Ecolink Garage Door Sensor external contact usage


(Andy) #1

I got my hands on an Ecolink Garage sensor on the cheap but have no current use for a tilt sensor. Luckily it appears to have external contacts, I hooked up a Wired Door Window Sensor Magnetic Switch after pairing it, but it doesn’t appear to work, nothing in the app and nothing in the IDE. Has anyone used the external contacts before? Anything I need to do that I’m missing? Thanks in advance for your help!

@andy, try changing the device type in the IDE to a zwave door/window sensor so that open/close attributes are recognized.

Sorry I should have mentioned, it pair already as a wave door/window sensor, I did just try it as a few other types but no luck. I’m going to try and excluding and including it here shortly and see if that helps.
