I can’t seem to find this (on the forums, or the ability to do such a thing in ST).
I want to link more than one presence sensor (whether mobile or ST sensor) to a single person.
Let’s say I have presence on my iPhone, I have an ST sensor on my keychain, have on in my car, etc. Wouldn’t it be smart to be able to link (or is there any current way) all these sensors to “My name”??
One of the main reasons I want to do this is to prevent double actions from taking place (like the other day I came home and my keychain sensor, I guess, opened my garage door and it was closed and I went inside and a few minutes later my iPhone somehow was delayed and “deteced me coming home” (even though I’m alreayd home…) and started to open my garage door again and I had to close it. Now I’m lucky I caught/saw this – I wouldn’t want this to happen and not notice! (so for the time being I have changed the garage to only use one sensor per person).
That brings me to my second, somewhat related, question; how can I speed up the detection of ST presence sensors? I have to sit in my driveway before the garage opens sometimes; is this a built in mechanism to prevent mis-fires? Or is this maybe becuae my hub is too far? (if so I can just point an older “repater” smart sensr motion detector at the driveway to increase detection time?).
Is there any way to speed up the detection of a ST presence sensor? (I have it set – at least for my garage – that I must be “away” for at least 10 minutes before the garge door opener will work, as to prevent any misfires that may happen due to my sensor being lost and then detected (happens sometimes, but usually is quickly picked back up), and opening the garge by mistake.
Ideally, linking sensors (and then having the option to require specific sensors for an individual to ALL be present, for security, before doing certain actions, like REQUIRE my PHONE and ST KEY sensor to be present before opening the garage would be great).
Any advice on speeding up the detection of presence sensors would be great (and I think adding a repeater pointed at the driveway would help regardless as it may pick up the signal from further away, but a setting change somewhere maybe that would speed this up)?
Another nice idea/integration would be using iBeacons (would help with so many things, such as turning on lights when you enter a certain area, speeding up the detection of phone presence if you had a beacon close by, etc. etc. the possibilities are endless) and this doesn’t require the HUB to have BLE…just the phone/app to use it…
