QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Does it work with Gliderol GTS Optima + (direct connection no wall button present) Thank you
The Gliderol GTS should work fine with the Aeotec to control door open/close.
If you check the install guide, on page 5 it shows you the wiring diagram for a single external switch. This is how you'd connect the Aeotec.
does this work with Samsung Smartthings Hub just being launched onto the Australian market? (currently via RACV)
As far as I know, SmartThings doesn't have native support for the Garage Door Controller. However, one of the SmartThings community has written a custom device type to make it work. Details can be found on Aeotec's Support Site here.
Does this controller use a normally open voltage free switch to allow it to connect directly to spare hard-wired external button press terminals on the motor PCB?
Yes, that's correct. The Aeotec controller simply closes a relay to short either the existing external switch circuit or the external button terminals on the motor. It doesn't supply voltage through the relay.
Would this work with Google Home? Do I need a thing else for it to work with it.?
Google Home doesn't have built-in Z-wave, so you'd need a Z-wave hub that has integration with Google Home.
Vera doesn't have native support yet, but there are 3rd party Vera plugins that make it work (for the more tech savvy home automator). One of our customers wrote an article about it.
