[RELEASE] Lock User Management (LUM)

I want to be able to have my lock remain unlocked for an extended period of time (like 30 minutes) when a family member arrives. I’ve turned off auto-relock in the DHT, but how exactly do I set it in the LUM? I found a place to set a re-lock after closing.

How exactly can I set my door to auto-lock after some time after being unlocked?

thanks in advance!

Tap the Door Open/Close Actions on the main page, enable the Relock door automatically feature and then it will give you an option to set it to 30 minutes. If a door sensor is added then it wait for the door to close before locking it, if not it will lock after the specified period.

Note: The AutoLock on your physical Lock should be disabled for this feature to work properly (which you’ve confirmed). Just FYI, if you’re using the RBoy Apps DTH for your devices it can check the current state of your hardware AutoLock on your lock and notify the SmartApp (the stock ST device handler doesn’t report this information), see image below for a sample notification.

I actually don’t see either of those on my app (v07.07.06)

Thank you to all our testers/users for your feedback on this incremental update

Lock User Management - Version 07.08.00

  • Create custom keypad lock actions when using arming keypads for away/stay/night buttons
    • Run routines
    • Change modes
    • Turn switches on/off
    • Lock other locks
    • Close garage doors
  • Synchronize keypad (button lights) with SHM/ADT changes when Control SHM/ADT using keypad is enabled

Some examples of how folks are using this app:

  1. I give my landlord an access code for the lock but I want it disabled when I’m at home (presence based users)
  2. When my children are at home and the parents aren’t home, then allow the babysitter’s code to work (presence based users)
  3. When we’re away, allow my neighbor’s code to work (mode based users)
  4. I can schedule a code for my nanny with multiple schedules per day (morning and evening)
  5. I can program ahead for my vacation rental properties with a start and end date/time for my guests
  6. When I lock my door from outside I want my house to lock up behind me (close garage doors, lock all other doors, turn off switches, arm the security system etc)
  7. When I unlocked my outer door I want the inner door to also unlock and the lights to turn on but only at night
  8. I want my employees to have access only during business hours or on specifics days/modes
  9. I want to open Garage door A when I press the away button and Garage door B when I press the Stay button on my Keypad
  10. I want to control my SHM/ADT state using an external keypad and also control my patio door

@RBoy -

Why does the app always stop working where there is an update? I always know an update is needed when my SHM won’t change modes as it normally does. This is extremely unsafe. What if I’m not home to change and my family thinks the system is arming when it isn’t. Why wouldn’t the current version just continue to work? Why does it need to break down as updates come out?

EDIT: It looks like SHM was having an outage yesterday Smart Home Monitoring Not Working

:slight_smile: I like the way you think. On a more serious note, what you’re describing is a platform timeout caused by increased load or an internal issue and not related to the app.

I think it’s a timing coincidence. We release updates tend to coincide with ST deployments to their platform (Tues/Thurs).
We’ve been hearing/noticing timeouts on the platform since yesterday across many apps so I’m guessing it’s either a ST load issue or something in the deployment, either way it’ll sort itself out in a day or so.

To protect users from these issue we released a bunch of apps to check if the Routines executed properly or if the mode/SHM changes did their things and complete it for them if the platform didn’t complete/timed out for any reason.

Hi Guys, for the lock software, do I need to install both the smart app & dth

Which App, if it is the full Rboy app , you need the driver also

I downloaded the lock user management smart app. I also see there is a universal enhanced zwave lock in the device things handler. I’m wondering if I should have both installed? I dont see an unlocking feature with presence in the smart app. Nor do I see enabling the alarm functions in the smart app.

Hi @all4dom.

I’ve installed both, and they work great together:

DTH - Universal Z-Wave Lock With Alarms
App - Lock User Management

Ok thanks. That’s what I was trying to.find out. Does the universal dth allow geofencing? I want the lock to open when I come home.

I use a Routine to disarm SHM, run automatons, and unlock locks based on a combination of mobile devices and ST arrival sensors, so yes.

You don’t need both–unless you need some of the advanced features of RBoy’s DTH–I am using RBoy’s smartapp with the default SmartThings DTH for a Z-Wave lock and it works perfect.

I have the Yale Keyless Connected smart lock which reports when maximum invalid code attempts is exceeded. I can see in My Home>Things>lockname>Recently in ST app that this condition is being reported but I don’t get a push notification from the Lock User Management app.

I have installed the Universal Enhanced Z-Wave Lock DTH but I suspect it’s not working with this lock - for example, in the ST app on my iPhone I changed the lock setting to reduce the ‘Wrong code entry limit’ value from 5 to 3 (to speed up my testing) but the lock continued to allow 5 attempts before entering Incorrect PIN lockout (which is also still 3 minute even though in the setting on my phone it is 60 seconds).

Any idea as to what I can try next to get push notifications for tamper alerts?


This application appears to have a multitude of functions for locks and I have been debating if it will meet my use case. I am trying to obtain some additional information regarding the capability of this application to control some of the settings of the Schlage Z-Wave Connect Century (BE469).

Can this application allow the disabling and enabling of the Lock and Leave setting based on user codes entered onto the keypad?

Example: Having a guest code inputted turns on a guest mode for the home and disables lock and leave so that when the guest leaves they have to input the code again (Not simply hit the Schlage button on outside) to lock the door. The code being input again by the guest would turn off guest mode and re-enable lock and leave setting.

@rboy @maddie Could I request a bit more flexibility with the ADT Panel be added into the lock/unlock actions?

I have a webcore piston that automatically sets the location mode to away/home and either locks or unlocks the door based on presence. When this piston fires, the app views the lock method as manual. This is causing issues in this scenario because the only option to arm from a manual lock entry is armStay. I’d still like to keep the option to have armStay on a manual lock so that when I’d turn the lock from inside it would armStay.

I think the way to accomplish this would be to have the option of “When in modes XYZ, armAway” and “When in modes ABC, armStay” and “When in modes LMN, do nothing”. I could build this out through a webcore piston to accomplish what I need, but I think this could be a valuable option for all users.

@RBoy does this mean you’re can integrate your paid code into GitHub? That would be so awesome!



Doubtful - GitHub Free is for noncommercial (read: unpaid) personal ventures. It would definitely be a violation of the ToS for that kind of account. GitHub Enterprise might work, depending on the security model but I dont know how much that license would be or if it would be commercially viable for thier company… In either case, unsure if ST can/would support logging into a secured GitHub Repo to pull - which is what they’d need to make this successful in ANY licensing model.


@RBoy @maddie @tonesto7 I want to start by saying thank you for your amazing and relentless work, dedication and support offered to the ST community. Also big thanks and appreciation for @JDRoberts for being one of the greatest helpers around.

I want to kindly ask for your help regarding notifications with a Z-wave Yale nexTouch lock. Here’s what I have:

  • Amazon Echo gen 1

  • Yale Lock nexTouch with Door Position Sensor

  • DTH - Universal Z-Wave Lock With Alarms

  • App - Lock User Management

  • ST Classic app (Hub v2)

  • Echo Speaks by @tonesto7

  • Landroid

I want to have automatically played personalized notifications when a certain person unlocks the door, via Echo Speaks or Landroid or webcore.

Example: When the door is unlocked by John that has his own 4 digit pin assigned, the Amazon Echo to say “Hello John, welcome home!” And when the door is unlocked by someone else to have Amazon Echo speak that person’s name in the announcement. So when Jane comes home and unlocks the door, the Echo to say “Hello Jane, welcome home!”

I am attaching screenshots to show that the play notifications option is grayed out and can’t click on it. Maybe I am missing something, could please anyone help me with this?
