Combine a controller and a gateway in a raspberry pi
I was wondering if it's possible to use a raspberry pi to be both a controller and a gateway at the same time. Specifically thinking of using hass.io as the controller.
Has anyone tried this?
Garage door status sensors ideas
Happy New Year! I'm new here and really excited about the work done here.
I'm working on building a garage door opener. I'm trying to find a sensor to detect if the garage door is open or closed. I don't want to use a reed switch as I want it to be wireless. Basically my sensor will connect using the Rf24l01 to the gateway. The gateway is connected to the garage opener via a relay.
Any ideas of what sensors I could use to detect the status of the garage door?
I looked at a tilt sensor but it doesn't help with 90 degree angles, it detects 0 and 180 degrees.
