[Q&A] Trigger alarm only when alarm is armed?! HELP

2019-09-12 01:53:30

Hello all,

Today i recieved my Xiaomi gateway, switch and two door sensors. I start to setup everything but i have reached a problem i cant solve. Hopefully someone can help me with this.

What i would like to do is to activate the alarm bij activating one of the door sensors, but only when the alarm is armed. I set the following scene: IFF gateway Alarm & door opens THEN play designated ringtone.  This works BUT it also sounds when the alarm is disarmed. So no matter if the alarm is armed or disarmd, the alarm will go of anyway.

I really hope someone can help me with this.

Thanks in advance.

That's not how alarm works. You either use ARM and select which sensors will trigger the alarm, or you don't use ARM/alarm feature and set a SCENE. Alarm has nothing to do with scenes....

That is because you made automation. It runs on condition. And it runs every time.

* Run Mihome

* open gateway
* on top click "auto" tab
* click "alert"
* Add trigger device

and check all devices you want to trigger the alarm

Sorry, how can I have five seconds after I open the front door to be able to deactivate the alarm?  My problem is that as soon as I enter my house, the alarm rings.  Is there a way to insert a five-second timer before the alarm sounds?

Thank’s

Unfortunately, there isn't. You must disable alarm before you enter with your phone.
