Installed the Linear GD00Z-4 GD00Z-4 Z-Wave Garage Door Opener, it worked fine with open/close when people arrive/leave. Only one thing I can not figure out how to make it to work: When performing “Good night”, I want it to close ifit not closed yet. But the “garage door” did not not show up in the “Garage doors” section (ST says no available options), Instead, the garage door opener showed up in the “light or switches”. Does anyone know how to fix this? thanks!
Here is the app I use to control mine (I have the same model):

It’s an older version than the one I run but it still works. The one I run also has options for outlets to kill power to when the mode is changed.
But the “garage door” did not not show up in the “Garage doors” section (ST says no available options), Instead, the garage door opener showed up in the “light or switches”. Does anyone know how to fix this? thanks!
If you use a modified device type for the door, you can make it work.
I’ve modified the ST default “Z-Wave Garage Door Opener” to better work with the “doors & locks” module. As far as I know, this would only be useful for the linear GD00Z device (and variants including the Iris opener.) This will allow you to select your garage door device as both the “open/close sensor” and the “garage door opener relay.” At that point, from within the “doors & locks” module, you can use “open and close it remotely” (and perhaps the other sub-modules that open/close the door.)
All this does is to add the “relay switch” and “momentary” capabilities to the type, stubs on()/off(), and defines push() to either open or close the door (depending on it’s current state.) It’s not a perfect implementation, as the “doors & locks” module might show the door as being “stopped” wh…
This was inspired specifically by the GoControl/Linear Garage Door (GD00Z-4) which is a great garage door opened available on
Amazon but has a compatibility issue with SmartThings Door/Locks section. ST requires a connected “switch” to operate a garage door opener. The default Z-Wave Garage Door device type code that comes with ST does not support this to one cannot use the “Close Garage Door when someone leaves” or “Open garage door when someone arrives”.
We’ve two solutions for this (depending on your choice and preference).
1. Custom Z-Wave Garage Door Opener/Controller device handler with Switch functionality.
This allows any Garage Door to interact with any ST apps through a standard Switch on/off interface to open/close respectively. This allows for control through the Door/Locks s…
Thanks! I will try it tonight.
It finds the garage opener as i can see now, but will it close the garage door if the door is not closed?
My version will close the door when the mode changes only if it’s open.
Cool! Exactly what I needed.
Thanks, John. I am using Enhanced Z-wave garage door opener right now. Will also test RB’s tonight.
My opener has 4 connections points, but the GD00Z-4 has 2 wires. How do I connect it? I’m thinking 2 of them may be for the remote console on the exterior of the house…the one that requires a 4-digit code.
I’m at my wits end. I’ve tried everything found in multiple threads where people have had issues with this unit.
Somehow I ended up with 2 of them in my devices and can’t exclude the 2nd one.
Going to return unless someone has a new idea that hasn’t already been shared.
Is there a way to get a text message with this instead of just a notification? thanks
