Enhance the versatility of your INSTEON
network using I/O Linc – INSTEON Garage Door Control & Status Kit to let you know if you accidentally left the garage door open and remotely close it if necessary. This kit takes advantage of the bi-directional capability of I/O Linc, allowing it to send
a command that indicates the status of your garage door and to receive
a command that operates the garage door. Using INSTEON automation, you can link a button on a KeypadLinc
as a status light to indicate whether or not your garage door is open and remotely open or close the garage door from other areas of your property using that button or another button on a KeypadLinc, SwitchLinc
or Mini Remote
:You should only remotely close a garage door when you can be sure it is safe. Use of safety beam devices can further increase the safety of remote garage door control and are usually required by law. Smarthome is not responsible for any damage from proper or improper functioning of the device(s).
Ensure that it is safe to close your garage door by adding an IP Camera to your network. We recommend the INSTEON Wireless IP Camera
, sold separately, which also provides you with 24/7 surveillance of your vehicles.How It Works
The included garage door sensor mounts to the garage door and is wired directly to I/O Linc’s sensor input. When the garage door is open, the garage door sensor triggers I/O Linc to send a signal that will turn on an INSTEON controlled light and/or report its status, for example, to KeypadLinc status LED’s or even receive a text/email when using the INSTEON Hub
(sold separately). Additionally, I/O Linc’s output relay wires to your garage door motor just like your existing button, allowing you to remotely operate your garage.Please Note:
For garage door openers with an LCD screen, you will have to set the momentary duration to 0.5 seconds.
