Secure garage door.

Your garage door is an entry to your home and to your valuables. It needs to be secured. While some garage door motors are easily overridden or wirelessly hacked, Aeotec’s Garage Door Controller has been hardened to prevent such security issues.

128 bit encryption.
Powered by Aeotec’s Gen5 technology, Garage Door Controller uses encrypted wireless signals to communicate with a Z-Wave network. Gen5 uses the same level of encryption as banks; AES 128-bit.

Z-Wave network.
The wireless technology used defines how susceptible a device is to attack. Garage Door Controller uses Z-Wave Plus, and avoids WiFi and open communication frequencies commonly used by criminals.

Safe garage door.

Garage Door Controller doesn’t just keep your garage safe from intruders, it keeps your loved ones and property safe from the garage dooritself. Garage Door Controller meets all the regulations of UL325, the safety standard that defines how professional garage door motors should operate. With its own safety features and warning systems built in, Garage Door Controller isn’t just compliant with UL325’s stringent requirements – it also never overrides the basic safety functions that your door already offers.

Visual warnings.
Garage Door Controller indicates when your garage door is about to open or close with visual warnings. Inbuilt within its push button are 8 different LEDs that’ll flash for X seconds before your garage door or gate moves.

Audio warnings.
In the event that the visual warnings are missed or can’t be seen, Garage Door Controller also offers a speaker system rated to 105dB. Preloaded with tones, and with the ability to upload your own MP3s, Garage Door Controller will also sound for X seconds before your garage door or gate moves.
