The Genie Aladdin Connect®: Make Your Garage As Smart As Your Home

Have you ever returned home after a long road trip visiting family and friends for the holidays – car packed full of presents, kids asleep in their seats – only to find your garage door standing wide open and all of your possessions unprotected? You forgot to close the door as you were leaving…three days earlier. Your holiday cheer instantly disappears, giving way to a feeling of hollow vulnerability, embarrassment, and anger. Don’t you wish there was a way to check the status of your garage door while you were traveling, just to be sure it was closed and your home secure? Now there is with adding the Genie Aladdin Connect® to your current garage door opener system.

Smart Technology for Smart Homeowners

The Genie Aladdin Connect add on kit will make your garage as smart as your home. Monitor, open, and close your garage door with a smartphone or smart device! An intuitive app interface allows users to open and close the garage door remotely, receive notifications if the garage door is opened, and provide access for delivery personnel or authorized users at the press of a button. Aladdin Connect provides complete control of your garage door from anywhere. What could you do with that level of control?

5 Things You Can Do with Your Aladdin Connect

1. Know when your teens make curfew…and when they don’t.

No more waiting up at night or listening for that squeaky floorboard on the stairs. The Aladdin Connect app can tell you exactly when your teen gets home, sending a notification to your phone as the garage door opens so you can be waiting in the living room to hear all about their “big” night. Using a sensor attached to the garage door, the Door Control Module monitors the garage door’s position, allowing you to be alerted when the door opens or closes – electronically or manually. (Aladdin Connect Add-On Device only)

2. Let Grandma in, but keep thieves out.

Grandma can use her phone to get in to feed Mittens and change his litter box while you and your family enjoy the beach life. Just send Grandma her invitation through the Aladdin Connect app and enjoy worry-free vacation time. Authorize access to your garage for relatives and friends while you are away, and view a detailed history of who has opened or closed the door on any given day. You can also set the time length of access for each user, and their virtual key will expire in an hour, a day, a month, or whatever time frame you set.

3. Keep your new flat screen TV safe from the elements.

That new television you ordered won’t fare so well in the torrential downpour predicted for this afternoon. Why not have the delivery person place it inside the garage? Provide instant access for anyone such as delivery or repair persons, relatives, or friends, even while you are stuck at the office. Simply open the door with your smartphone app, so you don't have to provide a temporary access password.

4. Embrace your inner “Dad” personality and quit heating the whole neighborhood.

Are you tired of losing heating and cooling efficiency through that giant gaping doorway in your garage? Set your garage door to close after a certain amount of time, keeping heating and cooling in your home and bugs and rodents out. Aladdin Connect lets you set a timer for the door to automatically close after a set time-frame of being continually open, improving utilities efficiency and guarding against unwanted visitors.

5. Make sure you never lose your holiday cheer by forgetting about your garage door again.

Use Aladdin Connect to set your door to automatically close at any time each day. It can be hard to ensure the last person using it closed the garage door. The Aladdin Connect app allows you to set a time for the garage door to close each night, ensuring you never return home from a road trip to an open door again.  

    The Genie Aladdin Connect App and Door Control Module makes your garage door opener work for you, anywhere and anytime.

    The Door Control Module acts as the smart hub that activates your garage door opener, using your home WiFi network to connect virtually to the Aladdin Connect app. The Aladdin Connect app is available for iOS and Android devices, syncing your phone or tablet to the Door Control Module. The Door Control Module is direct-wired to the garage door opener and connects to the Door Position Sensor via Bluetooth Technology.

    Additional Features and Benefits Include:

    • Customizable Solutions for Most Applications - The Aladdin Connect App and Door Control Module work with most garage door openers manufactured after 1993 (not just Genie brand), and can monitor up to 3 separate garage doors with a single module (additional door position sensors sold separately). The system is also programmable to operate with the Iris® Home Automation system, and you may be able to retrofit the system to your existing garage opener, making installation quick and simple.
    • The Aladdin Connect Security Advantage (add on kit only)– The Door Control Module uses a sensor attached to the garage door itself so that even if the door is disengaged from the door opener for manual opening, the sensor will activate a notification in the app. Instantly know that someone is operating your garage door, whether the person is an authorized user or not.
    • Enhanced Safety Alarms - The Genie Aladdin Connect system is UL 325 compliant, emitting audible and visual signals before the garage door moves, providing protection for family and pets during door operation.

    The Aladdin Connect System is available from a variety of major retailers and dealers across the United States and is backed by the Genie name. Genie has a over 60 years of dependability, high quality, and nationwide customer support, manufacturing remote-controlled garage door opening systems and accessories for multiple distribution channels. The Aladdin Connect system is the latest in smart home automation to increase the security, efficiency, and convenience of your garage door opener.
