Programing Garage Door and Door Sensors

I have been trying to write a custom program to notify me at 10PM that my garage door is still open.  The when conditions for the Garage Door and Sensor are unclear.  I have tried several programing variations and have been unable to get a predictable result.

 

I am trying to write a custom program that goes like this:  At 10pm check status of Garage Door, If Garage Door is open send notification.   Or, send notification, if Garage Door is open between 10:00pm and 10:01pm.

 

For the Garage Door Sensor:

1.  What does "Is Opened" mean?

A) The garage door has just opened and the sensor has changed from closed to open, or

B)  The garage door has been/is in the open position and the sensor says open

 

2.  What does "Is Closed" mean?

A)  The garage door has just closed and the sensor has chaged from open to closed, or

B)  The garage door has been/is in the closed position and the sensor states closed

 

3.  What does "Is Not Opened" mean?

A)  The garage door is in the closed postion and the sensor states closed, or

B)  The garage door was triggered to open but the door remained closed, or

C)  Something else

 

4.  What does "Is Not Closed" mean?

A)  The Garage door is in the open postion and the sensor states open, or

B)  The Garage door was triggered to close but the door remained open, or

C)  Something else

 

For the Garage Door Opener:

 

1.  What does "Is Opened" mean?

A)  The garage door has just been opened, or

B)  The garage door has been/is in the open postion

 

2.  What does "Is Closed" mean?

A)  The garage door has just been closed' or

B)  The garage door has been/is in the closed postion

 

3.  What does "Not Opened" mean?

A)  The garage door has been/is in the closed postion, or

B)  The garage door was triggered to open and it did not, or

C)  The garage door was triggered to close, or

D)  Something else.

 

4.  What does "Not Closed" mean?

A)  The garage door has been/is in the open position, or

B)  The garage door was triggered to close and it did not, or

C)  The garage door was triggered to open, or

D)  Something else

I am stuggling with the exact same goal/issues.  So far, I've been able to creae a program that reliably texts me at 10 PM each and every night, regardless of doorlock status.

The program I have is:

  • Send Notification to xxx
  • When FRONT DOOR LOCK Is Not Locked
  • The time is between 9:55 pm and 10:00 pm

The same program is duplicated for each garage door sensor, substituting "GARAGE DOOR SENSOR X Is Not Closed" for "FRONT DOOR LOCK Is Not Locked"

 

Any insight and/or guidance?  The basic gist, like Mike above, is that I want to be notified if my door lock is unlocked or my garage doors are open at 10.  I don't want them to auto-lock/auto-close at the moment...they may be in that state for a reason.  I just want to be notified about it so I can choose to take action or not.
