Ratings and Reviews
How many times have you left your house, then awhile later couldn’t remember if you actually closed the garage door in your frantic haste to leave for wherever you needed to be on time? Have you ever turned around and drove back to check after calling family, friends, and neighbors who you hoped were still home and could peek out their window to check? How many times did you actually find the door wide open when you got back? Or more frustratingly, how many times did you find that your paranoia wasn’t needed because the door was actually closed?
Well, I had driven myself crazy experiencing all of those scenarios over the years, but no more. For the past 3 or so years, my WiFi-enabled LiftMaster has allowed me to rid myself of all that paranoia, and then some. Not only do I get alerts every time the door goes up or down, letting me know when family members come and go, but I’ve been able to remotely open the door when I couldn’t be there to let service or delivery people into my house to do work or drop off packages and such. The same goes for relatives coming in from out of town, or leaving to go home. I’ve even opened it from Croatia, half way around the world from where I live in Northern California. My LiftMaster is a mind-saver, plain and simple.
Not always reliable
I own the LiftMaster garage door opener for approximately 8 months, and it works fine. However, the App is the problem.
In theory, the concept is amazing — to open your garage door remotely. However, if it would be more reliable, then it would be worthy of more stars. There is a glitch that doesn’t always alert you when the door has either opened or closed, causing you to panic if you are away from your home and see one alert without the other. The second glitch causes an error message that doesn’t allow you to close the door and forces you to “reset” it by manually pushing the Liftmaster button. Well, if you are remote, there is no way to manually reset it, so your garage door remains open while you are not home. The third glitch keeps you waiting in permanent hourglass mode until the app times out so you are unable to open or close the door.
Please update the app to fix these bugs. It needs to be more reliable > 60% of the time. The 40% of the failures can be detrimental if you are not home to do the fixes that are required.
Remote Access Very Useful
We have 2 garage door openers and a gate opener. When we first installed these about 6 months ago I was just looking for reliable equipment and thought the remote control through the AP feature was a joke. I was thinking “come on, does your garage opener really need to be hooked up to the internet “. What will they think of next - a toilet you can flush from a 1,000 miles away.
Well, was I wrong. About a month after installing this equipment I decided to get the AP going. It turns out to be a very useful feature. We travel a lot and for the last 3 months we have been doing a lot of remodeling at that house. I can’t tell you how many times I have opened the gate and garage doors for workmen from 300 miles away. Every night I can check to see if everything has been closed and locked up. The AP also alerts me if I forget to close the gate or garage doors at night. A really nice safety feature. Bottom line is that it works reliably and has turned out to be one of the most useful pieces of home automation that we have.
