So for years now, I was using Patrick McKinnon’s garage door opener DTH - combining an LFM-20 Z-wave relay with a SmartThings Multi Sensor to build a custom garage door opener solution with a standard opener. Details on that SmartApp are here: [RELEASE] Ridiculously Simple Virtual Garage Door
But now that I’ve finally moved over to the new SmartThings App after finally being able to clean up all the other custom automations, devices, integrations, etc that I have - this is the last thing that still doesn’t work. The original author has abandoned it, which is fine - it’s super old. But are there any other, modern, working solutions out there?
This SmartApp just basically created a virtual garage door device by asking for an actuator (the LFM-20 configured as a momentary pushbutton) and a sensor that detected open/closed. The ST Multi has a specific garage door mode that detects axial configuration between vertical/horizontal that’s ideal for this scenario.
Honestly, I’m not sure if it would even be so hard to update this existing SmartApp to work properly - it seems pretty simplistic, but I don’t know what exactly about it is malfunctioning.
Anyone have any tips or leads on a replacement? Thanks in advance!
