  • Check the Learn Button

    Works with all non-Chamberlain brands (including Genie, Linear, Overhead Door) and Chamberlain/LiftMaster brands with green, gray, white, yellow (square) 🟨 learn button.

    Got a Chamberlain/LiftMaster garage door opener with yellow, red, orange, blue, purple, or brown learn button, including those with myQ built-in? Get the GDO blaQ instead.

  • Check the Wall Button

    Konnected’s Garage Door Opener works with most garage doors with a wired push-button mounted on the wall, a simple “dry-contact” switch.

  • Measure the Garage's Height

    The optical laser sensor works most reliably when the ceiling is less than ~5-6 feet from the rolled-up garage door. In typical homes with a standard 7ft garage door and ~8-13ft ceilings, this is no problem. We suggest adding a wired sensor to ensure accuracy if your garage ceiling exceeds those numbers.

Upgradable to Matter*

Matter is the emerging smart home standard that provides secure and local integration with all big-name smart home platforms, including Apple HomeKit, Google Home, Amazon Alexa, Samsung SmartThings, Home Assistant, Hubitat, and Homey Pro. Currently, the Matter specification does not support garage door opener device types, but when it does, Konnected is committed to supporting this game-changing standard on all of our GDOv2 models.

Note: Upgrading to Matter will require re-flashing the device firmware with a computer and USB cable.

*Konnected’s Garage Door Opener is not (yet) Matter certified. Join our early-access program to stay up-to-date with development.

Made for ESPHome

This product ships with ESPHome-based firmware pre-loaded for local, secure, and open-source integration with Home Assistant and Hubitat.

Konnected is committed to making this powerful DIY smart home firmware easy and accessible for all, which is why we’ve created a cloud connector for ESPHome to integrate with SmartThings and Alexa.

Powerful, customizable, and plug-and play smart home integration with your choice of smart home platform.

Built on Open Source

Konnected’s new GDO is built on entirely open source software, made with high-quality genuine components, and assembled with love in the USA. We designed it with an emphasis on choice, privacy, and local control – because we believe that the technology that you bring in your home is yours to own. The GDOv2’s firmware configuration is published here on GitHub and is built upon these primary open-source libraries:

Device Details

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if my garage door opener is compatible?

Konnected's GDO White works with garage door openers that are triggered to open or close by a simple push button or dry-contact closure. This includes most garage door openers except those with a yellow learn button. Read more.

What if my garage door opener has a yellow learn button or has myQ built-in?

Check out our new GDO blaQ that is specifically designed for yellow-button Security+ 2.0 openers.

Will my existing garage door remotes (car, wall, and outside keypad) still work?

Yes, of course, they will still work. Konnected only makes your garage smarter; it doesn't take away any existing features.

Noticing decreased range of your wireless remotes?

What if I have more than one garage door?

Konnected's GDO monitors and controls a single garage door opener. You'll need one Konnected Smart Garage Door Opener product per garage door.

Is there an audible and visual warning before closing the garage door?

Yes, for safety, the GDO gives you visual (blinking) and audible (beeping) warnings for ~5 seconds before it triggers the garage door to close. 

NEW in 2024: The GDOv2 has a multi-tonal sounder that can more pleasant and customizable warning tunes.

Does it meet U.S. safety regulations?

Yes, the GDOv2-S was designed to meet the U.S. safety regulations in 16 CFR § 1211.14 for the unattended operation of a residential garage door opener.

The device should only be used with a sectional garage door. Do not use with one-piece or swinging doors.

Should I get a wired sensor for my Smart Garage Door Opener?

There are three main reasons to add an optional heavy-duty wired sensor to your Konnected Garage Door Opener: 

  • your garage's ceiling is very high (more than 8-10 ft)
  • you want an extra layer of accuracy in case the optical sensor gets obstructed (e.g., by dust or spider web)
  • you trust wired sensors more than any other sensors

How is it powered?

It's powered by a 12V power adapter (included) which plugs into a standard power outlet. Usually, the garage door opener receives power from a power outlet on the garage ceiling. No batteries required.

Are there monthly fees?

There are no ongoing fees to use Konnected's Garage Door Opener. In the future, we may introduce optional premium features for a fee.

Does it work with a gate opener?

In many cases, yes! If the gate opener is triggered by a push-button or dry-contact relay, then yes it should work. However, you will likely not be able to use the built-in optical sensor to detect the open/closed status. Instead, you can use a wired sensor to monitor the state of the gate.

The Konnected GDO should be installed in a weather-protected environment.

What smart home platforms or apps does it work with?

Konnected's GDO works with Home Assistant and Hubitat via a 100% local integration using the ESPHome native API.

It also works with SmartThings and Alexa via a connection to Konnected's free Konnected Cloud service.

Control4 driver is now available as a paid license as well.

When will Matter compatibility be ready?

We really don't know. At the present time, there is no a Matter specification for garage door openers. We're watching the Matter release schedule closely and are expecting to start testing a Matter compatible firmware as soon as the device specification is made available by the Matter working group.

You can join our Matter early-access program to stay informed of the progress.

Is there an API for the device?

Yes! Konnected's GDO family have a full-featured and local REST API, as well as the ESPHome Native API. See API Reference.
