Email notification if garage overhead door is open for more than 5 minutes.


Recommended Posts


Or you could use the 'relay garage door' driver, freely available in Control4's online database.  It provides a nicer Experience Button interface as well.

It has an configurable 'open time' after which it will fire an event.

If you have multiple contacts (door fully open and door fully closed), it can also alert you if the door takes too long to open or close.

When garage door opens, start a Timer (agent) for 5 minutes. When timer expires, check if garage door is still open, if so, send email/push notification. 

Thanks

My programming block is not working.  Can you please take a look and advise where I am going wrong?

Also, my email notifications using Email to SMS is not working with Rogers.  The only email to SMS extension I can find for Rogers is xxxxxx@pcs.rogers.com --> does anyone have a solution for this?

Thanks

Do you pay for 4sight? If you don't the emails wont work. If you are paying why don't you just use the control 4 notifications? 

The way i have it at my place is when garage door opens - restart the timer

when the garage door closes- stop the timer

when the timer expires (which will only happen when the door is left open) - then send notification. 

I would also do a timer for the garage light. And have it reset when the man door to the garage opens and the garage door. Then when timer expires then turn off light.

Thanks.  I tried your programming suggestion and it did not work.  Does yours look like this (see attached).

With respect to the lighting it was done this way in case someone is working in the garage and the light is on.  This way if someone comes into the garage, the light does not turn off 10 minutes later.

Thanks for this.  Unfortunately I am already subscribed for this service and it still does not work.  It works when I send an email from my Gmail account (or any of my other email accounts), but does not work when it is being sent from Control4.  Any other suggestions? 

EDIT: after "subscribing" to SMS again, it is now working. THANKS RYANJACKSON

What programming do you have time expired?

Sorry Mitch I don't understand.  Why would my line "If Timer 'Garage Door Notification' expired" not be sufficient?

Ryan, where do you find the "open time" event?

because that on the garage door open.  It won't actually fire when the timer expires.  You need to send the push notification on timer expired.

Thanks Mitch.  Got it now.  Many thanks.
