GD00Z-2 not opening Chamberlain Model: LW2200 garage opener


#1

I am having a Chamberlain Model: LW2200 garage opener and I installed a Linear GD00Z-2 remote opener in order to use it with my ADT Pulse. I am able to see on ADT pulse the status change - open/close - as the tit sensor works fine but I cannot actually make open or close the garage door. I am sending the command - open /close the z wave makes the warning signals - flashing for 5 seconds but nothing after that. All the connections seem to be okay, pairing is okay as I can see it on my app. Any suggestions? Thanks

Read through this thread.

Is your wall button a simple push button? Or doors it have motion built in? The linear is not compatible with ask that fancy stuff.

My wall button is a simple push button.

Can you post a close up picture of where the wires go into the Chamberlain


#5

both white wires of z wave go into the the red and white ports of Chamberlain, first and second port from the left. The other ports are taken from the reverse garage safety features. I will try to take a picture of it though

No worry. I know those are crazy tight fits.

Try removing the wires front the push button and only using the linear wires… Making sure you have good contact.


#7

are you referring to the wires that are already installed in Chamberlain and are connected to the wall single button?

Strip the wires a little longer than what the factory stripped. This is the issue I had installing my GZ004 just 2 days ago on my Liftmaster Garage Door panel


#9

I removed the wires from the back of the opener, used only the linear wires - switched places, still nothing …


#10

stripped them longer than they were, still nothing…

Just ruling it out.

I called the installer of my garage door opener (Chamberlain Elite Series, Model 3850) and was told a very similar thing. Expanded features of the “Smart Panel” opener (motion sensing light, remote opener lockout, safety sensors, etc) result in incompatibility with Z-wave control devices. I had seen a PDF with a list of known incompatible openers here: http://www.nortekcontrol.com/products/2gig/gd00z-4-z-wave-garage-door-opener-remote-controller-accessory/ (link is at bottom of the page).
My model was not listed there, so I figured I was good to go. Unfortunately, that was not the case. I have a second garage door opener (smaller of the 2 doors in my 3 car garage) that has a “dumb” push button opener, so I ended up installing the GC00z opener on that device instead. Not 100%, but still allows me to control access to the garage remotely as needed.
