The GoControl Linear Garage Door Opener (GD00Z-4) lets you remotely open and close almost any sectional garage door. With both audible and visual warnings that trigger prior to remotely activated door movement, the GD00Z-4 meets UL 325-2010 safety requirements. The GD00Z-4 also includes a wireless tilt sensor that attaches to the inside of the garage door and reports whether it is "open" or "closed." This Z-Wave garage door opener provides peace of mind, convenience, security, and safety.
Connect the GD00Z-4 with SmartThings to open or close your garage door from anywhere—perfect for allowing entry for a handyman, or for closing the door if you forgot to. You can also set up automations to open or close the garage door as you arrive and leave home. The GD00Z-4 will act as a Z-Wave repeater for other Z-Wave devices on your SmartThings network.
