GarageMate and Garage Remote

GarageMate, in comparison to your garage remote, is very safe and secure. First, it does not need Wi-Fi or an Internet connection. This means that you are not bothered by Internet insecurities, just your Bluetooth security alone. You also have the password security for the ultimate security. You could also decide to let your ‘guest’, such as your family or your friends in, using a password.


One of the many amazing features of the GarageMate is that you would find it super simple to install. Installation would take you little or no time at all. To install, first you have to connect your garage door opener to the GarageMate Receiver. You would find that there are only two wires (red and white) that you have to connect to your garage door opener. It is important to note that this connection does not alter your other connections like a wall switch if you had one or your garage remotes.

It only gets better; GarageMate is simple to use and efficient. You can have it connected to more than one garage at a time, and you can control these garages with just one App which is on your device, and you can also pair up multiple devices to one GarageMate. The App itself is simple and user-friendly. It works using one-click control. And yes, the App is free, all you have to do is install it on your phone.
