I struggled at first to make this work using my MimoLite and Ecolink Tilt sensor as it did not have the "acceleration" attribute. This combination worked well for years in my previous SmartThings setup using the Rboy Garage Door Manager app.
I fortunately had a SmartThings Multisensor V4 that, once I put a fresh battery in it, provided all the needed attributes that your app needed to function. Even the Dashboard tile works great!
Anyone have status sync issues when using both actual garage door openers and button controllers to open and close the garage door? The Dashboard tile and the virtual garage door attributes get out of sync sometimes and show the door status as opposite of what the actual garage door state is.
Are there any logs I can look at or upload here to help in the troubleshooting?
I just switched over from st yesterday. I spent all last night moving over my devices. I ran a similar smart app thru st that gave the option to turn off the switch after a second or two. I am using a st multi purpose sensor for the tilt sensor, and a st smart switch for the switch. I built my own relay using 12vdc to close the contacts on the garage opener. The switch is turned on sending 12vdc to the NO relay and closing it simulating a wall switch push. Using that app it would also turn off the switch to open back up that relay after two seconds. Is there a way to do the same thing using this app? Thanks for the help in advance.
I have this code installed and am using a smartthings outlet to turn on a 12 volt relay to close the contacts on the garage door opener simulating a push of the opener button. I have the app up and running, and it all seems to work ok except for one part. I can not figure out how to turn the outlet off after a few seconds automatically after turning it on. Since the outlet is staying on I have to manually go in and turn the outlet off before I can cycle the door again. Any idea how to fix this?
so to add to this. So everything works fine.. the problem I have, is once the door is open, and I start my motorcycles (and no they are not crazy loud belive it or not) it sets off the accell sensor. meaning when I back the bike out, sometimes I have to wait for it to let me close the garage.
so there is no way to get it to work with just a tilt sensor and nothing else?
Im just in the process of building a new garage door setup to replace my dead Aeotec GD controller.
This time I'm using a z-wave zConnect Controller with wired contacts for detecting open/closed and a Tilt sensor (YTD which one) for detecting door movement.
I set up a virtual garage door following your instructions but the one thing I'm puzzling over is the Dashboard tile for garage control - it doesnt seem to work. However, the status tile does.
Any chance you could update your virtual driver so the "garage control" tile works with it? I prefer to have a single tile for increased WAF.
From a safety standpoint the control tile is better than a switch tile because if you click on it by accident, it throws up an "are you sure" dialogue box and doesn't do anything until you confirm the requested action.
Back when I had a Vera Hub. I accidentally closed the garage door on my wife while scrolling through devices on my phone (she was about to close her SUV tailgate and it nearly crushed her hand against the door), as it lacked this feature. As you can imagine, I spent some time in the dog house for that incident.
Sorry I can't help, I tried 3 hubs and could never get a stable z-wave network with Hubitat, so I never managed to use this app myself. I moved on to a different platform (z-wave problems fixed instantly), so I think it's safe to say this code is unsupported.
