Door Left Open Reminder - Configurable by Individual Contact


Thank you Sir!!! Works perfect. By the way, I am using this on Hubitat, not ST.

And now I have what I really want. Push removed and Sonos added in. So happy, thanks again.


Hey all - first to @bthrock THANK YOU SO MUCH for doing this work and posting it so us lay-people can do some fun stuff.

I have copied your code exactly, have only set it up for my devices. Everything seems to work, except I am getting no notifications. I read in other spots that the new ST app requires the messate to also store in messages; however neither is happening. I have also attempted to send an SMS to no avail.

Are there any guess from anybody about what noob thing I’m doing wrong here?

Thanks in advance!


Nothing stands out at first glance. I’d turn on logging, open a door or two, and observe the piston with Trace enabled to ensure that both pistons #1 and #2 are functioning as intended, with Piston #2 running up to and through the notification statement and the {alertMessage} variable being populated.

If you’re still having trouble I’ll take a closer look when I’m back at my desk.


Question for @rawright83

Are you using ST or Hubitat?


I really appreciate it…im not 100% sure what im looking at in the logger, but by paying attention to the timer loops, it appears to me that it is catching the door being open, counts down the time appropriately (1 minute for testing), loops back to recount when the sensor remains open, and resets piston A when the sensor is closed. To my lay-person eyes, it seems to be doing everything right, short of popping the notification…


I’m on ST.


Try adding another form of notification, such as SMS or E-mail (or both), if only to narrow down the issue a little. You could also delete and re-add the existing PUSH notification just in case there’s corruption in that line of the piston (very unlikely, but stranger things have happened).
