HHH - Family presence and absence triggers
Here is how I log my family members and auto arm the alarm when all leave home or disarm if some one comes home etc.
I think this is a good example of how many possibilities the Zipato system offers without the need of writing any code.
I do not believe that many of the other systems offer similar possibilities.
WHY? WHAT DOES THIS OFFER?
-With this setup we don’t actually need a keypad for the alarm. At least we normally don’t need to use it.
-Also the alarm always auto arm itself (unless we choose to disable the auto function)
-The alarm disarm automatically when we come home.
-We get a personal welcoming message from our friendly home. :)
-Me and my wife get notifications when the children comes home. (but offcorse NOT if we are also home)
This is nothing I recommend for you!
I was asked to share how I did this so this is the reason for sharing.
It started with a crazy idea and I wanted to see if I could do it, and now it works perfect for us.
Don’t spend hours and hours in front of your computer! Take breaks! Get some fresh air!
I am using a Zipabox 1 without a PROlicense, an IFTTT account and a TP-Link Wi-Fi router Archer C3150.
A virtualalarm and many virtual devices.
THIS GUIDE INCLUDES:
-VIRTUAL SENSORS. I use then to show who is home or not.
-VIRTUAL SWITCH. A simple switch to enable/disable the auto arm function.
-VIRTUAL METERS. I use these to log how long time we are not home.
-ABSENCE. As a second part of making sure the house is empty I detect absence.
-CONNECTIONS. How I connect with my Wi-Fi router and IFTTT.
-AUTOMATION. The rules.
The complete guide is attached as a PDF file.
