I have two kwikset locks - one is a 914 and the other is a 916. They work great with Smartthings (v2) accept one thing… I don’t get a battery level from them. Do I have to change/add something to get that? Ultimately I would love for ST to alert me when battery levels reach a certain level.
yeah I will def write them - till working with them on getting Hue’s to work with V2.
I never realized with V1 I didn’t have battery level until one night over the summer I was working late (out of state) and my wife got locked out because the battery died…and she forgot to put the spare key back…that was a very expensive mistake haha
I waited about 7 days after the V2 migration and finally my Kwikset 916 reported a abttery status of 100%. I don’t believe it, but it’s better value than than a dash… I think that I also cursed, cussed, hit refresh 10 times a day, sweared and prayed for a battery status… One of these works.
On the other hand…removing the batteries may solve the problem! I have two locks and “treated” both with resets, z-wave exclusions/inclusions, curses and swears but I only removed the battery pack on the one that is now showing the battery level…so.
Follow the link above to get a custom device type and a super nice app. Just installed both and they are awesome, both by @ethayer.
Also, search the forum for an app by @notoriousbdg called BatteryMonitor. Works well for me - I had to do very minor changes to make it work the way I wanted.
