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?

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
No. But you can add a camera. The camera is not included. Without it you get default picture of an open or closed door.

3/4 HP Garage Door Opener with Smartphone Controller is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 31.

Did have to run ac wiring, for there was none other than exiting shop light, controlled with wall switch. The smart phone control works well. Can open form anywhere with the gogogate app. Runs very smooth and quiet.

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.

I take 1 star off for the way they package it. For those who choose this model (02) over the non-wifi model (04), you will the box shows 04 model, which is almost a hundred dollars less. Dont be concerned, somewhere on the box you will see a stick on label saying something like "Gogogate 2 included". I learned that the hardway and the manufacture got 2 unnecessary returns. The original box was inside another box and when i opened the first box, all i saw was a cheaper model number (04). Both HD staff and i assumed they had shifted the wrong item and reordered. They should have used a different box with correct model number.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The Direct Drive garage door opener works great! It is SUPER quiet. but DON'T BUY THE MODEL WITH... The Direct Drive garage door opener works great! It is SUPER quiet. but DON'T BUY THE MODEL WITH THE SMART PHONE CONTROLLER. The Gogogate controller is a piece of crap. You can buy it separately elsewhere if you really want that device. At least read the bad app store reviews on the Gogogate 2 app before buying. Buy the model without the smartphone controller. If you want a smartphone controller, there are many options out there to add one later. I thought spending a little extra now to get the smartphone controller with it was a good idea. Now I have a great garage door opener with a smartphone controller that is totally useless. Don't be like me. Be warned about LED Bulbs. I put 100W (equivalent) LED bulbs in the opener. Something about the LED bulbs interfered with the signal range. Literally, the remote didn't work while standing immediately outside the garage door. I contacted Sommer and they were responsive, they mentioned the issue with LED bulbs, and also sent me an antennae. I swapped 100W to 60W LED and installed the antennae. Now the range is what I had expected. Lastly, be warned about remote compatibility. My previous aftermarket keypad and aftermarket remotes no longer worked. The opener doesn't learn the signals. I think this opener works on a frequency not used by other openers. You have to use their remotes and their keypad. It did work with the Homelink opener built in to my car.
