hacking it up won’t report the open/closed status though, which the myq system was able to do. you’d still need a tilt sensor…honestly for me this would be the easy part - if it’s just a momentary switch then wiring two wires across it is a piece of cake…and my system was a myq retrofit so i am not even sure it needs that at all i think it will just work if i short the two wires.
however a way to report open/closed status? Maybe we could hack one of these things and wire it to a contact sensor? https://www.handymanhowto.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/DSC06841.jpg
maybe tap into the LED circuit and try to get it to trigger a contact sensor open/closed? too bad it only has a “close door” button, if it had open door, you could almost hack this thing to do everything…would be interesting to open one up and see what’s inside.
honestly, i dont use this integration enough to care right now, i’ll wait a few months to see if ST and MyQ fix their shit, if they don’t then maybe i’ll consider hacking something together with one of these. from what i read in the manual, our best bet would be using the closed LED circuit to trigger a relay and close a contact sensor. but it does blink during certain operations so it might create some weird blinking open/closed behavior while it’s opening or closing but otherwise i think it’d work mostly ok…good enough as a status indicator anyway, but i wouldn’t want to trigger events based on it, haha. status is all i care about though. ymmv…
