Great app, crasher bug prevents use on iPad

Love the app. Use it all the time on my iPhone. Tried installing it on my iPad, but every time I click “login” the app immediately crashes. Hopefully they fix this issue!

Low latency, reliable.

Overall this is a very well polished app and device. My only hiccup so far was not being able to paste my password from a password manager during a password reset. Other than that, for the past week, my garage door has been much smarter, and I continue to be just as dumb. Luckily I don’t have to worry about leaving it open anymore. It just shuts itself.

Feature request!
Use location services to allow me to disable notifications while I’m home. The schedule feature is cool, but I’m not on a set schedule.

Exceeded expectations

In reviewing apps this one stood out with automatic opening The wait list confirmed its popularity. While I installed it myself, you may want instillation if you can afford it. I’m modestly tech savvy and needed support which I give full 5 stars. The Best part is automatically opening and closing the door even if we forgot to close at night and then telling you so you can build good habits. Try it and you won’t go back to not having it. Awesome and fun
