Add Linear's Z-Wave controller to your current garage door opener to make it smarter. Linear

We've got a Linear Z-Wave Garage Door Controller that lets you remotely operate and monitor virtually any sectional garage door from up to 100 feet away via a Z-Wave-enabled network hub. And what do you know? We have one of those for you, too.

The Nexia Home Intelligence bridge connects to your router to let you manage all your Z-Wave-enabled smart products -- locks, lights, thermostats and so on -- via smartphone, tablet or computer (read Ry Crist's CNET review of the Nexia Intelligence bridge here ). A subscription to Nexia's home-control services, which let you manage your home through an online account and mobile apps, goes for $9.99 a month. Nexia's tossing in one year for free.

This bundle would normally run you approximately $390, but this is your chance to get all this home smartness delivered to your doorstep for free. How? Our makers of rules have handed down a few, so please read carefully.
