(www.rboyapps.com - Make your home your butler!) #1

Introducing Routines Backup

On request from users: This solution is designed to verify that SmartThings Routines ran their execution to completion. Routines can timeout, actions aren’t completed due to mesh issues or a variety of other issues.

This acts likes a backup for your Routines, it detects when a Routine is run, verifies that the configured actions were completed and if not, it also, provides an option to complete those actions.

You can verify the state of door, windows, switches, locks, valves, shades, garage doors, thermostats etc, notify you if they aren’t in the desired state and even update their state if required. You can even re-run the same routine or another routine as a backup action.

It also provides you with the option to delay verifying the routine execution giving the routine/mesh time to complete their actions and/or an exit delay if needed.

Key features of this solution:

  1. Create verification actions for each Routine separately
    • Run routines
    • Notify if devices are not in desired position
    • Change state of devices
    • Configurable delayed checking/running actions (e.g. exit delay)
    • Custom notifications for each Routine
    • Individual check and action for each Routine
  2. Notify and manage the following types of devices
    • Doors
    • Windows
    • Switches/Lights
    • Locks
    • Valves
    • Shades
    • Garage Doors
    • Thermostats
