I just install home assistant on raspberry pi.how to setup open garage.any guide step by step ?July 26, 2019 at 1:10 am #1803
Follow the instructions there. Once set up, Home Assistant talks directly to your device (s) over WiFi.July 27, 2019 at 6:13 pm #1808
You can also integrate OpenGarage with Home Assistant using MQTT. I’ve switched to going this route because then OpenGarage is pushing updates to Home Assistant, rather than Home Assistant having to poll the OpenGarage unit with HTTP requests for updates.
Arcik100, let me know if you want more information on this option.December 30, 2020 at 7:33 pm #2378
I have just swapped from using HomeBridge to Home Assistant, but can’t get HA to recognise my OpenGarage unit. I have read the documentation referred to above, but still can’t get it to work. My configuration.yaml is as follows …
cover: - platform: brunt username: !secret brunt_user password: !secret brunt_pw - platform: group name: Office Blinds entities: - cover.e - cover.n - cover.s - platform: opengarage garage: host: 192.168.2.80 device_key: !secret opengarage name: Garage Door
I have tried all sorts of variations of indentations etc, but no luck. No Device and no Entity ever appears. Can anyone see where I have gone wrong?

Anyone managed to get it to work with HA?June 6, 2021 at 8:19 pm #2410
I’m using it with HA. What issue are you having?June 24, 2021 at 8:52 am #2412
Which was is a quicker update on the state of the door? Via API (dependent on the polling setting both in HA and OpenGarage) or MQTT?
Was caught out with the garage closing on me as Home Assistant kicked off the “open garage when I am home” automation while I was already inside and the garage door already opened with a remote. Must have been in between the poll intervals, so HA/OG still did not know that garage opened.
Also have a question about the reed switch – if I add it, and latest firmware check for both distance and switch, does it have a delay on reed polling or its instant?September 16, 2021 at 1:20 pm #2417
I’m not using any automations with it, but I am using a card on my dashboard to open/close as needed.October 8, 2021 at 11:49 am #2429
FYI, Home Assistant now has OpenGarage as an integration now and doesn’t require editing the config manually, which is nice.
