- Press “Add” when your device appears and name your device.
Step Three - Test Garager in your Garage
Ok, your device is now set up on your network! Great job! Now it’s time to get it set up in your garage. Before you begin the physical installation, please ensure you’re able to properly use your Garager device while it is in you garage. To do this, please:
- Please plug in the Garager device in your garage,
- Close your garage,
- Go inside your house,
- Test to see if you can view the live video from your Garager application.
If you can see the live video stream, please proceed to the next section and if not, please use a WiFi ranger extender to add WiFi connectivity to your garage.
Step Four - Before Physical Installation
What you will need:
- Small flathead screwdriver,
- A diagram of your garage door motor,
- Bundled wiring that came with Garager device.
Step Five - Physical Installation
- Prepare the wires that came in packaging:
- Pull 5 inches of wires apart on both sides (diagram),
- Remove ½ inch of plastic from the end of each wire,
- Attach the two ends of one side of the wire to the back of Garager device (see diagram),
- Mount Garager device magnetically to the pre-existing garage motor using Garager’s magnetic base or use mounting equipment that came in your packaging,
- Identify which wires correspond to open and close for your garage door on your garage motor,
- Splice the opposite side of Garager’s two wires into the two open and close slots on your garage motor that were identified in the previous step (see diagram),
- Make sure that the wire makes a good connection on both sides.
Step Six - Testing Garager
- Make sure you have an alternative method of opening and closing your Garage on hand before starting (remote clicker),
- Step outside your garage and open the Danale application to test the open and close button for your garage door opener.
- If all goes well, then congratulations. If not, please see our troubleshooting guide.
