How to play a sound with BeNeXt Tag Reader ?

Post by ITWT » Friday 12 February 2016 16:20

Hello everyone,

I use the RFID BeNeXt Tag Reader (also known as Zipato Mini Keypad) to arm and disarm my alarm, programmed with my Eedomus.
The problem is I don't know if the alarm is disabled once I past RFID tag or typed code. I would like that the BeNeXt make, for example, 2 beep if it's OK and 5 if it's not OK.
I know that this box can make sounds (see page 9) but I can't program it :-\

Anyone have an idea to do this ?

Thank you in advance

PS : Sorry for my english :-\

The BeNEXT is the same as the Zipato mini keypad (Schlage Link Mini Keypad RFID), which also states that it is possible to sent a notification to the keypad via COMMAND_CLASS_SWITCH_BINARY. This in order to notify the user that the alarm is armed.
I am looking to get this working with the same delay as the domoticz security panel (30s),
So I arm the security with a 30 s delay, during this time I want the keypad start beeping. after 30 s the security is armed and the keypad goes silent.
Zipato wrote: SOUND NOTIFICATION
The Mini Keypad RFiD/Z-Wave is capable of playing a notification sound. This feature is typically used to notify a user that an alarm system is being activated. Since the Mini Keypad RFiD/Z-Wave is a non-listening device, the feature can not be controlled at all times. It requires the Mini Keypad RFiD/Z-Wave to wake up and send a Wake Up Notification. After sending a notification that a tag/code is read (either an unknown or already configured code), the Mini Keypad RFiD/Z-Wave will send a Wake Up Notification. The notification sound can be turned on/off upon receiving any Wake Up Notification. See the section about the Wake Up Command Class for information on when a Wake Up Notification is send.
NOTIFICATION SOUND AND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT The Mini Keypad RFiD/Z-Wave supports 3 types of notification sound configurations:
1 | Notification sound disabled (configuration parameter 2 set to zero) 2 | Notification sound enabled (default, configuration parameter 2 set to auto-stop time). 3 | Notification sound and acknowledgement enabled (configuration parameter 3 set to acknowledgement timeout). In the first mode, any Basic or Switch Binary commands that are received are ignored. The second mode, the default, can be used to inform a user that the alarm system is armed or disarmed. To use this, you can send a Basic or Switch Binary set on (0xFF) after receiving an Alarm Report and the Wake Up Notification following it.
The last mode can be used in situations where, for example, users can only disarm the alarm system at certain times. In this case, the user can be notified whether or not its code or tag is accepted. By configuring configuration parameter 3, you can set an acknowledge timeout. Whenever a Lock/Unlock Alarm Report containing an UID is send by the Mini Keypad RFiD/Z-Wave, the acknowledgement timeout timer is started.
AFTER THIS THERE ARE TWO POSSIBILITIES: 1 | The Mini Keypad RFiD/Z-Wave does not receive anything (or receives a Wake Up No More Information upon its Wake Up Notification). It starts the error sound to notify the user of the unaccepted code. 2 | The Mini Keypad RFiD/Z-Wave receives either a Basic (or Switch Binary) on (to start the normal notification sound) or off (to silently acknowledge the code). The acknowledgement timer is stopped.
Note that it is actually possible to disable notification sound, but enable acknowledgement. In this case a silent acknowledgement can be both a Basic/Switch Binary on (0xFF) or off (0x00).
Does someone has any idea if this is possible.

Guess no-one has an idea.
Now I am solving it by adding a USB speaker to the raspberry. When armed it will play a some wav files in a 30 s loop and set a switch. So I know that I can continue arming.
