If you are like many homeowners, the garage door is the largest and most used entry point to the home. Monitoring who is going in and out of your
garage or having the ability to use your smart device to operate the garage door gives peace-of-mind and control.

Aladdin Connect does those things and much more. With Aladdin Connect not only can you check whether your garage door is open or closed, but you can also:

  1. Instantly know that someone is operating your garage door, whether the person is an authorized user or not.
  2. Know when someone is manually operating your door so you can take necessary steps to find out who and why.
  3. Open the door for anyone such as delivery or repair persons, relatives, or friends when they call or text you upon their arrival so you don't have to provide a temporary access password.
  4. Have a history for each opener of when the door was used including dates & times.

The Aladdin Connect Advantage

Because Aladdin Connect uses a sensor attached to the garage door itself, you are alerted as to whether the door changes to the fully open or closed position even if the door is operated manually by disengaging the door from the opener. That’s a big security advantage versus other systems that monitor the opener instead of the garage door position.

How It works

Image: How it Works
  1. Activate your opener from most Apple or Android smart devices by accessing the Genie Aladdin Connect app (download through Google Play or App Store).
  2. Your smart device will send an electronic communication to the internet cloud.
  3. Your home router will then receive this communication and pass it via Wi-Fi to the Door Control Module (DCM), which is connected to the opener.
  4. The DCM then communicates to the Door Position Sensor (DPS) mounted on the door via Bluetooth Technology.
  5. Within seconds the DPS returns information back through the system to your smart device.

This worked easily for my garage which came with Genie garage lift system. This is so cool, the installation was just a breeze. You can control your garage literally from anywhere that has data connectivity, Its totally worth investing. Just a peace of mind knowing the status of the garage door, getting alerts when it opens and closes, so it can be monitored closely. Would totally recommend this product if you are looking for a remote garage door opener that can be accessed from anywhere, with a garage door sensor to indicate the status of the door.

From the ease of setup to the functionality of the device, I can highly recommend this device. I am no handyman, yet had no issue setting up and installing this device. I was thinking of purchasing a more advanced garage door opener in my home that had these features, but this does everything I needed.

This product is terrific...

This product is terrific. I previously used another Internet-based garage opener before but kept losing connection to the Internet. The Aladdin Connect is fool-proof. It works like a charm. It is easy to setup and install.

Debra J. Fuller | November 19, 2016

Great product and does exactly what it is designed to do...

Great product and does exactly what it is designed to do. It does take some careful reading of the installation literature and watching the company installation video. However after it's installed it woks every time. Now when I'm away from home I can simply look at my phone to ensure our garage doors are closed. The pop-up door operating notices are great to let us know when the doors are opened or closed. I can also use my phone to open/close the doors when I need to allow someone access to my garage or home when I'm away. That is a really great benefit.

Love it. I like the alert when my family open[s] and close[s] the door. I know (they're) off safe and the history is nice too.

Amy, at customer support, was terrific...

Genie Aladdin WiFi door attendant works great. Install was easy. I did however call the help desk number which is listed on the install instructions. Amy, at customer support, was terrific at walking me through the actual setup to get the built in logic working correctly. It's all there and works terrific!

Great product...

Great product. Just follow the YouTube installation video for the quickest install, takes about 30 mins total. I bought this to give me a piece of mind that my condo's garage was closed.

So far I love this thing. Love the way you can see when the door is open and closed so you can tell if someone is home or has left.
