I’ve had successes and failures using this lock with SmartThings. Currently it’s working somewhat well, but in limited fashion. So the story, interspersed with questions.
First question: when ST first discovers this lock, which device handler does it use?
I ask that because in order to get some increased functionality I tried a couple times to utilize another device handler… with less success. Currently mine is using the standard “Z wave lock” handler. But it works less well than it did at first, before I tried to change handlers.
Here here are the things I wish to accomplish.
- Lock immediately if the front door contact sensor is closed, and stay unlocked if the contact sensor is open.
This worked perfectly until I tried a different device handler, at which point it got stupid. It has not worked properly since, regardless of device handler. If I can just get back to that I’ll be happy.
- Have two access codes in the lock itself, and have other codes in software such that those codes become valid only under certain circumstances (example: a service comes to clean the house every other Thursday). So I want my code and my wife’s code to be in the lock, always available regardless of whether ST is running or not - and then have any/all other codes be stored in ST.
It was my attempt to put codes in software that led to the device handler change, which led to things not working.
Now that I’m playing with webcore, I see I can do actions based on which code# opens the lock. So I’d again like to try to expand its usage. Can anyone answer the first question - and can anyone provide hints on how to get where I want to be?
