Z-Wave Control For Garage Doors

The GoControl Z-Wave Plus Garage Door Controller, S2 Security adds Z-Wave remote control to most sectional garage door openers, allowing you to operate the opener through a Z-Wave controller, smartphone app, or an existing pushbutton. This new version of GoControl's garage door controllers features S2 encryption for more secure wireless communication and increased Z-Wave transmission range.

  • Adds Z-Wave control to a connected garage door opener
  • Works with almost any sectional garage door
  • Can be included in Z-Wave automation scenes and schedules
  • Included tilt sensor detects door's open/closed status
  • Customizable audio and visual alerts enhance safety

The Z-Wave Plus Garage Door Controller can emit audio and visual alerts to warn people nearby when the garage door is about to open/close. The included tilt sensor also sends status updates to inform you when the garage door is closed, open, or moving.

Installation Details

The Z-Wave Plus Garage Door Controller wires to your garage door opener and can be used in conjunction with an existing pushbutton. It mounts near the garage door opener either on the existing opener hardware with the included bracket, or directly to the wall with the included mounting hardware. The controller is powered by the included power supply, which plugs into a standard outlet.

The Garage Door Tilt Sensor mounts inside the top of your garage door using screws or double-sided tape. The sensor is powered by a pre-installed battery, and communicates wirelessly with the controller.
