Tip: Cheap wireless doorbell from Action

Post by m00st » Sunday 23 April 2017 23:04

A tip for Dutch Domoticz users: the Select Plus wireless doorbell that's for sale for 5,95 Eur at the Action works well with RFXcomm, provided that you enable the Byron SX protocol on the RFXcomm.:

This is the unit in it's packaging:

It comes with a remote door clicker (battery included) and the receiver (the thing that makes the sound) plugs into an EU power socket. It has 3 volumes and 36 different melodies. Pretty handy as a chime for some event.

That is working for me as well. I have it as a trigger for getting a snapshot of my security camera and send it to my whatsapp.

But when I trigger it in Domoticz, the chime is ringing as well (and so annoying my Girlfriend when testing the system haha)

This is awesome!
I was looking for a cheap device which could alarm me in case of fire, waking up, etc. This is exactly what I was looking for.

Is it possible to make the doorbell and the siren both a seperate sensor in Domoticz? So I can have a seperate doorbell switch and a seperate siren for multiple applications?

Thanks for sharing! This Action doorbell works for me to. I have not looked into un-pairing the doorbell and the chime, would be nice to be able to use the doorbell as a remote-control for other domoticz actions.

Did you enable the correct protocol? (the Byron SX protocol on the RFXcomm according to the first post).

Are there separate low cost doorbell buttons (beldrukker < dutch) with integrated light that I can connect to my wired cables of my current doorbell connected to the transformer in my utility room, that will be able to create an event in domoticz (RFZcomm?)

Hi All,

My setup : platform raspberry2 with domoticz v3.8153
RFXCOM - RFXtrx433 USB 433.92MHz Transceiver
Version: Ext2/1024

I have the Byron SX protocol enabled by (Modus instellen) and click the set mode button .

When i want to add new hardware, the Byron sx protocol is not in the (Type) list to select .

What can i do more ?

Greetzzz

Use the Learn Light/Switch and then push the button. This should show your new button/doorbell.

Note that these doorbells are in & out of stock often at Action. So if you don't find them now, try again in a few weeks or try another Action. Utrecht currently doesn't sell them but Amsterdam does.
