Oh, that was very helpful, know its working just fine.

really thankfully for your help.

What I think you might need to do, is change the model back to sonoff basic, and then in the “show as” field that appears, set this back to “None”. Then change the model back to GD-DC5. Then save and restart.

What needs to show is your current log line when the plugin initialises

[22/09/2021, 16:26:25] [eWeLink] [Garage door ] initialising with options {"logging":"standard","operationTimeDown":120,"operationTimeUp":115,"showAs":"garage"}.

needs to be at the end
