  • Toggle Status of Schlage Lock

    I see the status of my Schlage lock (469), i.e. locked or unlocked. I am trying to toggle the status from HSTouch. However, I only see the command lock and unlock but not toggle. How can I toggle the lock/unlock status of the lock?

    Ok, I was looking into this again. It seems the only way to do this is with a script. It can be done directly in HStouch with a single script statement. In ActionsWhenPressed or ActionsWhenReleased create an action "HomeSeer: Run a HomeSeer script with values from elements(s)". For Script enter the string below. ScriptProcedure will be automatically set to "Main". Just ignore that. Replace [Insert Reference ID] with the reference ID of the lock which you can find under the advanced tab of the device.

    hs.CAPIControlHandler(hs.CAPIGetSingleControl([Insert Reference ID], true, (hs.DeviceValue([Insert Reference ID again]) == 255) ? "Unlock" : "Lock", false, false));

    For more control you can write an actual script that goes into the script folder. For the parameter pass it the reference ID of the device.

    using System;

    public void Main(string id)
    {
    string LogID = "Lock Control"; //This will be displayed in the log file under column "Type/Error".
    int nLockStatus;
    int nLockRef;

    if ((nLockRef = Convert.ToInt32(id)) == 0)
    {
    hs.WriteLog(LogID, "Invalide input parameter " + id + "Please provide a single input parameter that is the device's reference ID which can be found under the Advanced tab of the device");
    return;
    }

    nLockStatus = hs.DeviceValue(nLockRef);
    if (nLockStatus == 255)
    {
    //Device was locked. Unlock it.
    hs.CAPIControlHandler(hs.CAPIGetSingleControl(nLockRef, true, "Unlock", false, false));
    }
    else if(nLockStatus == 0)
    {
    //Device was unlocked. Lock it.
    hs.CAPIControlHandler(hs.CAPIGetSingleControl(nLockRef, true, "Lock", false, false));
    //hs.CAPIControlHandler(hs.CAPIGetSingleControl(hs.GetDeviceRe fByName("Downstairs Entrance Door Lock"), True, "Lock", False, False))
    }
    else
    {
    //Unknown status. Just try to lock it.
    //Note for Schlage Camelot
    // 1 = Unlocked with timeout
    // 16 = Unlocked from inside handle
    // 17 = Unlocked from inside handle with timeout
    // 32 = Unlocked from outside handle
    // 33 = Unlocked from outside handle with timeout
    // 254 = Unknown status
    hs.CAPIControlHandler(hs.CAPIGetSingleControl(nLockRef, true, "Lock", false, false));
    }
    }

      Did you try adding 9000 to status. Thats what tells hstouch to add a toggle.

          Also...script does not work for me

          Really would like this feature for my Schlage locks...tried the script in HSTouch Designer and cannot get this to successfully toggle the locks either. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

            Create 3 events. See the images below.
            Then ins HSTouch designer add an image that shows the status of your lock.
            Add an Action When Released that runs the Event "Toggle" that calls the other 2 events.
            You can then click the lock image and the lock will toggle between Lock and Unlock.

              THANK YOU!!!

              Genius! This worked perfectly, cant thank you enough as this is just what I needed. Hope to be able to return the favor somewhere somehow. The abilities of HS3 are vast...but difficult to uncover so users like you are truly the ones that extol the value of this system!

              I am doing well on graphics and navigation, so if I can assist you in any way in this area, please let me know.

              Regards,
              John

                I struggled with this as well and posted a reply to an older thread https://forums.homeseer.com/showthre...13#post1325113

                While the aforementioned Events are an elegant solution, the conditional "Other Events are True" wasn't obvious to me, so I went with a vb script. Which was a great learning experience.

                ...
                1) create 3 manually triggered events (Script, Front Door Lock, Front Door Unlock)
                2) Lock and Unlock are simply setting node to lock or unlock
                3) Script has the following code
                This goes in the program files/homeseer/script folder
                Code:
                ''Lockscript.vb 
                Sub Main(parms as Object)     
                Dim devStatus = hs.DeviceValueByName("Vestibule Door Lock")     
                     Select Case devStatus     
                     Case 255         
                          hs.TriggerEvent("Front Door Unlock")         
                          hs.Speak("Unlocking the Front Door")     
                     Case 0         
                          hs.TriggerEvent("Front Door Lock")         
                          hs.Speak("Locking the Front Door")     
                     end Select 
                end Sub
                The HomeSeer documentation states DeviceValueByName requires Location & Name. This can be confusing because by location they mean Room. So in my case the Device: Door Lock is in the Room: Vestibule.

                Finally,
                4) Create a button in HSTouch Designer. I like to give it status tracking of the door lock. And Action when pressed is the Front Door Lock Script.

                  Scripting next

                  Thanks for the idea...I am (currently) intimidated by scripting, but hope to dive in soon as these can really open up new functionality!

                      FYI

                      Spud's EasyTrigger plugin has a toggle action built in, plus a veritable treasure trove of other features that greatly simplify complex event building and schedules.

                        This used to work but an update somewhere along the line has broken it. Here is an old link where Rich explains it: https://forums.homeseer.com/showthre...=165052&page=2

                          I have verified that this method works from a homeseer touch client. However clicking toggle on the web interface generates the arithmetic error.

                              Does anyone know, is this floor plan made using Sweethome 3D or something else?
