I have 3 x Popp Smoke Detector and Siren (Z-wave Plus - POPE004001) in my home that I’m trying to configure via Home Assistant to change the siren sound. These are battery powered and each time I change them the configuration reverts to the basic settings.
I’m using a Hass.io on a Pi2 with a RaZberry module.
I was wondering if I would get better results with Z-wave related devices if I used a “Z-Wave Aeotec USB Adapter Gen 5” instead of the RazBerry module or is there something else I could try?
You normally need to wake up the battery sensors before committing any changes and they only stay awake for a limited period. There should be a button somewhere in/on the devices that you need to click several times to wake them, then the changes will take and be saved to each device, hope that helps
The Razberry module should be fine, I use it without issue.
As @keithh666 said though battery powered modules need to be awake to take the settings. You can either wait for that to happen on the device’s schedule (which could be once a day), or you can manually wake it following the instructions in the device’s manual.
Thanks @keithh666. I had tried in the past to wake the devices up without succes. However today I managed to changed the acoustic settings for the siren which is exactly what I wanted. The interface sometime still shows as if it did not change the values, but when I tested the actual siren I could hear the difference so internally it seems fine.
Thank you @Tinkerer for letting me know you use the RaZberry without issue. I was really wondering if I would get better mileage out of the USB stick but now I’m relieved I can invest my money in other components
