Smart Home Monitor (SHM) Routines, Notifications and Actions
On overwhelming request from users: This solution is designed to make SHM state changes configurable.
It allows you to run routines, check the state of various devices (door, windows, switches, locks, valves, shades, garage doors etc), notify you if they aren’t in the desired position and even change their position.
E.g: when you set SHM to Armed Away, the app can check if if any door/windows are left open and notify you. It can check if switches are left on and then them off, if locks are unlocked and lock them, if garage doors are left open and close them, turn on security cameras and even run a custom routine you have created.
It can even wait for a minute before running theses checks/actions, giving you time to leave the house or allow other running apps/routines time to finish up.
Key features of this solution:
- Manage SHM changes (Armed Away, Home Stay, Disarmed)
- Run routines
- Notify if devices are not in desired position
- Change state of devices
- Configurable delayed checking/running actions (e.g. exit delay)
- Custom notifications for each SHM state
- Individual check and action for each SHM state
- Notify and manage the following types of devices
- Valves (with level setting)
- Garage Doors
- Delayed checking to allow time for Routines to execute or devices to change state after the Mode changes
- Custom messages and monitoring/actions for each Mode or single message for all Modes
- Audio/spoken notifications (e.g. Alexa or Sonos)
- Push notifications
- SMS multiple numbers
- Automatic push notification if there is an updated version of the SmartApp available
