I am new to SmartThings. I just setup the hub with my door sensor and door lock (both Schlage). I did not use the Schlage built-in auto-lock function.
I created a routine called “Door - Lock It” and it only perform locking the door command. I also set the routine to auto execute when my door sensor is closed. The routine will lock my door when I trigger it manually via the smart app. For the auto locking when the sensor closed, it works in most cases when I go in / out of my home. However, if I unlock the door, open the door, and close it within like say 3 seconds, the auto-lock doesn’t work.
I looked at the messages from the smart app and it indicated that the door lock command was sent successfully. Any idea why the Schlage lock doesn’t execute the command? Here is the sequence of events as shown on the smart app. I named the door lock as “Front Door” and the sensor as “Door Sensor”, and the routine is named “Door - Lock It”
9:57:39 - Front Door was manually unlocked
9:57:44 - Door Sensor is open
9:57:47 - Door Sensor is closed
9:57:48 - Door - Lock It sent lock command to Front Door
As you see, the lock command was sent but the Schlage didn’t execute the lock command at all. I was notified by my other smart app that the door was still unlocked a minute later. This behavior is repeatable when I open and closed the door within a few seconds. Is this an issue with the Schlage lock that it wasn’t able to pick up the z-wave lock command when I unlocked it within a few seconds?
Thanks so much for your help. Sorry I don’t know which category / tags are appropriate for this topic.
