How does my ADT app know when my garage door is left open? Introducing the magnificent Z-Wave Garage Door Controller. This little black box is about the size of the original Nintendo Gameboy and is the liaison between your mobile app and the garage door Controller. The Z-Wave controller should be located next to the existing door opener and connects to your ADT-Pulse system.The Controller wires to the garage door opener’s pushbutton terminals, receives door status from the tilt sensor and communicates with the ADT Pulse system. The battery powered Tilt Sensor monitors the position of the door and then reports the status of the door to the Controller.

In order to activate the Z-wave Controller you will need an electric outlet, garage door opener and an adapter. This controller is simple to install and can be done by yourself in less than 10 minutes. Let your My Utilities agent know if you have any issues and we will be sure to assist you.
