Question

Afternoon all.

 

I've seen many people asking how to make a smart DoorBell with the Fibaro System and thought i'd create a guide on one I have recently created using the Fibaro universal sensor, RGBW controller, Sonos LUA device and notification panel and an existing doorbell. 

 

In my house, there was an existing mains powered DoorBell made by Byron. After taking the case off, i turned off the power and started to gut out all of the components just so i had the bell button wires and the mains wires.

I bought, off off Amazon a small LED driver to convert 240v to 12vDC with just enough amperage to run the FGBS-00-1.

I then wired up the LED driver with the mains power, put my HC2 in inclusion mode and connected the power to the uni sensor. This included fine so then soldered one of the inputs to the positive of the bell wire and the negative to the other.

 

I found out the the bell push button on the outside of the house had a bulb in it and did not work as a normal push button so changed it for a basic push-to-make button and this worked AOK so i organised the old doorbell and ended up looking like this before i put the cover on.

I also have a CCTV system with some Hikvision IP cams so made the following script when the doorbell is pressed to start some scenes in the house, play a track on the Sonos, send notifications to iPhones and to take a photo of the front door.

With the device groups, these are all RGBW controllers around the house that flash for about 3 seconds and then turn off with the next scene. 

 

Here is the the script for when the doorbell switch is safe.

With the DS Hall LED turning off after 120 seconds, this is for a set of LED lights in the porch as per below.

Works like a charm and has done for about 3 weeks with no problems. 

 

Previously, i was using a Fibaro door/window sensor with the bell wire but just wanted to step it up a notch:-) 

 

If anyone has any questions at all, please let me know and i will see if i can help. 

 

Thanks,

Hi,

Can you give more info about how you have made your programs on the RGBW to flash?

I thought about doing that myself :)
