Hi - has anyone written a SmartApp for 2 conditions being met simultaneously to trigger an Action? ST Support says they don’t know of one and to ask here, if one can be adapted or someone is willing to write it.
Not knowing the coding language, it would be a fairly simple “If… and If… Then…” command I would think.
Scenario: I have 2 doors (a human door into the garage, and the garage overhead door) that if both are open constitutes a property emergency - the dog can get out onto a busy street (and will, and has…and would ideally involve an alarm of some kind - I have gotten in that much trouble already with the dog getting out! ))!
They both have open/close sensors and I already have the garage door send a push and text if the outer garage door is open longer than 2 minutes (long enough to put a car in.) The problem would be if someone else opens the human door into the garage - with the dog right there usually - without realizing fast enough the garage door is open - and out scoots the dog into the street! Or someone leaves the human door open (unloading groceries, for instance), unknown to anyone the sneaky dog is now in the garage, and then someone decides to open the garage door to check the mail.
Since I’m new to ST, but it has been easy to set up and works great!, there is also a critical timing element to this action/alert : If there is no way ST/SmartApp would be able to react /notify in critical seconds, then this may not work. So far it seems pretty darn fast! I’d appreciate experience about critical timing of notifications in these kinds of situations. Thanks
