Hi guys. Happy 2020!
Currently, I use danalock https://danalock.com/ and unlock my main door using zwave or danalock app.
The danalock app has a geolocation function where it attempts to unlock the door if you are within proximity via bluetooth, but its not great - works like maybe 2 out of every 10 times or so.
What this means is every time I reach home, I have to pull out my phone to unlock it via the app or via homey app (z-wave) which creates a lag time as we stand outside the door to unlock it.
I am trying to implement a cleaner solution where the door unlocks as soon as I am at the main door. This can be achieved via a card reader (how do I do that if not zwave?) or something else. I know there is smart presence, but it doesnt work well for me because I stay in an apartment and the geolocation is not great to begin with - so i prefer a physical solution. Could be a smart card reader, thumbprint reader etc. Any sort of implementations you have or ideas you can share are much appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
