so i’m looking for something that seems like it should be very simple but can’t seem to do it.
We are installing a Schlage key code lock and we want to use it to disarm our Scout monitored SHM system.
Scout takes 45 seconds before responding (to be able to turn it off if it goes off) from what i can tell it would be fairly simple to set up the lock to change the mode using a virtual switch-- however the timing on it won’t be perfect and by the time we open the door the siren can/will most likely sound sometimes.
What i’d like to do is:
When door opens 10 seconds wait before anything happens with sirens (to allow time for the cloud to work)
From 10-45 seconds engage a “Beep” letting you know it’s still armed
at 45 seconds i want the siren to go off full blast and the system to alert scout.
We use the Dome sirens and ST multi sensors on doors
I think i can kludge this together to make that work-- but i’m not sure it will allow me to alert scout which is a big part of it.
Allowing this type of (fairly standard alarm behavior) in SHM would be awesome-- but if not nay ideas on how it could be accomplished? I really like ST for my home alarm system but its just not exactly there.
before anyone says anything about “just use geofencing” we spend a lot of time at neighbors houses and out in the neighborhood where the system may try to unlock/disarm. Also i don’t want the system disarming until i’m at the door. not when i’m still 1/2 a mile away…
let me know your thoughts
