hidey-ho iris joy from alarm grid and today we're going to talk about adding a lift master door or garage door controller to your koalas iq2 system now with the lift master garage doors the only ones that you'll be able to directly interface with your iq2 is an older model that works over z-wave the new lift master myq garage doors actually work through the internet and those you can interface with your system through alarm comm but you won't be able to integrate those directly to your panel give them our questions about those in new myq garage doors and getting them set up on your alarm comm for your IQ too then definitely reach out to us we'll be able to help you out one of the benefits to using a z-wave garage door opener is that you don't have to have the system activated for it to work and you'll be able to control the garage door right from the panel screen as opposed to just on your alarm comm app on whatever device you're accessing it on today we're going to show you how to do this on a linear gd0 0z garage door controller we have one of these set up right down here and we actually have it set up on our meter so that when we operate it with the system we'll be able to see how the garage door controller can open and close your garage door this particular device and most z-wave garage door controllers what they'll do is they'll actually wire in do terminals on the motor that specify for an opener this one works with a normally open loop many garage door motors though they'll have a normally open or normally closed terminal right there on there if you are looking to set up one of these devices the first note you're going to want to do is go up to your garage door motor and make sure that it does have the terminals for this device to be able to interface with your garage door motor so the first thing we're going to do on this is we're actually going to get it in rolled on our iq2 and then we're going to show you how it functions with this particular unit it has a tilt sensor that comes with the garage door controller this tilt sensor can become unenrolled from the unit so let's show you how to get it re enrolled onto the garage door controller in case that ever happens so if you do run into the problem of the tilt sensor not being enrolled to the garage door opener you can re and you do it right on the controller itself now this tilt sensor it doesn't enroll with the system just keep that in mind it only enrolls with the controller and if for some reason it doesn't know what direction D tilt sensor sitting in you may just need to reinitiate this connection so the process is pretty easy what I'm going to do is make sure that my tilt sensor is pointing in the up direction you'll see that the arrow is pointing up I'm going to press and hold the button until I get a beep I'm gonna let go I'm going to move the tilt sensor into the horizontal position I'm going to press and hold the button again until I get a flash some more beeps and that's going to confirm that the sensor is reenroll to the garage door opener so to do this and my tilt sensor here I'm gonna hold the button I got the beep I'm gonna let go horizontal position press and hold the button again got the flash I'm gonna let go I can see a little red LED right here is illuminating and there we go now our tilt sensor is reenroll to our garage door opener and it should work just fine if you find that this didn't reset the connection between the tilt sensor on the opener just perform this process again and it should work it should work out for you so with that Set let's go ahead and set it up on our closest system the first thing that we're going to want to do is clear or delete any z-wave programming we have on the particular device so we're gonna want to do an excluded device to dump everything before we include it you'll actually want to do that on any z-wave device just to make sure that you don't have any issues when you do and roll it into the system so on our panel we're going to slide down from the top we're going to do settings and then advanced settings I'll enter the default code of 2 2 2 2 and then installation devices z-wave devices then first we're going to clear it so I'm gonna clear device and now the system is waiting for me to hit the function and on the device I'm going to press it once and as we can see it was cleared and all the existing programming if there was anything on here is now dropped so now we should be able to add it in without any problems so we'll click OK and then do you add device and then include I'm going to press the same button on our garage door controller so I'm going to press it the system did see it and there we go so we have our ID our type and our name we're going to use this just like it is so I'm going to click Add to get it into the system and now we can see that we have added it to the system so I'm going to click the home button and then I'm going to slide over on the main screen until I get to the garage door section so the tilt sensor as you can see if it was attached to the garage door the door would be closed because this connects like such when this opens the garage door is going to open up and the tilt sensor is going to tilt and that'll tell the system that the door is open so if I move this to the horizontal position our system should tell us that the garage door has been open which is what we got it's so everything is working normally I'm going to go ahead and close it and as you can see the garage door or the system believes the garage door is closed so now what I'm going to do is I'm going to hit the open button on the system and what we should see is some activity occur on our meter I have the meter set to ohms right now and it's connected to the output coming from our garage door controller so this happens very quickly it's we may not even see a number on our meter we might just see the negative occur or some some movement over here but that will show us that when we click the open button on our panel that it is telling the garage door controller to activate the motor to open the garage door so let me give it a shot now as you can see we got we did get a reading and we got the negative and then I'm gonna move this to the open position and the system believes the garage door has been open so the device is working as expected and as you can see on the device it has a piezo sounder and it also has a flashing LED this will tell anybody that's in the garage that the door is opening or closing if you do
