In-App Smart Lock Calibration
I'm reposting this idea (from someone else) that came from https://www.reddit.com/r/simplisafe that I thought was a great idea:
Hi, I have a somewhat unique situation and would love any thoughts. I am totally blind. For the most part, the SimpliSafe system is accessible to me because the mobile app, and to a slightly lesser degree the web app, are accessible when using screen reading software. My problem comes in with the keypad, more specifically the menus on the keypad which are difficult to navigate without being able to see them. For the most part this hasn't been much of a problem because I can control just about everything either via the mobile apps, or the web app, however there is an exception: the smart lock. I figured out a work-around to pair the lock with my base station without needing to rely on the keypad, but the thing I can't figure out is how I can force the lock to enter its calibration process. I know SimpliSafe's documentation references navigating the menus: devices > smart lock > recalibrate, but I'm wondering if there's another way to do this that wouldn't involve that menu structure? For example, maybe a numeric sequence that would start calibration, or some way to control it via one of the mobile or web apps?
FWIW, I think this would make life easier for everyone and not just the visually impaired. Specific codes to do things like calibrate would make life easier for everyone, yes?
