Tech support at Linear says they are working on a garage door controller, and that it will have connections for a couple of contacts, and that's all they could say.

I had called Linear, trying to chase down the elusive Evolve PIR-100 which never materialized. Bill at Automated Outlet had told me that Linear purchased the rights to Evolve's Z-Wave stuff, but Linear doesn't show a PIR in their brochure, and tech support couldn't find any references in their system to the PIR.

The Linear GD00Z-1 "Garage Door Opener Remote Command Controller with Tilt Sensor" received FCC approval on February 24th, 2014. It has a momentary contact for use in parallel with your garage door's existing push-button switch.

From the documentation, it appears that this unit will be sold at Lowe's. The following excerpt from the user manual suggests that there is some intelligence built into the garage door controller, and that it communicates directly with the included tilt sensor, rather than having the tilt sensor be a separate Z-Wave device on the main network.

A wireless tilt sensor mounts on the garage door and reports the door’s position to the
Controller. When the Controller receives a command from the Iris hub, it will open or
close the garage door.

Anytime the garage door opener is activated remotely by the Controller, a warning
indicator flashes and a beeper sounds for five seconds before the door begins to move.
If, due to an obstruction or other cause, the door does not completely open or close
when it is activated remotely, the Controller will pause for 30 seconds. After the delay,
a second remote activation can be attempted. If the door does not complete its motion
on the second attempt, the Controller will suspend operation until the door is operated
locally with the opener’s pushbutton wall console.

The Controller is powered by a plug-in power supply. The Model TILT 345 tilt sensor
is powered by a 2032 lithium battery. If the tilt sensor battery is low, it will be reported
to the Iris hub by the Controller. A link button and status light are provided on the
Controller for adding or removing the device with the Iris hub.

There is also a built in warning light and beeper to indicate that the door is about to move:

The warning light will fl ash and the warning beeper will sound
fi ve seconds before the door opener is activated. STAY CLEAR
OF THE DOOR, AND DOOR OPENER. THEY ARE ABOUT TO
MOVE!

Edit: This article mentions that this is the first UL-compliant Z-Wave remote garage door opener.

Pepper One, a German Z-Wave certification house has an extensive online database of Z-Wave devices. Of particular interest is their thorough documentation of device configuration parameters, which is sometimes missing from the end-user documentation.

  • ZS5101-5 detects the vibrations made by an intruder trying to break a window or door, and also detect tamper situations, it will send Z-Wave signal when vibrations or tamper situations are detected. When the device is secure included into Z-Wave network, above the communication will be encrypted.

We're a commercial software developer, in beta testing with a couple of Z-Wave related products. 

Engen -- software server that supports the Z-Stick.  Written in Python, running on Windows, Linux, and OSX.  REST interface, HTML accessible.

OneRemote -- Android app that allows custom structure, buttons, and backgrounds.  SSDP search and connect.

It's on the JRiver forum on the board called "Engen -- JRiver Smart Theater".  Initial focus is on lighting.  The software is working, but still rough.  It will eventually be sold for $50 to $100 (no price has been set).

Your advice or comments will be very welcome.  Thanks.

Z-Uno is here ! It's the first (easy to use) developer board that allows to create a Z-Wave device, apparently without deep knowledge of Z-Wave protocol or programming
