The Vision ZG8101 is a Z-Wave compatible sensor that detects if a garage door is vertical (closed) or horizontal (open), making it ideal for added security of external garages.

The detector can have an external switch connected to it and includes an internal tamper switch

It is easily fitted to any garage door using screws or double-sided tape. Battery replacement is simple and the detector even tells you when they need replacing by flashing its LED and sending an alert to the central controller.

Note: To be used as part of a Z-Wave network this sensor requires a suitable Z-Wave controller.

Easy to fit but a few false positives
I've had two of these. Initially the first was just turning the garage lights on when the door opened. All worked fine until the unit started signaling a close right after it signalled open after about a year or so of operation. So I got a second and again everything was fine until I decided to add a notification to my phone that the door was open, that's when I started getting notifications that the door was open when it wasn't. I can't work out why this is happening, perhaps it vibration from the traffic outside? I don't know. Sometimes it sends a close straight away, and sometimes the close comes later on thinking the door has been open for a while, either way I would prefer it to stop happening. So I'm looking for another solution. It's a pity because the fitting and operation is simple and really useful for any door as it is just a rocker switch so there's no need to make sure magnets are aligned or anything like that, it's just that I find it unreliable.

Early days but easy install and set up
The Garage Door Open detector was really easy to set up in Vera and installed fine onto door with the adhesive tape provided. Its mostly works ok, but (and it could be Vera) but I have missed a couple of notifications where the door has been open but not for more than a few minutes. Will be keeping a close to see if this is a re-occurring issue.

To alert when my garage door is open.

To alert when my garage door is open.

Excellent device. Stuck to the inside of my garage door and used to send me alerts whenever the garage door was opened with a highly sensitive garage door opener. I combined this with a TBK68E power controller which turns off the power to the garage door when it's not required

This device is compatible to VERA PLUS?

Doe anyone know how to reverse the open closed state on this? Mine is saying open when closed and closed when open! Very odd!

BEST ANSWER: Have you mounted it upside down by mistake?
I want to remotely detect if either of my garage doors is open, and light an indicator indoors if it is. What equipment do I need?
Barry M. 15 Dec 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have used this device along with a Vera Lite unit and a TKBHome mains socket in a similar way for testing. I basically created a trigger in the Vera software to read the status of the garage door detector. On opening I had it run a scene which turned on a lamp. On closing I had it run another scene which turned off the lamp. This was purely for testing the trigger and I now operate a relay with it for an alarm buzzer in a similar way. Setting the detector in the right way to get it to work takes a little bit of messing about, but I managed it with a bit of patience! Hope this helps :)
