miDoor Internet Garage Door & Gate Controller  (Indigo Plugin)

Contributed by: Andrew Corlett

Overview

miDoor is an Internet-enabled device that allows users to remotely view their garage door and/or gate status and open or close it with an iPhone, Android device, iPad or a Web-browser.

Connect miDoor to an existing garage door switch, add the door sensor and then set the basic configuration. From there you will be able to create multiple user-profiles, view the door status anywhere in the world using your iPhone, iPad or a Web-browser and open or close the garage door using your iPhone, iPad or Web-browser.

Alarms can be created that can notify you if the door is activated at unexpected times, is left opened too long, or if activated by a specific user. Alarms status is visible by LED, from an iPhone, iPad or Web-browser and/or by receiving email notifications.

No longer will you have to worry about who gets the two standard issued remotes from the garage door opener nor have to worry about trying to program the garage door openers in your car, miDoor will allow up to 36 unique user accounts to open or close the garage door using an Android device, iPhone, iPad or Web-browser.

Every time the garage door is opened or closed it is logged into an event buffer. View the log and get a history of the events with the times in which they occurred.

Installation

Unzip miDoorIndioPlugin.zip onto the machine that is running Perceptive Automations' Indigo software and click on the file miDoor.indigoPlugin. This will cause the plugin to be installed into Indigo.

Indigo Version 6 or above is required.

Usage

Attach the plugin to a miDoor device and add a miDoor device by selecting new in Indigo's Device view and choose miDoor as both the 'type' and 'model'.

You are required to configure the IP Address, Username and Password.

The App Server Port defaults to 2553 and if that was changed on the miDoor device be sure to change it here too.

'Poll Time' is the number of seconds that the plugin should check the status of the door or gate.  60 seconds is the default.  The Poll Time will affect how quickly the door or gate status is updated and any triggers that you create.

Multiple miDoor devices are supported.
