I’m using your enhanced z-wave garage door controller smartapp and trying to debug the cause of a false opening yesterday.
I have GD00Z opener, configured to open and close using iphone mobile presence via geofence, also configured to close after 10 minutes if no motion detected in garage. Geofence set to about 1km to avoid mobile presence problems.
Here is a screenshot of messages from SmartThings app:
6:51 Opened garage door with manual button.
Message from app “Garage door opened, closing garage door in 10 minutes.”
6:54 Closed garage door with manual button. Confirmed by camera inside garage.
No message from app when I closed garage door, while there was message when opened door.
Shouldn’t I have received message from your garage door opener device handler that door closed?
SmartThings seemed to believe door was still OPEN at this time.
Shouldn’t GD00Z tilt sensor (has new battery) have indicated door was closed???
All the problems seem to spring from garage door opener thinking it’s open when it’s actually closed.
6:57 From camera inside garage. I can see garage door opening, although message
from your app says “10 minutes over, closing garage door opener”.
Garage door opener history says “Door closing” even though door is OPENING.
7:00 Message “HarlaniPhoneXR left, Garage door opener already closed” while door is actually OPEN.
7:02 Camera confirms garage door is actually OPEN.
7:18 Message that “Garage door opener opened, closing garage door in 10 minutes”, when
garage door has been open since 6:57!!
Why does opener suddenly think it’s now open at 7:18???
Garage door was already OPEN. Garage door opener history says “Door Open”.
7:28 Message “10 minutes over, closing Garage door opener” “Garage door opener closed”
Garage door history confirms “Door Closed”
Any idea how this is possible???
I’m suspicious of the GD00Z tilt sensor. It doesn’t seem to be indicating the correct position
when I manually closed the garage door in this instance.
Why did app report manual opening, but not the manual closing?
When does tilt sensor update and how often?
How can the sensor get out of sync?
Is there a way to see the history for the tilt sensor?
Perhaps you could enhance your GD00Z device handler to log the tilt sensor position along with battery status???
I had false opening problems in the past with Ridiculously Automated Opener app and I was hoping that your rboys app would fix the occasional false opening. I’m happy that your app has a way to automatically close the door if it’s left open.
I would appreciate your help resolving this problem.
