Device Configuration

The following table provides a summary of the 12 configuration parameters available in the Alarm Sound. Detailed information on each parameter can be found in the sections below.

Param Name Description
1 Set to Default Set all configuration values to default values (factory settings)
2 Destination routine on/off Test connection by sending a periodic test. if the device doesn’t react the user will be notified by a sound.
3 Desitnation routine succes time Time it takes to send a new frame after the last frame has succesfully send
4 Destination routine failed time Time elapsed between failing to end a frame and sending a new frame.
7 Select index sound/light mode The index of the sound mode when a switch binary/basic set frame been received

Association Groups

Association groups allow the device to send unsolicited reports to the controller, or other devices in the network. Using association groups can allow you to eliminate polling, providing instant feedback of a device state change without unnecessary network traffic.

The Alarm Sound supports 2 association groups.

Group 1: Association group 1

Changes the LED on the device This group supports 1 nodes.

Group 2: Association group 2

The alarm sound reports it status to the associated devices This group supports 1 nodes.
