Hi everyone, could any more experienced user help me with a way or device recommendation to integrate my Electric Deadbolt with smartthings? The deadbolt is as simple as Closed until someone hits the button from inside home a little pressure on button release the deadbolt which remains open until manually closed. I would like to remotely open my gate through smartthings, I had seen things like relays and dry-contact switches but I really don’t understand enought to buy any of them to try, and I don’t know if there are some smartthings compatible devices. I cannot change this deadbolt

This is my deadbolt as I bought on Amazon:

Gaate Locks With Deadbolt And Deadlatch Locking (Electric Left Hand Inward) Has Yale Keyway, Power Supply, Exit And Chime Buttons, Buzzer +50FT. Electric Wiring https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00C7VE9WK/ref=cm_sw_r_em_apa_YXeYzbF1A1G90

Thank you so much in advance for any advice.

Are you in the US, Canada, or some other country? And do you already have a SmartThings hub, and if so for what region? Once we get the answers to those questions we can help better.

I have a couple of ideas but meanwhile, I’m going to also tag @johnconstantelo Who usually likes this kind of project. :sunglasses:

Usually you could use a Z-Wave relay in between the button circuit. So when you activate the relay from the app, or Minimote the circuit is closed, The only problem is that it has to have a timer or Piston to control how long the relay stays closed. not sure if WebCoRe or CoRE can handle seconds instead of minutes. Plus I really don’t like a door lock controlled from the cloud. There are many creative people here lets see what they come up with.:sunglasses:

Hi thank you so much for your interest.in my question, I am at Costa Rica, here I have my fully functional SmartThings hub working for Lights movement sensors, and some others. I should be able to install everything because here almost anything is US standards compatible.
