I have searched with no success to find an answer to this issue. Please forgive me if it has already been addressed elsewhere in this huge forum.
I have a Samsung Multi Sensor ( GP-U999SJVLEAA). It worked great as a tilt sensor in the Classic App. I spoke to Samsung support about the issue I am having this morning, and they said that the value for the tilt feature of the sensor is not supported in the new app as a possible trigger in automations.
I have tried clearing the cache and data, along with removing and reinstalling the new app, and also removing and re-adding the sensor. I have an Android Galaxy s10 plus phone.
I found one place here which suggested to go into the sensor’s settings and change the setting to “Yes” for Use on garage door. I changed that setting, and still have no choice available when using this sensor in a automation to trigger based on the tilt sensor value.
All of the sensor readings for temperature, vibration, axis numbers change as expected. I was under the impression that the Contact sensor value would read either Open or Closed based on the tilt angle of the sensor after changing the setting as I did to use as a Garage door sensor, however, when the setting is set to “Yes”, then the Contact sensor value always reads “Open”.
So, if there is a setting to use this sensor as a Garage door sensor in the new app … how do I use this as a trigger in an automation?
Thanks for your constructive input!
