I had to take a hiatus from developing some HS110 code to work on this keypad. I’ve now got it working but it’s a troubling device. It is a keypad but it’s primary function seems to be to switch between home and away modes rather than do a specific lock / unlock.
I 100% have this working but I’m looking at where to add the functionality - to the device handler or the smart app. Ideally I wouldn’t like to require a smart app but programming this thing without one is a “pain” as device handlers do not support dynamic configuration parameters.
Does anyone know Is there such a capability type as a mode changer switch, or a presence detector with mode changing ability? Does anyone handle their security or away modes like this?
When I’m using this I’ll be switching on away mode and then would like a timeout before the mode change event is sent to smartapps - I can do this directly in the device handler and give some audible feedback on the pad. Does anyone think this should be done in the app instead of the handler?
Finally I toyed with the idea of enabling a “register” mode on the keypad by inputting a sequence defined in the device handler, thus doing away with the need for a smartapp but this is very clunky! Does anyone have any better ideas.
Any comments more than welcome.
