A lot of people have asked this question, but I’ve never seen a definitive answer, and you can’t figure it out from the various support-based articles. At least I can’t.
So let’s say someone has the ADT model hub and they have signed up for ADT monitoring.
They also have the new app and they don’t want to use any custom code.
With other smartthings model hubs, When you use smart home monitor there is an option to notify with lights, so that specific lights that you pick will come on if there is a smart home monitor event.
What I want to know is if you use the ADT key fob remote to trigger an alarm on the ADT model hub, so that the siren inside that hub is going off, is there an option through the official features to also turn on specific lights?
So I don’t want an answer that involves the web core, or “ADT tools 2” Or the classic app.
Just the new app with the official features.
Also, I do know that you could use one of the ADT dual logo sensors to have the lights come on at the same time that it was triggering an alert to ADT by setting up individual custom automations for it, but that’s not the same thing as when I’m asking. Because I want to know if someone pushes the alarm button on the ADT panel or uses the ADT key fob remote, (Devices which are not normally exposed to the custom automation rule creator in the new app), if you could make the lights come on at the same time that the other alarm triggered ADT events were occurring, and if so, how?
(Also, if you know the answer for someone who hasn’t signed up for the paid service, that would be good too. )
