WARNING: Do not apply power to the CLIQ.mini until installation is complete. Failure to do so may result in bodily injury and/or damage to the equipment.

Installation

We recommend placing the CLIQ.mini in an open centrally located area within the home, and using the included wall mount to attach the CLIQ.mini to a standard single gang box.

The CLIQ.mini should not be mounted in a structured enclosure, panel, or closet. If the CLIQ.mini is placed in a closed off area, the wireless signal strength may be compromised.

Note: To prevent radio frequency (RF) interference, we recommend that you place the CLIQ.mini away from devices that may cause interference and away from grounded metals.

Powering on and connecting the CLIQ.mini

After installing the CLIQ.mini and downloading the ClareHome App, power on the CLIQ.mini. The CLIQ.mini can be powered using PoE or the included 5v micro USB adapter.

WARNING: You must follow the instructions below to power your CLIQ.mini. Failure to do so may result in bodily injury and/or damage to the equipment.

Connecting power to the CLIQ.mini

Note: PoE connection can be provided through a PoE switch or PoE injector.

Connecting with a PoE switch:

1. Verify the PoE switch is connected to the Internet.

2. Connect the Ethernet cable from the PoE enabled switch to the Ethernet port on the CLIQ.mini. See Figure 1, item 6.

3. Once the mini has internet connection, the mini may update. Once the mini begins to update, the LED flashes blue and red in unison. This update can take up to five minutes.

Note: Do not remove power or network connection during this process, doing so may cause damage to the ClareHome system requiring maintenance from Technical Services.

Connecting with a PoE injector:

Note: This requires two Ethernet cables, they are referred to as cable #1 and cable#2.

1. Plug an Ethernet cable (#1) into the Ethernet port on your CLIQ.mini. See Figure 2, item 1.1.

2. Plug the opposite end of the cable into the PoE injector port labeled POE. See, Figure 2, item 1.2.

3. Plug a separate Ethernet cable (#2) into the LAN port on the PoE injector. See, Figure 2, item 2.1.

4. Plug the opposite end of the Ethernet cable (#2) into an Ethernet port on your router. See Figure 2, item 2.2.

5. Plug the PoE power supply into the D/C port on the PoE injector. See Figure 2, item 6.2.

6. Plug the PoE power supply into a wall outlet. See Figure 2, items 6 and 5.

7. Once the mini has internet connection, the mini may update. Once the mini begins to update, the LED flashes blue and red in unison. This update can take up to five minutes.

Note: Do not remove power or network connection during this process, doing so may cause damage to the ClareHome system requiring maintenance from Technical Services.

Configure, test, and deploy a project

Refer to the Fusion Configuration Tool Administrator Guide (Doc ID 069) for instructions on creating, testing, and deploying a project. When you deploy the project from Fusion, it will deploy to the CLIQ.mini.

Mounting the CLIQ.mini on a standard single gang box

When mounting the CLIQ.mini to the desired gang box, we recommend using the provided wall mounting bracket.

To mount the CLIQ.mini on a standard single gang box:

1. Place the wall mount against a standard gang box. See Figure 5, items 1 and 3.

2. Align the long screws in the wall mount, and then fully screw them in. Repeat this with the short screws, stopping with enough room remaining to support the CLIQ.mini. See Figure 5, items 4 and 5.

3. Align the CLIQ.mini over the screws, and then slide it down, locking it in place. See Figure 5, item 6.

Understanding LED colors and the CLIQ.mini status

The CLIQ.mini has LED indicators that change colors based on the CLIQ.mini’s status. Once powered on, observe the CLIQ.mini’s LED status. Figure 6 identifies the LEDs on the CLIQ.mini.

Note: The ClareHome connection can take up to 90 seconds. Wait the full 90 seconds before attempting to troubleshoot.

Blue

  • When the LED flashes blue in 1 second intervals, the device is booting normally.
  • When the device is solid blue after booting up, the device is functioning properly.
  • When the LED flashes blue in .5 seconds intervals, the CLIQ is unable to connect to the internet.

Red/Blue

  • Alternating: When the LED flashes red and blue in .5 second intervals, the CLIQ.mini is restarting in Access Point (AP) mode.
  • Flashing in unison at .5 second intervals: The CLIQ.mini is updating.

Note: Do not remove power or network connection during this process, doing so may cause damage to the ClareHome system requiring maintenance from Technical Services.

Red/not lit

  • When the LED flashes red in .5 second intervals, the CLIQ.mini is in AP mode.
  • Note: When the controller is in AP mode, it creates its own wireless network.
  • When the LED is red or not lit, see the “Troubleshooting steps”.
