Private project [HÖRMANN REMOTE CONTROLLED GARAGE PORT CONTROLLED WITH ESP8266]

#1 Post by grovkillen » 02 Oct 2017, 09:38

I have created this blog where I will add more specific projects and not generic stuff regarding ESP Easy and the hardware it supports. I hope this can evolve into a Q&A for the blog.

Hi,

great project, thanks! I have a hormann garage door myself, which seems to use 868mhz remotes. What I did not catch from the blog post is how you communicate to the garage door motor itself, do you use the relays? or do you actually replicate and send the 868mhz (or other RF) signal?

great, so you use the new non-original remote to communicate to motor.
This is controlled by the ESPeasy, right? The 4 relais are used to 'press' the buttons on the remote.

Are you able to controll the status of the door? Open/Close?
I used an ultrasonic sensor to check the status. This is easy to use with ESPeasy and D1 mini.

@grovkillen your project look over-complicated.
Base on Hormann ProMatic Series 3 page 25(but should apply to all) you can attach NO momentary switch to trigger the Open/Close action, no need to (re)program a spare remote control, no need for relay, just a small EL816 optocupler can do the job.
I did similar projects on different brands.

Just my opinion,

Regards,

@danmero thanks for your reply and the link - I would like to use a 868mhz transreceiver to control the garage door. Any idea on how I would approach this?

A little complicated solution, but well done and working :)

Really nice and interesting blog - keep it up!

Always the question is Why?... you want to use this path.

Story: I was 600km away and a friend want to borrow a tool. I told him to go in front of my garage and call me to open the door.He call me, I open the door and guide him to find the tool. He ask me if I'm home (even if I told him before that I'll be away for the week) and was surprise that you can do that from anywhere since distance is irrelevant this days.

My unit did not have a connection for a simple NO. Only a flat cable to the membrane switch panel. So by using a cloner I could get away with it. So I understand your comments on "over complicated" but in reality it was the most straight line way to do it

Yep, correct regarding the relay.

Regarding open close status. Another esp is doing that. It has a limit switch for the close status. And a rotary encoder for position if open.

Can you post the model of your door control.

I use the same NodeMCU, 2 NO contacts for Open/Close, one Dummy to hold the last state Open/Close and rules/timers to trigger the action.
- If both open and dummy value 1 , action closing.
- If both open and dummy value 0, action opening.
- If door close , dummy value 0, strobe off
- if door open , dummy value 1

For dual garage door, 2 controllers I use one NodeMcu, 4 door contacts, 2 LED strobe.

Those terminals are not on my unit. I guess it's a cheap one?
