I’ve noticed that attempting to unlock manually immediately after auto-lock occurs (or maybe even right before it’s done locking the door), can result in the device saying it’s locked even though it’s clearly been manually unlocked.
So I see a status of ‘Locked’ on the app, and Google Assistant consistently reports that the lock is locked, but in reality, the lock is clearly unlocked and I can freely open and close the door.
I’ve been able to reproduce this consistently and since the device believes it is locked, it does not attempt to lock itself when I try to lock it again with Google Assistant or when the door is open and shut (ie. which should trigger auto-lock).
I can successfully unlock and lock the door using the app to revert it back to the correct status, but would rather not rely on a workaround like that.
This might be a corner case or might’ve been discussed before, but I thought I’d mention it anyway just in case.
