Ok, SmartPeople using SmartThings,
I’m new to SmartThings and have installed a bunch of sensors and devices with no problem. One of our uses is as a home security system and it is functioning perfectly. When we are home, the siren provides ample notification of an alarm condition. However, when we are out of the house, SmartThings can only issue a text message or push notification. Both of these use the standard short and simple audible notifications provided by Android (I’m using a Samsung Galaxy S5 from ATT). These sounds would not be enough to wake me from a sound sleep were I in a hotel and an alarm condition triggers.
So, has anyone found a way for SmartThings to initiate a custom ringtone on Android and/or Apple. Another solution would be to generate a phone call. I’m looking into whether IFTTT could provide a hook to do this but wanted to get the community’s response. This seems like a reasonable need for anyone using the system as a security system.
Thanks, in advance.
