  • Z-Wave Locks - add multiple users to multiple locks?

    I am using events to add users to four identical locks (and remove / disable them); but it would be great if there's a script or plugin option to do this in a simple bulk model. Ideally, with a list / database of "users" versus one per slot in the lock?

    In case anyone comes back to this later... I ended up setting up two separate events for each user-space in the locks. So... 30 possible users, 60 possible scripts. First one removes the user from all locks; second one sets the lock to whatever code I've put in the script to use. Bit of a PITA; but can then easily be used in HSTouch to have a button for "disable user" and "enable user" from any tablet or phone.

      Would you mind sharing the scripts. I've recently migrated from SmartThings to HS for local control and z-wave reliability but I'm frustrated with the lack of most everything else and this was issue was in my top 5.

        I've had HS for years but also gave Vera a shot. Vera user pin code management is really good (not much else). From what I can see so far in HS3 the pin code management is not good at all. For users that add/delete pin codes frequently (short term vacation rental) it is really painful, unless I'm missing something.

        Any ideas, scripts or help would be welcomed.

        Thanks,

        Pat

          Another +1 coming from SmartThings for the exact same reasons and was surprised to see no good options for managing lock codes. I plan to dive into scripts and do this eventually after I'm finished getting everything else working, but that will probably be awhile at the pace I move.

            'Sparkman' has an excellent script for door locks, but if I recall correctly, the set user code capability that's available via events is not exposed in the scripting engine so I don't believe he has support in here.

            Here's his script in case you find it useful for its other features:

            Myself, I have one old Schlage BE369 that I have never been able to set a user code on, despite including, excluding, rescanning etc. My Kwikset lock has always behaved properly. One day I will replace the Schlage.

              It's now possible to do so using scripting calls. See https://forums.homeseer.com/forum/ho...42#post1258842 for the syntax.
