A few weeks ago I installed a GoControl Z-Wave V3 garage door opener. I think I was at the limit with the signal due to when the garage door is shut the panel would report a malfunction. I then installed a z-wave light switch which is right next to the garage so it will function as a range extender. It is running better but I am still having issues. It seems that when I have the garage open the panel will talk to it directly and then when I close it I get an error for a few hours until it starts using the range extender again.
Is there a way to tell the system to always use the extender to talk to the garage or is it something that it has to learn?
