I’m coming over from the soon to be discontinued IRIS system and am struggling with using ST to replace the security system in IRIS. I have both geofencing working to enable and disable SHM through the Classic app and I’ve also figured out how to use the unlock on the Schlage lock to disable the security system as well. These work pretty well.
What do I do though with someone who needs occasional access to the house, like a dog walker or someone else that I don’t want to give the app to? Also, if all cell phones leave the house but there are still others at home, like a baby sitter I don’t want to enable the alarm, this would preclude using geofencing.
I really liked using the keypads with Iris as it made everything so easy.
I have the Smartthings Hub IM6001-V3P01. I am using both apps (unfortunately) as only Classic allows Geofencing and automation of SHM yet the new app allows more button control as well as setup of the new hub. I have SHM on both but am only using it through Classic because of Geofencing. All scenes, devices and automations are through the new app where possible.
It’s really a cool system but I’d never give one to my dad to install…he is 86 though.
