Changing Lock Codes Remotely?


(bkumpula@atsdata.com) #10

I created and installed a smart app for the Yale key free touch pad deadbolt. It was v4.1.5. of the user lock manager. I am getting a user code failed when I submit the new user codes. Is there something I should do different. The lock locks and unlocks fine.


#11

I’d suggest moving to @ethayer’s new Lock Manager: [RELEASE] Lock Manager. It’s been working fine for a number of us, and Erik won’t be supporting the version you’re currently using.

I’ve had no problems with Lock Manager [beta] and my Yale locks — works as expected.


(bkumpula@atsdata.com) #12

OK. Did you install that code in My Device Handlers as well? The support person with SmartThings had me copy it in there and I noticed on RBoy site that he only has it copied into the MySmart App.


#13

You need to install the DTH in My Device Handlers (zwave-lock-reporting.groovy) and two apps in My SmartApps (lock-manager.groovy and lock-user.groovy). Once those are installed, in your ST app, initially start up Lock Manager in the Market Place > Smart Apps> My Apps to configure your locks and users.

Do you not use the lock-user.groovy? When I installed the two you mentioned the smart app does not open the new user tab. It just spins and quits without opening.
Thanks,
Bob

Lock Manager uses lock-user.groovy since it (lock-user.groovy) is a child app.

Hmmm … never had that problem. You might pose that question to Erik in the Lock Manager [beta] thread. The only thing I can think of is to reinstall everything and make sure you change the device handler to “Z-Wave Lock Reporting” for your Yale lock(s) in the IDE.

BTW, which Yale lock model do you have?


(bkumpula@atsdata.com) #16

You are just Highlighting the code and cut and pasting it into the device handler and Smartapps right? Then save and publish. I must be doing something a little wrong.
I have the key free touchscreen deadbolt.
Thanks, for the help. I am sure that I will get it one of these times.

The Lock User Management SmartApp on the RBoy site works with the stock ST Z-Wave Lock device handler thats’ why the instruction is only to install the SmartApp.

Many folks prefer to use the stock Z-Wave Lock DH hence we decided to make the SmartApp work with the stock DH. The advantage of the stock DH is that it runs locally on the hub vs cloud for custom DH’s however the downside is that you lose some of the advanced functionality you can gain by using custom DH’s.

I am looking for my login email. I paid yesterday. How long does it take?
Thanks,

A few minutes. Don’t forget to check your spam mail folder.

Ok. I have been checking them. Still have not seen it.

Ok I am logged in. I want to make sure I install the right device handler and smart apps. Last time I installed Lock user and Lock manager for smart apps and the standard DH. Should I start all over and install the #1 lock multi user management smart app and the Universal Z-wave lock DH?

Rboy and team,
I have two houses with the Lock manager working. My second house that it is installed gives me an unknown user name on all codes that are used. How can I fix this and do the updates that are coming out automatically updating or do I need to do something?

Regarding the updates, you will need to manually update the code, the SmartApp will automatically notify you when new updates are available. The instructions are given on www.rboyapps.com

As for the second lock there could be three reasons for that:

  1. Lock could be defective (what lock/model is the 1st and 2nd lock)
  2. The Device Handler isn’t reporting the correct user, are you using the stock ST DH or the Enhanced Z-Wave Lock DH
  3. The database is corrupted, which is a simple fix - just reopen the app and click Done

The locks are identical. They are the Yale Keyless touch pads. Both are using the same DH as the one that is reporting names correctly. I have two SmartThings under one account. One in Oregon and one in California. I will try and update the rboy: Lock multi user code management with notifications and automatic relock DH. Maybe that will clear it up. Should I be concerned with the lock located out of state. I do not have access to if it does not work? Is there normally problems with the lock not working after the update?

You may want to confirm this in the my devices section that both are actually using the same DH. I suspect this could be the issue. One may be using the stock DH.

EDIT: Remember, if you change the DH you should clear all codes and reprogram them as per the procedure on our website.

Hello, I’m looking for help on generating new User codes. I have a 910 Z-wave lock and am using Lock Manager. The app seems to be working fine. It shows Battery status, Lock/Unlock status, etc. and it is locking and unlocking the lock fine via the app, but when I try to add a new user code it says it “is installed and automating” but no matter how long I wait, the code never seems to work when entered on the physical lock. Is there something I could do to troubleshoot? Anything that I need to do on the physical lock to override the slots via my smartphone?

Guys, so there’s a new Yale Assure lock, it’s the SL model with Zwave. Looks to be one of the best locks on the market bar none.
My question:
Can this lock be used with smartthings or some kind of custom device handlers, to allow remote programming or deleting of user access codes?

Thank you in advance for the help

The lock is very good, one of the particular advantages to Yale over Schlage deadbolts is that Schlage deadbolts tend to die around 50-60% battery. Yale Assure works the deadbolt motor all the way down to 20-25% before it dies (with alkaline batteries). Some of the Yale assure locks tend to have issue with the Z-Wave module but it’s a hit or a miss.

The default smartthing lock handler works great for basic open/close and even basic programming options but if you’re looking at use the advanced features of the lock like auto lock, privacy modes, audio controls, lock-out customization, DPS sensors, RFID etc you may want to check this this custom handler.

As for code programming, basic programming can be done using SmartLocks but if you’re looking for advanced programming/integrated features and you have access to RBoy Apps this is a very powerful/stable option to use (and it works in conjunction with SmartLocks):
