I recently am trying to make my Vera act more like an alarm system. Yes, I have read the “vera is a poor excuse for an alarm.” I get that it will not be perfect, and I shouldn’t rely on it, but would still like to know if the following is possible:
I have house modes with Home, Away, and Night configured. I have a front door contact sensor. I have a Centralite keypad. As of right now this all works great in that the keypad will change the mode from and to home, away, or night which then determines if the contact sensor is armed or disarmed. I am trying to add a dome alarm to the mix. What I would like to have happen is the following: House mode in “Away” or “Night” (door sensor is armed), if armed sensor trips, the “dome chime” beeps every 3-5 seconds for 30 seconds. If within that 30 seconds mode is not changed from “Away” or “Night” to home (aka sensor is disarmed), then the “dome alarm” is activated and continues to go off until mode is changed to “Home”. I can handle most scenes, but have a feeling this would require some LUUP code that is beyond me. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
