MOUNT HOPE, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Genie Company announces that its Aladdin Connect® smart garage door openers and controllers have become even smarter. Aladdin Connect is now compatible with two of the most popular smart home platforms, Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.
Genie’s award-winning Aladdin Connect app already provides many great features that make the lives of homeowners more secure and convenient, such as time-based rules and virtual keys that provide access to friends, family or service personnel.
By adding Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa to its technical capabilities, homeowners can now use their favorite home automation device with the Aladdin Connect garage door opener platform. As part of continual innovative development, Aladdin Connect has recently been integrated into many Genie garage door openers. In addition, Genie offers an Aladdin Connect stand-alone kit that can be added to most garage door openers produced after 1993, provided they have functional garage door safety sensors. This kit can virtually change an ordinary opener into a smart garage door opener. The Aladdin Connect app is free once you have the system. The app is available from Google Play® and the Apple® App Store.
“The integration of these platforms with our Aladdin Connect App brings our smart openers to a new level,” said Josh Funk, Residential Product Manager at Genie. “Homeowners have never been able to communicate and control their garage door openers in quite such a dynamic way. Genie is leading the way in this new and exciting part of the innovative American smart home.”
