It's hard for me to tell whether the lock is in the locked or unlocked position just by looking at the tedee lock. In my installation the locked/unlocked positions are almost identical (telling by the position of the LED indicator).
To tell, ultimately I can manually try and rotate the tedee, or press the button (at the expense of the battery power for turning the lock once or twice), or try and open the door. Or check the smartphone or course.
- Enable setting up short blinks for locked and/or unlocked state, having the tedee LED indicator blink shortly, say, every 2-5 secs.
- As suggested elsewhere, use double-click (either double-click to lock and single-click to detect state, or vice versa)
I realise that this would draw some additional battery power, but I would be fine with that.
If anyone knows that this is already achievable through some home automation system, please let me know (perhaps there is an API that allows controlling the LED).
