Overview

The SOMMER garage door opener is made in Germany and is the only opener of its kind offering Europe's leading innovative technology.

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.

Control unit can be removed without removing motor. German engineering. Installation no more difficult than most. One minor flaw: small remotes have tiny buttons, not easy to press with bare fingers, let alone gloves.

The first one is several years old now and has worked well. It is easy to install. I purchased it because of the lifetime warranty of the product. This opener is very very quiet when opening and closing. I would definitely buy another one and recommend it.

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.

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!

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.

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.
