[RELEASE] Lowes Iris and XFinity CentraLite keypad DTH + Apps

OK I am still having one problem. Entry and Exit delays are not working. Its set to 30 seconds. But when I use the keypad to ARM and open the door(with door sensor) the siren goes off right away.

The keypad shows a status of “ENTRYDELAY” under devices in smartthings…

EDIT: OK I figured it out. You cannot use Smart Home Monitor if your using Smart Alarm and ULM. You also MUST set the routines in ULM AND in Smart Alarm.

Lock Manager does not support EntryDelay. One way to achieve an entry delay is with my Smartapp, SHM Delay.
Btw ULM is deprecated, use ethayer’s Lock Manager

So use ethayers Lock Manager and SHM Delay along with SHM(SmartThings official app)?

That’s correct. Be sure to use the keypad dth suggested in the SHM Delay documentation

Can someone post a step by step instruction to add Iris Keypad as a new device? Some of the instruction have “Install DTH” as the first step, but how to install DTH? Do I have to add my hub to the Developer page first? Thank you much!

When you are ready

  1. install a Keypad DTH
    The direct link to the Keypad DTH I suggest is at the end of this message.
    The Repo settings are miriad Centralite-Keypad master The name is Centralite Keypad.
  2. Pair the keypad with the Hub and test it
  3. then install @ethayer’s Lock Manager
  4. then my app SHM Delay

I copy-pasted the above code and clicked “Create”

I got the following error message:

No signature of method: script_app_metadata_e79af261_7c81_4e4e_a200_f12f886c9467.metadata() is applicable for argument types: (script_app_metadata_e79af261_7c81_4e4e_a200_f12f886c9467$_run_closure1) values: [script_app_metadata_e79af261_7c81_4e4e_a200_f12f886c9467$_run_closure1@2e768059] Possible solutions: getMetadata(), getState(), setState(java.lang.Object), metaClass(groovy.lang.Closure)

What am I doing wrong?

Add it to devices not apps

@tapsemi, You have to install select the Lock Manager first (which is the second option), before installing the other 3 childs. And another tip is to pick “Z-wave Lock with Code” as the type under IDE My Device for the Lock Manager to recognize it has a keypad devise.

I was able to install the Lock Manager smartapp. But my next problem is how to set disarm passcode.

This is what I did on the SmartThing (ST) app on my phone:
Markplace> Lock Manager> New Keypad, and added the smartapp on the keypad.
Markplace> Lock Manager> New User> Set Code 4-8 digits, select slot 1.

After doing that I the keypad appeared to be armed when I arm the ST app. But right now the keypad will trigger an alarm when I press any key on the keypad. It’s a good sign because it means the keypad and ST is communication, but that also means the passcode doesn’t work. How do I use the keypad to disarm ST system? Thank you.

Really shout out to all the programmers. You guys are amazing typing up the code and instructions! Really appreciate your works!!

Are you installing a keypad or a lock?

In either case

  1. remove the market place app
  2. then follow the directions to install this lock manager into the IDE.
  3. Then on your phone go to Automations–>tap Smartapps on top menu–>scroll to bottom–>tap + Add a Smartapp–>Scroll to bottom–>tap + My apps. Install lock manager from the list

OK I need some help with the IOS keyboard config! I was going around the house calibrating all my temperature sensors. I came to the Centralite keypad, and was not able to use a minus 5 degrees. There is only an option for + degrees. Can someone give me some guidance on this?

I’m looking at getting an Iris, but need some direction on what can/can’t be used together.

My current setup is SHM with a few local devices, and one simulated device (to allow for entry delays through WebCore). I’d like to keep using SHM as the “brains” due to local processing, but others have indicated that lock manager and SHM should not be used together.

If I don’t use lock manager, am I still able to create codes and use SHM for “monitoring” and WebCore for entry delays?

FYI, SHM doesn’t run completely locally.

The alerts you setup in SHM can run locally, assuming all the devices themselves are eligible for local execution (I think).

However, arming and disarming SHM requires that your hub has an active internet connection and the ST cloud is functioning too.

And any SHM monitoring rule that incorporates a simulated sensor wouldn’t run locally too.

At least that’s how it was working the last time I checked.

Provided the devices are all local, I believe that arm/disarm would also be local. And again, as long as devices are local, the alerts are also local.

I’m aware that using a simulated sensor and WebCore would make that component not run locally (and I accept that part of the system would be down in the case of an outage), but is there some way to integrate the keypad into SHM such that I can keep as much as possible running locally (ie, the non simulated devices), since we know that lock manager runs entirely in the cloud?

But how would you arm/disarm SHM if the cloud were down? Mobile app, routines, WebCoRE, none of them would be functional.

Iris keypad isn’t officially supported, so it requires a custom device handler. No custom device handlers are eligible to run locally, unfortunately.

Hi. I bought the IRIS keypad on ebay and am in the process of integrating it into my system. I installed the DTH, ULM and SM apps at the top of this post. When I followed the instructions, I was able to get the keypad to “Arm” (and disarm) the system; however, whenever motion was triggered, or a door was opened (past the delay time), SM fails to indicate/recognize that there is an intrusion. I am therefore not able to get a text notification if there is an intrusion while the system is armed.

To remedy this, I re-installed the ULM and SM app and configured as suggested. This did not make a difference. Reading through the previous posts, I noticed that SM could conflict with SHM, so I uninstalled SHM. This also did not make a difference.

I am intrigued by @arnb recommendation to use e Thayer’s lock manager and the delay for SHM. I however do not know how to re-install SHM.

Does anybody have a suggestion on how I can get the ULM/SM recognize/notify me of an intrusion?

Does anybody know how to re-install SHM?

I appreciate the support on these forums!

I’m not sure this will work but it’s worth a try.

  1. In your ST phone app, tap on bottom ‘Automation’
  2. tap ‘+ Add a SmartApp’
  3. tap ‘:heart: SmartThings Recommends’
  4. Tap ‘Smart Home Monitor Security’
  5. You are on your own. Let us know if it works

SM = smart alarm? Smart alarm is a pretty old smartapp at this point that’s not really actively developed/updated anymore. Smart home monitor, for all its flaws, is a better bet in my opinion. Especially with the delay smartapp from this thread.

If you uninstall SHM security in the IDE you should be able to reinstall it from the dashboard in the mobile app.

@arnb reinstallation of SHM worked as you indicated. Thanks for this and all of your efforts to help the community.
