HELP!!!!

1.
My door locks sync just fine (Kwikset / I think 909) but can't be controlled, when I send lock or unlock command nothing happens.
Syncs and gets no communication errors I can see.

2.
My motion sensors are not triggering 3 ecolink PIRZWAVE 2.5 says Indigo says it doesn't have a device definition, and I submitted one..
They do sync but never trigger, anything I can do on my end as a work around?

3.
Non of my email address will let me use Indigo claiming its a security risk and will not let me add it... Should I find a disposable email address, I wish indigo touch supported push notify :(
Also need this as I use Indigo as a security system and this how it's notifies me (5551234567@txt.att.net) so it's a email to text thing. Is there a plugin for notifying?

THANKS I just upgraded and moved back over to Indigo and these are all security related and are high priority to me.
Thanks

Re: HELP!!!!

There is a Google SMS plugin available.

Can you post some log messages?

Re: HELP!!!!

I’ve also been trying to troubleshoot a Kwikset lock. I read on some Z-wave forum that the lock won’t respond if the Z-wave signal makes too many “hops” across insecure devices. Maybe related to your problem

Re: HELP!!!!

While figuring these things out...
I set up a trigger to create an alarm... Basically a group of motion sensors that if tripped turn on siren and notify.
Using home remote to use GEO Fence... leave area and activate trigger EXCEPT home remote doesn't support triggers, just devices and actions.
Sooo how do I use home remote to trigger something that acts like an alarm?

Re: HELP!!!!

Create an action to enable/disable the trigger, or to set/unset/reset a variable “AlarmIsActive” then edit the trigger to add a condition “AlarmIsActive”.

Re the locks, have you included with encryption? Your locks are behaving as id expect if you haven’t done.

Re: HELP!!!!

Definitely use pushover for notifications.

Use home remote to turn a virtual device on/off per user. Then you can build a trigger if all presence devices are off to "arm" the alarm or get more complicated building in phone ping as additional check etc, ie using fingscan or unifi plugins.
Sure there are other ways as well

Re: HELP!!!!

I have an EcoLink motion sensor with firmware 2.00 that works fine in Indigo.

It shows as "Binary Sensor, (routing)"

There's also a plugin to send messages via iMessage/Messages on the Mac.

Re: HELP!!!!

Yes, when you sync (assuming you’re on Indigo v7) there’s two buttons - one with encryption and one without.

You can’t take the stick to the lock though.

Re: HELP!!!!

The Google SMS plugin is all but dead, as it's based on screen-scraping the web interface and Google changes it regularly.

If you need RELIABLE SMS notifications, use my Twilio plugin. viewforum.php?f=213

Twilio is not free, but it's really not very expensive either. $1/mo for the number and $.0075 per text sent/received. https://www.twilio.com/sms/pricing
