Is there a way to delay smart home hub from triggering an alarm for a minute or so to wait for it to detect a presence sensor. When I come home and open my door, it immediately triggers the alarm then a few seconds later, detects my presence sensor and disarms the system. Is there any way to delay it just a few seconds or a minute so it has time to register the presence sensor?
Have you just tried making your Geo fence circle a little larger in the app, that way it’ll disarm when your slightly further away.
You, like me and many others on this forum want Smarthome to have a builtin entry delay. However, it can be simulated by:
- go to ide.smartthings.com, click in “My Locations”, click on your location name (important or you may get the wrong server), then click my devices, then create a simulated contact sensor.
- Change Smarthome to monitor the simulated contact sensor, and remove the entry door from monitoring.
- Run the following two Pistons in CoRE or WebCore
…If original real Entry Door sensor contact changes to Open (Restriction Armed/Stay or Armed/Away)
*Using Simulated Contact Sensor
–>Close (If it is open here SmartHome does not issue an Alarm on this sensor)
–>Wait 30 seconds
–>Open (this triggers Smarthome)
–>Wait 5 seconds
…Check if original real Entry Door Sensor is open when system is Armed. It is no longer monitored by SmartHome
Trigger happens every 1 minutes AND
FrontDoor Sensor contact was open for at least 1 minute
Restriction: execute only in Armed/Stay or Armed/Away
–>Send SMS message (or notification)
Once I’ve created a Simulated Contact Sensor, how do I get it to show up on my list of devices in the WebCore dashboard? I currently don’t have the ability to use this in any pistons.
