If this is not the first gate in the community, select the community name under “Recent Communities.” Otherwise, tap “New Community” and proceed to the next step.
Enter the Community Info
Please make sure the correct phone number and email for the Gate Owner is entered during this step. Without the proper contact information, Nimbio will not be able to activate the device!

Configure the Device
Tap “Continue” to enter the device configuration screen.
If you’d like to change the Latch Name to something other than “Main Gate” tap the Latch Name field and type in the new name.

Set the Gate Location
If the pin matches the location where the device is being installed, tap the button in the bottom right to continue to the next step. Otherwise, move the pin to the location where the device will be installed.
If the programming is successful, you will see the “Success” screen. Tap the “Continue” button to proceed.
Test the Device
To test if Nimbio can open the gate, press the button on the Nimbio board. The button is located on the right side of the board next to the Nimbio logo, circled in red here:
After you press the button, the “Open” button will turn blue. Stand clear of the gate and press the “Open” button and confirm that the device opens the gate.
What happens next?
Nimbio will activate the service once we have collected payment information from the community.
Mount the Box
After screwing in the box top with the 4 included screws, mount the box in a convenient place inside the gate operator housing.
Make sure that the antennas are pointing upwards.
