I sometimes check if certain types of devices have appeared on the market with a Zigbee protocol that previously didn’t exist.
One of these devices is a Tuya Zigbee Garage Door Opener with model no. PJ-ZGD01. Namely, there are a lot of wifi or Zwave garage door openers on the market but recently I finally found a Zigbee one (linked below). Unfortunately, I haven’t figured out how to get it working with smartthings.
Smartthings hub recognizes this device and turns it into a thing without a proper device handler associated with it.
I have tried different handlers like:
Garage Door Set
NYCE Open/Closed Sensor
SAMI Open Shades
Samsung OCF Smart Plug
Simulated Garage Door Opener
SmartSense Garage Door Multi
SmartSense Garage Door Sensor Button
Zigbee Multi Switch
Zigbee Window Shade
I couldn’t get any of them to trigger the relay not to mention read the magnetic sensor. I have searched the internet but to no avail.
Any ideas on how to get this working without getting an extra hub and routing it through other proprietary apps?
Haven’t got it working with Smartthings. Bought a tuya Zigbee hub but it has an issue when I ask google assistant to close it triggers even tho it’s closed even tho google assistant knows the status of the device.
Same as you, ordered one up (late January) and it just arrived.
I pairs quickly with the Smartthings hub showing up as a “Thing”.
Useless after that because afterwards the hub will only report “Can’t connect”.
Thought I could work around that by using either ‘Smart Life’ or "Tuya Smart’ app they suggest.
I’ve used those apps before so I felt confident.
Those apps ONLY support the garage door openers that also have WiFi.
Appears those apps can not add ANY zigbee device using the Smartthings hub.
(That would have been good to know before I ordered up from china.)
The zigbee vendors mangle the standard trying to force you into a hub ‘brand’ lock in.
I gave up and bought one of the wifi versions (e.g. meross) for $23.
Connected to SmartThings quickly.
In fact, I have almost no knowledge in this area either.
Recently when a company in china released an IR zigbee controller, we thought to look for a programmer in the DEV community and do a small crowdfunding among us users to develop such a driver with support here on the forum (perhaps even from samsung itself) maybe this is the way…
I believe that everyone here understands that the success and expansion of the platform will mainly come from these solutions with easy access, bringing the DEV world to Smartthings
