Gocontrol garage opener and 4in1 sensor ...
« on: April 02, 2018, 12:31:10 am »
So recently got the gocontrol garage opener and was trying to add it to my list of security devices to monitor when armed. It appears as if this isnít a security device? I would like the siren to sound if the door is opened when armed.  Also noticed that my monoprice 4in1 multisensor is also unable to be used as a security device? Shouldnít the motion part be able to be used under the security section? Iím assuming other motion devices are able to be used as security devices. I only have 2 4in1 sensors and 1 is only added at the moment. Anyway curious on having these added as security devices? And or am I missing something here when trying to add them? Thanks

Good question. Seems logical as well. Does the Gocontrol work well?

So far. But I have only had it connected for a day hahaha. A lot of reviews via amanon say it donít last much longer than a year or right after the warranty expires. Wanted something for the garage bc the kids are in and out of it  durning the summer and would like it closed as much as possible bc I have a lot of tools and what not out there. Nortec / linear is the only z wave one out there sadly .Emailed Aeon labs about there garage controller they have in Europe but they said they couldnít release it here bc of patents and what not. Def think it should be part of the security device list bc itís an entrance into your home.

That definitely makes sense. I didn't realize they never released the Aeon Labs one in the US. That is frustrating that would be my device of choice, I trust their brand, SO long as it is something that works with Almond devices.... I think they had pushed a few of them out in the US then they stopped, I assumed at the time it was a supply or production issue, now I think it must've been a cease and desist for the patent issue. In some cases patents do their jobs, in others they simply hinder innovation, I don't know which it was in this case.
