    Ecolink tilt sensor

    Anyone use ecolink tilt sensor (tilt-zwave2.5-eco) associate or link to gocontrol z wave garage door opener.

    #2
    I have a gocontrol garage door opener. I am migrating it from a SmartThings system to my new HomeSeer system. I’m struggling so far. I was able to add the zwave device (but it took resetting the gocontrol). Now it shows up as a Sigma Entry Controller with no features or buttons or anything. I am searching for help/clues.

      markc your issue is different from the OP. Try re-scanning. Or exclude and re-include possibly non-secure. Mine works perfectly with all the features including the "tilt-sensor" which is the door position. Note that the battery for that little thing needs to be changed more often come wintertime.

          racerfern, I tried many things with no luck. Rescanning, excluding and re-including (with and without security), resetting the gocontrol, etc etc. Nothing worked. Then as a last ditch try, I excluded the gocontrol, reset it 3 times, and then added it with security. It worked. I’m not sure why but as long as it keeps working, I’m good. Thanks for the advice.

            Unfortunately, it won't. Unless they fixed the failing LED issue, you'll get a year or so of normal use.
            Went through 2 of them before I switched to a Z-wave isolated contact to control my garage door.

              Dan-O Yeah, I've heard lots of horror stories. I've had mine for over three years without that issue. I did have it lose communication with the z-net and had to exclude and re-include twice. But both times it came back just fine. Didn't even have to move it from its mounted spot at the garage door.
              I assure you, I'm knocking on wood right now.
