Aeotec Siren (Gen 5)

The Aeotec Siren (Gen5) is a Z-Wave device that—using the power of SmartThings—can be triggered to sound an alarm and flash its super-bright LEDs when a door opens, motion is detected, or some other event occurs. The Aeotec Siren plugs into your wall outlet.

Note: The Aeotec Siren flashes and strobes at the same time, but it can't perform these actions individually.
