My “Garadget - US (Type-A)” was rock stable for ~14 months / until ~6 weeks ago. I started getting false open messages overnight. First maybe one a night. Then several. The laser looked bang on but I bought a new pack of stickers just in case. Then realized the app gives you a reading. Mine hovers at 25% +/- 5%, threshold 10%, laser is bang on in the middle of the sticker. Signal strength -34dB.
Then late last night, while I was still awake, I got a false open and accidentally clicked “close”. Then real fast clicked “open”. The garadget melted down. It got stuck in a open/close loop and I couldn’t stop it. Had to unplug the garadget. Glad I was home.
How do you override/reset that melt down situation from within the app? If I was out of town and that melt down happened, that would have been very bad. I can see the motor burning out and my neighbors sending me concerning texts while it did that. That would suck.
What’s up with the false open messages? Why did they start suddenly? The lighting in the garage didn’t change. Is the laser deteriorating or was a firmware bug introduced?
