Nuki Opener

Summary

Quick summary what this request is about.

I hear my original buzzer, and a notification via my mobile, but wouldn’t it be nice that all of my Google Home hubs and speakers made a sound that someone is at the door of the apartmenr?

Doorbell via google speakers, hubs makes it easier to hear that someone is at the door. Old buzzer is muffled and sometimes can’t be heard when all doors are closed.

I would have expected that this feature was already available, but it isn’t. Via ifttt, there is an option to let your hue blink when someone presses the door bell. So I would guess this should work for Google Home as well.

I’m working a lot with smarthome APIs that is not an easy task, since that special API for a doorbell is not public yet. So as long Nuki has not a good contact at the Google side, that cannot be implemented

@Stephan Google Assistant smart home notifications just became available and make this feature possible: Notifications for smart home Actions  |  Actions on Google Smart Home

For the Opener it probably makes most sense to use the “ObjectDetection” trait for notifications such as “Someone is at the front door.”: Actions on Google Smart Home  |  Google Developers

Making use of the new follow-up notifications for LockUnlock (“The front door has been locked” or “The front door is jammed”) and OpenClose (“The front door has opened” or “The front door couldn’t be opened”) would also be nice.

EDIT: Duplicate feature request: Bell Signal to Alexa / Google Home or IFTTT
