Unfortunately I cannot order the Zipato keypad at the store you bought yours. It does not ship to the Netherlands. And because it probably is End Of Line I think it is better not to buy, one just in case I get problems in the next 2 years. I’m not sure w.r.t. warranty if they can fix it or ship a new one if it can’t be fixed.
That correct, I only use RFID keyfob, smartcards or stickers to disarm the alarm. You could use the 3 buttons to enter a pincode, or you could replace teh RFID reader below the screen for a numeriek keypad. Both is not possible.
I have talked to a Robbshop employee about that solution, but, using the Firbaro smart implant, it only can set the alarm and disarm the alarm when the code/tag is accepted
It does not share the code or RFID tag ID with Homey, so I cannot determine who disarmed the alarm.
Eventually I bought a (Cheap AliExpress) RFID keypad with a Fibaro smart implant, because at that moment there were no RFID keypads with code and smarthome integrations possibilities. With integration I mean that I wanted to know WHO switched off the alarm. By using the Fibaro smart implant I only know somebody with a RFiD tag or code has switched off the alarm. I do not get the code or RFID token who switched it off.
Also the code which can be used at the keypad is not what I expected. I thought, besides the RFID tag, I could use a 4 or 5-digit code, but for this keypad, the 4 digit user sequence needs to be entered followed by the 4 digit code. So in total 8 digits need to be entered. (00013518 0001 is user 1 3518 is the code) This is not user friendly.
Another issue is that I have no indication that shows if the alarm is switched on or off.
I am still looking for a better solution, so maybe indeed the Frient keypad is a good one. I looked at their website, but it is not yet shown.
Ah, I had looked at those too and was considering it, so thank you very much for the feedback.
It does seem odd that there isn’t yet a device that does what we need on either Zigbee or Z-wave, so I guess we’ll have to wait for the Frient integration
FYI, at the moment the best solution I have found (which is very reliable) is to use Better Presence app to detect when a known user enters the house (or enters the WiFi network) and I switch off the alarm then. I don’t use this for detecting absence and setting the alarm though.
The other option I tried is using an Aotec Wallmote as a pseudo number pad and then it’s a matter of coding flows to recognise a keypad sequence
I also looked in the possibility of switching on/off via Mobile Phone detection (WiFi connect on Unify access points) BUT My mother has an old-fashioned (non smart) phone. My Wife and also kids do not always take their phone when they go to the gym, and at night sometimes switch to airplane mode.
So mobile phone detection is not an option for me.
There was a keypad that could fit my needs: “BeNext Keypad RFID Reader Z-Wave Plus” but this is EOL and not for sale anymore sine quite some time.
