    Bosma Aegis smart deadbolt - homeseer support?



    I'm getting a new exterior door that unfortunately would face the elements so I can't go with a smart lock that would be outside. However, I came across this smart deadbolt that only mounts on the inside of the door and works with existing deadbolts. Looks like it's only wifi and currently supports Alexa/Google/IFTTT. Does anyone know of a way to integrate it with Homeseer (without going through IFTTT)?

    3 of 4 of my Kwikset locks face the weather on one side. I can't see that being a problem or they would be pretty useless in many exterior door applications. If your application is a gate, well, I dunno.

      Thanks for your input ewkearns I do have a smart lock on my front door (Yale) but it's protected from the elements. I'm glad you are having a good experience with your smart locks exposed to the weather. I personally would prefer not to have my smart locks in direct sun all day long et all, so this seemed like an interesting alternative. Plus the smartness is inside only and limits tampering to the original deadbolt, so I can get one that would probably be more break-in resistant than most smart locks. But of course, that's only my opinion and taste.

        The outside portion of smart locks is just a keypad that connects through the door to the "smarts" circuitry on the inside of the door. I personally don't see an issue using a regular smart lock...
