Garage Door Notification if Door is Open at Specific Time (and for time duration)

Please add some type of notification through the app so that I can be alerted to the door remaining open at a time I pick so that I don’t leave it up all night. I switched to Wyze from Meross for smart garage door control because I have so many Wyze products and am happy with all of them. This is a feature that I previously had with Meross that I miss not having. All there is right now Is a setting to receive a notification if left open for an hour (or less). We have kids that go out through the garage and it remains open for long periods. So notification would likely go off a lot with me having no interest. Setting it to alert me at 10 pm if my door is still open would be great!

@R.Good you know how to do this?

There is nothing for a notification on specific time of the door being open within the GDC capabilities today.

The function @dac60421 is referring to for the other product is called “Overnight Reminder”
It basically just sends a reminder if the door is open at a specific time as requested above.

Just for awareness our forum Moderators review the Wishlist items to ensure the request is not a current functionality or if the request (or similar) has not already been made before the Wishlist item is made public. One may slip through the cracks but the team is pretty detailed and thorough. I have had a few redirected :wink:

Don’t forget to vote for your wishlist item @dac60421

This would be great.

It would also be good to be able to have open and closed separate instead of the same toggle. Kind of weird I can’t just select open notifications or just closed notifications…it’s either both or neither.

Similarly, I’d love an action that auto-closes the door if it is open after a certain time. Something like:

Trigger: Garage door has been open for > X minutes
Valid times: 10pm to 6am
Action: close door.

Garage Alert Status

It would be great to have an alert when you leave the garage door open for longer than a specified time!

Especially since this is literally in the marketing description for the device,

" Get notified when your garage door is left open.

Forgot to shut the garage door?

We’ll notify you if your garage door was left open or if someone is opening or closing it."

The fact that it DOESN’T do this is false advertising as far as I’m concerned.

It does do those things:

Notifications for Open, closed, and left open for X minutes.

They actually described what it currently does. It was an honest and accurate description. And I like that feature. I use it.

Here, we’re asking for additional features that will check the door only at certain times of day on a schedule, rather than all the time. I might not care if my garage is open on a Saturday or if it opens and shuts in the morning, but if my daughter sneaks out with the car at 3am, then I’d like it to tell me, or if I forget to close it when it gets dark.
