Be notified if I leave garage door open

I have garage door sensors installed.  Is there a way for me to get an alert if I forget to close the garage door when I leave?

Re: Be notified if I leave garage door open

That is a great idea for a program. And one I had not really thought about. I was able to create one for myself that is now working.  I did go into add a program and created a custom program that sends me a notification (text) 4 min after event (garage door open) 

if you close your door when you are there, (as I do)  it should only text you when you leave and door is left open.  You might be able to even get it only to text when alarm is set, but I did not go that far.

Thanks for the info on how to set that up.  I have it set so if the garage door is left open for 5 minutes, it will alert me and close automatically.

Even better, did not think about letting the system close it.
