Function and device overview

The Homematic IP Alarm Siren is designed for indoor applications and enables reliable acoustic and visual signaling in alarm cases, e.g. triggered by a  Homematic IP Motion Detector. Alarms can be deactivated by connected Homematic IP devices or the Homematic IP app.

Once activated, the loudspeaker emits an acoustic signal with a sound pressure level of more than 90 dB. You can select between various different signal sounds. In addition, two high-performance red signal LEDs ensure visual signaling and enable early warning in case of an alarm. The battery-operated alarm siren can be simply and flexibly mounted to walls or ceilings using the supplied mounting plate and the corresponding screws and plugs. Thanks to the integrated tamper contact you are immediately informed via the app about the unauthorized removal of the device.

Please read this entire section before starting the teach-in procedure.
First set up your Homematic IP Access Point via the Homematic IP app to enable the operation of other  Homematic IP devices within your system.For further information, please refer to the operating manual of the Access Point.
You can connect the device to the Access Point or to the Central Control Unit CCU2/CCU3. For detailed information, please refer to the Homematic IP User Guide, available for download in the download area ofwww.homematic-ip.com.

To integrate the alarm siren into your system and enable it to communicate with other devices, you must teach it first. To teach in your device to the  Access Point, please proceed as follows:

  • Open the Homematic IP app on your smartphone.
  • Select the menu item “Teach-in device”.
  • Remove the insulation strip from the battery compartment (D). Teach-in mode remains activated for 3 min.You can manually start the teach-in mode for another 3 minutes by pressing the system button (B) shortly (see figure 5).
  • Your device will automatically appear in the Homematic IP app.
  • To confirm, please enter the last four digits of the device number (SGTIN) in your app or scan the QR code. Therefore, please see the sticker supplied or attached to the device.
  • Please wait until the teach-in is completed.
  • If teaching-in was successful, the LED lights up green. The device is now ready for use.
  • If the LED lights up red, please try again.
  • In the app, select which applications you want to use the device.
  • Allocate the device to a room and give the device a name.

Replacing batteries

If the symbol for empty batteries („8.4 Error codes and flashing sequences“ on page 38) or the symbol () appears in the app, please replace the used batteries by three new LR6/mignon/AA batteries. You must observe the correct battery polarity. To insert new batteries, please proceed as follows:

  • Rotate the device anti-clockwise in order to remove it from the mounting plate (see figure 6).
  • Remove the empty batteries from the battery compartment (D).
  • Insert three new LR6/mignon/AA batteries in the battery compartment, observing the polarity shown (see figure 7).
  • Turn the device back into the mounting plate.

Please pay attention to the flashing signals of the device LED (B) while inserting the batteries (see „8.4 Error codes and flashing sequences“ on page 38).

Caution! There is a risk of explosion if the battery is not replaced correctly. Replace only with the same or equivalent type. Never recharge standard batteries. Do not throw the batteries into a fire. Do not expose batteries to excessive heat. Do not short-circuit batteries. Doing so will present a risk of explosion.
Used batteries should not be disposed of with regular domestic waste! Instead, take them to your local battery disposal point.


Weak batteries

Provided that the voltage value permits it, the alarm siren will remain ready for operation also if the battery voltage is low. Depending on the particular load,  it may be possible to send transmissions again repeatedly, once the batteries have been allowed a brief recovery period. If the voltage drops too far during transmission, the empty battery symbol () and the corresponding error code will be displayed in the app and on the device (see „8.4 Error codes and flashing sequences“ on page 38). In this case, replace the empty batteries by two new batteries (see „7 Replacing batteries“ on page 34).

Command not confirmed

If at least one receiver does not confirm a command, the device LED lights up red at the end of the failed transmission process. The failed transmission may be caused by radio interference (see „11 General information about radio operation“ on page 40). This may be caused be the following:

  • Receiver cannot be reached.
  • Receiver is unable to execute the command (load failure, mechanical blockade, etc.).
  • Receiver is defective.
Duty cycle

The duty cycle is a legally regulated limit of the transmission time of devices in the 868 MHz range. The aim of this regulation is to safeguard the operation of all devices working in the 868 MHz range.In the 868 MHz frequency range we use, the maximum transmission time of any device is 1% of an hour (i.e. 36 seconds in an hour). Devices must cease transmission when they reach the 1% limit until this time restriction comes to an end. Homematic IP devices are designed and produced with 100% conformity to this regulation. During normal operation, the duty cycle is not usually reached. However, repeated and radio-intensive teaching processes mean that it may be reached in isolated instances during start-up or initial installation of a system.If the duty cycle is exceeded, this is indicated by three long flashes of the device LED and may manifest itself in the device temporarily working incorrectly.  The device starts working correctly again after a short period (max. 1 hour).

Maintenance and cleaning

The product does not require any maintenance. Enlist the help of an expert to carry out any repairs.

Clean the device using a soft, lint-free cloth that is clean and dry. You may dampen the cloth a little with lukewarm water in order to remove more stubborn marks. Do not use any detergents containing solvents, as they could corrode the plastic housing and label.

General information about radio operation

Radio transmission is performed on a non-exclusive transmission path, which means that there is a possibility of interference occurring. Interference can also be caused by switching operations, electrical motors, or defective electrical devices.

The range of transmission within buildings can differ greatly from that available in the open air. Besides the transmitting power and the reception characteristics of the receiver, environmental factors such as humidity in the vicinity have an important role to play, as do on-site structural/screening conditions.
