Not just for a siren

If you have multiple Konnected boards or if you buy a relay module, you can easily add other, non security, things. Instead of the siren, you could use the relay to switch on a sprinkler system, garage door opener, pool pump, motorized gate, or anything. Have fun with it and share your projects! If you need help there are a lot of people that can get you in the right direction.

I’d like to power a motorized door that accepts 12V DC (requires about 1A current) from my Konnected Board. The catch is that it calls for a dual throw (up-off-down). It would be easy for me to wire if it were a zwave dry contact relay, like a MIMOlite. Is it possible to accomplish this via Konnected?

I used the Alarm output to turn in a relay momentarily to OPEN a normally closed contact wired to zone 1 of my alarm panel.
This makes the chime sound on the existing keypads when doors and windows are opened.
It is very slow though.

I don't think there is device handler that allows for a dual throw switch. 


You can use one of the zones to achieve this as well. 

I would use the alarm output for something that requires 12v of power like a siren or strobe.

I don’t wanna waste a whole zone for that :slight_smile:
I only have 6 zones for 26 wires coming from my house wiring.
Every one of the 15 windows was separate so I put those in series as one zone “All Windows”

I used the 12V to activate the relay
