I’m using a button to open and close my garage door from HA mobile.
But my wife is also using the physical button (remote control) of the garage door.
Consequence : The button does not sync with the current state of the door :
For instance :
Opening with HA : OK
Then my wife use its remote control to close the door.
This is what I get then :
- state closed but button still “on”
PS: i’m also dealing with the fact that if I want to stop the garage door during the closing, I can do it but need to pulse twice to close definitely the door due to this problem…
Thanks for the help!!!
Is there a reason you are using a toogle/boolean for “Overture/Fermeture” instead of a button or input button?
to be honest, I don’t know, it was working like this so kept it. Should I change it ? What do you think?
How is the boolean connected to the function of the door? An Automation? We’ll need the details to help you figure out a better approach, if there is one.
If you don’t have an automation, what connects the “Garage trigger” entity to the actual function of the door?
Sorry but I don’t following you. I have a zigbee garage door opener which give me 2 entities : sensor + switch. I just add the 2 of them in the card, that’s it
well probleme solved with automations, maybe not the quickest but works !
1 automation to control if the sensor state is open “on” then => call service / trigger ON the device
1 automation to control if the sensor state is open “off” then => call service / trigger OFF the device
