ADT partnership: ST-ADT touchscreen hub and devices (discussion thread)

That’s the big one here. “Security System” is an undocumented Capability which I hope @Jim is working on adding to the Capabilities Reference. :wink:

I am guessing that these Commands and Attributes are a part of this Capability:

  • Commands: [armStay, armAway, disarm]
  • Attributes: securitySystemStatus, alarm

That’s what happens when a Capability isn’t standardized and documented prior to usage. While “SHM” isn’t implemented as a “Security System Device”, it would be nice if they used the same terminology internally and externally regardless.


Thanks for sharing this one too. Notice the new Capability "Bypassable" (and its Attribute: “bypassStatus”) in the Motion Sensor and…

And… Yup, another undocumented new Capability (@Jim!) in the Keyfob: Capability "Panic Alarm"


Yes: I find this stuff very exciting. ActionTiles is built to be compatible with the Capability model (almost exclusively!). And thus, knowing these new Capabilities and their details is very important and useful for us to implement new Tiles to view and control devices claiming these Capabilities.
