On request from some users.
While there are apps out there which notify you when the door is open for a period of time or to notify / set off an alarm when a door or window is opened/closed (i.e change of state). This app is used to notify you if the door/window is ALREADY open or a switch that's left on when the hub mode changes. It also allows you to monitor locks that are left unlocked and switches that are left on. It also acts like a backup for a failed Routine executions.
So if you're leaving the house or turning in the for the night, you would like to know if you accidentally left a door or window open. For example, when the Goodbye routine runs, it locks up the house and change the mode to Away. The app will notify you if there are any open doors or windows at the very moment the mode changes to Away, since doors/windows cannot close themselves (unlike garage door openers or locks which can operated remotely), this allows you to go and close them and not leave the house with any open doors/windows.
- It can also report switches that are left on and can turn them off.
- It can also report switches that are left off and can turn them on.
- It can also report locks that are left unlocked and can lock them.
- It can also report garage doors that are left open and can close them.
You can configure which door/windows/locks/switches to monitor for each mode separately and also configure notifications (push/sms) for each mode independently. You also have the option for a single notification setting for all modes with individual overrides.
This app now acts like a backup for Routines in some way. If the routine times out while trying to lock doors or turn switches off, this app will notify the user and then attempt to complete the action.
If you have suggestions please let us know and we'll add them to the app.
