I couldn't find any existing topic about, so apologies if I'm duplicating...
I've been looking to add a keypad for arming / disarming HSM, and just bought a Ring gen2 keypad. I played around a bit setting up a virtual device, just to see the various options, etc., but I'm wondering about the details of the integration, the user experience, so to speak.
That's why I created a new topic -- I'm not looking to solve some specific integration issue.
I assume that once the device is discovered, it will be recognized by HSM as a security keypad. My virtual device did, so that seems easy.
Here are some questions I have:
In the PIN settings, what does 'code position mean? For what situations would I set more than one PIN?
The keypad and HSM both have configurable delays. How do they interact / interfere with each other?
If the wrong code is used, does HE get notified of that, or is that local to the keypad?
I use modes to trigger the alarm state -- can I use the keypad to manipulate the mode instead of the HSM status?
What other automations have folks done with a keypad like this?
Regarding the 'useless' emergency buttons -- I was imagining that I would use them for some specific non-security automations. Any thoughts on whether it would be possible to get those supported? (My impression from other topics suggested that they are not.)
