I’m looking for a button to use as a doorbell. I’d prefer z-wave since I have that working nicely already. Battery operated since I have no wiring available at the door. Weather proof of course. I can use a couple of Sonos speakers as sound output but I need a button of some sort to trigger.
I’ve tried the zigbee Aqara mini switch but can’t get it setup through an old Nortek controller I had sitting around. Not very interested in fighting that much further since I have no other zigbee devices currently.
Also tried the Aeotec Siren 6 but that was a huge hassle configuring it and it was incredibly loud since it’s a siren by design.
My previous solution was the Aeotec Doorbell 5 which worked nicely but got accidentally damaged.
You can attach any pushbutton to a fibaro smartimplant, or a v2 door/window/contact sensor.
Or any.other zwave device that can handle binary input.
See my two tutorials on pushbutton for a smokemachine. You don’t need any relays or anything.
@Seaside, a quick glance at that smartimplant seems like it needs a power supply. I don’t have any wiring at the door currently so I really need a battery operated button of some sort. Unless I’m reading the manual from Fibaro wrong.
That’s the way I’m going to go with it. Fibaro FGK-104 on the inside of the wall next to the front door. A simple momentary switch on the outside. Just need to push a couple wires between the two and I can get events from the sensor and trigger any number of actions from that.
