We are pleased to announce this new release which includes the following requested features:

Ratings and Reviews
Needs some of your time to configure this, now I can control my garage door and my gate remotely using my iPhone. And since I have my security cameras, I can even see the opening or closing of my doors.
The only problem I have now is that the company has shut down the forum so technical questions are not answered. The app on iPhone is no longer supported either.
Update: I used this app for 5 years but since it isn’t updated anymore and started causing issues, I’ve moved on to Nexx garage and was able to use the same wiring and hardware I was using for this app and my arduino. Thanks for the years of peace of mind that my garage was not left open.
Works just as advertised. Support is amazing and lightening quick. Instructions from the web site are spot on. May have found one bug, for some reason I had to program the sensor normally open for it to work even though my sensor circuit is open when the door is open and closed when the door is closed, it felt backwards but didn't affect functionality. The icon bugs me. I wish it were more cartoonish like the rest of my application icons and who keeps a formula 1 in their garage? Might just be me being picky. All around great app! Looking forward to future updates.
App works - Support is a forum
Good app that delivers in simplicity and function. Folks thinking the app would straight work with their devices without other hardware or configuration did not read and understand what this app's function is. If you need support during initial setup or troubleshooting, know that support is a forum layout where posts/issues are addressed at the convenience of vendor. No other means of support provided.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
