If you want to provide smart control for your garage door, then the GoControl GD00Z-8-GC Z-Wave Plus Garage Door Opener might be for you! The module is wired directly to the garage door motor that it is controlling. Open and close commands are sent wirelessly from a compatible Z-Wave hub.
By using the GoControl GD00Z-8-GC, you can control your garage door and check its current status remotely through an associated interactive automation platform, such as Alarm.com. You can also create smart scenes to have the garage door open to close automatically based on a schedule or with predetermined system events.
The GD00Z-8-GC detects whether the garage door is opened or closed using an included tilt sensor that is installed on the garage door itself at the top of the door. The tilt sensor communicates using wireless Z-Wave Plus signals. It uses an included CR2032 coin battery for power, and you should be able to go about two (2) years without a battery replacement.
You should have the GD00Z-8-GC module in close proximity to the Z-Wave controller when pairing it to the Z-Wave network. Then install the GD00Z-8-GC in its final location, which is typically right by the garage door motor. Use the fixed connection wires from the GD00Z-8-GC to connect it to the designated terminals on the garage door motor.
The GD00Z-8-GC will need to connect with an outlet for power. There is often a second outlet by the garage door motor that you can use for this purpose. There is a power supply connector that comes included with the GD00Z-8-GC for this purpose. The power supply has an input rating of 120VAC, 0.35A, and an output rating of 12VDC, 1A.
As a 500-Series Z-Wave Plus device, the GD00Z-8-GC supports optional S2 security for controllers that support the S2 protocol. It will use S0 security on hubs that do not support S2. There are some compatibility limitations for the GD00Z-8-GC, as it cannot be used with the Honeywell Lyric or the Honeywell L5100-ZWAVE used with LYNX Touch Panels. These systems can use the Honeywell GDCK Garage Door Controller Kit instead.
