ST & Linear’s GD00Z-1 Z-Wave garage door controller


(Tom) #1

Any thoughts about Linear’s GD00Z-1 Z-Wave garage door controller releasing in March 2014. http://www.cepro.com/article/lowes_iris_to_launch_first_ever_ul_compliant_zwave_garage_door_controller/ces

I already have 2 MyQ Liftmaster/Chamberlain. I wd love to get it to work w my ST without having to buy another garage door opener controls like this Linear zwave unit.

Does SmartThings have any plans on garage control? or a way to bridge/connect w MyQ?

I have MyQ as well and I haven’t heard anything for future plans as of yet.

I have asked about the MyQ quite a few times. Unfortunately, it looks like Liftmaster/Chamberlain don’t have an open API for it which is what SmartThings needs to be able to talk to it. Don’t see them working together anytime soon, which sucks.

I found this regaring the myQ API, I wonder if this works.

The Linear GD00Z-1 uses the Z-Wave Secure Barrier Command Class and Notification v4 Command Class. Are these currently supported command class in the ST?

@psjtom @lostb0y - I just published a MyQ device type, you can grab it over here:

Saw the GD00Z at lowes yesterday. $99. Was tempted, but until I can get confirmation that it works with ST I’m going to hold off.

It is a nice unit. However, I don’t like that it uses a button battery in the tilt sensor. I’m tired of managing batteries let alone the different styles that can’t use rechargables. Wish they had an option for a wired sensor.

Beck - Its usually pretty easy to hack the battery sensors to take a low voltage adaptor instead. I have a bunch of posts on it in the Vera forums. I have a bunch of moisture and motion sensors hooked up through the leads in a pre-existing security system, which go down to a battery-backed adaptor.


(Kristopher Kubicki) #10

PS: I ordered one of the GD00Z-1. I’ll create a device if necessary.


(Beckwith) #11

Good suggestion. I have another application where I can use this technique.

However, in this case I would have to use something like this to avoid batteries because the tilt sensor attaches to the door:

However, the GD00Z doesn’t support an alternative sensor as far as I can tell.

I’ll find out soon - I just opened the box

This will be fun. Here is what it looked like to include the device:

It shows up as a “Z-wave Device” with an On and Off button. I have not confirmed if On/Off actually power the leads yet.

Beck you are right about the tilt sensor battery being annoying. On my Vera, I used a magnetic sensor for closed and another for open – I could power both from the other side of the track. That gave me more input on the door status as well.

With this thing it looks like I could do something similar, by putting a high powered magnet on the other side of it to force the switch into an open state when the door is up.

However, since it looks like these guys (Linear) caught a C+D, I’m returning it to Lowes. Not worth the effort on a dead end device

I wouldn’t be too concerned with a C&D. those patents look awfully broad. I’m sure a company like Lowes will defend the product.


(Andrew Urman) #17

We have plans to integrate it. I have the device in the lab. Whats holding us back right now is we are missing a Z-Wave Movable Barrier Command Class. It is a specialized message that adds security onto it. We need to get that added before we can integrate it.

The lame support answer I can give for a timeline is, we have so many things that are high priority and since this will take a platform dev, it kinds pushes it out to a month or 2 timeline.


(Kristopher Kubicki) #18

I offered to write the class, but it does not look like they will give me shell access to the machine anymore.


(Steve B) #19

@urman has there been any progress on the implementation of the z-wave Barrier Operator Command Class? Itching to get the GDC integrated into ST. I have a first cut of a device type, just need that pesky command class.


(Andrew Urman) #20

It’s stuck in Staging environment right now and is slated to go out on the next production push, which is typically done on Thursdays if all tests go well.
