Not sure if this is the right forum but I have a mini project that I could use some advice on.
I’d like to create an alert for if a Jimmy Proof Lock to see if it’s locked or not. (this is what it is if you aren’t in the know: https://www.amazon.com/NU-SET-2125-3-Locking-Deadbolt-Cylinder/dp/B007A4SP8I).
I’ve done some forum research for other deadbolts and I think using the Ecolink Door/Window sensor would be optimal since you can wire up external inputs.
Here are some pix of the lock:
As you can see there is just barely enough room below the last cylinder to maybe put something like a pressure sensor. I was originally thinking about putting a micro lever switch but i think that would be too big. Once it’s locked and the cylinder is pushed down into that cavity it can touch something to complete the circuit and send a signal to the attached Ecolink – in theory.
Any advice would be great!
