I am looking for a way to disable my existing doorbell when our babies door is closed. While the door bell is disabled I want to get push notifications if the button is pressed. I’ve seen ways to get push notification, so I want to throw this past the community to see if there is a cheaper way of doing this. Here is what I was thinking.
From the doorbell button I run two pair of wires 1 to a contact sensor to trigger the push notification, and one to a z-wave light switch. Then I run from the z-wave light switch to the doorbell transformer which is wired to the bell.
Then I use an app that states, when the baby contact sensor is closed turn off the doorbell light switch.
So I have a couple of questions for you all.
- This setup is going to cost close to $100 to setup. Is there a cheaper/better way of doing it?
- Does this setup sound like it’s going to work?
