    HS-DS100+ (Door sensor) how to force status "closed"

    I have a few of these that since their in the cold garage, they don't seem to always report their "closed" status.
    More often than not I can get them to update their status to "closed" by opening the door for a few seconds, then closing it - BUT I'd rather not wear out my garage door springs doing that - OR I'm not home at the moment and can't be there to do it.
    I'd like to set the status "closed" so that if by some chance someone breaks in, my events for "opened" will trigger.

    Any way I can make a virtual event or change some property somewhere so I can toggle the status to "closed" even though HS webpage thinks their not?

    You might try something like in post 4 in this thread, just change the device number and other parameters for your sensor.

      It could just be the alignment of the magnet and the sensor. Garage doors are mechanically pretty in-precise. When in does show "open" and you know it's closed---mechanically jiggle the door while watching the sensor light to see if it shows a transmission(and hence a "closed" signal to HS)

        How far away is this sensor from your Z-Wave interface? How many powered Z-Wave devices are there between this particular sensor and your Z-Wave interface?

          Thanks, I did consider that and have made every attempt to ensure the sensor and magnet align equally. I'm the guy who makes/sells these:

            There are two HomeSeer wall switches in the garage, and another two inside the house through a people door opposite the two in the garage. All of these are still at least 1 other powered Z-Wave device away from where the Z-Wave USB stick is in the PC.

            Are you saying the door/window sensor will only relay/mesh through 1 device away from home base? or is there some optimization that should be done?

            For whatever reason door/window sensors in this particular house have always been suspect at reporting closed - whereas in my own home I can only remember once having a problem.

            I do wish there was a configurable option for these types of door/window sensors to "double report" (obviously at the expense of increased battery consumption) because in every instance opening/closing the door again fixes it.

              Thanks, made a manually triggered event to run script with &hs.SetDeviceValueByRef(236,23,True) (where 236 is the ID of the door, and 23 is the value for closed) and this accomplished marking it as closed
