What does the inputs do on Nold?
You can use it to hook up an additional open & close sensor for each input. This is an optional feature and it is not required to use Nold. This sensor can be a cheap magnetic contact switch, for example: This switch should be NC (Normally Closed, which means if your garage is closed, this should be closed too). You can buy it at your local hardware store or order online (e.g. from Amazon). The r
How does Nold Open work?
Think of Nold Open as low-voltage push button and a switch, which is controlled by your phone. Nold supports two operation modes: Pulse mode This is the default option, which works like a push button.

How small is the Nold Open device and is it waterproof?
With the plastic housing and the connector plugged in, the size is 10cm x 5cm x 2cm (4in x 2in x 0,8in). Without the plastic cover, the size is 7,5cm x 4,5cm x 1,5cm. As you can see, Nold can fit into very tight spaces, like control boxes, switchboxes etc... Nold is not waterproof, so if you're planning to use it outside, we recommend using a waterproof plastic housing for Nold.

Sometimes you might see the pending status message on your devices when you sign in Nold Cloud: This happens when you revoke a key from someone that had offline access. To fix this, you need to go to the device with your phone and open the door once. This will activate the necessary changes on the device and everything will work as before. Do I need to do this every time I rev
How many doors can one Nold device control?
Every device has two separate outputs called OUT1 and OUT2. You can setup these outputs as individual devices/keys in the app, so you can control them one by one and share access to them separately. This is useful if you have a twin garage for example, since you can use a single Nold Open device to control both doors. For entry gate, you can use one of the outputs to control the pedestrian function of your gate for example. You can also change the operation modes for one of the outputs, so you
