    ah ok no inching is there, i've got the timer set to 0.5 seconds you hear the SV click on and then off and the motor operates. You can also stop and start the motor from the ewelink app with the lower inching timer.

    you a genius :) its working spot on! the only strange behavior is when the garage door closes fully, the motor seems to detect a collision and then reopens. any ideas? You hear the clicking from the motor's board not the SV. Disconnecting the SV stops this behavior.

    Do you have a generator or battery bank at home to guard against load-shedding?
