Does anyone has any experience with using the Verisure notifications by email, sms or push, to start Home flows? Maybe via IFTTT?
Some background for this question.
I used both Homey Verisure apps (Adam Noren and Skynet ICT) and it looks like both have the same issue. Devices do connect, including the alarm system. But the alarm system stops sharing information after a couple of days working properly. I have seen some posts about the fact that Verisure does not like polling status more frequent than once in 30 minutes => I have changed the frequency in the Adam Noren app to 30 minutes, but still no changes in alarm status detected.
I used the alarm setting to start flows when we go to bed (partially activated) or leave the house (activated), and with use of variables storing last status also when waking up (from partially activated to deactivated) or coming home (from fully activated to deactivated). If the 30 minutes polling would solve the issue of not receiving anything anymore, that would not be sufficient for waking up and coming home as I want flows to start immediately.
So I am looking for other solutions. And I hope the notification of Verisure can help out here.
I do know there are other solutions too with “presence” in Homey (sleeping, waking up, going away and coming home), but that will not always work in our situation. Even more, telling Google Home “Hey Google, tell Homey good night” is not my idea of home automation to be honest. And we do not want to add more switches or buttons or so in the house. The alarm status would be perfect to distinct between all, but then it should be working too which unfortunately is not the case right now.
With kind regards,
