Smart Alarm Needs a leader

Since Geko has stopped development of Smart Alarm as Smart Home Monitor was supposed to be a replacement, but SHM has not been updated for ever and still has no delays or keyboard support. So if someone is willing and able please step up and update SA so it can finally push SHM off the boards as it is a waste of time. ST wants us to buy their premium services and alarm systems so these updates will never happen. If someone from ST wants to chime in with a time when SHM will be a real alarm feel free.

Agreed 100%. My alarm goes off EVERY DAY when we get home because the presence sensors don’t trigger quickly enough… So the second my wife opens the garage door, WEEEEEEE WOOOOOO BZZZZZZZZZZ and our phones start exploding with notifications. My wife is telling me to get rid of ST because of this… So ST - please PLEASE add a delay feature. Otherwise my wife may just start throwing my setup away.

I’m not looking to be a leader or attempt to create a replacement for Smart Alarm, but if you post the features you’re looking for, I might be able to work them into the security related SmartApp I’m writing for myself.

Second or triple that - need someone to update and add some features would be great! This is like the foundation and why most would invest in ST.

I can help too, if you guys need my help.

Thanks for the offer to help.
The things I think are essential are.

  1. Exit and entry delays
  2. Use of a keypad such as the IRIS Centralite
  3. Possible of siren beeping as I have now when entering and exiting to warn that alarm is armed or will be armed aftwer the delay.
  4. We also need a graphical display of alarm status that is in sync with modes… Such as Away, Armed Stay and Alarm off.

Those are the first things we need.

and a way to manually arm and disarm from the phone when it gets out of sync with ST Modes

I thought Smart Alarm already had entry/exit delays?

this is already built in to smart alarm today

I think some folks are doing this now but it makes sense to integrate it

would be great to have this integrated as well since we currently need to use CoRE to achieve this.

you might want to check out the smart app in this discussion, it lets you sync Smart Alarm status with SHM status. I use this and it works great, only issue is the multiple notifications but its no big deal when you got entry/exit delays working.

I am already using that version but when I arm with IRIS keypad the state isn’t correct all the time so I use another graphical app to show status. called “lgkapps : Smart Alarm Notification Device”

If you’re looking to simulate a beep by turning on and off the siren quickly, that won’t be possible because the commands can’t be sent quick enough from a SmartApp. You can do it from a DTH, but it works better with some devices than others.

Already have it working using rule Machine.

the moment when you realize you gave your address to the ST community :slight_smile:

Which siren and what DTH are you using?

Thanks, I just answered from my email. That is something I usually don’t do. I am not thinking right.

I am using the Aeon v5 siren and and “smartthings : Z-Wave Switch with Flash” device type for flash of switch and “krlaframboise : Aeon Labs Multifunction Siren” that gives me the number of beeps.

This is the switch DTH code:

That was my point. It’s possible to build the functionally into the DTH like I did with that one, but if it’s not built into the DTH, you can’t replicate the behavior from a SmartApp.

It’s always better to post a link to the page you got the code from, but if you’re going to paste code, make sure you select it afterwards and use the </> toolbar button to format it.

FYI: You posted a really old version of the Aeon Labs Multifunction Siren DTH so some of the features won’t work with the latest version of CoRE.

Yes of course but my point is that if it was all in SA it would make it a less complicated setup for those that want the alarm and don’t have the ability to install loads of device types and DTH’s. My system works as is but it requires three DTH and two or three Smart Apps, which would work much better in SA as one app. SA would just call to the proper DTH like for the flashing Z-Wave switch or the beeping Siren. But I wouldn’t need a separate front end and a DTH for the lock.

The Aeon Siren DTH already allows you to use the full beeping functionality including delayed alarm from SHM and Smart Alarm, but only because you can pass the custom commands as plain text.

There is no capability that supports the command “flash” so the only way to call it is to use a SmartApp like CoRE or Rule Machine because they support custom commands.

A Tone input could be added to the Alarm SmartApp and it could provide a variety of beeping options, but it would only work with DTHs that support the Tone capability because that’s the only capability with the “beep” command.

The 5 DTHs I’ve created support it, but most of the other DTHs I’ve looked at don’t so you wouldn’t be able to use that feature with them.
