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

I assume you mean after I have switched it out right?

Hi @RBoy I have a feature request for you, or maybe I just need some guidance on how to do what I need to do?

I have the Yale Key Free lock, I’m intending to replace an existing door lock and it will be fitted in the next couple of weeks. I have you DTH installed and it;s working well.

Here’s the question… we live in a fairly rural area and the current door lock enables the door to be opened from the outside (unless it’s locked with the key). We generally lock the door at sunset and open it at sunrise, we have quite a few people coming and going during the day so this is good for us. Whilst that will horrify some of you it works for us.

On the Yale lock it appears that this feature is implemented as passage mode, that is the ability to open the door from the outside when unlocked.

What would have been really nice and solved all of my issues is if Yale had done two things:

  1. Permitted a permanent passage mode (it gets reset after each lock and you have to re-enable passage mode)
  2. Permitted the disabling of the audio message “Passage Mode enabled” which is heard when you enable passage mode (which you have implemented as Autolock).


What I really need is for the lock to enter passage mode whenever I unlock the door. I’m guessing that you’re going to tell me to use Core to do that???

I’m also left with having to listen to passage mode enabled overtime I set autounlock?


Yep you got it! I need to check if there is an API exposed for that or if we need to code it.

I didn’t get your second request

Didnt realize you were requesting payment for these. No problem with it, just dont have any money. Matter of fact I have 11 bucks in my bank account right now. Sure wish you had an option to purchase each code separately. Half of the items you have created for arent something I can even use. Cheers!

Second request was could you add an option within the app that automatically puts it in passssge mode when unlocking. Thinking about that though a manual unlock wouldn’t put it in passage mode whereas core. Thanks for response.

So tagging @Andrew_Taylor who has managed to do this, could you share how you’ve done it:

EDIT: I believe that turning off autoLock in the lock enables Passage Mode for Yale.

Hey RBoy, I installed the new app and dh this morning. My old lock manager now shows nothing. I went into the new app and it was blank as well.It never showed the codes that were already programmed.

What do I need to do from here. Id like to get those old codes wiped out or at least reporting for me.

Use this app, this thread is for the DH only.

yep, as per RBoy, I’ve got passage mode set up.

What I did is create a rule where if SHM is in a disarmed state (and again I have various rules that determine this, but not relevant for this topic), the door has disableAutolock() turned on. It does however bark out “Passage mode on” the first time the door is closed after an unlock. Couldn’t work out how to turn off the sound. Well, I could turn off ALL sound notifications but not specify the passage mode one.

Thanks. I turned all the audio off but it still states Passage Mode On"

I set up a rule in CORE to turn passage mode on the minute I unlock. Works fine for my uses. I’ve got a bit of tape of the the speaker to reduce the volume of the message. Thanks.

Love the DH and App for locks, but still very inconsistent.

I have 2 Yale locks, one touch and one physical buttons. The touch, which I had first, worked perfectly for a while but now won’t auto relock. The physical button one isn’t working at all. It almost acts like it’s out of ranger but I have a z-wave plus bulb 3 feet from it and dimmer 5 feet from it.

Any way to get these working consistently?

Is it the locks, the DH, or ST itself??

ST + Hub communication. Start by rebooting your hub. The rest is upto ST

I’ve been using the YRD210-ZW (yale push botton lock) for about 2 months now, and I’m currently using Rboy’s device handler and apps, which are great.

A feature request is to hide tiles for features that aren’t supported. I don’t need a tile showing me that the alarm is unsupported.

I recommended you ask SmartThings support for this. There’s currently no way to have tiles show/hide programmatically, so it would require separate device handlers for each set of tile visibility, with lots of duplicate code, and much more work to maintain.

im also going to buy this lock this month if i can get it to work with ST.
as far as i know its only compatible with futurehome and vera?

did you try it yet?

It works with the standard DTH. But @RBoy is also working on implementing ID Lock to this handler with additional functionality


###Universal Enhanced Z-Wave Lock and Schlage Lock, Yale Lock, Kwikset Lock and IDLock Device Handler - Version 3.0.0

  • Added support for RFID card locks (e.g. IDLock 101, Yale firmware doesn’t current support reporting RFID over Z-Wave but future ready support provided)
  • Added support for IDLock models
  • Added additional support for 50+ models of Schlage, Yale and Kwikset across USA, UK and Europe

Note: IDLock currently has a firmware bug because of which it doesn’t report the correct configuration back to the hub, once IDLock fixes that it will start working properly.

Thanks @cscheiene for your support with the testing.

###Universal Enhanced Z-Wave Lock and Schlage Lock, Yale Lock, Kwikset Lock and IDLock Device Handler - Version 3.0.1

  • Improved compatibility with setting and reading configuration for some locks
  • All functionality for IDLocks working now

Forgive me of there’s an obvious answer to this. If there is I can’t find it!

I have a Yale Keyfree Lock

If I lock/unlock the door manually or using ST I have to refresh the app for it to update status. Is that expected?


Ignore that, I’ve just done a z-wave repair and it’s sorted it.
