I am thinking of snagging one of these two garage door openers. My understanding is that the GDC1 is more reliable and that the GD00Z-4 has more features (because it is considered an open/close device), but am I not understanding that properly?
I can’t find any comparisons so does anyone have an opinion on why you would pick one or the other?
@Everette, the GDC1 is basically the MIMOLite without all the other bells and whistles. Depending on how/where you get the GDC1, it will come with a wired contact sensor for open/close similar to the one I used with my MIMOLite. I’ve posted pictures of it in the Community, so do a quick search on “MIMOLite garage door magnetic contact” and you’ll see one of the posts.
If I had to do it all over again, personally I’d go with the GDC1.
After looking up the GDC1, I think the statement above is somewhat confusing depending on how read.
The GDC1 is a Mimolite WITH bells and whistle.
The GDC1 has a visual (flashing light) and audio alert (5 seconds of beeping) when it is activated.
Which does agree with john’s statement about doing it over with the GDC1; a smarter and safer route.
The only difference I can see between the GDC1 and the Linear is the GDC1 has a wired sensor. Linear has a wireless sensor. Like JDRoberts said, personal choince really.
I have the Linear device and haven’t had any issues with it.
You took my words too literally, but I should have said the features (bells and whistles was a slang term) of the MIMOLite are not in GDC1. The MIMOLite does a whole lot more, whereas the GDC1 focuses just on a garage door device.
