Hi, just got my whole system up and running about aonth ago , switching from Smartthings. So far so good, and I really appreciate the help of everyone on here. I'm having problems with my Iris branded GD00Z-1 garage door opener. It always shows as an "unknown" status in the dashboard. I've tried and tried to "refresh" the door status in the Hubitat devices tab, but it never changes. It also shows the contact sensor as closed, which is accurate.
I've tried power cycling the opener, and pushing the little black link button on the opener.
It's super annoying, since I have an automation to disarm the house, unlock a door, open the garage and turn the garage lights on. Everything works great, just no opening of the door.
I really really don't want to delete the device and start over. I remember I used to have this issue occasionally with ST, but power cycling the device seemed to get it back in sync.
Just checked, it shows it as complete. It was working pretty reliably for almost a month, and it was great. Now it seems that it's out of sync with what it thinks the garage door's status actually is, and doesn't work.
Open/close garage door manually using garage door opener or button, see if status will update. If not, you need to remove controller from Hubitat and pair it back . I used to have issues with mine very often, until I place z-wave dimmer near by, that is working as a repeater now.
I vaguely remember back on Smartthings, there was a way to re-sync the contact sensor to the door other than manually opening the door with the wall button, but I can't find it anymore. The official pdf documents don't show anything either.
Figured it out, found an archived post on the Smartthings forum. No idea why this isn't in the official documentation I have with the opener.
Remove the tilt sensor, hold the link button on the opener for about 5 seconds or until it beeps. Hold the button on the back of the tilt sensor, and change orientation until the opener beeps in confirmation.
False alarm, it now just says "closed" for status, and doesn't change. I'll try a new battery in the tilt sensor, re-pair the sensor with the door and try again when I get time.
Ordered a new 2032 Energizer lithium battery, and will report back. I thought I replaced it recently, and the "battery life" in Hubitat for the sensor shows 100%, but I don't think that's accurate at all.
