So I got the MyQ garage door opener installed and all is working great. Question: Now can I create a rule to create an alert if door is left open, say a text message if garage door is left open for 10 minutes?
in “Doors & Lock”, you have the option to configure “Alert me if it’s left open of closed”
Thank you. I must be missing something…The MyQ shows up under things, am I needing to somehow create a Doors and Locks group and add that device?
- in your smartphone app, tap the “+”
- go to Alerts > Access & Entryways. Use the “Receive an alert if you have left your door open for longer than a specified time” option.
Got it, THANK YOU!!!
Has anybody figured this out with Hub 2.0 and the new app? Once I ported over to the new hub, I’ve lost the ability to create this rule - I used to have a rule notifying me when the garage door had been open for longer than 10 minutes. There is no Doors and Locks category in the Dashboard anymore and I haven’t been able to find how to recreate the functionality anywhere else in the app. Ideas?
I believe in the new app you’ll go to Smart Home Monitor, click the Gear icon top right, Custom, New Monitoring Rule, Open/Close Sensor, choose your MyQ then choose “Sensor opens” and “For how long”.
Thanks. I tried that, but it doesn’t seem to do anything. I implemented the rule exactly the way you described before posting here and had a garage door open for about 30 minutes (10 min check) and never got a notice. This change has been very frustrating for me - change is always a struggle, but ST seems to have exacerbated the problem more than usual.
I would like to add MyQ garage to my ST and then to schedule garage to close at night or get alert if garage is open at night for a certain amount of time.
Is that possible? If yes please show me what steps need to be done. Thank you
I am trying to do this, as well, but I don’t have a “+” until I go into rooms or things, and then the “+” doesn’t give me the option of “Alerts”, only “thing” or “room”. How do I add this alert?
Click on the “…” Next to the door icon
Click on “Alerts”
Click on “Add alert for this device…”
Put in a name
Turn on “Garage door is open”
Turn off “As soon as it happens”
“For longer than …” Shows up!
Set a time for how long
This wasn’t intuitive but I’m glad I found it!
