Hi SmartThings community,
I am looking for a way to monitor the current “dumb” deadbolts in my house. Going beyond knowing if my doors are closed, I would like to know if the deadbolts are locked in the house without having to buy a smart pin based deadbolt for each door.
I found an solution called the INSTEON 2845-222 Hidden Door Sensor which would be the ideal solution, but its Insteon. This solution would allow me to drill a hole in the strike plate sensing if the deadbolt was engaged. So far I have not found anything similar that would be z-wave compatible.
