Hi Ken. The reason why an app can't give you that kind of information is
because the information is not given by the API. We intentionally
withhold that information because the only reason you might need it is if
you're trying to hack the door code system by brute force.
Since the door code system uses just a few digits of numbers, someone
might be tempted to wardial all the numbers from an API. So the only way
to know whether a code is successful or not is by seeing/hearing the door
buzz open for you.
Does that sound reasonable?
