Ring Keypad and Heimdall integration
Both the original Ring Keypad (V1) and the 2nd Generation Ring Keypad (V2) can easily be used with Heimdall. No need to create flows! *
The first thing to do would be to create one or more users in Heimdall. Open the Heimdall settings and select the Users tab to setup your users, more information can be found here.
When the Ring Keypad is added the integration with Heimdall needs no further configuration, everything is ready to go. There are some settings for you to change to your likings. To change those or check the current settings go into the Advanced Settings of the Ring Keypad. Here you will find the Integration settings
There is also a setting to enable or disable the Tamper Alarm. When you use the Ring Keypad with a constant power supply the Tamper Alarm will be activated when the power is lost. Reconnecting the power will deactivate the Tamper Alarm.
V1 and V2
So, How to set the Surveillance Mode? Just enter the PIN you’ve configured in Heimdall and press the desired Mode. Heimdall wil perform the same actions it would when using the Surveillance Mode Switch, so when an Arming Delay is configured it will be used.
The Ring Keypad will show an indicator counting down while an Arming Delay is active. When the Surveillance Mode is actually activated the led for that mode will briefly light up.
To check the current Surveillance Mode push the Enter key on the Ring Keypad and the led on the active Surveillance Mode will briefly light up.
The Ring Keypad checks its connection with Homey frequently, when it detects there is no connection the Connection Indicator/Network Light will light up Red (until the connection is back) The Battery Indicator will show the status of the battery and inform you when you will need to recharge it.
When during Heimdalls Pre-arming Check it discovers an open door or windows or a motion sensor that is activated the Pre-arming Check Indicator will light up, it’s just an indication, Arming will resume.
Network light - Only lights up during pairing or to indicate errors. If it’s red, there is a network communication failure.
Battery light - Indicates battery status. When off, there is plenty of battery power. Yellow means the battery is low, and Red means that the battery is very low. This light blinks green when charging.
Police/Panic button - Triggers the Emergency Key pressed flowcard with the tag value POLICE
Fire - Triggers the Emergency Key pressed flowcard with the tag value FIRE
Medical - Triggers the Emergency Key pressed flowcard with the tag value ALERT_MEDICAL
Motion sensor - When power save mode is off, this sensor is used to detect motion near the Keypad and light up when needed.
Disarmed Mode - Enter your access code and press to disarm Heimdall.
Home Mode - Enter your access code and press to change Heimdalls Surveillance Mode to Partially Armed
Away Mode - Enter your access code and press to change Heimdalls Surveillance Mode to Armed
Light Bar - Used to indicate remaining time during entry and exit delays.
Use the Emergency Key pressed flowcard to make a flow that will be triggered when the Police/Panic-, Fire- or Medical Button is pressed and held.
The tag on the flowcard will tell you what button is pressed, if you want to use specific actions per button use a condition card to determine what button was pressed, possible values are POLICE, FIRE or ALERT_MEDICAL
* The integration with Heimdall requires both apps to be installed from the App Store it will not work when running from the CLI due to missing API keys.
