Questions & Answers

What kind of GogoGate sensor is included? Wired or wireless?

Looking at the GogoGate website, there is both a wireless and a wired sensor option. Which one does this come with?
Asked by: bb
Wireless. Just stick it vertically to the garage door so it knows if the garage door is in closed or opened position.

In one of the pictures it shows the garage door open from the inside. My question is does it have a camera to show you

When it's opened or closed.
Asked by: Bignuke
Camera is not included. U need to buy one that is approved by gogogate and probably have to pay yearly fee.
Answered by: Diy

Does this unit have the ability to have battery backup?

Asked by: Dobe
No and that's one of the reasons i chose this. Backup battery usually only lasts for a little more than a year before you need to purchase new one. Of course unless it doesnt cost extra.

3/4 HP Garage Door Opener with Smartphone Controller is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have two 8' x 9' garage doors that used Sears openers (made by Chamberlain, I think) for a coup... I have two 8' x 9' garage doors that used Sears openers (made by Chamberlain, I think) for a couple of decades. Those openers had composite couplings and sleeves that wore out over time and were a pain to replace. They had two screw adjustments for force and two screw adjustments for open and close distances that did not want to hold their settings. This new unit does away with those frustrating adjustments. There are two stops that you set in the track to determine how high and low the door will open. The unit teaches itself the amount of open and close force that is needed. No more finicky fiddling with four screws to get the settings right. As near as I can tell there is only one moving part - a gear that is made out of metal, so parts replacement should be a thing of the past. The new unit is much quieter than the one I replaced, and there is less bouncing of the door rails. The doors are side by side, so I was able to compare the opening and closing speeds, and the new unit is about four seconds slower, an insignificant difference as far as I'm concerned. As soon as one of the parts breaks in my other old unit I intend to replace it with another Direct Drive. The unit has been operating a few weeks now without problems. Notice this photo shows our unit mounted to a concrete roof that is 10' above the floor. The garage door is 8" high and all the necessary hardware was included for a door of that height - no extension was required.

We needed to make changes after the first trial. The operation of the opener was great (super quiet). The setup of wifi control was difficult (poor online instruction). We've not got that working yet.

When we sit inside our car in the garage, we can't hear the door opening. The opener itself is basically silent: the only noise is the door moving and the hinges bending. It's great for our sleepy baby!

You can’t go wrong. It is slower than the other door lifts but a small scarifice for thr noise reduction. The wifi controller is fantastic. Open the app on my phone and open the door.

This opener has worked fine for 3 years, but now it is not working and there is absolutely no way to get in contact with Sommer for support. No one is answering the phone no matter what department you try and email is answered by auto-responder telling you to call to trouble shoot the problem over the phone... except no one is answering the phone. I am not even able to find parts if I even figure out what is the problem. VERY FRUSTRATED. Really too bad as I really like the product. A competitor needs to step up to the plate, they could make a killing. I really don't want to go back to a screw drive, chain drive, or belt drive opener.

Plan on about 4 hours. Written instructions are not as helpful, especially for programming the remotes and keypad. It is a littler slower than my previous openers. The longest part of the installation is routing the sensor and opener control wires. It is easier with a tall stepladder and a helper. The "C" brackets do NOT fit the previous 90 degree braces. I ended up removing the old supports and installing the supplied straps to support the opener. Be sure to buy some extra 1/8 inch low voltage wire staples because they did not include enough. My main complaint is you CANNOT leave on the light more than 90 seconds. There is no adjustment or override available (I contacted customer service). My previous 2 openers were able to use the lights independently.
