Also buy with the Aliexpress app. It had special mobile only discounts.

But indeed prices gone up again. With Christmas I saw one for 26 euro wall plug.

I have the AS-AB01Z siren as well, and studying on how to create the XML file... just not studying hard enough..
All info needed is here: http://products.z-wavealliance.org/products/1962

Only the Device ID is wrong, that should be
Neo CoolCam Battery Powered Siren/Doorbell: type=0003, id=1088

I am forced by my wife to stay the Christmas holidays with the family in a vacation park, so maybe I will give it a go when there. ;)


I just created the xml file, I'll test it out and submit it to openzwave github


May I test your XML as well?

I'll post it tomorrow here

Received and added Neo Coolcam powerplug. But can someone explain all the devices and how to use them?
I can use the switch, but have no idea what to do with the rest :)

A nice overview of what you receive for around 30 euro

Really crapy build, the ground connector is just forced together with that little screw that is screwed to the plastic... This can't meet any standard. You unscrew and their is no ground, and you don't even know if it's connected when you screw it together again. Just hope the metal touch each other.
Safe haha

As the users manual clearly explains, the power plug is able to monitor your energy consumption. So 10 or 11 (you'll see that after a day or so) will be your total consumption (in kwh), 11 is the current consumption (or the total, you'll see that), 12 is the current voltage while 13 is the current ampere.

Haha one of four broken, it's not that.
Its the way it's build, that ground is connected thru a single little screw that easily will brake. And that's for all four.

You have to be a seller for coolcam? Right? Because you argue like it's your own personal stuff, and can't see the fact that it's "cheap" Chinese quality. That not meet the the other manufacturers standard and quality/ control... But it's a little cheaper, will buy fibaro next time and can't recommend this after a couple of weeks use.

Nice pictures. Shows its build clearly. Did you find any fuse? Two of mine "died". Am wondering whether it's repearable or not.
