I’m new to Home Assistant and I’ve been looking through various documentation and threads but cannot figure out a way to properly send an email notification based on a Wyze door sensor. So far with everything I’ve tried, I get nothing, and when I try to set it up via the automation.yaml file, I always get errors, despite copying and pasting code that worked else where. Any help would be appreciated!
The first thing to do is to set up your email notifier and get that working.
Then, check in Developer tools -> States what the door sensor reports for open and closed (
binary_sensor entities will be
Then you’ll end up with an automation something like this
alias: "Email when the door opens" trigger: - platform: state entity_id: binary_sensor.YOUR_DOOR_SENSOR to: 'on' action: - service: notify.notify data: message: "Open sesame!"
Yeah this works just as I need it to! Thank you!
Now that I’ve gone about playing with it, have I configured this properly? I’m trying to make it so it’ll notify me about any activity either A.) between 6:25 pm and 8:00 am or B.) is a weekend.
alias: WyzeDoor1Notification description: This automation will send an email notification when the Wyze Door 1 Sensor is triggered anywhere between the times 6:25 pm and 8:00 am. trigger: - entity_id: binary_sensor.wyzesense_778cd426 from: 'off' platform: state to: 'on' condition: - after: '18:25' before: '8:00' weekday: - sat - sun condition: time action: - data: message: Door Sensor 1 was triggered service: notify.myemail
If you want or you have to specify that. Currently your time condition only applies at the weekend:
condition: - condition: or conditions: - condition: time after: '18:25' before: '8:00' - condition: time weekday: - sat - sun
or use the workday sensor:
condition: - condition: or conditions: - condition: time after: '18:25' before: '8:00' - condition: state entity_id: binary_sensor.workday state: 'off'
That does make sense, I’ll keep that in mind in the future. Thank you!
