I’ve seen a few people talk about dumb siren-type devices here, so that you can plug them into Wyze plugs and trigger them through rules in the app. I don’t really want a siren, but it might be nice to have something that beeps when doors open, maybe when a person is detected outside, etc. With that in mind, does anyone know of a dumb device that simply makes a “beep” sound when connected to power? Oddly enough, smart plugs have probably created a new market for super simple dumb devices that can be controlled by them. Haha. I’d love a simple, stupid device like this. But I really don’t know how to find it.
If I knew more about electrical wiring, etc, I’m sure there are a million $5 products out there that I could dissect to make this happen. I know that it’s very simple, but I don’t know how to solder or anything. I’ve done really simple electrical stuff like connecting a light fixture, so if it’s that level – connecting a couple wires with a wire nut – I could probably handle that. But I just don’t know what to buy.
Yeah. My phone makes a sound already, but I don’t really want something that relies on my phone. Frankly, when I’m home, I don’t really want to have to send notifications to my phone when a door opens. A beep will suffice.
As for the chime product you sent, that looks perfect, form-factor wise. But in order to make it beep whenever it receives power, I guess I’d have to dissect it and reroute some wires. That’s what I don’t really know enough about, unfortunately.
lol Yeah, It would beeping until the “door is closed” for the continuous buzzer, there are other ones out there that have a delay, like when power is supplied, beep every 10 seconds, 20 seconds…etc. Like the one I made Makes a noise, then will sound again if the “door” is not closed within 10 seconds. it works well for my needs. But you are making me now want to break out the arduino One and make something from scratch now.
The siren chime device by Dome works with smart things and others. Maybe just a tie in to it.
I have it make a nice chime for doors, other alerts as I want.
Or make a wyze one like the ring chime.
Very very useful
I have pretty much all my stuff working in SmartThings with a ton of virtual switches and virtual motion sensors. That way I can use them in WebCore, I would rather have seamless integration but for now I make it work, seems to do good enough for me.
