The Link must be installed before you can add an IntelliTAG. An IntelliTAG can only be installed via the “Somfy Protect” mobile app.

Advice on positioning:
Placed on any type of opening, the IntelliTAGs communicate with the Link by radio. They have a range of 200 metres in open space. This range may vary according to the environment: number of walls to go through, thickness of the walls, materials, etc.
If the Link is positioned centrally in the house, there should be no communication problems.
Generally speaking, ensure that the IntelliTAG is placed as far as possible from objects or installations which may create magnetic disturbances (metallic frames, electricity meter, etc.).

Installation on a door (front door or internal door) or a window:
In the specific case of a door or window swinging on hinges, you are advised to place the IntelliTAG in a horizontal position at the top and about two thirds of the distance across the opening away from the hinge.
If your opening consists of several elements opening independent of one another, you can protect each element by fitting several IntelliTAGs.

Installation on a sliding door or window:
In the specific case of a sliding door or window, you are advised to place the IntelliTAG in a vertical position at the top corner of the pillar on the side where the handle is.
If your opening consists of several elements opening independent of one another, you can protect each element by fitting several IntelliTAGs.

Installation on a garage door:
In the specific case of a sliding garage door, you are advised to place the IntelliTAG in a vertical position. In other cases (tilt-up door, swing door), a horizontal position is preferable.
Attention: the IntelliTAG is not suitable for protecting roller doors.

installation procedure via the app:
1. if you are performing the initial installation of the system, follow the instructions given by the application
2. if you are adding a new IntelliTAG to an existing system
the Link must be connected and accessible
the alarm must be deactivated
open the “Settings” menu in your “Somfy Protect” app
select “My equipment”
add a new appliance using the icon “+” at the top right
select “IntelliTAG” then follow the instructions given by the app
