Recommended Garage Door controler?

my lowes homelink opener is again not working. I have been messing with it for hours and it will NOT re-add to the network

I'm thinking of switching to zig-bee this time. I also had trouble adding a lock (seems anything with security is having issues and never has before)

any recommendations? my only option it to keep repeating this ever couple of months and i just don't have the time to mess with it anymore.

If you are into Zigbee, then a device by MHcozy has been found to be very functional:
If you are into Zwave, then Zooz has a very good product (which I personally use) , the Zen16:
Note: these are both for 2 door Garage Doors.

i can do both, but zig-bee just seem less hassel than z-wave lol slowly converting to zig-bee stuff lol

checking out both links, thank you much :slight_smile:

That tends to be correct.

If you use Zwave, I recommend the Fibaro Smart Implant. It’s so small and low power that you can Power it from your garage motor DC terminals.

It’ll control up to 2 doors individually with an open/close sensor on each door.

Here’s mine:

This one is zwave and can control 2 doors separately and have an open/close sensor for each of them.

I use 2 of them to control and monitor both of my garage doors. Could have used just one of them but I wanted to monitor both fully closed and fully open states so I have 2 sensors on each of them.


I use the ZEN as well. It's a great device. Easy to set up, and extended my Wave network where I needed.

I purchased the Zigbee one

I have it installed with the relay working and one Door sensor

do i need a custom driver for this? or do i just have to rewrite all my rules to control it now?

I have the Zen16 on my 3 bay garage. It does have 3 relays, after all. The newer Zen17 only has 2 relays, but they seem heavier duty and do NO and NC.

I have been using the Zooz Zen 16 for over a year. I agree with others here that it works very well. Installation was easy. Zooz also has an app specifically for garage door operation that is excellent.

Zen17 for the win. It's great. And you can do 2 doors with just one of them. Also uses wired contact sensors so no messing with end devices.

Also using the Zen…has been 100% reliable.
