My Garage door opener is listed as “not compatible” It has a yellow learn button.
So I made a simple modification to make it compatible.
The two wires that return to the opener won’t activate the opener when shorted together, however the circuit board for the wall mounted door controller has a push button for opening and closing the door.
I added two wires across the push button on the board and connected them to the Wyze garage door controller. Pictures of the modification attached.
I see… I will have to dig into my old opener now to see how it operates. I thought the two wires from the push button to the motor unit were also open until pushed, thus closing the circuit. Since this is how simple doorbell style buttons work, couldn’t the GDC pigtails just be piggybacked into the same pushbutton wire inserts?
@SlabSlayer , Maybe I am not being clear, The circuit board pictured is part of a wall mount assembly you put in your garage, it comes with the opener. On it it has another learn button and a large plastic button to open your door. The plastic button depresses the tiny board mounted switch. All I have done is to add wires to the side of the board mounted push button switch and run them to the Wyze Garage door controller.
Ah yes. I see. My wall button has no such learn function associated with it. I think it may be an aftermarket replacement from the previous owners as the original ancient wallbox controller board was disconnected but left on the wall behind a shelf. I am going to have to do some experimenting. Now that I know the GDC produces a closed circuit on activation, I can work with that!
