How Does it Work?
Smart Life Network Wi-Fi controller is a simple to use App based system that allows control of your garage door from your smart device and provides status updates for your garage door. The system requires a 2-wire connection into the existing control panel by using the provided 5m cable. A plug-in low voltage power adapter is also provided, making the system safe to install and use. A Wi-Fi or 4G signal is necessary to operate your smart device as a controller, as the controller runs through the home Wi-fi connection, a good signal inside your garage would be required.
Your Wi-Fi controller receives commands from your smart device, triggering open and close signals or can test the position of the door. A battery-powered sensor and magnet located at the bottom of the door are used to determine door position. Any attempt to break in by raising the door generates a notification to your phone, another feature that will heighten your security.
The garage door controller should be set to open and close impulse mode and fitted with a safety edge or similar comprehensive presence detection. The app is free to use, and the system can connect to any motor or control panel that has a dynamic switch connection (two wires for cyclic control- Open-stop-close-stop-open etc).
