The sensor is mounted with the supplied sticky-backed velcro to the top panel of the wooden door. It is as “firmly attached” as the provided velcro could make it. Does the sensor require “sudden” motion to trigger? This is a soft start/stop opener, is there a chance the close action is too soft for it to register?
When I have looked at the MyQ the green LED is glowing solid. During the event I came home to an open garage after “closing” the door through ADC it was also glowing solid green. I hadn’t tried this before, but opened the IP of the MyQ in a web browser and got a status page…interestingly it shows that the MyQ has only been “powered” for <1 hour (photo attached). My power has not been disrupted for quite sometime, I know I rebooted the device a few days ago so it should have a longer uptime. Or does the device self-reboot if it loses WiFi?
I do not believe the broad connection is a problem as I work from home actively using the Internet 10+ hours every day, and then it used actively for most of the evening for other activities. Connectivity from the rest of the network to the MyQ seems ok, <2% packet loss average over an hour shouldn’t break TCP/IP communication. 2% is higher than I would have expected, but I can’t speak to how reliable that device is for responding to ICMP. -72db isn’t perfect, but should be more than adequate for even medium bandwidth needs.
I actually have a RE206 already attached (that i now use to validate what MyQ reports), however the default “wizard” notification rules seem to only look at the MyQ status…I guess I could delete them and use manually created rules instead…of course I did pay a good bit of $ for a device that was supposed to integrate this to my alarm for a reason, if the MyQ won’t work then I may as well look to return it and spend that $ elsewhere.
Not trying to be a jerk, just not happy with an expensive device that isn’t working. Coming home to a garage that was left open due to this security integration failure is not very comforting, I am glad we were only gone for many hours and not many days…and thankfully it doesn’t seem anyone decided to walk away with tools, bicycles, camping gear, the BBQ, or anything else that was for the taking.
