Switched to v2 Hub over the weekend. Wasn’t as painful as the majority of posts,but AM finding the gotchas here and there. And one, which is CRITICAL for me asa father of 2 toddlers, is the instant push notifications sent when the entry doors open or close. I have gen1 Multi Sensors on each of our 2 entry doors (front and side of house).
Where is the “Know When” feature for doors (or ANY object for that matter… mailbox, wine fridge, kitchen under counter cabinet, etc. etc. etc.)??? This is a huge safety and security piece!
It looks like there is this on locks:
Under the new Smart Home Monitor, there does not seem to be a disarmed/home functionality for notifying you on doors opening or closing. Am I missing it, or did S.T. make the huge miss here?
Need help fast please… I have the wife in my ear (rightfully so) as my 2 year old is a huge fan of opening doors right now.
The notify when smart app is still available in the marketplace.
Smart home monitor does not yet have any way of monitoring whether locks are locked/unlocked. Presumably that will be added in the future it’s a pretty glaring omission for a security app.
But if you go under custom notifications you should be able to set one up for a contact sensor. I’m using two, one on a linen closet door that has the cleaning supplies and one on the front gate.
I see @smart and I crossposted. If you need the exact steps on getting into setting up a custom notification, I just pulled screenshots for that yesterday for someone who wanted to set up notification off of a temperature sensor change. The Initial steps should be the same just in case you need those.
Updated: it fires regardless if armed or not. I have set notifications on all door contacts and they fire all day long in disarmed mode. (It works well with Smart Light, which I use to notify with lights)
I used to be able to use open/close monitor but in v2 this is not available. I liked the fact that it had an option to sound an alarm when open but immediately stop upon closing. Helpful for my doorbell hack so the sound was short.
Thanks in advance if anyone knows how to repeat this…

Getting the alarm triggered is not the challenge but getting it to stop, would IFTTT take care of that?
You could certainly just set up a second recipe which shuts the siren off when the door’s closed. That should do it. But then don’t use the repeat.
Just depends if you have other use cases that need decided to keep going.
The other option would be to look at some of the third-party rules engines and see if any of them can do it. I honestly just don’t know because I don’t have a siren I use with smartthings so I haven’t looked at those use cases.
