I’m using SmartThings for monitoring “secure” zones inside a building. I have two modes: staffed and unstaffed. I have two door contacts. I’ve configured automation rules to switch between staffed and unstaffed modes depending on the time of day. If the door contacts are opened during unstaffed mode an alert is triggered as well as a siren.
I’m wondering whether I can add a keypad to manually switch between modes. Ex. entering a code will switch to “staffed” mode and pressing a single button will switch back to “unstaffed” mode - I don’t require enter/exit delays.
I’ve read about the Iris keypad’s but they seem to require a 3rd party app in order to integrate with SmartThings and I was confused about this. It also sounded like most keypads only work with the SmartHomeMonitoring function in SmartThings which I’m NOT using. My current setup just uses automations.
Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks.
