New router


Hi, I’ve just installed a new router and the Garaget obviously won’t connect until I put in the new password, where do I put the password.

Thanks in advance.


Press and hold “M” button until LED blinks dark blue.
Connect your phone, tablet or WiFi enabled computer to PHOTON-XXXX WiFi access point.
Navigate browser to
Select your new WiFi router, enter password and submit the form.
If credentials are correct Garadget will go back to slowly pulsing cyan.

Password Change & Enhanced Access Control

Hi Denis, for some reason, no matter what I try I can’t connect to the site thought the link in your post?


For this link to work you need to be first connect whatever you are using to PHOTON-XXXX WiFi access point provided by Garadget. Please follow the above steps in the exact order and let me know if it doesn’t work.


Hi, I’ve tried this, the web page says saving credentials then I get an error message saying check that you are still well connected to the devices WiFi hotspot and retry. I’ve done this multiple times to no avail. The garaget then his back to rapid flashing green.


Please try the same from your WiFi enabled laptop or tablet. Some smartphones are configured to fall back to the cellular data connection if they can’t reach interned through the connected WiFi access point.


Thanks for all the help, all working great now. I ended up using an Apple device as I’ve never had success setting up the units with Android.


Thanks for the update.
What was your Android device and OS version?


It’s version 8.0.0 on a Samsung S8 Denis.
