Virtual switch for Smart alarm, Rule Machine and SHM?


(Kavvy) #1

Im wanting to use virtual switches with Rule Machine to change the SHM dashboard.

Ive removed all my sensors from the security side of SHM and will just be using the dashboard for visual notification.

What Im think is using smart alarm like:
SA is used to alarm the house
Virtual switches are tied to the modes (away, home, disarm)
RM watches these virtual switches state
the rule changes the SHM dashboard state to whatever mode Im in (away, etc.).

Am I overthinking this or can RM watch the state of an app to change SHM state?
