I'm new to the forum and to home automation. I've got a HE, a bunch of Google devices and an Ecobee thermostat that I've been playing with, but I'd like to add my first real home automation setup. My plan is to use the Zooz Zen16 multirelay to automate my 2 garage doors. I'd also like to add some contact sensors to confirm the door position. I'll add a camera to the garage to make sure it's working properly and to avoid the scenario where the door goes down on top of the cars bumper over and over.
Here's my question. How do I signal the Zen16 to trigger the door? Is it as simple as sending it an action through the hub, or do I need some type of external switching device? The garage door wiring diagram on the product webpage seems to indicate i need some type of physical switch for each output of the relay. I thought the point of the relay being Z-Wave enabled was so it could be controlled directly.
I'll tag @agnes.zooz to see if she can help!!
Thanks in advance for any help.
