Yale lock notifications


#1

Hi! new here with a question. Have a yale touchscreen deadbolt that is connected to smartthings. I'm looking for a way to get notifications when it is unlocked (and by user would be great). We are looking for a way to tell when the kids get home, they each have their own pin.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Welcome! You can't do this with the official features, but it's a particularly popular request, and there are several community members who have created custom code that can handle this very well.

If you haven't used custom code with SmartThings before, read the overview faq and it will explain how the process works. It's pretty straightforward, basically you just cut-and-paste someone else's code into your account. :sunglasses:

If that sounds like something you'd like to try, you can use the quick browse lists in the community – created wiki in order to find smartapps for specific use cases, in this case locks:

"Lock Code Manager" is a particularly popular free version.

We've put together a bunch of apps on popular request among other apps on the community, here one from our subscription

This is one with only notification/actions (the above app also takes care of programming codes):
