RBoy Apps is now an official partner of Monoprice

This Device Handler is for the Monoprice Garage Door Sensor (11987).

This sensor is designed to detect angular changes, such as would occur when a garage door is opened. It also has terminal to connect an external wired sensor (N/C or N/O). It has a tamper-proof switch, which will trigger a Z-Wave signal when the cover is removed.

This device handler supports the Z-Wave and Z-Wave Plus devices. Support has also been added for v1 and v2 hub fingerprinting for easy identification. Ideally install the Device Handler BEFORE pairing the device for easy setup.

The device can be bought directly from Monoprice here for about $18 - $23 (depending on the sale)

We work with Monoprice create a special deals just for the SmartThings community from time to time, keep watching our facebook page for updates.

This device handler supports the following features:

  1. Report the garage door state
  2. Report the battery level
  3. Ability to disable:
    • Internal sensor
    • External Sensor
  4. Configure the use of Normally Closed (N/C) or Normally Open (N/O) external wired sensor
  5. Support for v1 and v2 hub fingerprinting for easy identification
  6. Ability to request a manual update for the sensors and configuration (this is a delayed update at the next wake up)
  7. Easy to use configuration page with detailed explanations for all the parameters
  8. Reporting device tampering to SmartThings (as a tamper device capability)

Ideally install the Device Handler BEFORE pairing the device for easy setup.

NOTE:

  • The device is mounted on the garage door with the LED at the bottom of the sensor (see above picture). If mounted upside down it may not function properly
  • To request the manual update, please press the “Request Update” button, however this is a DELAYED update. The motion sensor is mostly in sleep mode to preserve battery. The next time it wakes up, if the user had requested a manual update, it will fetch the latest battery state.
  • To force an immediate battery update, press the “Request Update” button and then open the device cover for 1 second and then close it.
  • The internal sensor and external sensor operate simultaneously. If you want to use only one sensor, you can disable the other sensor in the device settings page (gear box on the top right corner)
  • By default the external sensor expects a N/C (Normally Closed) sensor. You can change this to a N/O (Normally Open) sensor in the device settings page (gear box on the top right corner)

Low Battery: If your battery below 20% consider replacing it. The device may stop sending updates if the battery falls below this level.

More features to added, if you have any suggestions or ideas please feel free to ask and we’ll try to add it.
