Author Topic: How do I connect my garage-port opener to DI/DO port? Liftmaster with t  (Read 654 times)

I got a DCS 2132L network camera, and would like to connect my Liftmaster garage-port opener to the DI/DO port. Then I could open my garage-port from my mobile-phone from the network camera app. I have IP Cam Viewer on my phone and the app has this button to open garage-ports.

The garage-port opener (Liftmaster) has two-wire with a button. So I need to have the camera to short-cut this two wires to open the garage-port.

But I have read the wiring-scheme in the manual, and can not figure out how I can wire this.
Can anyone explain this for me?

1. Digital Out (DO)
2. Digital In (DI)
3. DC5Volt OUTPUT
4. GND

I know this is possible with DCS-5222L because one on this forum has done this, but the DI/DO port is not wired like the DCS-2132L port.

By the way, I have two more of this camera's, and can anyone tell my what value of the resistor I must
use if I want to connect alarm and magnet-switch the way it shows in the wiring-scheme in the DCS-2132L manual?
I want to use one of the other cameras for another project.
 :)

I have tested this many times, but can not get it to work. I asked Ezechias on this forum because he did this with D-Link DCS-5222 camera, and he confirmed that it is pin 1 and 2 (DO and DI) i should use. But I have tried it, and still can't get it to work.

So I don't know what to do, actually. I have bought 3 pcs DCS-2132 because these cameras have this connector.
There must be something wrong with these cameras.

Is it possible to contact D-Link to get some help with this problem, maybe?
I don't know, but I am tired of trying to making this work.

I recommend that you phone contact your regional D-Link support office and ask for help and information regarding this. We find that phone contact has better immediate results over using email.
Let us know how it goes please.

You should use Digital In and GND
Also go advance > DI and DO, to set the trigger to be "Normal Open" or "Normal Close"

The default is normal open,

I use DCS2132L for my cabin door with magnetic door sensor(normal Close), when it is open, the recording start. DCS5029 for my cat House Door

The Digital In and GND for DCS2132L and DCS5029 are at difference pin location.

You need to look at the specific wiring and switching requirement for your garage door opener and the digital contact limits of the camera.  Normally the switching circuits are 12 or 24VDC.  You are probably lucky if you have not destroyed the camera already.  Personally, I would use a relay to isolate the devices and prevent a problem.  You could use a resistor to drop voltage, but you need the voltage and current limits for both items and understand basic electronics.
