Hello All! First post, and glad to be here.
We recently purchased a house as an investment for AirBnB, and I’m currently installing all the smart gear I can get my hands on. I’m not gonna lie, I’m a bit of a tech-geek and this kind of automation is a lot of fun. I have lights, TV’s, and door locks reporting to a smartthings 3rd Gen Hub, and it seems to be working good enough so far. I have a geothermal furnace installed in the house and I’m hoping to be able to integrate it as well.
I want the garage door to work as smoothly as the door locks. I wish to be able to send my guests temporary PIN’s to use on a keypad or (preferably) phone app to open the garage door. I’ve searched here and I see this topic is not new, but most of the results I see are a couple of years old. I also found a recipe to use a smart door lock to send an open/close command to the garage door opener (which I’m not opposed to doing, as a last resort).
So, in a nut shell, who’s smart garage door openers are reliable and compliant with my system? I’d love to hear a fresh round of reviews.
