Hello all! This is my first post in the community as I am just getting started with my SmartThings and home automation. I have discovered you can create your own SmartApps for desired automations. That will be the next thing I research. But I was wondering if there was already one created for my need.
In the cold months, my Schlage lock will jam when it auto locks. I have been successful in getting the door to lock after a couple of tries from my SmartThings app, but it is often after some hours have passed, leaving my home unsecured. I leave first in the mornings, and my (high functioning) mentally handicapped aunt leaves shortly after me. I got the Schlage lock and SmartThings hub to help with her forgetfulness, as she is sometimes so excited to go to her daycare center, she forgets to lock the door or turn off lights. Now the door auto-locks, but when it jams, the door remains unlocked (“unknown” in the app). And she is long gone before she can hear the beep that lets you know the lock was unsuccessful. So is it possible to receive a notification when a lock is jammed (as opposed to locked/unlocked)? How could I make this possible for my system?
Thank you for your time and help! I’ve enjoyed being a reader of the forum so far.
Extra info: I got my SmartThings hub in December. I have one multipurpose sensor, one arrival sensor (for aunt, no smartphone), multiple Arlo Pro cameras, and my aforementioned Schlage lock. I use the SmartThings, Arlo, and IFTT apps.
