Monitor and Control Your Garage Door with Insteon
If you can't easily check if your garage door was left open from inside your home, this solution will enable you to see the door status from a convenient place and close or open the door remotely. If you already have Insteon installed in your home all you may have to do is add the I/O Linc - Garage Door Kit pictured below.
This kit takes advantage of the bi-directional capability of I/O Linc, allowing it to sense the "open/close" status of your garage door and to operate the contact closure output when an Insteon command is received to open/close the garage door.
Installing this kit involves connecting a magnetic sensor to the input terminals on the I/O Linc, and connecting the relay output of the I/O Linc to the garage door control terminals on the back of the ceiling mounted unit.
If you don't already have an INSTEON wireless network in your home, you'll need to add an Access Point which functions as wireless RF signal receiver/transmitter. If the electrical circuit in your garage is on a different phase, you'll want to purchase a second Access Point to bridge the phases of your electrical service to ensure a reliable Insteon network throughout your home.
With INSTEON, you can link a button on a 6 or 8-button KeypadLinc (shown at right) 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 RemoteLinc. Alternatively, you can turn on any light in the house when the garage door is open to indicate an alert.
If you would like to schedule and control your INSTEON devices from your iPhone or iPad, web-enabled Android cell-phone, or PC the INSTEON Hub Controller shown at left enables control of your Insteon devices at home or from anywhere in the world where Internet access is available. A free iOS App is available from iTunes, as is a free Android App from the Android Marketplace.
