    SonOff WiFi Basic GDO multisensor - button - temperature sensor mcsMQTT project

    This is an overview of the GDO SonOff WiFi basic project.

    Note: This project / endeavor involves soldering, hardware mods, updating firmware on a SonOff WiFi basic and use of HS3 mcsMQTT plugin

    Doing a quickie summary here as new Chamberlain MyQ GDO is using security 2.0 + which is different than older Liftmaster GDO.

    This Chamberlain GDO is an upgrade from the Liftmaster and Craftsman of old. Never connected or used the MyQ stuff. Personally I liked the Liftmaster and Craftman GDO's the best. Two weeks ago the Logic board went out on it. The GDO is over a year old and the logic board is only covered for 1 year. No local dealers would sell me a logic board due to saftey installation reasons (???). Ordered one from Chamberlain. The security 2.0 + stuff was more difficult to pair with the Homelink GDO buttons built in to the automobiles. The 2 wire GDO button is digital now rather than analog.

    Hardware list for one GDO.

    - SonOff basic WiFi module upgraded to current level of mcsTasmota via Linux serial JTAG port
    - 2 reed sensors for door open and closed sensors
    - DS18S20 old AAG 1-wire sensor + 4.7k Ohm pull up resistor
    - Liftmaster push button power control model # 883LMW
    - 22/4 and 22/2 alarm cable

    Hardware modifications for SonOff basic Wifi module

    - cut trace for 120VAC solenoid switch such that it functions as a low voltage relay
    - wired GPIO #4
    - connected GPIO #3 (serial IN) to #57 Door Closed reed switch
    - connected GPIO #4 (aux GPIO) to #56 Door Open reed switch
    - connected GPIO #14 to DS18S20 AAG temperature sensor (3.3 VDC, Ground and DQ GPIO #14 - NOTE: pull up resistor is between DQ and 3.3VDC)

    Changes: Removed DS18B20 temperature board and heatsink and went to an external DS18S20 temperature sensor.

    Hardware modifications to Liftmaster push button control model # 883LMW

    - Tiny button that can be glued on to the SonOff WiFi basic device
    - two wires are control wires to GDO (white and red)
    - two wires soldered for push button on to circuit board (blue and black)
    - programmed button removing current Chamberlain door button 2 wires. (Easy - just connect two wires and press button until it opens garage door).

    Hello Michael,

    Updated mcsMQTT plugin a couple of days ago and lost all of my settings. The events are there but no longer work. It's been fine now for about 2 years. I went to looking at the help document and it is different than the original one. Can I please have a copy of the original one from 2018 so that I can reconfigure the GDO open/close/intermediate sensors, GDO button and temperature sensor.

    I have updated the mcsMQTT plugin before and never saw this issue.

    I have switched back to using the hard wired alarm panel sensors to drive my GDO events.
