I’ve got a couple of devices that I have some questions about. I reached out to each company’s respective support department (and even over social media) but in each case, well, let’s just say they haven’t been very supportive. Anyway, I’m hoping the community can give me some pointers.
The first device in question is a Linear garage door opener, GD00Z-1 (branded Iris). I’m using @Ron’s device type and everything is working well with it. My question, which support decided to not even acknowledge I asked, is why am I not seeing the opening/closing statuses when I open/close the garage door from the original remotes. It only seems to report the opening/closing statues when an open/close event is triggered from the z-wave controller. I did some debugging from the device type, and I never saw it ever show the opening/closing statuses come through when using the original remotes, but maybe I’m missing something? If anyone else has dug into this, and can confirm what I’m seeing, that would be helpful since apparently Linear doesn’t want to answer me/comment on my request to have this updated. I do realize that a potential option is to replace the tilt sensor with another one, but I was hoping to not have to do that if possible.
The second device I’m having an issue with is an EcoNet controls Z-Wave water shut off (EBV105). It’s an older variety black colored one that I purchased on eBay (it was unused). It paired fine with the hub and moves as expected. My problem is that it is unable to fully close the valve I put it on. I’m trying to install it on a 3/4" valve on a vertical installation. It gets about 99% closed, then starts struggling. I should note that it can open the valve just fine. It looks like I’m not the only one with this problem: https://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews/R5ET8HOZ3J6VW/ref=cm_cr_getr_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B010MG372E I theorized that it was an arm angle issue since I had bent the bracket slightly while trying to tighten it to the pipe, and I pulled everything off/straightened the bracket as best I could. Before I go to re-install, I wanted some confirmation that others have gotten this to work in a similar setup and that it’s not something like the Amazon review where the theory is the motor just can’t handle it.
Thanks in advance for any advice, pointers, tips, or answers anyone can provide.
