Left if open app, only sends alert to my phone

Hi everyone, just started to use the ST app "Left it open’ , for the fridge, I think the fridge has some sort of black hole or a TV in the back of it, because the kids just open it and stare into it, is there anyway it can tell Alexa to tell them to shut it or turn on a light to red , tried it in Alexa but if the door is open then close she still tells you to close the DOOR lol, many thanks Darren

Yes, Left It open app only send notification or sms in some countries.
Now, You can do an automation with the condition “if the door is open for selected time”. and execute actions for trigger Alexa messages.

Thanks for the reply, I do not see the toggle switch as per your photo, I live in the UK and push notifications work fine, I’m using a Neo coolcam door sensor thanks

If you choose open or closed, the option does not appear

You have to choose the open event or the closed event

Hi Mariano
Thanks but I think your using a different App, I’m using LEFT IT OPEN, is the one in your details DOOR LEFT UNLOCKED because I can see that one in the list. Thanks

Sorry, I could not express myself correctly.
I wanted to tell you that instead of using the “letf it open” SmartApp, now you can do an automation in the new smartthings app and in the “If” part select the open/close sensor and add the condition, that it remains open for a certain time before of executing the “then” part, where you can execute an action with a device to trigger the message in Alexa.


Ok nice one , just set that up going to test it , thanks again
