The issue is not the icon - in fact, I changed the icon to the garage door and it shows up correctly.  The problem I am having is with the verbiage in the controls.  When you edit the icon and activate the option to "show device controls" you are prompted with a menu (see attachment) when selecting the device.  The menu options are OFF or ON - not OPEN or CLOSE.  Hope the screenshot clarifies a little more.

Thanks

I am using the Garage Door Opener plug-in (http://apps.mios.com/plugin.php?id=2998) and the icon I use is a lock with the open/close and set PIN option.  Here is a screenshot.

Interesting - so, are you using a dry contact to close / open the garage door with a separate tilt or position sensor and then setting your contact to 3 / 5?  I am using the Linear GD00z-4 garage door opener with built in strobe.  It has it's own tilt sensor that is not visible to Vera, only the garage opener module.  I think the Garage Door plug-in requires a tilt sensor which I don't have.  Thanks for your explanation.

My relay is the Insteon http://www.insteon.com/garage-door-control-kit/. The kit came with a door sensor and it has worked with the plug-in for like 4 years.

VeraMate does use the labels used in the configuration for the device in most instances (a couple of exceptions), but if it's using the generic device of BinaryLight, then VeraMate doesn't allow you to override that text yet.   This is on the development list though, but no immediate plans to implement at this point.

If you can use the garage door opener plugin, that will be the best bet, and/or customize the icon.

Perhaps changing the category number may help: http://wiki.micasaverde.com/index.php/Luup_Device_Categories

The category and sub-category are already set to 3 and 5 respectively.  I think the problem lies in the fact that it shows as a Binary Light so that is going to translate to ON/OFF in VerMate

11.7 should have better support for this subcategory - let me know if it doesn't when it's out (hopefully within the week).

Thanks for the update - I upgraded my VeraMate to 11.7.2.1 but the garage door (Linear GD00z-4) device still shows ON/OFF.  Is there something else that I should do to make this OPEN/CLOSE?  Perhaps it is just not going to work with this device - even though the category and sub-category are set to 3 and 5 respectively.

Thanks

Upgraded to 11.8.2.1 this morning and still see ON/OFF for my GD000z-4 Linear Garage Door Module.  Though I didn't see anything in the release notes addressing this, I was hopeful.  Any ETA on when this might be fixed in the app?

Thanks
