Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f7392b081e8> #<Tag:0x00007f7392bbb9c8>

My current garage control uses a Shelly 1 which is ideal for my situation. The Shelly is very compact and easily fits into the ceiling box where all the low voltage wires associated with my garage door come together.

My build was based on
and further inspired by

The Shelly 1 setup was easy and it natively offers everything I need.

Yes it was convenient that the builder used Cat 5 cable for all low voltage connections. I broke a wire for one connection and just switched to another pair. I have safety sensors at the bottom corners of the door and it was easy to add a door sensor on another pair.

I have plenty of D1 Mini devices, so I can add them to our cars. But even if I install them in our cars, I suspect we will still open the garage door before we get into our cars. Automation is nice, but old habits die hard.

Bugger about cable

Its nice to see the garage open as u drive down so that let u know ha is still up and running
