An operator like no other.

It's yours.

The SOMMER pro+ brings together our most advanced garage door control technology with the flexibility of a separate control unit housing. There are three different options for mounting the housing separately (front, rear or on the ceiling), meaning that you can take advantage of your existing power outlets and choose a custom location for maximum convenience – turning our operator into your very own unit.

Plug and Play

Thanks to its modular system design, you can expand the SOMMER pro+ with a host of different accessories. Slots are color-coded and also clearly labelled for incredibly easy installation of all accessory parts.


Locking magnet mechanically blocks the motor in any position up to an attack force of 300 kg (660 lbs) to enhance existing break-in protection.


Senses the temperature and air humidity in your garage. If necessary, the carriage automatically opens the door a slight distance to maintain ideal air circulation. Once the optimal value has been reached, the door is closed, reducing the risk of mold formation.


Used to expand available memory to 450 hand-held transmitter commands. During service work, saved data can easily be transferred to a new carriage.

Lumi pro+

Additional LED lighting for the roof control. Switched in parallel with the lighting in the carriage, this feature can be easily turned on and off from a hand-held transmitter using the light function.


Two different functions in one product: If the Hall sensor in the motor detects a break-in attempt, the alarm buzzer emits a loud signal as an alert. The warning buzzer, on the other hand, sounds an audible signal during the closing process.


Provides visual assistance to help you perfectly position vehicles in your garage. The laser is active during the opening process and the set duration of the light.


Additional relay for additional switching of a garage or courtyard light.


Uses a passive infrared sensor to detect the invisible thermal radiation of moving bodies (humans/animals, etc.) and reacts to them. The operator lighting (additional lighting/relay) switches on automatically for safe movement when the garage is entered.


Assumes the power supply of the operator for > 5 door cycles in the event of a power failure.


Output OC

Allows the connection of two corded pulse buttons for control of the door and one external lighting unit. The operating mode “Defined opening” and “Defined closing” is optional.



Transfers the door status (open/closed) to Smart Home systems. Optionally, a further external lighting unit can be operated.



For easier and more convenient installation of the tension springs on sectional doors. It is no longer necessary to lift the door yourself, making installation of the door even easier and quicker.

The LIFTer is only available for specialist dealers.
