Garageio is a Wi-Fi-based smart garage door opener.
Alottazs Labs says its Garageio will work with almost all existing openers, dating back to the 1980s. It controls one door out of the box, but it can manage up to three doors with additional hardware.
Hardware install involves running some wires around your garage, but it isn't too cumbersome.
A pair of sensors included with the device let you monitor open and closed status.
You map your phone to the hub and your Wi-Fi network via a flashing light on the main Garageio unit. It also supports Android.
The opener wire connections use an industry standard that makes them broadly compatible.
Garageio uses a simple AC adapter for power that connects to a standard power outlet.
From what I saw, the iOS app looked intuitive and simple. Garageio says this will be a key differentiator in a market that is starting to see activity from a few different vendors.
