GoControl garage tilt sensors and cold weather?

I have GoControl z-wave controllers on my 2 garage doors. A couple days ago, the tilt sensors on both of them stopped working. So now my garage doors never realize that they've finished opening or closing. It's also been really cold the last few days. In the 20s F. Anyone else ever have an issue with them?

I've seen some issues where the ball gets stuck in the tilt switch inside the device sometimes if it gets really cold. You can pickup a pack of mercury switches for about 7 bucks including shipping and replace the little ball sensor.


This isn't the same part but I did it for both my GDZ tilt sensor and an Ecolink tilt sensor. The picture is the Ecolink.


Ooh, that’s an interesting idea!
