Setup & Installation

Garadget for Control4 takes about 10-20 minutes to setup and consists of following steps:

  1. Connect Garadget to local network:
    1. Power up prior installation using USB connector in the back of the unit.
    2. Confirm that indication on Garadget is 4 LEDs blinking every second. If indication is different then press and hold button labeled “M” to revert to the setup mode.
    3. Connect your phone tablet or computer to a WiFi hotspot Garadget-XXXXXX
    4. Navigate the web browser on the same device to http://192.168.0.1/
    5. Submit the WiFi connection credentials using the configuration web form. Other settings can be left at defaults at this time.
    6. Confirm that indication on Garadget changed to 2 LEDs turned on and one blinking confirming a successful WiFi connection.
  2. Add Garadget to Control4 system:
    1. Find new Garadget entry in “discovery” panel and add it to the project by double clicking “Motorization/Softcomplex” entry.
    2. Confirm that indication on Garadget changed to just one LED occasionally softly lighting up.
    3. Adjust properties as needed (optional).
    4. Establish keypad connections and other logic (optional).
    5. Change the garage controller visibility in navigator (Room->Navigator->Security->Modify).
    6. Refresh navigators (File->Refresh Navigators).
  3. Install controller in the garage:
    1. Attach controller to a clean dry surface on the opener’s enclosure in direct line of sight of the top panel of the garage door using the included mount.
    2. Adjust the alignment so the laser points at the top panel of the closed garage door and affix the reflective tag so the laser hits its center.
    3. Connect the included wiring between the Garadget’s terminal labeled G and try contact terminals of the garage door opener. Polarity of this connection is not important. Adapter will be required for Security+ 2.0 systems.
    4. Using the mobile app or Composer confirm that the correct door status reported and door control working.

Addendum: Changes since the video video was recorded:

  • The LED indication for connected status changed from all lights pulsing twice to just one led softly lighting
  • The driver is now certified so it should automatically match the discovered device without the need to add/update from download.
