Home Notify is a SmartApp for SmartThings that performs various types of notifications when certain things happen at home. This app can be installed multiple times to allow for different profiles based on your current mode.
The purpose of this app is to replace some of the functionality of Smart Home Monitor though I can be used along with it. I am a believe in smaller is better / purpose built is better.
Home Notify allows you to select contact, motion sensors, and moisture sensors to trigger your notifications. You can also select a single mode or multiple modes so that this only executes when in a specific mode. If you want Home Notify to do things differently based on Mode, just install another instance of the SmartApp.
You can choose to be notified in a variety of ways: Alarms, Music Players, Speech Synthesizers & Push Notifications [any combination of them]. Set off a siren or play a track on an alarm, play a track on a music player, and / or have speech synthesizer announce the event description (think: Front door has opened).
Again: If you have several scenarios you would like to control, just install the app from “My Apps” multiple times.
Also, this app also has the ability to suppress notifications during an arrival window. For example, if you set your arrival window to 5 minutes, the app will ignore your arrival and not set off alarms / notification during that window. This is the only part of the app I haven’t done extensive testing on.
Because I am a believer in smaller is better, I don’t have plans to add anything related to turning lights on, … I have another app for that called Trigger My Lights if you are interested.
