Is there a code you could upload to simply know the status of the door?

Thank you, This is great!

Not sure I understand the question but...

You just need a door/window sensor such as a HRDS1 for that which will show you the status of the door . You would need the sensor anyway to also make this plugin function correctly!

Is there anyway someone can upload pictures of their set-up for this? I really want to get this done but am a little nervous starting this project as I am not exactly sure how everything is hooked up and put together. I would really appreciate it if someone can do this.

Ok,let me state, this is somewhat of a tough question.

I have the "virtual" garage door lock working wth the code in post #1, works great.

Now, what I would like to do, is use the Wayne Dalton WHDA-12 Homelink-Zwave gateway to activate/deactivate the virtual lock.  In other words, instead of using my RF receiver on the door, have Vera take care of it.

I tried adding a scene, but the issue is, the scene has to be a "lock" or "unlock" scene, what I really want is a "toggle" scene.  So if the overhead door is open, close it, and if it is closed, open it.

I am already using Scene 1 for garage lights on, and Scene 2 for garage lights off, so I only have Scene 3 left on the WHDA-12 (off course if the toggling can be made to work, then the garage lights could also be 1 button as well :) )

Anyone have ideas on this?  If I can get it "working on the bench" (the components are not installed yet, just testing it right now), then I can remove the RF receiver I am using, program my "homelink" button 3 to the WHDA-12 Scene 3, , and just use the WD gateway.

This basically takes the combination of the door sensor device and the contact closure device on a garage door setup and consolidates them into a single device that behaves as a door lock - in the ui and iphone apps.  Locked means garage door is closed; unlocked means garage door is open.
Sensor is working...shows red or blue figure. Open door red figure but woodsby device says locked and doesn't change to unlocked. Closed door , sensor shows blue figure but woodsby plugin remains locked.
Any ideas?
Thanks

p.s. is it possible to rename the buttons open/closed? instead of locked/unlocked?

Did you edit the device number of your sensor before you uploaded it? Also make sure that you've used the device number rather than the Zwave node ID

Not easily, but you might be able to edit the .json file it uses to display it perhaps?! Even if this is possible then it would also affect other locks.

So here's another (probably silly) question: if I have more than one garage door, since the sensor and relay device numbers are hard-coded in the "I" file, do I support multiple instances by giving the I files slightly different names, setting the values appropriately, and then uploading both?

So long as you have different devices called out in the xml (assuming different sensors etc), and its named something different, then I think it will work OK.

The backup function is your friend here, in case anything breaks :)

I finally found a Mercury switch from an old thermostat that got my HM-DW001 to work reliably.  Configuring this went very smooth and it worked on the first try (no restart required).

Best of all it makes the process easier for the wife.  Now she doesn't have to look at the camera to figure out if she closed or opened the garage.  Oh, and I like it too.

Thank you very much for posting this plugin.
