It was easy enough for me to capture the smoke alert data with Tasker autonotification plugin just by using the data in the notification.
I’m playing with smoke alarms and Co intercepts and then playing a ringtone siren sound for fire to my phone or Bluetooth speaker at night for each camera for more coverage.
Some of my smoke alarms are 2019 and all are T3 sound. One might be a bit older and different model as well.
I’ll test a first alert upstairs above the garage entry door and the OG 10 feet away detects and so does the Pan V3 in the basement.
Both cams sent alerts. But if I test the smoke alarm, but different model and type, one foot away from the Pan V3 in the basement, nothing.
I know the cam Pan V3 works from prior test, so I’m thinking it may related to sounds variation in the cheap 9V style smoke alarms.
All cams are set at 90 percent sound sensitivity. All set to detect Co and smoke.
I know it takes some tweaking, as my basement pan V3s we’re the ones seeing dust bunnies as people and tweaking motion detection seems to have stopped that but still reliably picks up people just fine.
I was and still am, if I can get each camera to send a smoke notification setting up individual camera alerts to my siren sound via Tasker.
Bedroom looking out windows model OG won’t detect with the smoke alarm right on top of it and it’s the same style, but different first alert that worked with the other OG.
I’ll take the other smoke alarm in there and see if it detects that one and keep poking and experimenting.
Maybe they have to beep longer. That same upstairs garage door first alert triggered 4 cameras in one actual cooking smoke test.
Time for T4 alarms perhaps that are linked and they all sound off.
