Two of Garadget’s primary functions are control and monitoring:
- Garadget controls your existing garage door opener by acting as a computer controlled wall button
- It monitors the status of the door by detecting the presence of the reflective tag with its laser sensor
To receive commands and report status Garadget connects to your home WiFi router. Remote clients such as mobile apps communicate with it via its cloud server while home automation hubs can talk with Garadget directly on the local network.
Garadget can be controlled from multiple client devices including iOS, Android Apps, web interface, smart speakers, home automation hubs etc.
