The Messaging Centre is an intelligent device that can be controlled remotely. It can send messages via a Z-wave network to the Z-Wave main controller.
In the Z-wave network communications, the Messaging Centre can be connected to any Z-wave main controller.
In communications between the Messaging Centre and Z-wave main controller, the Messaging Centre can  send and receive messages.
When you press the code button of the Messaging Centre, it will send a message to the Z-wave main controller, the Z-wave main controller can display the on/off status of the Messaging Centre; when the Messaging Centre receives messages from the Z-wave main controller, the siren alarm will be triggered.
The Messaging Centre is battery powered, small and easily install. When the Messaging Centre is working, the LED light will flash and there will be a alarm sound at the same time.

How to Change to Change the Chime Sounds in Vera using a Scene.

  1. Find your Siren's Node ID.  To do this, go to the "Devices" tab, click the arrow next to your Siren, go to the "Advanced" tab, and note the value next to "altid" (figure 1.)  Click "Next" when done.
  2. Create a Scene and choose your trigger.  To do this, go to the "Scenes" tab, click "Add Scene," and choose your trigger.  In our example, we will manually trigger the scene (figure 2.)  Click "Next" when done.  
  3. Click "Next" to skip the "Device Actions" step, since the chime will be a "Luup Code" added in the next step.
  4. Click "No Luup Code defined" under "Also, execute the following Luup code:" (figure 3.)
  5. Copy-paste the code below into the text box.  Replace XX with the Node ID/"altid" found in step 1, and replace Y with a number from 1-10 - this number (Y) corresponds to each of the ten different chime sounds (figure 4.)  

    luup.call_action('urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:ZWaveNetwork1','SendData',{Node='XX',Data='x87 1 Y'},1)

  6. Click "Save Lua," then click "Finish."
  7. Test your scene by pressing the "Play" button or triggering the event.

with thanks to DomeHA for the above "How to"

Note: This may not be best practice as there will be a time delay in setting the Parameter.

If time is critical between Alerts, consider the use of 2 Message centres, one for Alerts Chimes, the other for Alarms.
