Mac OS X 10.14 continues with a warning with .KEXT file extensions:

With the newest security updates on Mac OS X 10.14 Mojave (and previously with Mac OS X 10.13 High Sierra), our USB, Thunderbolt and FireWire interface drivers may run into issues mounting on the OS.  You may be prompted to grant the KEXT file permission to install in your operating system. Please read the following article to learn more about GateKeeper and KEXT files.

Installation Issues with Universal Control on High Sierra Mac OSX 10.13


Tech Tip when upgrading your install of OS X to a newer version of OS X:

We do recommend that when you do update your OS from a previous version, make sure you power down and / or unplug (especially Thunderbolt devices) all of your existing hardware from your system except of course keyboard / mouse and networking. Let the system update all preferences to the new OS version, then plug in and power on your gear and let the new system initialize a new set of preferences. If you're arriving at this article because you're having issues after the upgrade and want to know why, you may have to uninstall and reinstall drivers and/or applications to resolve any OS update issues.

This has been a norm with Apple OS updates since the early days of OS X. For future versions of OS X that come out as dot releases can create the same issue, download and install the combo update for the OS version you're installing for can also help to remedy the problem. 

An alternative would be to partition your storage drive and install new OS X, you'd have to reinstall your applications and your drivers, then you'll have the option of going back to the older version if needed and all your files are still accessible across partitions.
