Hi all, my first post to the forum.
I’m trying to use iPhone presence to actuate open a garage door — if closed — upon my arrival. My setup contains:
- SmartThings hub
- Zooz ZEN16
- Ecolink tilt sensor
- My iPhone
I am able to successfully automate the door closed at a specified time. I can also use the virtual device in SmartThings (or Alexa) to open and close the door.
Trouble only begins when I set up the presence automation. “Trouble” means that any time I attempt to close the garage door — automated to a specified time, as was working before; or simply by telling the virtual switch to close it — the door will close and immediately the virtual switch tells it to open back up. Cannot keep it closed until I remove the presence automation.
Greatly appreciate any ideas! I do know how to provide logs, if that becomes needed.
