I had event last night where my alarm went off - turned out one of my wired sensors decided to open for whatever reason! (I’ll have to investigate that separately)
Anyway - my question relates into the interaction of the STHM with SharpTools panel:
From half-asleep I was struggling to get it silenced - I disarmed via the panel, but the sirens continued (they are set for 3 mins in the STHM config) i.e. disarming the alarm did only that, did not stop the sirens from sounding (My Home Screen on all my Wall Tablets are the ones shown below)
So my first thought is, I should be able to set up a Rule in Sharptools, that flows essentially, when ‘disarmed’ then Turn Off siren(s) directly - yes? (there may be some IFTTT variables I need to include but the gist is to turn off sirens - if sounding - when the STHM is disarmed). This is probably the easiest way to go so that the SharpTools Rule operates in background when the STHM is disarmed
Within the STHM I could not see any setting that would do that by itself - I’m not sure what would have happened if I had dismissed the intrusion alert in the STHM after it was first triggered (my response on trigger is to turn on all the lights then delay 30 secs THEN turn on sirens) - so essentially I have 30 seconds to disarm it before the noise-makers kick off! (Trying to figure out how to silence the alarms from SmartThings while my head was scrambling with Sirens blaring was not productive!)
So my second question relating to within the STHM itself - without creating a SharpTools Rule to turn off the Sirens directly, what would the mechanism be to disarm it within the STHM whereby it would inhibit the siren responses?
But you can’t include the STHM panel directly into Sharptools, right? Just the Arm/Disarm functions?
Or Dismiss the Intrusion Alert via SharpTools either?
(I’d kinda like to keep the Intrusion Alert anyway, to see what tripped it but not sure if that would have inhibited the sirens if dismissed?)
(this SmartThings screen below was obviously the ‘old’ version of the App before they ‘improved’ (sic) it! )
