Finally after years of research and lamenting about which technology I was going to use for my smart garage door opener I bit the bullet and bought one. I went with the Linear GD00Z-4 Z-Wave controller so that I can hook it into my SmartThings Hub.

My garage door opener is very old and was manufactured around 1993. The install took me about 45 minutes from start to finish. Pairing the linear garage door opener to my smart thing Hub was very easy. I followed the simple instructions and got it working but first time out of the sheet.

My existing button door opener inside of the garage and the garage door opener in my wife’s Avalon still work. Now I can get rid of the ancient garage door opener remote that I’ve had in my truck for three years.
