Hardware Setup

  • Wire the DS10A to the garage door, press and hold its TEST button for a few seconds, then close the battery door. Verify that the LED on the DS10A blinks when the garage door opens or closes. If it does not, please Experiment With Magnet Placement.
  • If you have one, wire the UM506 in parallel with the garage door opener. Set it to MOMENTARY and to a unique House and Unit Code. Plug the TM751 into a wall outlet, preferably one near the UM506. The TM751 receives the signals from the CM19A and transmits them over the power lines to control the UM506.
