Excellent app.. no problems so far.. alerts my phone when the garage door is opened and when it closes and it's current position and how long it's been in that position.. connected flawlessly to wifi gateway and opener (liftmaster 8165) .. allows me to open or close the door from anywhere .. I've accepted deliveries by opening the garage door while I'm at work (in conjuction with video doorbell and video surveillance) and delivery person doesn't have to leave on my steps.. no problems so far.. app does what I need flawlessly
Pretty good app. Works well. I always know when somebody opened the garage door. No matter where I am. I can check that the doors are closed remotely and close them if needed. Only minor thing that I am not sure of is the security. It's a secure app, but could somebody get my info from the liftmaster server and open my doors without me knowing? I'm trusting it for now.
Needs published API so home automation people can use it. No desktop widgets, which is needed. This has been out for 2 years, thus company is not serious about automation, they just built a toy
Bought my first unit...was excited... when it arrived, I could not get it connected to the Garage Door Opener so I called LiftMaster and they sent me a new one. Same issues. The green light never stays solid, it blinks 4 times then pauses then rapid. I was finally able to get the unit connected to the Garage doors ... 2 of them. But whilst it was waiting to sync, spinning around... I exited the screen and that is how I have to get them connected. Now after connecting both doors, they work adhoc. The apps times out at times, and sometimes olens the door, but then cannot close it. I am now trying to get a refund!
Basic, but good when it works. Unfortunately, too often I get errors (failure to communicate, etc.) with no explanation or fix. Not cool, especially when you're coming home at 1am, it's cold/snowy outside, and now you have to get out of the car to open the garage door manually because this damn app doesn't work again....
Wish the scheduling tool would work with the kit. Pretty sad that I can't use the app for the single best reason that I purchased the kit.
