I have a Gosund switch that plugs into an outlet. I’d like to plug it into the outlet near my garage door opener and open and close the garage door. What type of switch can I plug into the gosund outlet to then wire to the garage door opener. It’s just a simple momentary switch to open or close the garage door. My security camera will let me see if the garage door is open or closed so I don’t need any logic in the switch. I think I just need a momentary switch that will throw when the outlet changes state. Any ideas if such a switch is available?
The garage door needs safety switches, as well as a reversing switch, a switch to detect end of travel (limit switch) and a switch to detect that correct force has been applied to keep the door closed. Simply turning the power to the whole door-opener on and off does nothing.
If you want to use the Gosund outlet to bypass the remote control terminals, you'd need to rewire the inside of the Gosund switch, or use an external 120 VAC relay to provide only momentary switched contacts without 120 VAC applied across them. From your question, this appears to beyond your current capabilities, and could lead to shocking results.
