I want to use Alexa or IFTTT to arm/disarm Smart Home Monitor.
I’m mystified that this seems to be impossible, as it’s surely a really common user story. I want to be able to tell Alexa or Google Home that I’m leaving and have it arm smart things home monitor.
I already have a single command when I leave that does everything: arms the Blink cameras, turns the Hue lights off, lowers the thermostat, etc. There’s nothing very smart about smart things if it can’t manage to arm the motion sensors to send me intrusion alerts.
Opening the app takes time especially as it’s not immediately ready to have the SHM arm button pressed until a few seconds have passed. And you can’t make a widget to set SHM to armed either. Is there a workaround I’m missing?
I’m cross about this and glad I only bought two Samsung sensors: if it’s not possible to do what I need can anyone suggest another system where it is possible?
