Genie

Time-based Features

Genie

Virtual Keys

Create a virtual key as it allows homeowners to provide temporary or permanent access to relatives, friends, or service workers. Simply have the person download the free app, add their name to your list of users and what time length of access you want to give, and you're all set. Their virtual key will expire in an hour, a day, a month, or whatever time frame you set.

Genie

Automatically Close at a Certain Time

Set your door to automatically close at any time. For example, maybe everyone in the house has been using the garage at different times and it's hard to tell if the last person using it closed the door for the night. So to be safe, you set it to automatically close at 10 p.m. in case the last person using it for the day forgets to close it.

Genie

Automatically Close After a Set Time Frame

Set your garage door to close after a set time frame. Let's say everyone in the house knows to close the door after they're done in the garage so it's not open too long for bugs or rodents to get in. But just in case they forget, you can set the door to always automatically close after one or two hours of being continually open, or whatever timeframe you set.

Appears to work well, installs easily. 11/29/2019 7:59:35 PM

Pros: Easy installation, only basic tools needed. Comes with all the parts you need to install.

Cons: Instructions could be a bit clearer, especially the part where you have to scan the back of the unit to get it registered by the phone app.

Overall Review: If you have an AC outlet near where you are installing, installation is a breeze. I spent more time trying to get the device hooked into my wi-fi than installing the hardware. I'm partly to blame as I have a long and complex password. The app hides the characters as you enter them so I kept making mistakes. In any case, why do you need to hide the characters as they are typed, it's not like someone is looking over my shoulder. I don't use Alexa or Google Assistant so I can't rate those features.

Excellent product 8/9/2019 11:28:00 AM

Pros: Easy installation and set-up
Allow multiple users access via app
Can be set to automatically shut door if left open at night (or whenever)
Alerts when door is opened or closed

Cons: None so far

Overall Review: This is a great solution if you ever need to replace a remote door opener or want to operate your door from another location. I initially got this so it would be easy to operate the door from a motorcycle where I didn't have a space top mount the standard opener. Everything is controlled via the app on my smartphone. I wired it directly to the current wall mount units I have and liked it so much, I purchased a second door sensor for our other garage door. This will work with up to three doors and so far has worked flawlessly. I have already recommended this unit to others and will continue to do so.

Nice add-on for your garage door opener 7/31/2019 1:32:06 PM

Pros: As technology marches on, products are often harder to set up and get working. The Genie WiFi add-on was no exception. I started with reading the quick start guide to get an idea of the various ways this unit could be installed. Then I watched the video that walks you thru the process. I had a Genie Opener which was about 6 years old. They did not offer a Wifi controller at that time. So the Newegg special offer caught my eye right away. Free and fast shipping is a newegg hallmark.
After the installing the App on a Android phone it guided you through how to set up the controller and get it connected to your Wifi router. After completing the process it was time to decide where to mount the controller. You can put it next to your exisitng control box. The unit does require an AC outlet for the transformer and outlets are not often in the right place. But there is an outlet at the opener/motor. That's where I mounted the unit and connected two wires to those leading to the exisitng controller. My old controller also controls the light and the vacation settings so you want to retain that controller.
There is also a wireless door sensor which mounts on the upper door panel. When the door is open, the sensor is horizontal and sends a signal to the controller to indicate an open door. When the door is closed the sensor is vertical and a signal is sent to the controller indicating a closed door.
The installation ran into trouble when the the app said the controller was "paired but not connected." After trying to reprogram the controller it was time to call the tech support number provided.
Many have experienced frustration when dealing with vendor support people and I was prepared for that possibility. But this time it was different. I had a support person on the phone in just a few minutes. She took my number so she could call back if we got disconnected. She had me go through some steps and determined that the door sensor was the problem. But the problem was not corrected until she had me connect the phone directly to the controller's Wifi so it could be reprogrammed. Problem solved!
After the call I thought about what had transpired. I have to say that the person that I worked with was very knowledgable, courteous, patient and spoke very clearly. She never tried to hurry the process. Genie is a Company that has been around for a long time and I would recommend their products. And they know how to give outstanding customer support. I hope someone at Genie reads this and gives that support person a big raise. She eared it!

Cons: Once the Android App is launched, it will not close normally. You have to press the lower left part of the screen which will bring up all of your previous windows. Then you can close it from there. I'm sure they will fix this bug so that the program will close normally.

Overall Review: This project works as advertised. Genie has a solid reputation and backs it up with outstanding customer support!

Terrible Product - Wi-Fi Connection Issues 7/24/2019 8:36:46 PM

Pros: Installation process was not complicated. Video provided by Aladdin is helpful for a smooth installation

Cons: The biggest con is very poor Wi-Fi connectivity with Controller. Every day the controller goes offline and I need to restart the controller to make it work. Another issue is that the garage will open or close after about 10 to 20 seconds after you press open or close in the mobile app. Not recommended

Overall Review: Sub-par product, barely functions consistently. Has severe Wi-Fi connectivity issues as it uses 2.4 GHz frequency to connect. Fed up resetting the controller on a daily basis! Not recommended!
