First of all, the ismartgate requires a sensor to know the status of the door. If you do not have one it can be purchased from one of our shops:

USA
Europe
Pacific

If you have a sensor but is not working, it can be cause by different issues:

  1. The ID of the sensor is wrong, please see here the instructions to change the ID of the sensor in the doors configuration.
  1. The battery of the sensor has run out, please see here the instructions to change the batteries of the sensor.
  1. The sensor needs to be less than 10 meters away from the ismartgate, in direct sight without any obstacles (like a brick wall or a metal door). Please try taking out the sensor and moving closer to the ismartgate. Can you see a status change in the app?

Move the sensor just like the door would.

The ismartgate's status light will blink faster each time it detects the sensor. In case this does not happen please send an email to support@ismartgate.com.

  1. The sensor is not correctly placed, see the placement of the sensor depending on which type of door you have:
  • For GARAGE doors:
Up and Over
Sectional
Roller
Swing
Side Sectional
  • For GATES:
Swing
Sliding
Folding

The ismartgate can be powered up with a Solar panel with a battery, with a battery or directly from your Gate.

But for that it is necessary a converter like this.

The instructions to connect this converter to the ismartgate are below:

If you require extension wire for the power cord here is an example of what you would need.

If instead you require extension wire for the door connections and /or the wired sensor connections here is an example.

If you do not want to cut the power supply that comes with the ismartgate, here is a power supply for Europe and USA.

In case you do not know the connections from your opener to power up the device please do not hesitate to contact us at support@ismartgate.com and send us the manual of your opener, or the brand and model so we can find it online.

The wireless sensor from the Gogogate2 is not compatible with the ismartgate LITE and the ismartgate PRO. As it uses a different frequency to transmit the information.

But please note that the new wireless sensors are improved for the association with IFTTT, Alexa, Google Home and Homekit. As they detect the door opening, instead of the door opened (fully horizontal position) and closed (fully vertical position) only. They detect the vibrations of the door opening, therefore they can make the detection for IFTTT triggers more reliable.

The wired sensor is ONLY compatible with the ismartgate PRO:

Here are the connections for door 1:

Here are the connections for door 2:

Here are the connections for door 3:

  3. The sensor is not working, follow the instructions here to check if everything is correct.
  4. The ismartgate is not configured. The ismartgate is a Hub to link Homekit with a gate or garage door. To work it requires the device to be fully configured, at least one door enabled.
  5. In case there is an automation but you do not have an Apple TV or a bridge, it will not work.

HomeKit only has the accessory created for Garage doors, not Gates. You can use a Gate without an issue, but the icon and the home app will treat the gate as a Garage door accessory.

Here is a list of all accessories that Apple has available, there is only Garage set as door.

The ismartgate is not compatible with CarPlay for now.

At the moment, HomeKit is not compatible with CarPlay because it requires a confirmation from the user every time you want to open or close the door.

That confirmation requires to unlock the phone and confirm, that is considered dangerous if you are using your car with CarPlay.

NOTE: The new iOS version, iOS 13 will allow the use of Siri to open your Garage or Gate using CarPlay without the need of a confirmation. Here is the information about this new version.

Unfortunately, the remote access is not allowed with HomeKit Unless you have an Apple TV (since the 4th Generation) and / or a HomePod connected to your Home network, to be the one that sends the instruction to open or close the door to the ismartgate.

You can even associate an iPad to act as a bridge, here are the instructions to make the Apple devices compatible a Bridge.

Please note that to create Automations you would have the same requirement as for the remote access. Here is more information about automations.

Alexa

The connection from Alexa to the ismartgate device requires IFTTT to be made, here are the instructions.

Alexa does not have any smart home skill for Garage or Gate, that is why we need IFTTT to be able to connect the device.

To connect your Alexa to your ismartgate Device you need IFTTT. In case you want to create a new applet, the instructions to do so are here.

If you do not have your ismartgate associated you can associated the moment you create the applet below or follow the instructions here.

Below you will find the instructions to create an applet that will allow you to open or close your door by saying a specific phrase to Amazon Alexa.

  1. Open your IFTTT app.
  2. Select the option Get More.
  1. Here you are able to create a new applet or search for any service you may want to associate with IFTTT.
  1. Search for the service GarageWi-Fi & Gates.
  1. Select the applet you want to create.
  1. Slide to associate Alexa to the ismartgate through IFTTT. In case you do NOT have either Alexa or the ismartgate connected to IFTTT it will ask you to connect them.
  1. Configure the Applet as you want, select the phrase you will say to Alexa in order to open or close the door.
  1. Select the door you want to open or close with Alexa.
  1. Enjoy your new applet.

Please note that if you want to use Alexa to close the door you would need to repeat this process to create a new Applet to close.

If you have more than one door, you would need to repeat both applets for all the doors you have.

The phrase used to trigger Alexa NEEDS to have the word Trigger in it, but IFTTT will add automatically that prefix on the phrase so you do NOT need to write it when setting up the applet, but please make sure you SAY it when you want Alexa to open the door. The rest of the phrase can be anything else, like the name of the door if you have more than one.

Unfortunately, IFTTT only allows the association of one device for each IFTTT account.

It would be necessary to create a new IFTTT account and associate the other device to that account.
