Re: First Alert Wireless Smoke & Fire Alarm (ZSMOKE/ZCOMBO)

Costco has these on sale as a 3-Pack until 5/26/2022 for $80 (item: 1335046)

I'm still using Indigo 2012.2 and have configured three (3) of these to match the RAW packets received, thanks for that Matt. I even went as far to test with some Smoke Detector Tester Spray, just to be 100% sure they were configured correctly.

As I read thru this thread again, the PDF shared suggested that CO Alarms can be distinguished from Fire Alarms with:

Command Class
Notification (0x71)

Notification Type
CO(0x02)

Notification Event
0x02

Would the following catch a CO Alarm based on that?

Code: Select all
* 0x71 0x05 0x00 0x00 0x00 0xFF 0x02 0x02 *

It will be that, or possibly this:

Code: Select all
* 0x71 0x05 0x00 0x00 0x00 0xFF 0x02 0x01 *

So you could create Triggers for both just to be safe. I'd recommend using Indigo 2022.1 since it has a device definition and will create a CO Alarm on/off device you can directly Trigger off of. Its device definition sets the state to ON for either 0x02 0x01 or 0x02 0x02.

Re: First Alert Wireless Smoke & Fire Alarm (ZSMOKE/ZCOMBO)

Since the ZSMOKE/ZCOMBO devices are battery-powered, you have to wake them up in order to include them into the Z-Stick. You can do this by pulling the battery tray out, count to 5, and then slide the battery tray back in.

If you need broader help on how to include Z-Wave devices into Indigo, check this page:

Re: First Alert Wireless Smoke & Fire Alarm (ZSMOKE/ZCOMBO)

I am having trouble getting my First Alert Smoke /Fire/Carbon Monoxide device to connect. I use a z-stick and it includes fine except that the system thinks it is a generic Notification Sensor not a Smoke Sensor. Also,even though device appears in my list of addable devices, it won't synch. I've tried numerous time and it includes and excludes each time but never will synch nor will it recognize the device as anything other than a generic Notification Sensor.

Any suggestions?
