    Don't want a MyQ because this isn't actually for a garage door, its for my hangar door. I just need a simple monitor that will alert me when the door opens, or if it's during certain hours, or for a specified length of time. If it's Z-wave or the like, I don't want to have to run a computer to host software, or buy a hundred bucks of other equipment....

    What’s wrong with MyQ? I use it with the home garage door openers and it works great.

    I assume you have wifi at the hangar, or do you need something with cellphone connectivity?

    It won’t open my hydraulic hangar door opener. It’s serious overkill. I have a myq for the garage already. I’m pretty sure the sensors have to be in line of sight, or I could use the myQ I already have.
