Yale Smartphone Alarm System integration

Thanks Mark, it seems to have resolved itself after 6 hours. If it happens again I will ‘update token’.

it should, when getting the error, try to update the toke itself.
How often were you getting the messages?
how many messages did you get (should have been no more then 13)?

Hi Mark,

Thanks for creating this app it works well with smartthing - and all is good. however I use action tiles on a wall tablet. i’ve added a action tile to my panel to turn the alarm on or off . but the tile cant tell the status of the alarm. I’ve raised this with action tiles and they said there seems to be a problem with the DH. the reply i got was this :

If you look at this line in the code, you will notice that sendEvent commands are commented out. This device handler is not implemented correctly because it does not send any event data.

https://github.com/Mark-C-uk/SmartThingsPublic/blob/master/devicetypes/smartthings/yale-alarm-pannel.src/yale-alarm-pannel.groovy#L212

Since this is a community developed integration, I’m not able to provide farther assistance in debugging the code. Please contact the developers and let them know about the line numbers 212-213, they should be able to figure out what events are missing.

I don’t know a lot about code, would you have any ideas?

appreciate your help

What Yale alarm systems are people using with these please? I am planning my ST integrations ahead of actually getting the keys to my new home and I want to be able to use the alarm in SmartThings but there is a minefield of different Yale “smart” alarms.

If I bought a prebundled “Kit” what would be my best bet?

Thanks

Hi KH,

I have been using the Yale IA-320 Sync Smart Home Alarm for the last 2 years. It came in a 6 piece ‘Family Kit’. It has the following items:

1 x Smart hub

2 x PIR motion detector

1 x Keypad

1 x Door/window contact

1 x External siren

1 x Installation manual and fixing pack

2 x Alarm stickers

I have since added another 3 pack PIR motion detector to the home.

It has been working really well with the DH (with the occasional error message with failing to get a read update from the Yale Smart Hub via Smartthings).

It nicely integrates with Smartthings, Hue, Google, Sharp Tools and Tasker.

There is also a Familt Kit Plus and Full Control Kit too, but mine has enough for my needs.

Good luck with your integrations.

Kind regards,

SD

Thanks for the info Sunny. I wasn’t sure if the DH/SmartApp was limited to only working with a particular system as I notice there is a Sync alarm, then a “Smart Home Alarm”

For me it’s just a shame that these manufacturers are using native communication networks and preventing ST from doing what it was originally intended to do - unify hubs!
