I am looking to create a smartapp that will alert after an inside door (or anything) is left open for a duration of time. There is a similar function in the Home Monitoring section but then it detects all devices tied with home monitoring (e.g. front door) as well. I am down the path of writing a custom event handler that will kick off a timer and alert after the time has passed. If the door is closed, it’ll cancel the timer.
- is there an existing app out there that does exactly this?
- is there state in the app/device? - meaning if I create a global variable for storing the amount of time the door has been open, can i access that variable from the open/close event handlers? i may try this method or figuring out a way to “cancel” the runIn().
- for the life of me, i can’t find documentation on the specific events that the samsung multipurpose sensor has - is that published in the docs somewhere or do I have to debug to find them?
