Protect your home and your safety with Z-Wave. Siren Gen5 lets you add 210 lumen strobe light and 106dB siren alerts to your Z-Wave home control system. Anti-tamper and power-out protect keeps the siren online even when your power isn’t courtesy of Siren Gen5’s inbuilt, 430 mAh backup battery. Built upon Gen5 and Z-Wave Plus, Aeotec’s Siren Gen5 offers customisation and configuration via Z-Wave including different tones for different emergencies, adjustment of the decibles to be quieter or louder, and use of Siren Gen5 as a door chime. Z-Wave Plus certified, Siren Gen5 is compatible with certified Z-Wave gateways and software including Fibaro, HomeSeer, Indigo for Mac, openHAB, Piper, Samsung SmartThings, Mios Vera, and Wink.
It is very easy to build a backup alarm system from Z-Wave hardware (motion detector or opening of door or window …). In case of intrusion into your home, you can create scenarios to protect your property.
Examples of realization to protect your property in case of intrusion in your home
Here are some examples of realization very easy to achieve:
By equipping you with micro-module lighting control or a wall socket, you can for example turn on a Sonos lamp or sound system to simulate a presence.
Turn on all outdoor lights with a 2500W switch module.
Send a notification to your smartphone as soon as an intrusion is detected. For example, you can use a service such as Push Over to do this. Read this tutorial that explains how to send a notification from Domoticz in case of smoke detection.
Detect an attempt to scramble Z-Wave modules (jamming)
There is not (for the moment at least) solution to detect an attempt to jam (Jamming) Z-Wave communications. Increasingly common for the 433MHz and 868Mhz radio frequencies, the Z-Wave protocol is more difficult to jam. However, it is quite easy to detect such an attack by regularly monitoring that all modules are reachable. A script is available on Domoticz’s official WiKi here.
