I’m running two OpenGarage devices, bought months apart, with identical configurations on v1.0.8 and integrated into my Homeassistant setup purely to detect car presence in a double garage.
Door Threshold 0
Vehicle Threshold 150
Read Intervals 120
Over a period of time my first OpenGarage distance has become totally inaccurate, although the second one reports accurate distances.
1. With car, 72-75 cm
2. Without car, 223-225 cm
1. Very occasional reading (without car): 450cm
2. Very occasional reading (with car): 74cm
3. Usual reading (approx. 80% of the time): 3-5cm
I’ve tried to resolve this behaviour with the following checks / tests:
1. Cleaned sensor and checked alignment.
2. Reset configuration and re-configured
3. Replaced USB power cable
4. Replaced USB power supply
5. Used a more powerful USB supply (now supplying 2.4a per port).
I’ve also tried to re-upload the firmware via the UI, as well as downgrade via the UI – both failed.
I’d appreciate any advice at this point.August 2, 2018 at 3:22 am #1232
Now consistently reads 3-5cm.
I’d really appreciate some advice at this point as essentially this unit (of my two) is now useless for the purpose I purchased it for.August 17, 2018 at 3:18 pm #1239
I suggest that you submit a support ticket to get a replacement.August 17, 2018 at 3:59 pm #1242
I’ve now been able to resolve the issue – the problem has not reappeared for the past 12 days after I dismantled it and refitted the case.
I can only assume that something shifted inside the case over a period of time after originally mounting it.
