  • Schlage Sense deadbolt

    Does anyone know if I could control the Schlage Sense deadbolt in homeseer via the Alexa integration?

    Here it shows how Alexa can control this deadbolt

    I don't believe it can be done directly, but there's a kludge solution that might work: a HS event with a speak action to a speaker client next to an alexa device. That way HS can give Alexa any command you can verbally give.

    The z-wave version of the lock would be a better solution for HS integration.

      You could also do this by going through IFTTT. Just have a trigger phrase in Alexa that fires off a Homeseer event.

      I purposely do not allow Alexa to unlock my locks, as I do not want someone trying to unlock the door by yelling at Alexa through a window.

      Oops, you want the opposite. If you have a speaker client, just have the event cause the client to say the magic Alexa phrase to a nearby Echo device. I do that to set and reset the Alexa glass break detection.

        There is another thread that talks about the phonetic text phrase you can use to trigger Alexa from a speaker. Ideally you do it programmatically direct to the Schlage lock, or Alexa for that matter, but it is possible.

          Thanks guys, I was hoping for a more programmatic way of controlling this lock. Since there is a wifi adapter, I was expecting to have some API over IP, will check this some more.

            If you have a SmartThings hub, the Alexa integration could be done via SmartThings. You can then bidirectionally integrate the lock into Homeseer via JSON calls between SmartThings API and Homeseer. I use this arrangement for a few devices that ST offers native integration for that Homeseer does not (i.e Ring doorbells).

            Eventually HS4 will include a SmartThings plugin that should handle the JSON calls behind the scenes. Only minor downside to this arrangement is the ST API is cloud-based.

            Hubitat is another possible alternative, and there is already a HS plugin available for the Hubitat hub.
