An operator like no other.


The SOMMER pro+ combines our most advanced garage door control unit with the flexibility of a separate control unit housing. There are three alternatives for separate installation of the housing (front, rear or on the ceiling) so that existing sockets can be used and you can enjoy the highest level of customised convenience. This is how our operator becomes your operator.

Plug and Play

The modular system structure makes it possible to expand the SOMMER pro+ with countless accessories. All accessories are easy to install since sockets are colour-coded and exactly labelled.


Locking magnet which mechanically blocks the motor in any position up to an attack force of 300 kg, thereby improving the existing break-in protection.


For recording temperature and air humidity in the garage. The carriage automatically opens the door a bit if necessary, ensuring perfect circulation. When the optimal value has been achieved, the door is closed, reducing the risk of mould formation.


Used to expand the memory to 450 hand-held transmitter commands. During service, saved data can be easily adopted for a new carriage.

Lumi pro+

Additional LED lighting for the roof control. It is switched in parallel with the lighting in the carriages and can be easily switched on and off using the light function by means of a hand-held sensor.


Two functions in one product: If a break-in attempt is detected by the Hall sensor in the engine, the alarm buzzer gives out a loud signal. The warning buzzer, on the other hand, outputs an acoustic signal during the closing process.


Gives optical assistance for perfectly positioning a vehicle in the garage. The laser is active during the opening process and the set light burning time.


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.
