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.

  • Ability to monitor the door position (open or closed)and any change to the position whether it's done through the Aladdin Connect app or manually
  • Ability to know if an authorized user is operating the door with the Aladdin Connect app
  • Maintains access history report for each opener
  • UL 325 compliant - audible and visual signals before door moves when operated from smart device
  • One Door Control Module controls up to three doors while one Door Position Sensor is needed per door (one module and sensor come standard with kit; additional sensors sold separately)

New Time-Based Features

Genie's Aladdin Connect smart phone system that allows you to control and monitor your garage door now has several time features, making it an even more essential product to have for any smart garage.

The new features include:


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.


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.


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.

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.

Love it...

Love it. We are busy people that sometimes forget to shut the garage door behind us. Even more often we are the couple having the conversation of "Did I shut the door? I think I shut the door?" This thing stops all of that with a quick glimpse on your phone. You can see if it is open or shut and even open or shut it from anywhere.

Love this wireless, App run, garage door controller.

You can set up,through your App (Andriod for me), to close the garage door after a time (10 min) you pick so if you forget to close it,like I do, It will do it for you. You will receive notifications on your phone when the door opens or closes. It is comforting to be able to look on your cell and see the status of your door.

The devise is working great both through the app and the controller itself, I am very happy with the service and the products functionality.

Had a great conversation today with Brent from support, he walked me through the entire set up of my Genie Aladdin Connect devise with two doors. The devise is working great both through the app and the controller itself, I am very happy with the service and the products functionality. I will be looking to add another devise at my office and for may parents garage doors as well. Thanks again!

Awesome, now I can control and see if my garage door is open or closed. I have a habit of turning my car around just to check to see if my garage door is closed. Now I just whip out my phone.
