This page provides information on how to use Siren Gen5 configuration setting Parameter 37 and form part of the larger Siren Gen5 user guide.

You must use Parameter 37 to change the tone and volume of the Siren. In order to make this setting change, your gateway must support the Configuration Command Class otherwise this is not possible.

By setting Parameter 37 [2 byte hex]  using the list above, you would set it as 0x[value1][value2]

Value 1 sets the sound

Value 2 sets the volume.

For some examples:

  • If you want sound 3 with volume of 1, then you would set Parameter 37 [2 byte] = 0x301
  • If you want sound 1 with volume of 3, then you would set Parameter 37 [2 byte] = 0x103
  • If you want sound 5 with volume of 2, then you would set Parameter 37 [2 byte] = 0x502

If your software or gateway does not use hex values, you can take any Hex to Decimal calculator to change this.

Below image reflects the hex value 0x301 conversion to decimal which is equivalent to 769 decimal.
