This feature should not be just for Pro locks, it should be part of the bridge. I purchased the 3.0, not the 3.0 Pro, because I don’t want the Wi-Fi to be integrated. I believe it would deplete the battery at a faster rate due to the added processing overhead.
I like sustainability, but I’m not yet convinced to have rechargeable batteries for this kind of product.
Besides, the bridge is still required to connect to smart home systems.
The “non-Pro” products are not for free either, so they should also get these kinds of features.
this feature is really great! I integrated it with ease into my Homeassistant instance.
I have a few suggestions:
It would be handy to also publish the codes which are not correct. Why? I wanted to use the keypad to lock / unlock the door (obviously) but also to control the blinds and other locks.
I wanted to setup a code which is not managed by nuki because I don’t want to use it to unlock the doors. I want to use it to trigger a rule in HomeAssistant to close all locks and blinds.
Best solution would be to have different triggers with the back button. One press currently triggers the lock action of the connected nuki smart lock. Plausible use cases would be press and hold the back button for 3 seconds to do xyz or press the back button 3 times short to do xyz.
The MQTT integration is absolutely great! Thanks for the good work! If we now could get more detailed events so many new options are possible.
yes, that’s the right direction. That would a great addition as well.
Things like double / triple tap on the back button or holding the back button for 2 seconds would be great as well.
I think both additions come in handy. The MQTT integration was the major reason for me go with Nuki. I installed three Smart Lock Pro 3.0 and three Keypad 2.0 in our house. Most likely more to come.
Having codes which do not lock / unlock but just send a MQTT command would be ok. Having the option to assign different actions to the back button would be better.
If that does not work out, I can imagine adding a battery powered switch next to the keypad. Depending on the open / closed state of the lock the switch does open the blinds or close them. But I would very much prefer to use the keypad for that.
I tried it on a PRO with a bridge. I use the bridge to extend the battery life. It says
To activate MQTT your device needs to be added to your network. It wants the build in WIFI to be on.
Can I switch the built in network on, activate MQTT, and then switch it off again, or will this workaround not work?
MQTT is only available via an IP connection. i.e. it requires Wi-Fi.
If you use a bridge to save energy, the savings are achieved by turning Wi-Fi off (which is done automatically when pairing a bridge with the Smart Lock).
Both things combined mean, that you can not use a Smart Lock 3 Pro with a bridge and MQTT at the same time.
