Hello everyone, I am not sure where to start with this. I have moved and my new garage door opener has built-in WiFi. I want to repurpose my Garadget to be used for car detection. I want to set this up so the laser points across the inside of the door like your garage door laser sensory does to see if there is something in the way of closing the door. This would tie into my homeassistant install.
The idea is the car would break the laser as it was driving into the garage and once the car is far enough into the garage the laser would hit the pad again completing the ‘circuit’ so you know the car is far enough into the garage to close the door. I would then have homeassistant turn a light on when the garadget goes from closed > open > closed.
What I have found is the laser takes about 15 seconds to go from open to close so that is too long of time. is there a way to make it instantaneous?
