Less than 5 minutes to Install

I got this and it took me less than 5 minutes to install and configure , smart garage door in minutes. Opening and closing the door is easy, swipe up or down and I love the auto close feature.

Only complaint, Apple Watch app just closes when trying to open it. Not sure why it won’t work. But app works in iPhone and iPad without issues. Please fix apple watch app!

No more worries

Once it is set up, it is a relief to know that we can be assured our garage door is closed and if it isn’t to be able to close it without having to drive all the way back to close it. Setting it up was not easy because of nuances in our router software. But once those issues were resolved it works like a charm.

Oh cool pinky ,

Good try but need improvements!

The setup is very flaky and really need improvement. If you move out of the setup screen, you need to start over again. If you go through the setup, Create an account, and as you try to scan the monitor, if you go back to home, cannot go back and setup again, it errors out saying device is already registered.

If you already have a login account, there is no way add a controller. So looks like one account per controller is required.

This app is a good try but really need improvement!
