Garage door using smart implant?

Question

Hi!

I use a smart implant to open or close my garage door (by impulse, one impulse opens or closes depending on the state of the door).
The only problem is that the implant is set as a lamp, which means that when using Google Home, I need to say "turn on garage door" to open or close it and when I use "turn on all lights" it also opens the garage door (happened a couple of times).

What do I need to change in the home center 2 in order to have it registered as a door/gate?

  • Is there a way to change the controlled device type as a gate? I suppose it is just changing 1 parameter to get an unlock button instead of a on/off?

    Change device role and category. I used to use binary switch. Google will not immediatelly recoginze the change. You need to wait a few days. Then it will not turn it on when you say turn on all lights.

    Where do I change role and category for the device ? (I use HC2)

    It looks like this today, and still reacts as a lamp:
