I have one ArloQ camera, one door sensor, one Schlag connect lock and Leviton light switches.
I also installed the custom Lock Manager [RELEASE] Lock Manager aoo for the Schlag lock.
Use case: I want to make a light weight home security use case with the following characteristics
- Get notifications (push, emails) when the system is “armed”
- Sound siren
- Record video
I thought that using the home security feature may be easier than making all the states manually… I got it to easily trigger lights (as a test, I am about to get a siren) based on door sensor or motion trigger, but my question is, what is the best practice for:
- Auto disarm the alarm (move to disarm state) when I enter the right keycode in the keypad
- Auto arm when I leave the house (geo location).
2_1. What if I want it to arm only when both me and my wife are not at home? for whatever reason, I can only see me in the list of “things” though I added my wife as a user and she accepted.
- If anyone has experience with the Arlo Q, also would like to know if they use the ST app integrated or they kept it not connected to ST. With the ST integration, it is less clear to me when it is armed and when not (while using the Arlo app it is super clear). i.e. I think the use case of using it as a motion detection is cool, but I think its own way of triggering video recording is pretty good, not sure if I loose that when I do ST integration…
I saw that I can start a routine from the “on-unlock” lock manager, but is that really what people do (routine seems so general and easy to trigger by mistake…)
Last question: I
