Im looking to automate my garage door openers (3 of). At present I have radio controls for each door, where a single button will open the door, and that same button will also close the garage door. On the physical motor/control units themselves, there are two buttons, one for up and one for down.
There is mains power available next to each unit.
Im looking for a relay that:
- Can be mains powered (I can tap off the supply to each unit),
- I can set as a momentary switch, and when activated it momentarily closes a circuit which is independent of the mains power.
I can then either:
- Connect to the buttons on each of the units so a momentary activation of the relay would mimick somebody momentarily pressing a button. This would require 6 relays (3 doors, one "u"p and one “down” button on each)
If it is possible to have two independently addressable relays in one unit, then I can use one unit per door control reducing the number of units required to 3.
A neater solution may be to have one relay simply do a momentary press of a remote control button. In which case I can solder the relevant wires into a remote control unit, and connect to relays. If two relays are available on one unit, then I could then get away with just two units for the three garage doors.
Does such a Z-wave relay exist that would help with this?
