I was extremely excited that SmartThings and Genie have partnered up to build native support for Genie garage doors by linking the Aladdin Connect service. The garage door appears in the SmartThings app and can be controlled, however I have yet to figure out how to utilize it as a sensor.
The default device type is ‘placeholder’, and I have gone so far as trying various device types including the below:
- Garage Door Set
- Simulated Garage Door Opener (seems to show the most relevant ‘Current States’ in IDE)
- SmartSense Garage Door Multi
- SmartSense Garage Door Sensor Button
However, none of the device types, seem to make the device appear in the SmartThings Home Monitor, so that I can utilize it as a Security sensor. Has anyone got this working?
