Garage Door Open and Close Automatically - Version 02.00.05

  • < release version >

I am using this app only for the automatic closing functionality and would like to suggest an enhancement to the app. Currently, I will receive a notification that the garage door has been manually opened (with the notice stating it will be closed in XX minutes). If the garage door is manually closed before XX minutes, I do not receive any notice. It would be great if the app would notify of the closure if it occurs manually prior to the auto-close timer expiring.
