This is an update to my post about the Garage Door Notification which was based on my Wifi Garage Door Controller .

So about a week after my post about sending a repeating notification through Home Assistant, the developers created a new ‘Alert’ component that basically made my post obsolete. So I decided to switch over to the Alert component and add some extra features.

One thing I was disappointed about with the alert component was the fact that it didn’t have a built in way to send a notification when the alert condition no longer exists. So I added that in using an automation. I also added the ability to acknowledge the alert via telegram so that you can stop getting the repeating notifications.

Here is the Home Assistant yaml code to accomplish all this. There are plenty of tutorials out there on how to get your API key and chat ID for telegram. But let me know if you need any help with that:

And as always, if you have any questions feel free to contact me.
