This thread deals more with controlling the garage door like a lock once you already have the ability to control your garage door with Vera.

There are several other posts that break the process down and explain in detail.  This is a link to my recent post that should point you in the right direction to complete the first part your project.  http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php?topic=2757.msg51275#msg51275

Step 1: get Vera to command your garage door to open and/or close
Step 2: decide how you want to determine your garage door is open or closed (several products and methods to choose from)  You may have to engineer a personalized solution to work for your location.
Step 3: If you decide to use a window sensor, come back to this thread and configure this helpful plugin to open/close your garage door like you would lock/unlock a door lock.

Need a little guidance. I've installed an Evolve LFM-20 Z-Wave Relay and a Aeon Labs Door/Window sensor to my garage door. Both work fine independently.

But the relay keeps setting up an "Appliance_module" device on my dashboard with a new device #. Is this what you're supposed to use to control the garage door? If so, how do I modify the xml file to include that device #?

Also, how do you know the device number before you set it up on Vera? It seems like the "Include" step of the z-wave relay is missing here. What am I missing?

***EDIT*** It worked after setting the relay and sensor up as devices first on the z-wave network and Vera, recording their device #'s and then following Woodsby's directions. Sorry guys, but I'm new and needed to know a little more about the prep-work in fully installing and including the devices on the network. Also, you have to remember to shut off the Relay by pushing it's button after its included in the network or your hard-wired keypad won't work. Cheers Woodsby!

***EDIT # 2*** See attached image. The "device" that was created after adding the Relay to my z-wave network (step prior to following Woodsby's directions) landed on Dashboard in the Devices section. But I can't seem to mess with it. It doesn't want to be assigned a different room or change it's name. It's just sitting there like a stubborn child. Any ideas?

Hey guys I just set up my Ademco Vista Alarm System My next project is the garage doors. Ever since I had security cameras installed Electromagnetic interference has pretty much hobbled my HomeLinks from my Car. I had sears come out and they have no solution. Don't want to uninstall my cameras.

So this solution would work well. Just one question I havn't yet manipulated any LUUP files. Can someone please tell me exactly where do I add the id numbers for the sensor and relay into the Luup File. Can't figure that out. Lets say the ID number is 10sensor  and 11relay.

","urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:SecuritySensor1","Tripped",SensorDevNum) GetSensorStatus() end function CloseContacts() luup.call_action("urn:upnp-org:serviceId:SwitchPower1","SetTarget",{ newTargetValue="1" },ContactsDevNum) repeat local ContactStatus = luup.variable_get("urn:upnp-org:serviceId:SwitchPower1","Status",ContactsDevNum) ContactStatus =

You want the device id of each device e.g. contact sensor and relay. At the top of the I_GarageDoor.xml you will see the following lines:

SensorDevNum = 40
ContactsDevNum = 24

SensorDevNum is your relay and ContactsDevNum is your contact sensor.

p.s. I just ordered a DSC panel and will eventually replace my zwave contact switch with the alarm contact switch. Should be way more reliable and not each batteries.

Duh

Thats obvious enough. Guess I got confused with the instructions Saying

 "Plug these device numbers into lines 4 and 5 of the attached file (SensorDevNum and ContactsDevNum). "

This is actually Line 1

Will give it a try.

I'm looking forward to trying this out, but in reading your comment, I had a thought; would it be possible to power the door/window sensor from the safety sensors?  They run off voltage from the logic board.  It should be possible to regulate down to (1.5V? 3V?) to power the door sensor.

Hey Woodsby...got this all installed and working, and it's awesome. One question...does the "armed/disarmed" state of the door sensor matter? I have some other scenes based on tripping the sensor if it's armed (at night)...so I want to make sure this plugin will work when it's not (during the day).

Thanks!

I have finally got all the bits I need to try this out ....but I am having issues creating the device as explained in the first post..can anyone help me out? I have edited the imp file to reflect that my door sensor is device 6 and the contact closure relay is device 33 and followed the rest of the instructions..then the new device appears on my dashboard for a few seconds and then it seem to get deleted?
I am using a vera2 on UI4

I have the same issue...the device gets created then disappears.

I also want to confirm - the SensorDevNum = the LFM-20 and the ContactDevNum = the SM103?  Or is this backwards?

Using vera3/UI5

Thanks!!
