Hey everyone, I tried a few searches but I’m struggling to find something for my specific scenario.
In my office, we have a wired door chime that goes off any time someone comes in the front door to the business. The problem is that some of the offices that aren’t near the door chime speaker can’t hear it.
My thought is to install a SmartThings hub, get a locally executing open/close sensor to put on the door (to reduce latency), and link it to a local speaker/chime/etc that I could plug in (or can be battery powered if necessary).
My goal is to have the latency as close to 0 as possible, so that if someone needs to greet the person coming in the door, they know immediately when the door opens, as it takes a good 15+ seconds to walk to the front of the building. The ideal situation would be: Front door opens, chime/speaker goes off in less than a second (2 seconds at most)
Is there a local executing option that would work for my situation? If only a cloud based solution exists, that’s fine too, just thought I’d mention local in case that’s an option.
