But also the opening of the house gate or the entrance door – for example – can be made smart in a very simple way (see 1Control SOLO and DORY devices).

  1. Guten Tag,

    ich habe mir den Solo Toröffner für mein Wisniowski ST2 Schiebetor bestellt. Da das System die Fernbedienung nicht erkannte, habe ich zusätzlich das 1 Control Solo Kit geordert und laut Anleitung angeklemmt. Leider ohne Erfolg. Ich habe Sie auch breits mit technischen Details angeschrieben aber leider bis heute noch keinen Lösungsansatz von Ihnen erhalten.

    1. Hallo Michael,
      Wir haben Ihre Support-Anfrage am 2. März beantwortet, versuchen Sie, Ihren SPAM-Ordner in Ihrer E-Mail zu überprüfen.

      Leider konnten wir auf dem Foto Ihres Steuergeräts keine Modellnummer finden und wir konnten es nicht identifizieren. Könnten Sie uns bitte mehr Bilder der Steuereinheit und aller internen Platinen zur Verfügung stellen? Bitte fügen Sie alle Etiketten/Drucke bei, die hilfreich sein könnten, und senden Sie die Fotos per E-Mail an
      Auf diese Weise können wir nach den Handbüchern suchen, sie studieren und den für Ihren spezifischen Bedarf erforderlichen Verdrahtungsplan erstellen.

      Vielen Dank!
