So I installed 2 GD00Z-1 (Lowes Iris) Garage Door controllers, and I have them working with SmartThings. I also created 2 Virtual Switches. 4 Routines (1 for open and 1 for close for each door), 2 “Switch Activates Home Phrase” SmartApp setups to tie the switch to the Routine.
I then can control each door individually through Alexa, and I created a garage door group within alexa, so I can control both together.
All this appears to be working, but I’m wondering if it’s the best setup. Or should I dive into the Noobs guide (which I’ve scanned briefly). What functionality am I really gaining by doing this? Is it worth the time involved?
Also, is there anyway to see the tilt sensor’s battery within SmartThings?
