I have installed Honeywell RE206 tilt sensors on both of my overhead garage doors, with geofence notifications to let me know if I forget to close the door when I leave home. Yesterday we got the notification that we forgot to close the door, but when we got home the door was closed, though the sensor was still registered as open.
- Could this be a range issue? That is, did the sensor send the “closed” signal and it didn’t make it to the panel?
- Or, could it be a sensor issue? It has been cold here - close to 0 degrees F - would these sensors have problems in the cold?
- Something else I’m not thinking of?
