Meross msg100 garage door opener

Hello all

Ok I’m pretty excited with this device. The meross msg100 garage door opener, works perfectly with smartthings app. Added via brand - then “meross” and then - switches.

Also adds into Google assistant, one thing though you have to add it separately into both Google and smartthings. But hey it’s pretty good for £34

Glad to hear it works well and easily with SmartThings as I just recently purchased this. How easy/difficult was the install?

Honestly was so easy to setup and install. Only down fall is that automations in smartthings app do don’t allow you to open the door, only close. Seems odd

There is a HUGE problem with the Meross garage door’s SmartThings integrations. It does not work for more than two days in a row on SmartThings app.
I have to keep deleting the Meross service from SmartThings for the Meross app to be able provide door “open” and “closed” status.
This means recreating any automation using the door as trigger, input or output.
It is annoying (NOT sustainable = insanity) to do this every two to three days.
How long has it lasted you?
I bought the latest device on December 12 2019 and now I cannot return it.
I have been in touch with their customer support and I am not that sure if they take this SmartThings integration seriously.
Just the steps to add it are confusing and incomplete.
They don’t really have an icon in the SmartThings app to show the garage door as an option.
It is hack via one of those sockets or switch icons.
After that you have to go back to home screen and hope it is added.
Otherwise you will go in circles once you see those two switch and socket icons.

I just bought 2 msg100 devices. I am not even being able to add them to my smartthings.
@NickSpender, how did you manage to add?

I used the new smarrtthings app -> add device -> searched for meross -> selected outlet -> selected Meross (Devices available in other countries) -> Selected location and room -> Step One (Meross Authorization) -> Next -> Step 2 (End of Configuration) -> Done -> In your Home, meross would like to: Install your device profiles dropdown. But there is nothing in the drop down. Pressed Allow -> Its back in the meross outlet. If I go to check for the device, its not there.

If I’m honest I have exactly the same issue as @ad_me The meross app is ok and works pretty well and is stable. Works with Google assistant too. But with the smart things app meross is useless

After you pass the first authentication. Just keep going next --> next -->
Then when they’re is no more option. Just go back to the home screen and you will see the garage door there in the smartthings device icons.
Your will never get any feedback that it has been added successfully.
Really terrible integration.

@add_me Same issue here. I had been using it via IFTTT with virtual Smartthings switches and everything was working great with Smrtthings, then I decided to simplify things and just use the native Meross device, but like you in only works for a few days then stops. I’m going to go back to using it through IFTTT again as that is stable.

I have exactly the same issue that Manu_George is having. The first time I tried to add this it took no problem. However, it then started showing the door as open when it was closed. I decided to delete and re-add. I reset the Meross Garage Door Opener to factory and tried to add it, but ST wouldn’t just keep looping as Manu described. Anyone figure this out? I have written to both ST and Meross. It got escalated with the ST customer service, but haven’t heard back from Meross yet.

Josh, can you please outline the IFTTT applet you are using to control your Meross MSG100 garage door opener.

I created a Virtual Switch in Smartthings, then in IFTTT I created 4 applets

The first two update the switch status if the door is opened manually (outside of Smartthings)

If open garage door, then Switch on Garage Door Virtual Switch

If close garage door, then Switch off Garage Door Virtual Switch

The next two allow Smartthings to open/close the door

If Garage Door Virtual Switch switched on, then open garage

If Garage Door Virtual Switch switched off, then close_garage

Seems to work well for me

I will try this. Meross should be sued for their misleading claim of Smartthings garage door native integration :frowning:
They don’t give a crap about Smartthings. They only care about Google Home integration. It is relatively stable even though the asking for PIN thing is no longer really working with Google Assistant to open the garage door.

Hi,

@Josh_Schadel, I cannot find the meross garage sensor device on IFTTT.
How were your able to do it?
I connected to meross but nothing shows in the selection menu.
See attached image.

Never mind @Josh_Schadel, I was able to add the applets as you suggested via virtual switches and IFTTT. So far so good.
It looks like I will be able to finally use voice as well via Google Assistant.
Thanks!

Hi, i try to configure SCENE in smartthings but the settings only allow to close the door. Any suggestions ?
