Adding a virtual Binary Switch for the Alarm CommandClasses

Post by DomotikQuebec » 15 Mar 2016 19:03

I notices in the Expert UI, in the Alarm section :
You can Enable/Disable this CC.

Having a virtual Binary Switch may allow the user to activate or deactivate those events.
Then, you can configure scene to activate those Alarm Sensors, like a "away" scene.

This request is based on the behavior of the Aeotec Multi Sensor 6.
- I can receive a report for the general purpose motion detector.
- If the alarm command classes is enabled, I will also received events for motion sensor or vibration.

It will allow to use the general purpose for activating lights on motion sensor and when the Alarm CC is enabled, it cal also be used for home security.

If I resume this :
Alarm CC disabled : Reports are sent for Basic CC or General Purpose CC only
Alarm CC enabled : Reports are sent for Basic CC or General Purpose CC AND for Alarm CC

Please, feel free to discuss it.

I would say it is easier to ignore them on the controller than to send to the device. Because it is sleeping and delivery is not instant.
