So I've had my HE for a few months now and all I've done was added sensors around the house to keep track of what's open/close. Most of them are the ST multipurpose senor, a ST plug and a Zooz motion sensor. I've also purchased a pair of Sonos One speakers to add Alexa into the mix. So far everything is working fine but now I want to automate my garage door. The things I want to accomplish are:
- Open/close the garage door via Alexa and with the HE dashboard.
- Alexa or a notification to alert me when the garage door is open more than x mintues and once it is closed the alert/notification stops.
- To stop Alexa/notification when the garage door is open more than x minutes because I purposely left it open doing yard work or what not.
I've been looking into the Sonoff switch to accomplish the open/close aspect but are there other better or cheaper devices to do this?
#2 and 3 are probably going to need to be done in RM but since I'm still new to HE I hope to get some help from the community with this
Any other recommendations for garage automation that you got going is greatly appreciated.
