  • How to control my telephone via Mobile/IoT? Kathir

    I have a telephone at home which is an electronic instrument connected via wire.

    It is not a cordless but a corded phone comes with a telephone wire.

    Is there a way to lock or unlock it via mobile or IoT? A telephone code can be used to lock the phone. However if I forget to do it then how to do it?

  • Yes you could add a relay that disconnect the telephone wires and control that with a IoT device or ex. a Arduino with a a GSM module like SIM800/900 and control the relay.

  • I have a Schlage Z-Wave deadbolt paired to my v2 Smartthings hub. Recently the lock has been blowing through batteries and it will often show the lock as unavailable even though the lock touchpad works. I also have noticed that the hub is pinging the lock very frequently as well. The first set of batteries lasted about 9 months but now I get about 2-3 months per set. What could be causing the increased battery use and instability and how can I fix the issue?

  • I want to build an Android Things device that can report its location via mobile network (4G LTE, LTE-M if possible, 3G & 2G). How can I plug such a mobile modem and connect it properly down to the Android Things OS? Which Android Things boards are supported? Is there a need for special drivers? BTW, I know Qualcomm announced a chipset for Android Things that supports LTE on 21st February, but nothing is available to the date of writing this post.

  • I have a Schlage Connect Z-Wave door lock. I can control it via my SmartThings App but I do not feel secure knowing that someone who hacked my account or my phone can easily gain access to my home. In addition, the lock/unlock button can be pressed accidentally w/o any confirmation dialog. My deadbolt can be flaky and once unlocked, it could be stuck and not be able to lock again. I am wondering if there is a way to limit the smart lock to allow only lock but not unlock?

  • I would like to future-proof my home automation architecture Today, I have a very decentralized setup: an MQTT broker (Mosquitto) WiFi switches: two on-the-wire ones (Sonoff Basic) and one wall... "vendor" lock-in: the automation mechanism is on Node-RED but could also be based on the capacities of Home Assistant or Domoticz, or others. Tomorrow, I would ideally keep all devices standalone, Wifi enabled and directly connected to the MQTT. This is probably not going to happen: I will have some sensors which will communicate via BLE or a 433 MHz signal, to some hub, which need to pass
