Great deal on Z-wave dry contact relay
Many uses, one of them for automatic garage door open/close for fraction of actual z-wave device like GD00Z (you must have properly installed garage door opener :) )

Can you explain how? I don't have a switch for my fireplace...just a thermostat

You can use the dry contact to trigger your button on the remote or the opener it self
Set the relay as momentary in ST

Perhaps I need to read a bit more or search online LOL.

If you're bored, feel free to PM me some links of interest you have used?

If your fireplace has 12v to the thermostat you would replace it with a switch. On the bottom of your fireplace, you would connect the dry sensor at the 120 v switch relay. You have to have electricity under your fireplace though to power this.

The instructions that it comes with has good diagrams. After looking at it, it took me about 15 minutes to wire up.

Thermostat is just controlled switch ( unless is modulating and that's not the case for fireplace )
Those 2 contact's from your gas valve can be connected to this dry relay

I highly recommend Home Assistant on a Raspberry Pi. I've got 433MHz switches (fireplace, garage door & lamps), lights through a Wink Hub, Nest products all fed into one convenient place where they can be made to work together. It supports a crazy number of devices and services; its free and lots of fun. Works with both Google Home and Alexa.

Good deal, OP.

So? This is dry contact
Dry meaning voltage independent it can trigger large relay for you

Garage Door Instructions
You can skip bunch of it if you have one button garage door opener control or wireless remote
In my case I don't need anything else just this relay :)

But you would still need a Tilt Sensor which would Tell SmartThings the status of the Garage Door? Open, Opening, Closed, Closing and Unknown.

So, apart from this relay, you must have SmartThings hub?
