Include Your Garage into Your Connected Home
Developed to perform two distinct functions, Aeotec Garage Door Controller lets you both monitor whether a garage door or gate is opened or closed, and it also allows you to control a motorized garage door or gate using its existing motor. One half of the Garage Door Controller is a magnetic contact that monitors whether the garage door is opened or closed. That magnetic contact, made of a hardened alloy to prevent damage, wires directly into the motor controller. The motor controller both retrofits with a garage door's existing motor and your Z-Wave network, allowing you to optionally control the garage door via Z-Wave.
Aeotec Garage Door Controller is a smart and wireless Garage Door Control system. You can control the garage door to open, close, or stop moving via wireless signal on your gateway client or phone application. You can also control it by using the external switch when your controller or mobile phone is not on hand.
Its 105dB speaker system will play alarm sounds and at the same time, the indicator of the Garage Door Controller's Alarm LED will turn on in which will let you know that the garage door will start to open or close.
The Garage Door Controller allows you to configure different alarm sounds to indicate the door's action. Each action alarm sound can be customized. To change or update new alarm sounds for the Garage Door Controller, connect the Garage Door Controller to your PC host with a USB cable and download your sound files to the flash memory (128 MB) of the Garage Door Controller.
You can also manually switch the alarm sound. To do this, short press the "Button -" or "Button +" button on the Garage Door Controller which will switch the alarm sound to the next sound. Press and hold the "Button -" or "Button +" to decrease or increase the volume.
The Garage Door Controller is also a security Z-Wave device and supports the Over The Air (OTA) feature for the product's firmware upgrade.
Garage Door Controller comes with everything you need to include your existing garage or gate controller into your connected-home. From the cables you need to connect it to a motor, to the USB cable you can use to optionally change its MP3 tones, Garage Door Controller is the complete package.
