Imperihome has a device I can add that can associate a bunch of sensors that will flash the icon when a sensor is tripped.  I would like to do this but for the three door locks that I have.  Any ideas on how to do this?  I would like it to tell me if any of the three doors are unlocked.

thanks

The door lock isn't a sensor category so it will not work. I certainly get your point and do agree with your method of use. This is also proven by the fact that in the Vera UI in My Modes, your door lock doesn't show up as a sensor to arm. You also can't use a door lock as the association trigger because it isn't a sensor.

Thanks, yes realized it won't work.  Although conceptually it makes sense :-)
