Using an app to control and monitor your garage door just makes sense. The technology is there and your phone is always on you, so why not take advantage of them both? You can check on the status of your door and close it if someone has left it open, give access to visitors and employees and keep an eye on who's coming and going with automated notifications that you can also curate to your liking.
Our App has been around for a while now, so when the time came to upgrade it, we listened to feedback and made some tweaks that improved the user experience. The app is clearly laid out, making it simpler to use, and it's quicker too!
For existing users, the new App will automatically migrate from the old App; you don't need to download a separate App.
We’ve created a brief Q&A below, to help you understand the benefits of the app and how it can give you complete control over your garage doors and gates.
What is it?
The app acts as your silent alarm with instant notifications alerting you whenever your door is in use, open for an extended period or if your opener is due for a service.
An activity log shows usage history on the App so that you know who has operated your garage door, and when.
You have total control to operate and check on your garage door at all times (WiFi connection dependent). You can also grant full or temporary access for family, friends and deliveries, or remove access at the click of a button.
Voice control is there for you. Use the hands-free function to control your garage door with your chosen voice assistant - Siri Shortcuts, Alexa or Google Home.
Camera surveillance can be included. Pair your App and Dominator Cameras for convenient and thorough home safety. Gives you full control to monitor access to your home, whether you’re there or not!
How does it work?
The app works in tandem with your Dominator Garage Door Opener to operate the garage door and monitor the garage door via push notifications sent to your phone.
Who can use it?
Multiple users can operate from one app, with the owner controlling the level of accessibility for each user. Different hubs can also be set up, effectively creating groups of users for each situation, eg a hub for your home and another for your business. Anyone with a compatible smartphone can become a user.
What are some of the differences to the new App?
- An improved user interface with larger buttons and a whole new look & feel
- The user navigation has been improved to be easier and more intuitive
- The app is faster to use
- The set-up process has been improved on the app and is easier to follow.
