While it can integrate a safety sensor, I am not sure how to use that information to trigger garage door action. Specifically, it’s not easy to tell whether the door is in the process of ‘closing’ — I guess one thing you can do is to keep track of the time stamp when the door changes from ‘open’ to ‘close’ state, and give an estimate of how many seconds it takes for the door to fully close. During that time period, if the safety sensor is triggered, stop the door from closing. This will be a fair amount of work, including adding sensor wires to the circuit board, modifying the firmware etc.
