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
It's an "okay" app. The push notifications do no tell you if the garage door truly successfully opened or closed, it's really just a telltale that you initiated the request. To determine if the door successfully closed, you have to look at the door icon to see if it states open or closed. You sometimes receive multiple notifications for one depress of the button as well. The opener itself doesn't pair with a 2010 Infiniti (a $65 repeater or a $24.99 unit is sold separately). Last but not least the motor makes a low tone whine diring operation of opening and closing the door.
Works well. I have two openers on one account and tried to add the second one to the first "Place" with no luck. Once I added a second "place" within the app, I had control of the second opener. There is about a 30 second delay in getting notified of either door opening or closing. The notification only happens when the open/close cycle is complete, not when the cycle starts. Operation of the doors from the app works by touching the door picture. It's worked every time, but you need to be careful with a smart-phone that you don't touch it while swiping the screen.
Had this app and the liftmaster garage door opener for about 8 months. Last night came home to find the garage door OPEN. No one had opened it. It opened on it's own. Checking the log there is no record of the door opening. Looking online this seems to be an increasingly common problem. STAY AWAY or your stuff will get stolen.
I have been using this app for just a few days now. I use it for a rolling driveway gate, not a garage door. So far, so good. No issues and easy to set up. One heads-up though: in case you are wondering how to set the delay on the gate closure; that has to be done on the motor itself. As far as I know, it is not something that you set within the app.
My clicker had stopped working so I tried this love this me and my wife were able to lock both garage doors yet still open them over the internet. We also have a keypad outside the door so if the internet goes down we can still get in the door from the outside.
