The Telguard GDC1 is a garage door controller with an included wireless tilt sensor. The GDC1 speaks Z-Wave which allows it to integrate wireless garage door control to the Honeywell Tuxedo Touch, VISTA Automation Module (VAM) and the L5100-Zwave controller for LYNX Touch series panels (L5100, L5200 and L7000). There is a relay that requires AC power through the use of the included transformer. You can plug in the transformer to any open AC wall outlet. There is generally an open plug on the duplex that is ceiling mounted above the motor.
Although the relay wirelessly speaks to the Z-Wave controller, it also requires a short wired connection to your garage motor. Keep in mind that not all motors are compatible, especially the MyQ series. There is a black 5 foot patch wire designed to be landed on the garage motor in parallel (matched) with the existing wiring to the local wall button.
In order to know the status of the garage door being open or closed, you must install the included the wired sensor on the overhead door. There is a 16 foot gray cable that should be connected to the contact. Use the installation guide to properly mount the tilt sensor using the proper orientation. Keep in mind, that the sensor will not offer monitored protection of the garage door; nor will it integrate the status of the door into Total Connect 2.0 for remote status. The GDC1 will simply be seen as a toggle switch on Total Connect.
After the GDC1 is powered up, wired to the motor and paired to the tilt sensor you will need to include it. Follow step 4 in the setup guide to include the device into your system. Place your controller into inclusion mode and press the small black button on the board of the GDC1. When you first include the device into your Z-wave controller we recommend that you verify the open/close status matches to the on/off position of the switch on Total Connect. If it does not, simply remove the patch cable between the motor and Telguard device. Then toggle the door with the wall button and reconnect the wiring.
