I have a v2 smarthub with an integrated Yale Z-wave front door deadbolt keypad lock. The lock works well with my smartthings hub, and I can get an event log of when it was opened, closed, and what code was used. I also have the ability to lock and unlock the door from my devices(Things) list.
I want to set my security up so that if the front door deadbolt is unlocked, this triggers the “I’m Back” automation routine.
I’ve attempted to go into the settings of I’m Back and going to “Automatically Perform I"m Back When…” Locks seem to be the only device type that is missing from the events list. It’s pretty frustrating, and I’ve even tried IFTTT to work around the problem to no avail. Any ideas how to solve this?
Note I’ve tried this app.
But this doesn’t work correctly with my lock. It never recognizes the lock has been unlocked (and by which code), so it never sends the event to the Automation.
Rboy makes a door lock manager as well. I’ve been using it on my Schlage for this function (code executes a routine). There’s a fee for his smart app, although it’s a one-time fee that grants access to all his apps/DTH’s.
Personally I wouldn’t set to disarm on deadbolt movement. What if someone steals your keys or picks/forces the lock?
Another way I used to use is.
Create a virtual switch.
Have smart lighting turn that switch on when door is unlocked.
Have that switch to trigger your routine, or whatever.
Also I’m not sure if @RBoy lock manager handles your lock or makes available the option to use who unlocks the door as a trigger.
I have a Schlage and now use his software to do what I want when a specific person unlocks the door. I used to use this to change the mode when unlocked via keypad . I don’t remember if it can trigger a routine or not.
Thanks for all the help. It sounds as if a virtual switch would be the easiest option to get my designed behavior. Given that this is a temporarily implementation, I’m less inclined to spend the time learning CoRE. @TN_Oldman Is this a good way to go about the virtual switch, or do you have a pointer to better documentation?
I am having the exact same problem. I have tried every possible way to fix this or debug it short of completely removing the lock and hard resetting it (which I am about to do). It’s a Yale lock with z-wave 2.0 and the touchscreen keypad. What’s strange is that it does fire the Lock events, but never the Unlock events.
I’m confused. Any routine has an “Additional settings” section where you can “Automatically perform” it whenever, for example, a lock opens. Isn’t this the exact same thing you’re trying to do, already?
