Universal Garage Door Opener app

GarageMate on the App Store

GarageMate opens your garage using your iPhone.

The App requires purchase of a low cost GarageMate Receiver. You can buy the receiver from BlueMate.com. The receiver installs in minutes with only two wires to connect.

Even if someone else has the GarageMate App, they will not be able to open your garage without your permission. GarageMate now uses Bluetooth 4.0 (iPhone4s or later) which is the most secure consumer-based wireless protocol. You can also add several layers of password protection.

Compatible with Genie, Liftmaster, Chamberlain, Sears Craftsman, Raynor, Wayne-Dalton, Axis Cam, AccessMaster, Somfy... and ALL garage door openers built in the last 50 years that use a simple wall switch.

Thank you for choosing GarageMate.

Easy to install, works every time

When we replaced our old garage door opener with a new Genie Intellicode system, my family could never keep every remote, keypad, and Homelink in-car opener working consistently. It was driving us nuts! After looking at wi-fi systems, I decided not to be an "early adopter" of the new wifi-based "wireless home" garage door openers. I suspect every one will be just another headache, at best complicating the home network and at worst slowing the network speed. I think it's prudent to wait at least a couple of years and then re-assess the market. Plus, by then devices using Apple's own HomeKit should be widely available.

So I decided to go with a Bluetooth receiver. I chose GarageMate because the website clearly provided all the information I needed in the FAQs, the company has been around awhile, and the receiver works with just about every system, including my annoying Genie. On top of it all, the GarageMate receiver is relatively inexpensive.

As promised, the receiver was simple to install, and now the garage door opens and closes every time! I use Siri, my husband does not. Either way, the app works flawlessly. $50 well spent; all our problems solved.

Btw, I emailed the developer today with a suggestion and heard back within hours. Add good customer support to your "pros" column if you're trying to decide which system to install.

    • This video is great.  My problem was that the light didn't go to fast blinking based on the directions for my vehicle.  After watching the video, I got the idea to move closer and it worked like a charm!
