I have a sensor to detect if the front door is opened/active - which works well.
But am curious if there’s a way to report that an existing Yale 5 level deadlock is locked (i.e. someone hasn’t forgotten to lock up on leaving!)
Not interested in fitting a smart lock because a) it attracts attention and b) reports of location detection problems causing ST to unlock when no-one’s home…
I’m no ST expert, but there doesn’t seem an obvious way to do this.
One way to do this could be a pressure switch (microswitch?) inside the doorjamb; which detects on/off if the deadbolt is extended. However, there are lots of Zigbee light switches, dimmers etc. but nothing like “just a pressure switch”.
Perhaps get a cheap battery-powered switch (if there is one) to take apart and re-use?
Or perhaps a magnet on the deadbolt with a multi sensor nearby - that seems more fiddly though.
Any pointers? Or, seeing ST already reports if the door is active / opened, this isn’t worth the hacking effort ?
