Hoping someone can help me.
I recently purchased a Homey Pro and I have been trying to link it up to my Dakota Alert Re-4K wireless receiver by connecting the RE-4K relay output (NO, COM,NC) to the terminals on a door sensor that would be recognised by Honey. The Dakota receiver is triggered to play a sound by an outdoor motion sensing transmitter which is located at the gate on my driveway, well outside the range of my wi-fi or z-wave range to the Homey Pro.
I purchased a number of Schwaiger ZHS09 door sensor devices for this purpose. There are a number of example of the set-up I am proposing available online, but not with this exact model of device.
I only seem to be able to add this device to Homey Pro as a basic z-wave device and it is functioning correctly when using the magnet to trigger the sensor. The sensor does not trigger via the relay circuits. I have found one suggestion online (for a similar device) noting that the external circuit needs to be enabled by the controller. Regrettably, this option does not exist in the Homey when the device is added as a basic z-wave device.
So, I believe my options are as follows:
- find a way to add the device to Homey which has this option to enable the external circuit
- Find a different device which has external circuit option and is recognised by Homey.
I gather, but cannot be sure, that the ZHS09 is a rebranded sensor from another manufacturer e.g. Aeotec ZW074 or Vision ZD 2102-5. I have tried to add the Schwaiger ZHS09 device as one of these but each time it reverts to a basic device without the option to enable the external circuit.
Is there anyone here who has experience that could help me resolve this problem.
Thank you in advance.
