I am looking for the following capability and not sure which garage door automation product to get:
- Can be zwave or wifi
- Capability to not allow remote opening of garage when alarm is armed
I already have a tilt sensor on my garage door so I know when it’s left open and status of open/closed.
However, I want to ensure that when my alarm is armed the garage door does not respond to remote opening via the standard Genie RF remote controls.
Do any of the automated garage door products interrupt that path? E.g., can they be set to a mode that I can trigger via zwave/vera lite when my alarm is armed?
When my alarm is armed I already get email notifications and I have a script that then triggers my PTZ cameras in a specific location as as well as contacts my vera lite box to ensure my front door is locked. I’d like to do a similar integration that puts the garage door in “lock” mode while the alarm is armed and then “unlock” the garage door when I disarm the alarm.
Any pointers? From the descriptions of most of the home automation garage door products it is unclear to me if they support the “lock” option I am looking for to disable remote opening and that the interface can either be associated to vera lite or an API I can query / post to directly.
