Add door lock to 'Right now' status in SHM?


(David) #1

Please excuse if this is simple one or been covered, searching here and google didnt reveal anything obvious.
In case it matters my kit is:
Smartthings hub with door sensor and a Yale keyless with zwave module.

Question is -
The status of the lock and the door appear in the ‘my home’; section.
But in the Home solutions/mysmart home monitor, under the ‘right now’ tab - I can only see the status of the door sensor, but would also like to see the status of the lock. Is this possible?

I have added a monitoring rule for the lock, but nothing shows up.

Pretty sure that tab within SHM will only tell you about contact sensors, there’s no way to configure other devices to show up there.

If you created a monitoring rule with SHM, then you can receive an alert when the lock is locked or unlocked, but that doesn’t result in any visible indicator that can be seen in a dashboard.

I don’t have any locks, but what happens if you add the lock to the “favorites” section of the dashboard (right above the “home solutions” section)?

Great idea on the favourites! That’s even better than what I wanted. It now displays the status of the lock and door on the home screen. Thanks.

One thing I have noticed with this is that the status of the lock isnt concurrent with its actual state. When unlocked, the status will revert back to locked after a few seconds, when in fact the Lock is set to relock after 90 seconds.
