Oh, by the way… For those of you have who have been using the device handler in SmartThings up to this point the only thing this changes is that instead of having to wait up to 5 minutes for SmartThings to poll the OpenGarage the firmware on the OpenGarage tells SmartThings (and Hubitat) when a change has occurred so they know immediately when the door has opened or closed.

This is much better for automations. For example, I have an automation that if the Garage Door has opened in the last 5 minutes and then the back garage door opens AND it’s dark a subset of lights turns on. It makes it so my wife never has to walk into a dark home when she arrives home. (Yes, there are other ways to do this with presence sensors. No lectures, please.)
