I’m using a contact sensor (Visonic MCT-340E) to monitor the status of a dumb deadbolt. I’d like to have it show up as a lock in ST, mostly so it comes up alongside my Kwikset 910 in SHM status. Is there a way to do this?
- I tried the Universal DT Translator but it seems to be set up to go in the opposite direction.
- I looked at modifying a DTH but I didn’t know what to use as a template.
- I created a virtual lock with type “Lock Capability” and tried to sync it using a webCoRE piston (my first), but all it does is send a lock/unlock command, the status is never set. Do I need another piston to act as the “guts” of the lock? Am I approaching this all the wrong way? I’m hoping this is simple enough to get an answer here instead of setting up a new account on the webCoRE forum.
