I have a gate I can open/close automatically, but I’m struggling to get the state (=is it open or closed?). The problem is: I tried a zwave and a zigbee door sensor, but since the gate is metal, it interferes with the magnets the sensor uses, so it’s not reliable.
Do you have an idea how to detect open/closed in another way? I personally thought about using my doorbell camera I will add in the future. But maybe there are other options, or different kind of door sensors.
