Neo Coolcam Siren cannot change manual parameters


johndeere
 Share

Question

This problem may not be related to the 3rd party device, but rather to HC2.

 

I can't change manual parameters (this device does not have template). I can add parameters only if I click on READ ONLY or DEFAULT. Otherwise the parameter does not appear in the list.

The problem is that I cannot change any parameter. If I change it, and save it, then read/sync: it still remains on the default value.

I have 2pcs of this device and I did not have this problem with the previous.

This unalterable parameter problem appeared after the recalled 4.540 update.

 

Can anyone give me any trick on how to change parameters in this case?

Thanks!

I have a VD for this siren. You need to set on the "port" , the device ID of your siren. after that you can control the sounds from this virtual device

  • OK, I get it, thanks! I'm a beginner and I make mistakes, sorry about it and of course I don't want to change any code, I respect the author :)

    Now it works and I started to understand how it works.

    For those who are unsure (like I was)

    Thank you for the assistance! And also thanks once again for FSE !

    I'm glad that worked. yes, please share 

    OK, so I included all parameters of Neo Cool Cam Siren into this Virtual Device. Now you can set anything you want. Thank you again for the original VD!

    For parameter inclusion I used the device's user manual found here:

    Please login or register to see this link.

     

    If you want to understand this VD better, it is useful to use it together with the user manual.

     

    The VD looks like this:

    /monthly_2019_03/image.png.0d69a3ff05755b3df377dc1c11a000ed.png" />

     

    Alarm Volume 1-2-3 level

    As = Alarm sound / melody type 1 to 10

    Alarm Siren or Door Bell default mode, when turned on via switch

    P2 = see parameter 2 from user manual = Configure Alarm Music Duration Time

    Door Bell Volume 1-2-3 level

    Bs = Door Bell sound  / melody type 1 to 10

    Alarm LED On/Off when alarm sound is playing

    Door Bell LED On/Off when door bell sound is playing

     

    I gave all parameters a talkative name so that you can use this VD in scenes straightforward.

    Have a nice Siren :)

  • Thank you very much, it looks interesting. I didn't have the chance to test it today, but tomorrow I will try it out. It would be fantastic if it worked :)

    I know this question may sound stupid, but I wonder what IP address and TCP port I should fill in. I suppose it's not the HC2 LAN IP address, is it? 192.168.x.x.

    Or localhost 127.0.0.1? Is TCP port the device ID...?

    This will be my first VD...

    Thanks!

    @johndeere device id

     @FSE said put device here

    Hi, I'm a beginner, so please a little bit more information :)

    How do I find out the z-wave networki IP address? Is it localhost by default?

    How do I find the device TCP port? Is it the device ID by default?

    image.png.b8b89a23e61a4c730b9989fea9534619.png

    or do I have to modify the Lua code like this?

    Originally the code and VD header looked like this:

    image.png.c751c361ed66075d0bb565e03e00bce2.png

     

    Again, sorry if the question is stupid, but I need to get this VD working somehow. Thanks in advance!

    1st

    do not modify (especially when u beginner) any VD's / scripts if author not asking it.

    2nd

    find your neocoolcam device

    get DeviceId

     

    back to VD

    simple put this Id into TCPPort

    done!

    This works great! I made a scene which plays all meoldies of this Siren :) May I add the remaining CoolCam Siren parameters into your VD?

  • I updated the file, because I forgot to finish the LED behaviour settings. Now it is complete with LED switch. Please download it again. Sorry..

    FSE, johndeere,

     

    thank you very much for this VD :-) I spent lot of time trying to set parameters and ended up with the same as johndeere at the begining... Fibaro should fix this quickly, not problem only for NEO siren, the same issue I have with Heatit relay...

     

    johndeere, you mentioned it is now possible to use the VD in scenes. Looks like VD's don't appear in block scenes, so i guess LUA is needed. Could you please give example of code?

     

    is it something like this below in case of VD ID 200 and siren ID 300 or I should use it somehow different?

    fibaro:call(200, "pressButton", "Door Bell")

    fibaro:call(200, "pressButton", "Bell Vol 1")

    fibaro:call(200, "pressButton", "Bs6")

    fibaro:call(300, "turnOn")

     

    thank you

    Jan

    Hello Jan,

     

    I included parameters required in scenes too into the VD above for Neo Siren. I made a scene where the volume of siren increases then decreases  at given time intervals.

    Check out this screenshot:

    image.png.a7f41b14ef3595fce1459d551e31f54a.png

     

    I cannot copy the whole screen here but I hope you get the idea :-)

    Good luck!

    Hello! I have a Neo Cool Cam Siren and I want to add it in my HLC but the vfib file posted before doesn't work. I think that this file is for HC2. Do you know where I can find similar file for Home Center Lite? Thank you.

    hint:

    all LUA files what provided here for HC2 can be runned via "proxy" on another env via HC API.

    so.

    your PC with LUA env => LUA bridge file => call HC API => your HCL

     

    yes, it's not trivial for noobs. but again all LUA scenes what proviided forum can be runned for your HCL but not on your HCL

    Thanks very much to all people posting the VDs above. This really helped to get an understanding of the Neo CoolCam siren parameters.

    The manufacturer's documentation that I found on the internet does not describe all parameters, just the first 6.

     

    The VD works perfectly with my version of the siren, which has the blue leds.

     

    Attached is an update of the VD:

    - more descroptive labels for the 'Duration' buttons.

    - two new buttons to switch the siren on/off. This helps in testing the effect of all the parameters.

     

    Cheers,

    Marc

    Not sure if I got this working. Trying the different door bells I would say that maybe one of them sound like a door bell. Rest of them, just horrible alarms. I expected like "Für Elise" or similar. Am I just picky?
