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
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.
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.
I have successfully used most of the features. The alert when the door is left opened gives me some peace of mind. I also like being able to check the app when I am away. I have been able to successfully open the door when needed via the app too. However, closing it from the app is a challenge. It worked when I first installed the device and did setup, but not since. Thus my rating. Fortunately, I have not had a need to close it via the app, but if I ever do that likely will be disappointing/frustrating.
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 it's successful 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 actual opener is buggy, one of the lights dims very low but doesn't go off (I'm certain it's not a "feature"), and the opener doesn't pair with a 2010 Infiniti (a $65 repeater is sold separately), and last but not least is the low tone whine it makes when it opens and closes.
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....
