Hi jwoodard33, thank you for your feedback! Have you tried using the terminal shorting method to confirm the compatibility?

My garage door openers do not have screw terminals for the control wires. They just stick into the connection block.

I’m currently using a competitor’s remote garage opener and going to switch to Wyze. I’m having the same scenario that my garage opener itself is not compatible by default.

However, I found a hack to the scenario but it requires some DIY skills. First, you need to buy a regular garage opener remote, then with some soldering, connect garage opener’s control wires to the remote, so that the wires will short the button on it. Problem solved.

There might be some pre-made remote mentioned in the previous step but I can’t find any online. If anyone has a similar problem you can try it, those regular remotes only costs like $10 each.

Chamberlain D2101, yellow learning button and shorting does not work.

Just confirming… were you able to get your Garage Door Controller working with your Overhead Door Odyssey 1000?

No I have two kinds of opener. This was a Lift Master with a purple learn button. I will try the overhead door tomorrow when I get home.

Liftmaster 8550W with yellow learning button cannot be shorted in the described manner.

I was 4 days from receiving my Garage controller when I was able to determine that, and was able to cancel my Amazon order in time.

I would dearly love to be able to use the same app to view cameras and open/close the garage within it.

Many of us that don’t have a GDO that allows us to short it, still can use the Wyze GDC. The way includes adding wires to the button inside a spare remote. Then test those two wires by shorting them to trip your remote. If that works for you, then you simply use the Wyze GDC wires and attach them to the remotes external wires. I think more detailed instructions and pictures are shown in this thread or another thread here as a “how to”

I have an old Genie GS850 garage door opener that requires the garage door button to be pressed once to open and twice to close the door. As it stands, the Wyze garage door controller can open the door but it cannot close it. This is because the app has a built-in 5 second delay when the close door button is pressed so the button can not be pressed twice in quick succession to close the door.
