I started using smart alarm again because of the issue of Smart home monitor SHM not working now and the recommendation that we stop using it… I noticed it did not have hue support and I like to turn on a hue bulb and leave it on like it did in SHM so I can visually see there was an alert. (I don’t use the siren unless the house is empty as it is too unreliable and I don’t want to piss off my wife)
Anyway, Since smart alarm did not have it I modified it to add this capability in the alerts. I also noticed that the history page was not implemented completely. I finisihed that.
here is a synopsis
- Version 2.4.3 modified by lgk (3/21/2016)
12 * modified by lgkahn to add hue color alerts,
13 * also finished implementation of the history status page in the smart app, so we can see event histories. (implementation was incomplete for this in the original released version)
14 * alarm is cleared after 3 minutes… i didnt want to change that as i am not sure making it longer will cause a timeout in smartthimgs
15 * I had the hue in clearalarm and it was resetting after the 3 minutes. but I dont want that… I want the light on till I turn it
16 * off to show there was an alarm, So I changed this behavior… It only fully clears when initizing the smart app.
