Garage Door App

I just got done installed a NuTone NGD00Z ( and configured with my Smartthings V2 Hub. It was pretty simple to install and get working.

However the thing I can’t find / figure out is how to set it up to automatically close if the door is open for more then say 5 mins. There’s a blog about a SmarthThings Garage door app that has an alert if the door has been open for x amount of time but I can’t find it.

Am I missing something here? Any help would be great, as THIS is the reason I got all of this “stuff”

Well believe I figured it out. Had to load a personal SmartThings App Developer ( then find some of the code shared on Github. Once I loaded that I was able to make a few changes, save, publish then in the app under SmartThings App I saw the + My Apps.

Loaded and blamo! working as I wanted.

Was able to change the code so that after X minutes it would Text / Alert me then close my garage.

If you have the link to the SmartApp code you’re using from GitHub it might help others who find this thread if you could share the link.
