Apartment intercom and Smartthing integration

People have done this in the past by wiring in an in-line device to the buzzer, but all of that depended on the old platform which is going away very soon, so I’m reluctant to recommend even looking at any of that.

Instead, the quickest and easiest way right now is to add a “robot finger“ to just push the existing button. These work fine, are available in a number of countries, and have an official manufacturer Integration with smartthings. I use these in my own house and I’m quite pleased with them. No wiring required and they are easy to remove later if you move out. :sunglasses:

The brand is Switchbot. You will need one button pusher and their mini hub (which is what gives you the smartthings Integration)

Here’s a review I wrote of them last year:

You can buy these on Amazon or at their own site,
