Enhanced Z-wave garage door opener code (for Linear GD00Z and variants)

Have you looked in the logs to see if the command is actually being sent to the door to close and the door is just ignoring it?

I’m not using the app myself so I don’t know how it works.

Just gave up on the app (idle garage door). Found a webcore piston and just modified it to fit my needs.

That’s what I’ve been using… I have a piston that turns on the garage lights if the garage door state changes, or if there’s motion in the garage, and turns them off after a while.

I think I have another one that sends a notification if the doors appear to remain open for a while, just as a reminder.

Anyone having an issue with the state of the door not updating? Mine does not seem to update at the frequency it should. It always knows the status if I go in and refresh it.

Either your sensor batteries are low or you have a signal issue from the opener to the hub. My bet is the battery if it was working and now isn’t.


agree… looks like same issues i had earlier. replacing the battery fixed the issues i had.

I will give that a try, but it’s just odd it will show the correct status whenever I hit refresh.

Still having issues after battery replacement. Any other thoughts? Works on refresh, it’s just refreshing the status itself.

I can confirm that the 2015 DH from Gary didn’t work to treat my GD00Z-4 Garage Door Opener as an on/off switch (i.e. using Google Assistant to use voice commands).

Using this DH from Ron did the trick. I can now use voice commands with Google Assistant by adding a Custom Routine to open and a Custom Routine to close. This is some next level stuff!

Thanks so much!!

I’m using the DH from Ron and it’s working great. I do have a few questions though. In the ST app I see 5 different options to control: Power, Contact Sensor, Door, Garage Door and Momentary.

I’m assuming that “Power” is there because the code has it acting as a switch. But does anyone know why there are “door” and “garage door” options?

From the first post in this thread:

I’ve modified the ST default “Z-Wave Garage Door Opener” to better work with the “doors & locks” module. As far as I know, this would only be useful for the linear GD00Z device (and variants including the Iris opener.) This will allow you to select your garage door device as both the “open/close sensor” and the “garage door opener relay.” At that point, from within the “doors & locks” module, you can use “open and close it remotely” (and perhaps the other sub-modules that open/close the door.)

All this does is to add the “relay switch” and “momentary” capabilities to the type, stubs on()/off(), and defines push() to either open or close the door (depending on it’s current state.) It’s not a perfect implementation, as the “doors & locks” module might show the door as being “stopped” when that’s an invalid state of the Z-wave door opener.

Nice job on this. Always hated the blue “on” color for Closed in the default handler. Green is a fine choice.

Green indicates custom DTH and blue indicates stock DTH.

Sorry to bring this back from the dead, but hopefully someone else here has had the same issues as me…

For the past 5 years, I could open/close the garage by saying “Open/Close Garage” and Google Home would execute the command. I’m not sure what changed, but for the past 3 weeks, the command is now “Turn On/Off Garage”. Has anyone ran into this issue?

I am using the Ridiculously Automated Garage Door app with the RG Linear GD00Z Garage Door Opener - v2 device handler.

I received a warning about the tilt sensor battery being low. However, after I replaced it, the new ST app displays 0% battery life.

Should the battery life be displayed correctly in the new ST app by the RG Linear GD00Z device handler?

I tried the garyd9 My z-wave garage door opener device handler from this thread but it ignores battery life.

Is there a different device handler I could use which displays the tilt sensor battery life?

Take a look at this one

Thanks for the link, but I’m afraid it’s not worth $39 to me to have the tilt sensor battery life displayed.

I read the discussion in RBoy’s thread where you added the tilt sensor battery life to your RG Linear GD00Z Garage Door Opener device handler. However, I installed both your original and v2 device handlers and neither seems to display the battery life in the new ST app. Is this a known problem?

Hi @Ron is it possible to move it to edge?

Sorry, I have no clue. I don’t know what edge is. I switched away from SmartThings to Home Assistant a long time ago and don’t follow SmartThings at all anymore.

Hi dear developers @Mariano_Colmenarejo
or @TAustin maybe someone know, how intergate “RG Linear GD00Z Garage Door Opener - V2” custom DHT from this group and convert to ST Edge?
