I currently have an old Merlin garage door motor (M230T) which is RF based with rolling codes so unfortunately I can't use my Broadlink RMPro to operate it.
Since I'm not in a position to upgrade the motor any time soon, I was thinking about a work around.
Apparently the motor I have can be operated through a switch with physical wiring. I.e. a doorbell type switch connected to the back panel of the motor.
Is there any zigbee device that anyone knows off that can perform a simple physical switch function without needing to be connected to the mains power?
Sorry for the confusion about not wanting it to be mains powered.
The reason I stated it, was because I was thinking along the lines of a lighting switch which passes on the mains power to the circuit.
If that were to happen, I assume it would blow out the control panel on the back of the motor
The device itself can certainly be mains powered, it just can't pass any voltage to the physical switch if that makes sense. The way I understood my garage door motor to work, was that the back control panel has several terminals which, if you close the loop by way of physical switch, would engage the motor to open or close the garage door.
Hope I'm making more sense now...
Thanks for the answers so far, I've had a quick scan and it certainly looks promising. @neonturbo I have no soldering skills whatsoever! Fortunately I don't need to hack into the remote control as I can hook up directly to the motor
I use Shelly 1's on my garage doors, they are WiFi not Z wave or Zigbee. but the are very simple to set up and they are natively supported in HE + there is a community driver that's adds some extra functionality.
Pretty simple when used as a Dry Contact Relay.
It's also possible to control it with a pushbutton wired from "S1" to "L", just be aware that it will need to be rated for the supply voltage (90VAC - 250VAC).
Probably easier and cheaper to put a Sonoff SNZB-01 on the wall and just use the Zigbee control.
My relay module is switching 0VDC into the specified terminals for external button.
Works in HE using the Generic Zigbee switch as recommended.
Now i need to figure out the best way to use the switch on my dashboard, For a single press to activate the relay on then off. The momentary tile does not seem to stay on long enough for the relay to activate, Has anyone else tried to set this up??
