Is anyone using the built-in Meross integration with SmartThings? It seems to work fine for the most part, but the SmartThings app has some limitations that really prevent me from fully utilizing the device. I’d like to ditch the Meross app and use SmartThings exclusively, but in order to do that, I need to perform a few basic automations.
- Open or close the garage door (seems to work fine in ST)
- Check the status of the garage door (seems to work fine in ST)
- Trigger a notification if the garage door is open at a certain time (seems to work fine in ST)
- Trigger a notification if the garage door is left open for a specified period
The fourth item above doesn’t seem to be possible in SmartThings. The built-in automations don’t allow me to trigger an action when a device is set to “open” for a specified period of time. I went hunting around in the built-in IDE SmartApp templates and found several templates written by Samsung that ought to be able to do exactly what I want: “Garage Door Monitor”, “Left It Open”, and “Ridiculously Automated Garage Door”.
However, I tried all 3 of these SmartApps and none of them will let me select the Garage Door opener as the device to be controlled. They all just tell me that I do not have any compatible devices to use with the SmartApp. Am I missing some obvious step, or is there a workaround? SmartThings customer service has not been helpful and say that they don’t support their own SmartApp templates.
