Universal Z-Wave Garage Door Control Switch 

  The Telguard GDC1 Universal Z-Wave Garage Door Control Switch is compatible with any automatic garage door opener connected to a sectional garage door with all entrapment protections in place.

Use the GDC1 with your home automation system to receive notifications if the garage door has been opened when it shouldn’t be, ensure the garage door is closed at a specific time every night or even reclosed after a fixed amount of time every morning.  If your Z-Wave gateway has a mobile app, you can remotely control or monitor the garage door from anywhere.    

Safety and Peace of Mind

Adhering to the stringent UL safety guidelines established for the unattended operation of garage doors, the GDC1 is the safe way to remotely open or close a garage door.

Because you never know which way a garage door will move, the Telguard GDC1 delivers peace of mind by attempting to close the garage door a second time if the first attempt is unsuccessful.

GDC1 Features, Tips and Tricks:



Truly Universal 

The GDC1 is based off one of the fundamental command classes in Z-Wave home automation, the binary switch (i.e. light switch). This means that the GDC1 will seamlessly integrate with nearly any Z-Wave based system ever sold that supports light switches. Turn the GDC1 "off" to close the garage door and "on" to open it without sacrificing functionality or safety.

The Telguard GDC1:

  • Is compatible with any Z-Wave controller supporting the binary switch command class.  
  • Works best with Telguard HomeControl and with other interactive platforms including: Icontrol Networks, 2GIG, DSC, and many others.
  • Meets UL 325 safety guidelines for unattended operation:
    • Provides five seconds of audible and visual warnings prior to remote movement.
    • Has the ability to cancel movement locally during the warning period.
    • Suspends unattended operation after two consecutive failed closed attempts.
