Garage Door Opener(s) Integration.

(1/4) > >>

Wii505:
Back in the day Stanley (now merged with Black & Decker and DeWalt tools back in 2010) had some x10 Modules that would make integrating (a) Garage Door Opener(s) into a x10 System easier then it is with the PUM01 Universal Module. Personally, I think it would be cool to have a new take on the old Stanley Garage Door Status Transmitter and Garage Door Open Indicator (and yes that is what they the modules.) But what do you guy think about this idea? I would like to hear your feedback.

This still has X10 capabilities.

Brian H:
It may depend on the opener controls and opener mechanism.

Many of the latest openers send data and power. To the controller and opener mechanism on the wire pair between them.
You put a PUM01, PF284 or the 2450 I/OLinc across the the wire pair. To simulate a manual push button. It frequently resulted in the console power resetting and it clock display reset. So it may have to simulate the controllers data commands.

Ya, you do bring up a good point Brian H and to go along with it, I've seen a video with a guy that show that exact problem. Also dave w, this is what I was talking about https:// ebay.to /2lci7Uq

When my old LiftMaster garage door opener died.... I replaced it with a Chamberlain  myQ Garage door opener. It works GREAT. TOTALLY intergraded with all my home automation… either by the use of phone apps (my phones are the remotes) or through my Amazon-cloud setup.

I get great phone notices every time the door raises or lowers... and special notice if it is left open too long. It can even be set to close itself, of course. And operated from anywhere in the world. I even have an app that allows me to view the garage camera.


You can even add existing setups to myQ. https://www.chamberlain.com/smartphone-control-products/smartphone-connectivity/myq-smart-garage-hub
