At the moment SmartThings has an Alarm capability, but this is more of a bell box/alarm box that sits on the side of a building to flash/ring. Actually a lot of people seem to be interfacing with real alarms - i.e. a device which is either disarmed/armedhome/armedaway/alarm/… and could be interpreted as a sensor and a button (i.e. it can tell you it is in armedhome state, or you can set it to armedhome state).
Am I missing something or is this totally impossible right now? I have got the ability to arm/disarm my alarm through SmartThings, and can read the alarm status [disarmed, armedhome, armedaway, alarm (these are the main ones), plus arminghome, armingaway, trouble (these are the additional states possible)]. None of the capabilities supported seem to allow this. And without this feature I cannot integrate the alarm with CoRE (amongst other things), so that when I arm the system it turns all lights off - for example)
Has anybody got any ideas to accomplish this, or how would I submit this to the ST team for an improvement in the ST capabilities?
Thanks in advance
