The Linear GD00Z is a garage door opener designed to offer Z-Wave control for most overhead door motors, excluding any Assure Link or MyQ models. The Honeywell LYNX Touch series (L5100, L5200, L5210 and L7000) panels require a proprietary Honeywell 5877 garage door relay for this application. This linear product will NOT work with any Honeywell Lynx Touch or Lyric Controller. The 2GIG GC2 requires firmware revision 1.13 or higher and the GC3 requires 3.0.1 or higher.
The Linear GD00Z offers a more open-source option by allowing a Z-Wave controller (specifically, the VISTA Automation Module aka VAM or the Tuxedo Touch) to integrate control and status of your garage overhead doors. Each motor requires its own opener for discrete control. Also each opener comes with its own wireless tilt sensor to report open/close status wirelessly to the GD00Z. There is an included transformer which converts high voltage AC power from your AC receptacles to the low voltage power input required for the garage controller. The tilt sensor has a battery included and simply reports the status of the door back to the opener, wirelessly (345MHz). Then the opener will transmit this status and receive commands via Z-Wave to your Z-Wave controller.
The Honeywell VISTA series panels are some of the most popularly sold hardwired alarm systems over the past couple decades. Nationwide companies like ADT have installed thousands of these systems in homes and businesses across America. We have a solution for you to use your existing system to control your garage door using the Total Connect 2.0 app from anywhere in the world.
In order to set this service up you will need a VAM or Tuxedo Touch Z-Wave controller. Then you can enroll in self monitoring service any Alarmnet dealer. This service generally includes text and email alerts for alarms, troubles, etc. Furthermore, the Total Connect service also will allow you to setup customizable alerts to notify you when your garage door is left open for an adjustable period of time. Also, there is a wizard that walks you through setting up scenes, rules and scheduling for your garage door and any other Z-Wave devices in your home or business.
For those alarm owners that already have an existing Z-Wave controller that they are comfortable with, worry not. You can setup a primary and secondary controller on any Z-Wave mesh network. This means that you can keep your existing automation system and simply add another controller in order to integrate security conditions and alarm system operations as trigger points for scenes, rules and scheduling. Keep in mind, that only the primary controller can include devices.
