Ring only reports the sensor as 'Faulted' when 'Open' and 'Cleared' when 'Closed'. Per Ring Customer Support: "I am sorry but thats the only way it will tell you."
Consolation prize: The 'Tamper' message works.
You can get a 'Chirp Tone' on the base station when the sensor is 'Faulted', and you can see the status in 'event history' but it will not push 'Door Open'/'Door Closed' messages to your phone.
I used the Smart Home Monitor feature of the SmartThings app to create a Custom Monitoring Rule so SmartThings will send a notification SMS text message to my mobile phone every 30 minutes if the door is left open for 15 minutes. Works great!
I wish I could ask my Alexa/Echo for the status of the garage door, but it seems like Alexa does not support this device yet.
My Installation Hack: I have a typical multi-panel garage door, and initially I installed this sensor as directed in the instructions (flat against the door, on the top door panel). But I found that the door needed to be opened 2 to 3 feet before the sensor would indicate "OPEN". This was unacceptable to me, since I wanted the "OPEN" condition to trigger when it's open a mere 6 inches. This lets me open the door a little to ventilate the garage without the door being seen as "OPEN", but warns me if it's open enough that my nosy Beagle could squeeze under there and go on an unauthorized sniffing adventure. ;-) To address this, I mounted the sensor at almost a 45-degree angle (tilted downward, away from the door at the top) by using a small sheet metal nailing plate that I had lying around in my workshop (you can get one for a few cents at your local hardware store). See the attached photos. Using a vice, I carefully bent the nailing plate in two places to achieve the desired mounting angle. Then I drilled small holes in the plate to accept the sheet metal screws included with the sensor and two additional sheet metal screws (supplied by me) to mount the nailing plate against the door and the rail that runs along the top of the door. Now the sensor trips when the door is opened about 6 inches, woo hoo! :-)
I have upgraded to 4 stars. After the modification to a mercury switch, these tilt sensors work nearly flawlessly. I say nearly because, on a very rare occasion, I get a false report. But I feel that is related to SmartThings lapses. My battery levels are still above 80% from installation.
I have removed the ball tilt switches and soldered in glass mercury switches. They work very well. I do not anticipate any further false notifications. If you are comfortable with minor, small integrated circuit work, then you can easily modify these yourself.
I installed 3 of these on my garage doors about two months ago. I have integrated them into my SmartThings network and I am using Webcore routines to notify me of open doors. I have noticed random, false signals of open garage doors. I am taking the advice of other posters and modifying the ball tilt switch with glass mercury tilt switches. I will update my review after those modifications. I also took the advice of another poster and installed the units at a 45 degree angle to allow for open door notifications after just a couple of feet of door lift. That worked well.
