What recent garage door opener models are compatible with the gocontrol device? What are you using? Amazon links?
In the smartthings app it has native support for Iris and Linear Go Control devices to open garage door openers. My friend had Linear for his old garage door and said it worked fine so i went ahead and got that. My garage door is 20+ years old and unfortunately i couldnt find the manual anywhere on line. This was the start of my problems.
There were 4 hook-ins to tighten wires down with screws. 1 and 2 were hooked to the sensors/wall switch and the 2nd two were blank. The tester in me decided to try and use the 3 and 4 screws to see if it worked; it didnt so i figured they were either shot or for another use. I then proceeded to move the wires around and test by opening and closing the garage door and figure out what the other items were and if they really were busted. Figured out the 3rd one is for the opener light.
After playing around with it i decided to hook up to the same wiring as the button/sensors and it worked! Though after testing it 2-3 times to ensure working it cut out. I then had to wait a few minutes with a few unplugging and plugging back in to get it to finish going up or down.
Worried that i shorted something i connected the original wires to test. The same thing happened. Waiting some time appears as if its able to open/close but if i want to do anything beyond that it appears to short out and i have to wait time and unplug/plugin.
All that being said im looking for a new garage door opener unfortunately. Looking at amazon i found them for roughly $200 and they contract out an install for around $150; this was my original understanding to get an idea on how much this was going to cost me. The $90 smart addition to my house is now getting expensive but i accept that it was an old garage door and probably needed a replacement anyways.
As im looking through what is compatible and what isnt it appears as if most of the new garage door openers that the local garage door companies are selling are Chamberlain or lifemaster which on the gocontrol pdf it advises many of the models the local installers had were incompatible.

On top of this it seems like the local installers are charging $600+ for a opener and installation! That being said I’d like to more than likely go the amazon purchase/installation if possible but I want to make sure i get something that 100% works rather than get it all installed and find out my gocontrol wont be compatible thus rendering the whole initiative useless.
That being said, the question above at the beginning remains. Are there any new garage doors that are compatible with the gocontrol device? Preferably ones that are on Amazon. In talking with gocontrol customer service they only have a list of what IS NOT compatible and no reference to what IS compatible. They said anything with MyQ or liftmaster smart connections does not work. Help please
