A better way to integrate garage doors into Control4!
The Control4 Home Automation system can control nearly all aspects of a customer’s smart home. With the Garage Agent driver, customers can control garage doors and motorized gates with ease in Control4! Integrating garage doors intro Control4 is now a simple, streamlined process. This driver does not require a site visit for integration, making installation even easier!
Garage doors and motorized gates can be controlled with the press of a button via the Control4 platform or a customer’s smartphone. Dealers have the ability to program the driver to automatically send notifications when the garage door or gate has been left open or failed to close based on the customer’s preferences. New icons visually communicate the state of any garage door – ex: opening, open, closing, closed, etc. The driver even contains a variety of garage door types to best fit your customer’s home. Choose from a graphic-style garage, a lifelike home garage, a modern home garage, gates, etc.

No, this driver will give customers a better garage door experience directly from the security tab!
Do I need to add Garage Door Sensor hardware?
A garage door sensor hardware is required to communicate when the garage door is opened or closed.
What if I only want the garage door to close when I press the icon?
Choose the ‘single tap’ or ‘double tap’ action and select ‘only close’.
How do I disable the driver when people are renting my home?
You can either choose the ‘double tap’ action and select ‘Toggle Door Control’ or create an IF/THEN setting while programming the driver and select IF (insert scenario here), THEN ‘Disable Garage Control.’

Can you make different icons?
Sure! If you want to have a custom icon loaded in, please email: email@example.com. We can create custom icons that look like the customers’ specific garage door. For this, please send a picture of the garage door closed and open. Otherwise, please include a description of how you would like the icon to look. We can load it into the driver for you for a fee.
What if I have multiple doors at one home?
No problem! You will just need to buy a driver per door and set each up individually.
I love the Push Notification, but I want to make my own – how do I do this?
To turn off the automatic push notification, change the setting Use Push Notification to ‘off.’ Then use Composer Events and Actions for your specialized push notification.
What is the difference between the standard Garage Agent and the one with LiftMaster?
