Sitting at work when suddenly i get a notification from @ethayer 's smart lock app saying the front door was unlocked using the cleaners code.
I first thought it was a glitch since the cleaners were just there on Monday, but decided it was worth looking into… pulled up my Dlink camera app… and then my heart sank as I heard voices in my house.
I then switched back to ST, and using @tobycth3 's SimpliSafe integration, I armed my system AWAY (my wife must have forgotten, and sadly there is no PANIC mode remotely). I waited for the unknown person to trip a motion alarm, and knew the dispatch would not be far behind.
As I was driving home to meet with police and see what damage may have been done in those few minutes, my wife called me telling me the Cleaning Co called her to complain the alarm went off. Her response of course was WTF are you doing in my house. Turns out they had forgotten to do a few things and thought they would pop in today and finish up, despite my wife telling them this was not an option.
So all in all, there was no real danger or theft, just miscommunication on their part. But the great apps developed here were the only way I knew something was going on at all.
