Garage door

Postby thewabit » Tue Aug 02, 2016 3:10 pm

Hi Wes,

I am all of a sudden having issues with my geo-fence. When it triggers, I turn the corner and my garage door has only moved up a couple of inches then stops. Have you seen this before?

Hi Matt,

It sounds like the IO Linc is getting multiple commands to open the door which would cause the door to stop. What does your ISY Program look like?

Mobilinc Return 1 - [ID 0029][Parent 0001]

If
$Matthew's_iPad_Home is 1

Then
Run Program 'Mobilinc Return 2' (If)

Else
- No Actions - (To add one, press 'Action')




Mobilinc Return 2 - [ID 002A][Parent 0001][Not Enabled]

If
Status 'Garage Relay-Sensor' is Off

Then
Set Scene 'Garage Door Relay' On

Else
- No Actions - (To add one, press 'Action')

Thanks Matt,

So long as that second program is not enabled so it doesn't run automatically without the geofence variable triggering it, I don't see anything obviously incorrect.

What happens when you manually trigger the variable from 1 to 0 and back to 1? If you look at your logs and you only see the program executing once, then I would look at the IO Linc and verify that the latch isn't set to continuous. Make sure that the latch is only latching for a few seconds or less.

Hi Wes,

It works fine when I manually change it in the ISY from 0 back to 1.

Can you confirm that the variable under "init" on the ISY should be 2? That is what mine is and don't remember setting it up like that.

Yes, the init should be a 2 since on startup the ISY doesn't remember what the value used to be so it's set to a 2 until MobiLinc/iOS can tell the ISY it's crossing a boundary again.

Wes,
If I use the following if statement with the and Status is on, whenever I close the garage door, it immediatly re-opens.

If
$ipphone7s is 1
And Status 'Garage door1-status' is on

Then
Set "Garage Door Control' Fast On
this setting makes door open immediately after closing.

If I remove the And Status in the If statement the garage door closes properly, staying closed.

Any ideas?

The ISY evaluates when items change status. So that IF statement will run when the relay status changes to ON (closed) which results in the door opening again.

What's the flow you trying to accomplish?

Thanks again Wes,
I am trying to use geofence to sense that I am in the geofence zone, and check to see if the garage door status is (On) Closed or (Off) Open. If the garage door status is Off\open and I am entering the geofence zone, then do nothing. if the Garage door status is on\closed, then open the door.

This is working, however when I manually, pressing the garage door opener button on the wall close the door, the If statement seems to trigger and re-opens the door.
