With the GarageMax App, you can open your garage door using your iPhones and or Apple Watch. You can pair up to 8 phones/watches. The GarageMax App requires purchase of our Bluetooth4.0 GarageMax Receiver available from our website and on Amazon.

GarageMax is trusted by thousands of users worldwide and is the most secure garage door opener. The simple installation takes 2 minutes. Even if someone else has the GarageMax App they will not be able to open your garage without your permission.

Compatible with Genie, Liftmaster, Chamberlain, Sears Craftsman, Raynor, Wayne-Dalton, Axis Cam, AccessMaster, Somfy, and nearly all garage door openers built in the last 50 years that use a simple wall switch. Note that newer Liftmaster/Chamberlains/Craftsman that have a YELLOW learn button will only work with Chamberlain accessories and are not compatible with GarageMax. Please visit our compatibility page for more details.

Only devices that have been previously paired to the GarageMax Receiver can open your garage door. The pairing process requires physical access to the receiver so it it not possible for someone else to pair their phone to the receiver from outside your garage.

The GarageMax App is FREE and you can buy the latest low-cost GarageMax Receiver from our website or by searching for "GarageMax" on Amazon. The GarageMax Receiver includes a power adapter and never needs batteries. Your old remotes and wall switch will will continue to work just as they did before.

We performed extensive fail-safe testing under extreme temperatures of -40F to above 140F. We also tested high humidity, power loss problems, and many other situations. Even under extreme conditions, the GarageMax Receiver never opens your garage door accidentally. Also, because you can password protect your phone and the App, we believe this is the most secure way to access your home. With password protection, if you lose your phone no one can enter your home. The same can't be said for keys and your other garage door remotes.

Thank you for the download and support.

Was excited

I was really excited when I saw this. Downloaded it and the install was easy. It works great to open the garage if I am inside the garage or to put the garage door down. It will not, however, open the garage door from outside. The signal is not strong enough. I have a newer house with a lightweight metal garage door. Sometimes I have to move my iPhone around to get garage mate to open my door from outside so the problem may be unique to me. It would be nice to go walking without my phone but that didn’t happen.

Thank you Developer for your prompt response. That is great customer service. I have an Apple Watch series 5 so I don’t think the watch is the issue. My garage mate is 4 years old. Would that matter? Thanks so much

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your review and sorry for the trouble. Could you let us know which Apple Watch model you have. Our company only field tested Series 3 and later. Perhaps the Series 1 and 2 watch have a lower signal strength. But we were definitely impressed by the Series 3 Watch so we didn't we didn't anticipate any range issues. Also most of our customers have a metal door so that shouldn't be the issue. One possible consideration that might help is the angle you hold your arm. With a watch, unlike a phone, there is a much greater chance your body tissue is what is blocking the signal. Thank you and we hope this message helped.

Nicely Done

Works great, and the receiver is simple to install. Like being able to use my watch to open the door. Best thing is that no data is collected - nice.

Overall I am very happy with the app. However I wish it would work with car play as soon as possible.
