Plug and Play

The modular construction system allows you to upgrade your SOMMER base+ with a versatile collection of accessories. All accessories can be easily installed in the appropriate sockets, which are colored and labled.


— optional —

Magnetic locking, that locks the engine in every position for attacking forces of up to 300 kg.  The lock is blocking mechanically and improves the existing burglary protection.


— optional —

For measuring temperature and humidity of the garage. The carriage will automatically open the door as much as it is needed and provides perfect air circulation. Once the ideal value is reached, the door will be closed again and the risk of molding decreases.


— optional —

The Memo provides additional memory extension for up to 450 radio commands. If needed, saved data can be transferred to a new carriage.

Lumi base+

— soon available —

Additional LED-lighting for the ceiling control. The additional lighting will be connected in parallel to the lighting of the carriage and can be switched on and off via radio control.

Alarm buzzer / warn buzzer

— soon available —

The buzzer offers two options alternatively in one product: If the sound sensor, which is integrated in the motor carriage, detects a burglary attempt the alarm buzzer plays a loud warning sound. The warn buzzer however makes a sound while closing. 

Park position laser

— soon available —

The park position laser gives you an optical assistance to park your vehicle in the garage perfectly. The laser is active while the door is opening and stays active as long as defined in the duration settings.
