So for the past several years (pre-SmartThings), I’ve had a garage door monitoring system set up in my house. It’s a simple setup with a microswitch on each garage door that is depressed when the door is fully closed. I have them paralleled in normally closed so that when one door opens, it completes a circuit that connects to a repurposed phone charger and flashing LED that I have set up in the master bedroom. Thus when a garage door is open, a red LED flashes in my bedroom.
So I’ve recently put an Ecolink Open/Close sensor into the mix. With the power disconnected from the phone charger, the open/close sensor works as it should (with an inverted device type: Invert reported state of open/closed sensor?), but the LED doesn’t work. This was definitely expected, but the wife loves the flashing LED in the bedroom.
Help me get the WAF back up. Any ideas on how to make both the sensor and the LED work?
