My house has two garage doors. There is a keypad which only opens one door, but closes both...or used to. I also have switches inside the garage which each close their own door.
The remotes we have in the car don't work that well anymore. I am not familiar with how any of this works, so please bear with me.
I would like to setup my garage doors to interface with my Hubitat, but I am not sure what I would need to replace or how to make anything compatible. I would also like to implement some sort of sensors on the garage doors so that I would be able to tell if the garage doors are open or shut. I have read that people use tilt sensors, but also some who use magnetic sensors. I know that the tilt sensors aren't that reliable unless the inside is replaced with mercury, or something along those lines.
Can anyone point me in the right direction please?
I'm looking for what I need to replace and/or add (outdoor keypad, manual switches in garage [which also turn on the light], remotes, sensors, etc.) Also estimated cost? I am not handy so, unless this is simple to setup, I would probably need to hire someone to install this.
Ideally, any products that are Z-Wave Plus compatible would be best. I have a Hubitat C-7. Its location is directly above the garage in another room, so I believe the signal would be fine.
