Here is my scenario… I have 34 devices… several Open/Close Sensors. 6 moths ago, the living room slider began reports a reversed status (mobile app and IDE shop closed when the magnet contact is in an open state). Other than reporting reversed status, the device is functioning normally and reliably.
I went through several sessions with SmartThings Support and they wrote it off as defective. I replaced the sensor and all was well again. I now have two more sensors (Office Slider and Kitchen slider again are now reporting reversed status (grrr). Obviously I can 1. replace the otherwise functional sensors. 2. remove the sensors from the Smart Home Monitor and write rules that Alert when the door “Closes” (actually opens).
I want to modify (create) a device handler that will receive the reversed status and display correctly in the mobile app. (Dashboard shows “closed and blue” when the device is actually reporting “open and orange”
I have been able to modify the SmartSense Open/Closed sensor device handler so at least the “open” status and tile are blue, but beyond that, I am stuck.
Anyone have a similar situation an offer assistance with modifying the device handler to reflect a reversed status?
Thanks in advance,
