I have a Vision Wireless Shock Sensor (brand new though battery at 66% already)
I’ve searched and found a variety of code for Device Types and Smart Apps that seem to relate, but I’m having difficulty understanding what I need to do to get to my goal.
I was able to set up a Custom monitoring rule, though my device is only seen as an Open/Close sensor…which I assume is why I can’t use it in some of the existing SmartApps that want a vibration sensor.
I’d also like to be able to flash a light for a short period of time, but the Custom rule only seemed to let me set brightness and color.
How do I modify the configuration of the device, or adjust the SmartApps to get what I’m looking for?
I am a programmer, but I’m a little unclear how to use a custom Device Handler vs. a Smart App.
Total newbie…and haven’t read a manual yet…but I’d have thought this would be a feature already in place, and not require any custom programming. Its been a bit confusing that code and comments seem to relate to an older version of the SmartThings portal, so some terms have changed etc.
