Heiman smoke detector

z-wave

#21

Hello guys,

I’ve also (blind) bought some of these via ALI.
They can be added as a general z-wave device and are inactive when viewing in the homey app.
I presume they become active when smoke is detected (has anyone tried this?). In that way hypothetically you can write a flow to make them work.

Regards,

Jeroen

I havent tried it. I added them as general zigbee (i have the zigbee version, heiman sells both versions) and pressed the test button and it didnt swich on in the flow.
Also i tried to make a flow where if one of the smokedetectors would be active, it would also push the others in active (i have three) but it didn’t work if i ran the test flow option.
With this i wanted to make a flow that would active all the three smoke detectors if one gets active.

I see an app is there for the smoke detector. And it works fine, hope the temp sensor and door contact also being supported soon.

i found the app for zwave. still have to wait for the zigbee option.
hope this is still work in process

I’m curious about progress too. I now have two of the zigbee version (2 more on the way) and was hoping to include them in my home security system. I’m unsure about the on/off state in case of fire, but sadly it isn’t linked to the siren.

Thanks for creating the Zwave version!!


#27

As an update, I tested the on/off state with smoke, but it does not do anything. Until the inclusion of the zigbee sensors in the app, these are just dumb smoke sensors.


#28

Which is logical, because the sensor is sleeping (and not listening continuously) to preserve the battery.


#29

Thanks for the great app!

I finally can include my smoke sensors.

However I can’t join the smoke sensors together so when the one upstairs detects smoke, the ones downstairs wil start the alarm too.

Is this even possible with this type of smoke sensor?

I now have a workaround with a flow for each smoke sensor assiociated with the general alarms…

But a happy homey user over here!

@TedTolboom is there any timeframe for.the zigbee inclusion into the app?
