Aeotec Garage Controller issue

I have installed Aeotec Garage Controller. But I can’t get it to work properly. I have added it to my Homey Pro successfully, paired the tilt sensor and calibrated the unit. But - when I choose “Barrier operator CC” for “Command Send when state changed”, the sensor is working fine and showing correct status, even when I manually open/close with old remote. It also opens the door fine, but when closing it only closes the door about 10 cm and suddenly stops. If I choose “Hail CC” it closes fine, but then the sensor is not updating, so it shows the wrong status. What can I do?

Another issue (might be related) is that sometimes when i click close or open, nothing happens, and the status isn’t updating. So I can’t really trust the device, I never know if it does what I want it to, or if it gives me the correct status of the garage door.

Anyone with similar experience?

signal repeater?

Do you think it’s related to signal strength? When I e.g. update settings, it happens immidiately without any timeouts. Can of course try to move Homey out in the garage to confirn this

Homey will always send the same command to the device, no matter what you select in the advanced settings, what you choose in the advanced settings with that setting, is purely what the device itself sends back to Homey, that is why the status doesn’t update with Hail, as Homey doesn’t listen for those commands.

Hi

I had the similar issues and fought with the problem several hours. I also thought that there was a range issue, but I have zwave repeater at the same space so its not because of range. The outcome of this was following:

  1. The status change command should be “Barrier operator CC”. That way the door status is correct
  2. I noticed that the commands for the door control is flipped in some point. When I send the “Lock” command the garage door will open and “Unlock” command will close the door. Don’t ask why it is this way, haven’t got the energy to solve this yet, but the door operates correct this way.

Thanks for the reprise. I have done some testing. It’s not related to lack of signal, as it worked the same way with the Homey located in the garage.

With “Barrier operator CC” the tilt sensor is now showing correct status. I also use “1” for “Group 1” and “Group 2”. The challenge is that when I try to close the gate using Homey, it only moves about 1 sec then stops. An observation: if I change Group 1 and 2, to another value, the actually closes properly. But, then the tilt sensor doesn’t work… Hmm… Any ideas?

I can confirm this issue!
