I am not sure if this has ever happened to other people as well.
A couple month ago, I switched from Iris to SmartThings , and SmartThings took my Iris garage door controller without any problem ( model: GD-00Z-1). I know it runs on z-wave network. and I have a health z wave network at home ( the hub is at second floor right above the controller which is mounted at garage ceiling).
I set it to OPEN garage door on [I’m Back], close garage door on [Goodbye].
Here is the problem:
- When I park my car outside the garage, my phone triggers [I’m Back], the status went from AWAY to DISARMED, and lights got turned on, but garage door won’t open. If I pull up my iphone, and manually press the [I’m Back], I just “MIGHT” get it to work after 3 - 5 tries (I can hear the sharp beeping sound).
If I just press the Garage button/icon under things, it works 10 out 10 times. I don’t understand why it takes multiple tries for routines but one single try for icon press.
- When I leave my house, I usually manually press [Goodbye], same issue with [I’m Back], the garage doesn’t start closing, and Smartthings gives me this nasty message like “Home is armed but Garage is still open”.
Sometimes, it does start closing, but it takes several seconds for it to completely close. Before it closes, the same message pops up.
Now I kind of figure out a way to get around [Goodbye]. I will just use my car’s remote to close the garage, and let the presence sensor kick in and then auto perform [Goodbye]. I set my timeout to 2 mins.
I am wondering if someone else has any solution for problem 1 and 2, or perhaps share your own set up?
