I've bought the aforementioned product to control my sliding gate. I knew that it was created for sectional models, but I was hoping to have the open/close features at least, since the tilt sensor won't work in my case. Unfortunately, I found out that Gocontrol get crazy when the sensor position does not change. Its status become "unknown" in ST after doing open/close once.Tilting the sensor makes Gocontrol work again.
Wondering if there is any workaround for my situation. I don’t bother not having the gate status, just being able to open/close is fine. For the status I can use a ordinary sensor to get the same result.
I have read into making a custom garage door opener myself. Pretty simple. Just need a smart plug and power adapter. You then connect it to the open/close connection on gate just like a zwave garage door opener and there you go. This link should help. There are links in the comments that lead to others projects in the area.
Hi, thanks for the link. I’ll take a look. I hope there is a way to make Gocontrol “ignore” the tilt sensor, being able to be just a switch if on/off status.
Your recipe seems to work as well. I do have a smart outlet, but as I already purchased Gocontrol I must attempt other methods before giving it up.
