New to YoLink?
If you are starting your first YoLink system, you will need a hub. YoLink devices do not connect to your WiFi or even directly connect to your network. Your YoLink devices communicate directly with your Hub, which is the only device that connects to your network.
You have two Hubs to choose from, our original YoLink Hub or our new SpeakerHub. SpeakerHub is an audio hub, capable of playing custom tones/sounds and messages. Spoken messages, in clear text-to-speech-based phrases of your choice.
SpeakerHub is recommended for your smart garage solution, as it can audibly give you specific information about the status of your garage doors, for example, it can play an attention-getting tone, then "garage door 2 is still open" (if your garage door is left open too long)p.
YoLink, by YoSmart (a US corporation based in Irvine, California), is a line of smart products for residential and commercial use, utilizing wireless technology initially utilized for industrial and other large-scale applications. This technology, LoRa, short for Long-Range, is unique in the smart home industry and provides you with benefits that include 2 to 10 year battery life, 1/4 mile extreme long range, superior wall and obstruction penetration, including concrete, masonry and even metal!
YoLink benefits include a more secure automation network due to a centralized and encrypted internet connection, as the devices are not on the internet and they do not rely on WiFi. All communication is encrypted, and controlled by US-based AWS servers, for finance-grade security, backups and redundancies. Our patented Control-D2D device-to-device pairing allows for offline operation, including functionality even after the loss of WiFi, internet, and AC power, making it perfect for any security-related application.
What is YoLink Control or Control-D2D?
Control D2D (device-to-device) pairing allows for one or more sensors to be paired with one or more other sensors, in a way that they will respond and operate automatically, even with the loss of WiFi, internet and AC power. For example, leak sensors can be paired to a valve controller, so that the water is shut off automatically when a leak is detected. Or, a garage door sensor can be paired to a Relay or Siren, so it activates when the door is opened.
If your smart system absolutely must perform, no matter what - power outage, loss of internet - you can depend on YoLink Control-D2D!
What is LoRa?
We'll spare you the techy mumbo-jumbo and simply tell you that LoRa, short for Long-Range, is a unique wireless communication standard that has superior obstruction penetration, and achieves incredibly long range while using very little power. YoSmart was the first to bring LoRa technology to the smart home, and we continue to innovate, with two-way encryption, and patented Control-D2D device-to-device pairing that offers an offline mode that will continue to provide functionality even with the loss of internet and AC power.
By comparison to smart devices that utilize WiFi, Z-Wave and Zigbee, the YoLink wireless network can achieve over 1300 feet in open air, compared to their ~300 feet.
Step 1: Select Your Hub
Select a hub in this step, or proceed to step 6 to select from one of our convenient starter kits, with everything you need for your smart garage project!
Choose either our original YoLink Hub, or our SpeakerHub. Customers love our new SpeakerHub, as it can play attention-getting sounds, like a siren sound, and verbally inform you of off-normal and alarm conditions.
Please see the Hub or SpeakerHub pages for additional info.
Step 2: Select Your Garage Door Controller
Placement and Installation:
The Finger garage door controller is typically mounted at the wall button. The included 3M brand mounting tape is used to secure the controller to the wall, with no screws or other mounting hardware. And, it is worth point out, no wiring is required!
The Garage Door Controller 1 can be installed at the wall button or at the garage door operator. At the operator is most convenient, as the GDC 1 does require power, and a little bit of wiring (wire and plug-in power supply included - more info below). When you install the GDC 1 at the operator, there is typically a 120V outlet for the included plug-in power supply, and you can also place the GDC 1 out of sight. It also comes with 3M-brand mounting tape.
