Willing to build enhanced driver support for Yale zwave lock

When I ran Smartthings, I purchased a driver that would allow me to get more information from the lock even. This is valuable to me because I would like to be able to determine if the door was locked from the inside or outside, If the door was locked from the outside I can put the house in away mode. If the door is locked from the inside I don't want to set away mode. Since I can't buy the drivers for hubitat I guess I have to figure out how to do it myself. Is there a way to get the base zWave Lock driver that I can modify for my Yale Realliving lock?

Hubitat does not release their drivers. There are some example drivers in their Github, but I don't think lock is one of those.

There is a driver for the Yale Assured lock (should be similar) at:


It’s released under the Apache license, but you may want to talk to the author about using it as a base.


Cool - This is a great start. Thanks

Very interested in this development project. I have Yale Zwave locks on each external door and I miss the exposed features from rboy's groovy driver in smartthings.

I'm just seeing this, but it is possible to build logic using the existing driver to determine if the lock was locked from the inside or outside.

I do it in Node-RED, so it is extremely likely it can be done in Rule Machine. Basically if the lock is locked, and the descriptionText contains the word "button", then I know it was locked using the button from outside. OTOH, if the descriptionText contains the word "thumbturn", then I know it was locked using the thumb turn on the inside.

My lock is the keyless model.

Any update on this? Did anyone build a driver or does the generic lock driver have all the options?


It should pull all available attributes the lock has available..
