How to connect a smart implant to a garage door.


Recommended Posts


I have a problem because I don't quite know how to connect to a garage door. If someone could write me which cable (color) in which number I should screw I would be grateful. This white-blue and blue cable go to my gate opener button. I am sending a video -.

O, Dio mio ... Oh my God...
It's always round and round. Just search a little on the forum if you don't understand it from the manual - page 14, section "4.9: Connection with gate opener".

Many users do not speak Polish, and you are in the English section. How about narrating the video in English?
How about writing the exact type of gate drive?


Ok, I will think that on the motor terminal 12 = -24VDC, terminal 13 = +24VDC.
You can proceed in two ways:
A) you leave the existing button connected to the motor and connect the output from the Smart Implant (SI) in parallel.
B) disconnect the button from the motor and connect it to the SI input, connect the SI output to the motor instead of the original button.

I recommend option B. This gives you a multi-functional button (you can associate other double-click/hold actions, for example to control the gate or lights or other actions using scenes).

Recording a button press in the HC history is just a bonus.


Procedure for B:
1) Disconnect the wires from the existing button
2) The connection will be like this:
Motor 12 --- SI terminal GND (blue)
Motor 13 --- SI terminal P (red)
Motor 16 --- SI OUT1 terminal 1
Motor 17 --- SI OUT1 terminal 2
Wire from button white-blue --- SI IN1 (yellow)
Wire from button blue --- SI terminal GND (blue)

Change values of parameters:
For connected to IN1 and OUT1:
Change parameter 20 to 2 (monostable button)
Change parameter 156 to 1 (0.1s)

  • Thank you very much!

    It is working properly.

    The only thing I have a problem because my HC3- sees smart implat the same as for example wall plug switch (red and green switch). I tried to change it as a garage door. This is not a big problem, but in the Yubii app I would prefer to have this device visible as a garage door and not as another device.

    @Simon01 If you managed to change the icon on the PC and nothing happened in the Yubii application, it is usually enough to log out of the application (not just close it) and log in again.

    If that doesn't work, try logging out and logging in from the app with a local respect to HC3.

    The icon image will be downloaded. After that, you can log in externally via Fibaro as standard.

    Vestsina thus only needs to be granted once.


    Sometimes it's bad, especially with user-uploaded icons.

  • Thank you. 

    However, that's not quite what I had in mind. The point is that in the Yubi app I have categories e.g. scenes, devices, rooms, sensors, lights, blinds, gates, heating, etc.

    And now what I wanted to change is the catagory e.g. for my door/window sensor - this device shows if my garage door is open or closed - and it does it well. But this device in the Yubii app is in the sensors category, and I would like it to be in the gate category.
