While I was still in bed (6:15 AM EST) I start getting notifications on my phone that the garage door has been left open. When I got up 30 minutes later, sure enough the door was wide open. Pressing on the garage door opener wall switch did nothing. It appeared as if there was no power at all to the opener.
I went inside and got my phone, fires up ST app and checked the state of my z-wave garage opener device (Evolve LFM-20). The app indicated it was in the “On” position. The “Recent” log indicated this switch was turned on at 6:15 AM. Likewise, the garage open/close sensor “Recent” log indicated the door opened at 6:15AM.
No one turned on this z-wave switch. Furthermore, this switch should never remain in the “On” position. When pressed it normally switches on for a few seconds while it starts up the garage opener. It then turns off immediately. If it stays on, as it did in this case, the door can no longer be operated with the wall switch.
Anyone ever had issues with the Evolve LFM-20 causing the door to open on its own. More importantly, is it possible to disable a switch such as this one via a smart app. I would like to disable the switch at night or when we are away.
