This is a pretty basic unit but it did what I wanted it to do for the price I paid for it. I have been slowly switching over my house to be a smart house and I am finding myself getting used to Alexa doing everything for me so I wanted to make my garage smart. I spend a lot of time in my garage working on projects so I am able to control lights and switches and music through Alexa and now I can open my garage door without going back to the front of the garage or shut it as I step out of the garage bu yelling at alexa!
Works great i do recommend!
Worked seamlessly for my garage opener. I have marantec synergy 260. The sensor works really good as its wired. My previous sensor was samsung smart things and that thing always goes offline after a while. So wanted to go for a reliable one, and this worked flawlessly. This doesn't need a hub so thats additional convenience. Only thing I would ask for is, it needs password using Google assistant. Would like to have disable password.
Initially when I received the product I was a bit skeptical thinking I would not be able to set it up myself. But I just googled and found a video on how to connect and also understood the purpose of the sensor and how it works. Connected to smart life app in less that a minute. Connected the wires and placed the device on top of the motor and connected the sensor magnet to the door. It worked seamlessly. You will have to setup pin in the app for google home to open the doors. It took a while to figure that out because that is not mentioned in the instructions. So when you ask google to open the door, it will ask for pin before opening the garage door for safety reasons. Also every time the garage door is opened or closed, it sends an alert message to your mobile. Loving this product.
This was a great buy. I wanted a smart garage door opener but didn't want to pay the heafty price for one. I didnt even know they made one until a friend of mine said why don't you add one separately. I jumped on here right away saw one and bought it. Its an easy setup. It can be time consuming but an easy setup and works with a smart app i already use for my lights. It works flawlessly.
