My current setup uses Yale smart lock YDD424 and in theory is perfect for my use case, open door with touch pad AND between 7pm to 6am THEN turn on light.
The problem is I find this setup is incrediably unreliable and works only at best 50% of the time. It’s not a zwave coverage issue as I have a aeotec smart switch right next to it and the switch works perfectly. Also other smart triggers like “lock door” work perfectly , just not the trigger for touch pad
I recently started experimenting with the neocool door sensor and it seems to work fine. So I got one more to put on my main door.
But heres the rub, it can only detect if a door is opened, so if I’m going out , it will turn on the light as well.
Anyway around this? Using a combination of smart door locking (which is reliable) and door sensor opening?
