Step 1 – Unboxing
Open the box and remove the Remootio device. The wires, double-sided adhesives and the sensor can be found under the removable paper insert.
Step 2 – Read the instruction manual carefully and follow the instructions
The printed instruction manual can be found on the back side of the paper insert.
Step 3 – Remove the plastic cover
Use a cross head screwdriver to remove the screw from the Remootio unit and remove the plastic cover.
Step 4 – Connect the control output of the Remootio unit to the appropriate input terminals of your gate or garage door.
Based on the type of required control input, there are two types of gates and garage doors:
- A single signal (impulse) can open, stop and close the gate or garage door
- Two separate signals (impulses) needed:
- One signal for opening
- and another signal for closing.
Single input type:
Different manufacturers name their control inputs differently. The most common terms are as follows:
“CYC”, “IMPULSE”, “IMP”, “KBUTT”, “OPERATE”, “OSC”, “PB”, “PP”, “SBS”, “SS”, “START”, “STRT”, “SW”, “TRG”, “WALL BUTTON”, “WALL CONTROL”.
Connect Remootio’s control output to the appropriate input terminal of your garage door / gate control board.
Please visit https://www.remootio.com/pages/compatibility and enter the make and model of your gate or garage door to search for the correct wiring diagram.
Dual input type (separate input for opening and closing):
Connect Remootio’s output #1 to the “open” input terminal of your gate or garage door control unit and connect Remootio’s output #2 to the “close” input terminal of your gate or garage door control unit.
Step 5 – Sensor installation
Connect the sensor to terminal 4 of the Remootio 2 unit and use the included adhesives to mount the wireless part of the sensor on the moving part of the gate or garage door in such a way that it is not further than 30mm from the wired part of the sensor when the gate or garage door is closed.
