Ascend makes your garage door smart
Wanna make your garage door smart but you got an old school garage door opener?
Well, there's a solution.
Quirky Plus GE has the Ascend.
This is a garage door smart enabler.
You plug this into your garage door.
It works with most garage doors according to Quirky.
And you control it via this app that runs on your phone.
It's the Wink app.
The same one that Quirky has been using to connect its whole landscape of smart home products.
You can monitor it remotely and you can use it from your smartphone you can open it anywhere outside your home or even anywhere in the world to let people in and it works via the same link app that all of the other Quirky GE products connect to.
So it is meant to integrate into that same Smarthome hub that you can access with all these different products.
And connect to various robot actions and connected smart chain events.
So 90 bucks.
Connects to your garage.
And that's the cool thing about a latest products is that they can work with things that you already own.
But make sure you check to make sure compatibility in case you're curious about what type of garage doors this will work with.
I'm Scott Stein and that's it.
That's the Ascend and it sits in the back and lets your garage door work.
