I wanted to see if there is a way for me to change the Smart Home Monitor Status via IFTTT.
In short, I don’t really want to use Smart Home Monitor to arm/disarm my alarm. Rather, I am just trying to use it for a status dashboard. When my alarm arms, I have the ability to currently make an http call. I would like for that call to update the Smart Home Monitor status so that it can show away/stay/disarmed as appropriate.
Any thoughts on how I can pull this off?
Some people are doing it just through IFTTT, basically you have to have IFTTT turn on a virtual switch, have that switch run a routine, and have that routine change the SmartThings smart home monitor armed status. It’s clunky, but it works.
That said, as @anon36505037 mentioned, core provides a much more elegant solution for the same thing.
If anyone is still looking for a way to accomplish this I added a “simulated switch” to my devices via the IDE coupled with a smartApp I wrote to sync the switch and the SHM.
I think this is exactly what I am looking for! How do you install this?
