I just installed gate lock and I’d like to somehow integrate an open/close sensor.
This is the lock:
Basically its just a dumb lock, when the right code is entered (or exit button pushed, from inside) it connects + & - terminals to release the latch.
I’m wondering how to integrate an open/close sensor directly so I can get an alert when the lock is engaged. I realize it will not report if the gate is physically opened or closed. In an ideal world I’d like both, to know when the lock is engaged and if the actual get is left in an open or closed position.
Here is the manual for the lock:
Any idea’s would be appreciated. Thank you.
P.S. This is outside so it has to withstand NYC weather (humid summers/cold winters). There MAYBE room inside the latch mechanism but I’m not sure I haven’t opened it.
