So, I’m new to this whole world of home automation and could use some help in tweaking my settings.
Here’s the scenario:
I’ve got a front door sensor, a schlage keypad lock, and appropriate motion sensors all set up and working great together. I am using these for a rental which I manage from far away.
I’m able to set the codes remotely (using Rboy’s awesome app), schedule them, etc.
What I’m having issues doing is setting routines and changing the Smart Monitoring mode to only alert me in specific instances.
I would like a renter to be able to:
- use their code and go in. This would switch the mode to “Home”, and it wouldn’t send a text to me
- After their stay, I’d like the system to go back to “armed”
- If our cleaning people come in (they have their own code), the system would go to home, then “away” when they leave
Basically I’m having difficulty wrapping my head around how to make the system figure out if people have locked up and left or whether people are still there. I don’t want it to go into armed mode for the duration of their stay.
Any one have ideas?
