Got the Wyze Garage Door Controller today and just got it installed
Here’s what’s in the box
Here’s what’s not in the box
A STICKER??? Really? The garage door opener has no sticker??? And no App badge, say it ain’t so.
Ok.so, took me a little longer for install, mostly because I decided to swap my standard outlet above my garage door opener to a smart outlet just in case I ever need to power cycle the Cam.
After power was back on I went right at it.
The instructions are super easy to follow. I had a purple button garage door opener and option 2 (trip test) worked perfectly.
Setup was not much different than setting up a normal V3 except the extra cables and controller, all really plug-n-play. Just follow the instructions and you will be fine.
Mounting, geez…, I’m kind of a clean wire freak. Not the easiest because there is a fair amount of wiring and a garage door opener doesn’t have a lot of hiding spots but I got it where I liked it.
Word to the wise… clean all your areas you are mounting with the 3M tape. It’s a garage I’m sure it’s dirty, it’s ok… most of them are. This will ensure longer lasting adherence.
I will note that I just used the magnetic base for the camera and stuck it to the garage door opener box, and I’m a bit floored how well it stays, not only that but the camera does not shake a ton when the door goes up and down… this really blew me away.
Got the door calibrated to the QR code after a firmware update and the door functions perfectly. I will be honest, I’m not stoked about having a giant QR code stuck to my garage door, but whatever.
The door Goes up when I open from the app and down when I close from the app.
And that’s my 15 minutes with the Wyze Garage Door Controller (GDC)
Will dive in and play and make note of any coolness.
