Notification if door is open (or unlocked) for X minutes?

With the classic smartthings app, I was able to create a custom monitoring rule that if a door is open for X minutes it would send me a push notification.

I don’t see how to do that with the new smartthings app. Is there a trick I’m missing?

Not sure about the new app but it’s easily done in webCore.

You’ll need the Smartapp called “Left It Open”. Here’s my copy:

Aahh so there’s no built-in capability for this anymore? I’ve honestly not been following the details enough but are any changes coming to publishing smartapps? Or is the smartthings IDE going to remain the way to do this?

I do need to look into webcore more.

Not yet, but I’m hoping this capability gets “built in” to the new app. Publishing SmartApps can still be done via the IDE like you always have, and now the new app gives you the opportunity to install them.

@blake.arnold here’s the door left open X minutes rule I mentioned missing from the new app :wink:


OMG! Thank you so much for this app. I don’t know how I missed it!

Because of you I am able to add one more useful tool to our home automation.
