Hello - I was having trouble with my GoControl garage door giving me false open/close, so I added the Ecolink Tilt Sensor and moved my notifications/status to that. (This was about 9 months ago).
Today, the Ecolink is stuck on "Open" and I cannot get it to correct by opening/closing the garage door. I am using the Generic Z-Wave Contact Sensor driver and there is no "refresh" command. Battery is showing as 100%. HE hub is C-5, FW 184.108.40.206.
Any thoughts on how I can get this synced up again?
UPDATE: I went and physically knocked on the sensor and that appears to have corrected the status. Not sure if this is a permanent fix, but is there another suggested fix (or replacement)?
I don't think it's a signal issue - the hub is in the family room next to the garage. Also, when I went and tapped on the sensor, it registered as "closed", so in all likelihood, it's the "ball" getting stuck in the sensor. Also, this is the zwave plus version.
I'll warn you, unsoldering the switch is a little difficult as it is connected to a ground plane (lots of copper) with no thermal reliefs.
One might consider cutting the mechanical sensor leads right at the body and solder the mercury switch to those leads. If you think afterwards the mercury switch is not supported well enough then a little hot melt.
