Garage thinks it's opening/closing


#1

My garage has been open all day. But, my Garadget thinks it’s opening/closing. This has happened ~15 times in the past two hours. Nothing is blocking the sensor. Why would this be happening? It’s never done this before today and it’s been installed for over a month.

Clearly there’s an issue with the sensor reading.
Please check the reflection rate in relation to the current threshold setting.

  • If you get false “closed” status when door is in fact open then something may be reflecting the laser back when it shouldn’t (increase the threshold).
  • If you get false “opening/open” when door is in fact closed then not enough reflection is sent back. Make sure that the alignment is correct, nothing blocks the beam and there isn’t too much ambient light. Lowering the threshold will help in some cases.
