

For each channel and for each sound type a toggle device is created: (8+1 channels) * (30 sound types) ... that's a lot
Maybe a simple solution would be to create instead of the toggle devices a multilevel switch for each channel, that would sum up 9, instead of 270?

Unfortunately this is not something universal. I would even ask them why to have 8 channels?

I can't t answer you that. This siren is anything but user-friendly, but still one of the best currently available options.
As you have a much deeper understanding of this I'm sure you'll come up with a better idea.

We need to see few more devices on the market first to understand the best way to control them. Currently we have Aeotec (never tested) and Goap only.
