I’m trying to setup a Nuki Opener but there doesn’t seem to be any documentation. The box doesn’t contain a manual, the help pages keep referring to the guided process in the Nuki app. When I pair the Opener in the Nuki iOS app (version 2.4.1), it doesn’t give me any options or guided information. It just pairs the device and that’s it.
So where can I find information about the Nuki Opener, it’s modes of operations, it’s wiring information etc?
Via direct command (App, Button in the Opener, API, etc.)
Via geofence event (our “Auto Unlock” feature adopted for the Opener)
A Ring to Open is always time restricted (Default: 20 minutes) and can also be restricted to “one time use” as an option.
The Continuous Mode is more or less a “Continuous Mode for Ring to Open” meaning that it has the same functionality but without a defined ending (so it won’t stop, till you deactivate it).
The “Door mode (2)” is the default state for an activated and calibrated device (Smart Lock or Opener).
The additonal “Continuous mode (3)” was added for the Opener as a “Special Door Mode” to be able to have Ring to Open and Continuous Mode running at the same time. Why? Because else it would be very complex to e.g. handle an Auto Unlock event during Continuous Mode running while preserving the correct settings.
The device always has to have a state. If you deactivate Continuous Mode it will go back to Door Mode.
As you have to explicitly end the Continuous Mode again, this can also be done by scheduled events and via the APIs, yes.
