We got a GENIE Aladdin Connect Smart Garage Door Opener Kit ( https://amzn.to/3jVROyw ) to replace our 20+ year old Lift Master remote control. We are going to UNBOX and REVIEW the Aladdin Connect.

Our Lift Master garage door opener remote broke so we wanted to get a smaller universal remote ( https://amzn.to/3iRb2Ec ). We needed a garage remote for our 2017 Chevy Volt which did not have a garage door opener built into the car. We also want to upgrade to the ability to control and view status of the garage door via a smart phones app. Most universal remotes cost about $30, and since we needed 3 remotes, it was worth exploring an app based solution like the Aladdin Connect ( https://amzn.to/3jVROyw ). There were options to give our friends access to return borrowed items to the garage and be able to monitor the status of the door.
The install was 30 minutes to setup the app, control unit, and mount the door position sensor. The Genie website had very detailed instructions. We just replaced the wires of the old wall switch to the new control module. You can add up to 3 doors to the system with additional sensors ( https://amzn.to/2GVHLeG ). Each Aladdin Connect Door position sensor uses a CR2450 battery ( https://amzn.to/3lGuhCj ) The app can view door status history and which account opened or closed the door. Aladdin Connect can also be controlled by Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.
Overall, it was a very simple install and upgrade that took less than an hour to setup and add to our cell phones. It comes with hardware and wire to direct wire to the existing garage opener if needed. You will need to make sure your WiFi signal can reach the Aladdin Connect Control unit. If not you may need to get a Wifi extender ( https://amzn.to/2IlgOBk ). We will revisit and review this device and app in a few months, and will give you an update, so subscribe and stay tuned.
