Wow JDroberts i’m very glad that you pay attention to me. I follow your post and i consier you one of the best in this market.
Anyway i live in Italy where smarthings is a very DIY, no support and no device.
The zipato one must stay inside and i don’t like to use it after door opened. I use vibration to send a first beep to the siren. I want prevent intrusion not manage it.
The smarthings presence sensor is the best but it is expensive and life battery is very poor.
Geofancing is a good idea but you have to open daily the app, you cannot apply this Handling to the Whole family.
Bluetooth is sleeping in the hub.
I use a movement sensor that let the siren beep if the alarm is armed and somebody arrive close to the door, if you heard a beep means that the system is armed then i have hide a xiaomi button.
If you hold 3 seconds the button the siren beep twice, it means system disarmed.
Best things for me is a keyfob with good battery life with the best level of automation to arm and disarm.
I know is a bit complicated that’s why i choose smarthings, everytime there is a warkaround…. Or i hope so
