Help for garage heater automation

Help for garage heater automation

So this week I’m installing a heater in my garage. And I like being able to tell an ecobee thermostat to turn off or lower the temperature when the garage door is open. You know because I didn’t grow up in a barn and I don’t want to waste energy heating the outside. 😉 So each of the 3 stalls in my garage has its own door and are already connected to the HomeKit via myQ. So HomeKit is able to tell when they are open or closed. But I went into the automation settings and I see that I can perform and act WHEN a door closes or opens, but since I have 3 doors, I would think that the automation will be confused. I guess we were hoping for some kind of automation that would act like – if ANY garage door condition is OPEN, then heat to 35. If ALL garage door status is CLOSED, then heat to 55. Anyone has magic ideas I could do does this work? Thanks!
