  • Backyard Gate Lock and Sensor Project

    I recently completed a project using a Z-Wave controlled outdoor gate lock and sensor. The lock control and gate sensor are wired to a FortrezZ MIMOlite located indoors that creates HS3 devices for control and status. The lock and outside keypad are powered by rechargeable batteries which are connected to an indoor 18V power supply that provides a trickle charge to keep the batteries charged. Here are the details of the components and some pictures:

    Hello, I am waiting for the MIMOlite to arrive to use for a similar purpose--open a driveway FAAC gate 455D control panel. in the meantime, I have a NuTone NSF20Z from Amazon, though now I see the product was discontinued from website. http://www.nutone.com/products/product/60f4d6a9-6631-4f85-a527-5b961bdbea3b
    Can anyone tell me how to make the
    NSF20Z
    send a momentary ON, like the TEST BUTTON of a gate controller, as opposed to staying on.
    thanks, Chris

      I don't believe you can use this to toggle/send a momentary signal. The MIMOLite and the Sonoff 4CH Pro can do that. Here's a screenshot of the Q&A page of the Nutone product:

        I'm searching for a similar solution Many thanks for posting and sharing this example....

        I suppose the FortrezZ MIMOlite (Z-Wave) is used to inhibit the lock from opening or allowing entry except as you program it in HS3 events?


        Also the SM-226L-3Q Seco-Larm Weatherproof Magnetic Switch where did it wired into is it status or part of your control?

          The Mimolite itself doesn't inhibit anything...it provides control to open the lock...which relocks after 10 seconds. The time to re-lock is a function of the Bulldog lock which you can change.

          Also the SM-226L-3Q Seco-Larm Weatherproof Magnetic Switch where did it wired into is it status or part of your control?
          The magnetic switch provides a sensor to indicate if the gate is open or closed and this is shown in HS3 in my case as the "Backyard Gate Status". There is no control in the magnetic switch itself.
          The Mimolite control device in HS3 allows opening the latch of the lock.

            taylormia,

            Thanks for the clarification I didn't look at the wiring close enough......

            What action in HS3 do you open the lock? or what events cause the MIMMOlite to send an open signal to the lock?

            I was contemplating installing a MIMMO2 with a second relay in series with the Lock Solenoid. this would allow me to disable the lock from external access based on HS3 event i.e. night time hours.

            I supposed you wired the magnetic switch to the MIMOlite, which allowed you to see the gate status.

              The lock control and gate sensor are wired to the MIMOlite which creates HS3 devices for control and status. The Mimoiite lock control creates a HS3 device that has an "Open" button (see diagram of HS3 devices) to open the lock. You can use this device in events to open the lock if you wanted. I've connected my Echo dot to use voice commands to open the lock if needed. I don't use any events to lock it since it self locks after 10 seconds.
