Second Version of Smart Alarm Device /Type for a Status Dashboard

This app looks very interesting as I want to move away from SHM, because it is so unreliable.

Is there a step by step to get this working? I have created apps in the ide before, but just want to make sure I am doing everything correctly.

This is both an app and a device type. Post t us the closet

Just installed both (IOS Version) and have a couple questions. Can i make the notifier my dashboard? Can I control things (disarmed, armed stay, armed away) from the notifier or is it purely just to see what is happening or the status? Last, I have the main screen and the system is armed stay but it is not showing up with any light behind armed stay.

Alright, so I updated my notification options in Smart Alarm and when I open the notifier i get a brief green dot behind the green status but it doesn’t stay illuminated. I read you talking about it in earlier posts, just wasn’t sure if it was fixed.

make sure to use the ios version of the device type

how do you know where to keep up with updates on these apps? i searched and found numerous threads. turns out i had code installed that showed last modification of like 7/15. i had to reinstall just to get it to recognize additional sensors. you could select them in the configuration but when you looked at the app status up top it did not show them. very odd. even devices showed in ide to be included in app. anyway i reinstalled and until that issue it was all working fine. how can i keep tabs on updates?

thanks

Not sure what you mean. If you don’t install my version of smart alarm and this device type it will not work.

Thank you Larry. So far so good. It’d be nice if I could chime my keypads while the 30 second exit delay was happening.

I’m out of town skiing for a week. Do you have code that can do that. I

nice. have fun!

im currently using the Iris keypad (https://www.amazon.com/Iris-Smart-Home-Management-3405-L1/dp/B01GCKAFX8/ref=pd_lpo_421_tr_img_3?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=YPTHGJBSDYJ3G5H4TW98) which works really well. There are buttons for Off/On/Partial which using the 3400-X device handler lets me map those buttons to my routines which just changes the mode to home/away/stay and the Smart Home Monitor to disarmed/armed away/armed home.

I thought i saw somewhere in another thread a chime function for the keypad so i will try to find it. Thanks again for all your help.

apparently its code in smart alarm that does it.

(CentraLite Keypads)

Updates for SmartAlarm:

  • Chime support! (Add your keypads to the “Chime Devices” list in the “Notifications” page to get chimes to work)

heres the code for the version of smart alarm that has Chime code.

@Lgkahn Hello, I am using your version of Smart Alarm. I had a question, everytime I activate the alarm, my hue bulbs turn off, any way to stop that from happening?

it should only tturn off any lights that are set to go off to signal an alert… if you dont want this feature remove those lights from the settings.

No, I want the feature, The issue is if I am in my living room and watching TV and I active the alarm, the lights turn off. Just trying to stop that. I want them to turn on with color when there is an alarm. Any other suggestions?
