[RELEASE] Universal Enhanced Z-Wave Lock Device Handler for Schlage, Yale, Kwikset, IDLock, Popp, Danalock, August Pro, Keywe, Philia, Samsung

Hi @RBoy / @maddie ,

I just installed the device handler in the web IDE. However, when I open it in the ST Classic App on Samsung Note 8, none of the tile icons are showing. I have a Schlage Connect BE469ZP lock. How do I resolve this?

Also, is it possible to see the tiles from the device handler under the new Smartthings App, or is it just available in ST Classic App? I am unable to find way to access the device handler under the new Smartthings App (i.e. can’t find the tiles that I see in the Classic App).

thanks for the help.

Any way to get rid of the smoke detector “feature” for this lock?

Commenting the smoke detector capability should remove it, but I haven’t tested this personally.

It doesn’t. Maybe @RBoy has a recommendation or maybe even an update. Also would be fantastic if the tile reported “Locked” or “Unlocked” instead of the useless " Clear".

When using this handler and/or the LUM smartapp, can i use a certain keypad code to only trigger an action (i.e. not unlocking the door) in SmartThings? Lock is a ZWave Yale YRD226

It works, but you have to remove and add the device

Hi there. Yes you can set custom actions for each user using the LUM SmartApp and this device handler. Please check the FAQ page to ensure you have a buffering device within 15ft of your lock for reliable operation.

@timemage719 it looks like you’re using 2.18 version of the ST Classic app which is broken and doesn’t display icons. Please report it to ST support (support@smartthings.com) so they can expedite a fix. If you have an Android phone you could find a way to downgrade to version 2.17 until ST fixes the bug.

@maddie I am using 2.18.1 (which most people said fixes the issue) but I don’t think so. I’ll try to look for v2.17, any suggestion on where I can download one safely?

2.18.1 most certainly does NOT fix the icon bugs.

Can anyone help answer this question? Thanks in advance.

is it possible to see the tiles from custom device handler under the new Smartthings App, or is it just available in ST Classic App? I am unable to find way to access the Enhanced Z-Wave device handler under the new Smartthings App (i.e. can’t find the tiles that I see in the Classic App).

Autolocking too soon — is there a way to change this?

I have the Schlage BE469 and have installed this custom handler in my V3. Autolocking is happening within 30s and would like to change this to 300s (5min).

I tried changing this in settings but that looks to be for Yale. Anyway to do that for Schlage in the code?

Thanks in advance!!

I was having the same problem and seemed to have fixed it. Get out your original Schlage instructions and DISABLE auto lock… it is the very last instruction on my instruction sheet. Don’t confuse locking by pushing the word Schlage on the keypad with autolocking after 30 seconds.

Hi there. Schlage locks have a fixed auto lock interval of 30 seconds. Yale and other locks have the ability to adjust this timeout which is what you’re setting in the settings page. You can find details about lock specific features in this post.

If you would like to use a custom interval you can disable the auto lock feature on your lock with this device handler using the Classic app and clicking on the auto lock tile and then use a SmartApp like LUM or RLA to set the auto relock option with a custom timeout in minutes (from the Door Open/Close settings page).

I noticed that this lock handler, and some of the built-in Z-Wave ones, appear as running in Cloud in the IDE. Is that used only for some of the functions? I plan on using codes it to disable intruder alerts (with actions controlled by a virtual switch that runs Local), and wouldn’t like alarms sounding when internet is down (not that uncommon here).

All custom DTH’s (including this one) run in the cloud.

I understand that. So a lock won’t work at all without internet? There must be some level of local ZWave features/communication going on?

I guess my main doubt is if the codes I configured in Lock User Management app will be saved into the lock and work locally, and if custom actions will still trigger local switches.

The codes get saved to the lock and they work even with internet down… So you can unlock and lock and get in. That’s a function of the lock itself.

That said, custom actions wouldn’t trigger without internet.

As @nathancu says, the codes are stored in the lock. So the locking and unlocking of the door directly works without the internet. Other than that, no.

Fair enough, looks like I’d still want to get some sort of local-running keyfob or keypad as a backup to disable alarms.

I think you’re referring to this topic about zigkee keypads DTH, this topic for the z-wave locks DTH. We can continue the conversation there.
