I have searched, but can’t seem to find the answers. I bought a MIMOLite to control my Liftmaster LA400 driveway gate, but it is about 350 ft from the house so it doesn’t reach and I have no ability to put in a repeater. The gate does have power, but no wires run from the house to the gate. I have found a long distance contact closure that should reach without a problem and gives me the ability to control the gate as well as give me a magnetic open/close sensor.
The MIMOLite/Contact Closure can “press” the Single Button Control input to operate the gate.
Currently, the gate opens with the push of a remote button and closes after 15 seconds with the timer that is on the control board. The only way to keep it open is to press the “party mode” button with the gate open. I was thinking if ST controlled it through the MIMOLite, I could turn the time off and have ST automatically close the gate after 1 min, and if I made some sort of Routine or Smart App, it would disable the auto close and stay open.
Is this possible? I am new to the whole programming thing, so if someone has already written something, it would be a great help.
