Answer

Plug in the PowerHorn siren.

Define an AM466 Three-Pin Appliance Module in ActiveHome Pro at the SAME address as the PowerHorn.

Build a Macro with a 'different Trigger Code' than the PowerHorn's address.

Put the following steps in the macro:

  • Delay 2 Seconds
  • Appliance Module On
  • Delay 2 Seconds
  • Appliance Module On

You should repeat this sequence of steps at least 4 times.

After building this macro, go to the room in which it resides, then click its Run Macro button.

The siren should go off.

About 5 seconds after the macro finishes running, the siren should stop sounding.
