New Bindings aeotec doorbell 6


I’m searching for a very simple doorbell to integrate in openhab.
I was thinking about the aeotec doorbell 6 because I already have multiple zwave devices so it would fit with my setup.
But I saw that that device is not in the zwave binding, can I see somewhere when it will be added?
Or if somebody is already looking into it to add it in the zwave binding.
I found a few posts of people who made stuff for the doorbell but apparently it’s not integrated.

Also other doorbell suggestions are welcome (needs to be battery powered)

To add a device to the Z-Wave database go to:

I think they already did that:

Or will that thread not add the device to the binding?
if it will, what is the estimated time in general that a binding is updated?

Usually every weekend.

For your device a binding update is needed, so please be patient:

Our developer recent got his development environment working with the new build system. He is working through a 3 month backlog of changes needed.

So the change will come lets say in a few months, so end this year, beginning next year?
I guess I can live with that, will only need another option to configure the device so I don’t get 110db blasting in my ears when somebody rings my bell.

@robbie_demaegdt - Did you find a solution for changing this without OpenHAB? :slightly_smiling_face:

@chris any idea when this binding change can happen?

I’m totally snowed under with ZigBee updates at the moment. I’m having to put code through ZigBee Alliance certification over the next few weeks and that’s taking a lot of my time unfortunately so it will likely be late November as I am on holiday for 2 weeks in the beginning of November.

Thank you for the detailed update, Chris. I figured you were very busy.

That bell is indeed very loud, my solution for now was to put it on another floor in small room to make it more silent :stuck_out_tongue:
There is another way to change it but you will need a zwave hub like smartthings which most of us don’t have because we are using OH.

The long awaited binding changes would resolve this.

I am reading the engineering specification and seems more parameters than siren now exist

I have the ZW162-C (i suspect -C is the revision) and I can see now changes on tone etc… should I try to add an improved device version for this in the database? @Bruce_Osborne what you suggest?

Time to look at firmware versions. I like using HABmin for that.
Configuration -> Things -> [thing] -> Atributes (all the way at the bottom).
Here is one of my devices.

My Aeotec Doorbell reports this:

Good. I will try & dig out what version we started with. I think I still have the files at home.

EDIT: The Siren 6 from last August was also version 1.4.
Sometimes the Engineering Specification has more information than the manual. It took a long time to enter that database entry and it may take a while to compare it with the specification document.

Some of the configuration parameters are hidden unless you look at the Advanced configuration options. What is an example of what you think is missing?.

The database entry is here.

There are more parameters in the database than in your engineering specification. Talk to the manufacturer to produce better docs.

Are there any news about doorbell6 binding for Openhab?
I also purchased one but seems it can not recognize by openhab


What version of openHAB? It should work on 2.5.2 unless you have a different device is that needs to be added.
