Genie's Aladdin Connect® Smart Garage Door Openers Earn the Works with Alexa Certification

Genie Earns Works with Alexa Certification

Control Your Genie Garage Door Opener with Alexa Smart Home Skills

Genie Aladdin Connect Plus Alexa Certification

The Genie Company, the most recognized brand in garage door openers, has announced the integration with Alexa Smart Home Skills and has received Works with Alexa Certification for the Aladdin Connect garage opener. Works with Alexa is Amazon’s certification program that raises the bar on responsiveness, reliability, and functionality, ensuring customers have the best smart home experience.  Given that the majority of single-family homeowners with garages use the garage as the primary access point for the home, a voice interface to open or close the door and check whether the door is open or closed simplifies the user experience for leaving and returning home.

 

 

 With the new Aladdin Connect smart home skill for Amazon Alexa, customers can now user their voice to control Aladdin Connect garage opener by speaking commands directly to Alexa. For example, instead of saying “Alexa, ask Aladdin Connect to open my garage, customers may now just ask “Alexa, open my garage door”. To take advantage of the new smart home skills, existing customers will need to enable the new Aladdin Connect smart home skill, which may require the customers to re-link the Aladdin Connect account.

What is Alexa?: Alexa is the cloud-based voice service from Amazon. Alexa is the brain behind Amazon Echo and other Alexa built-in devices. Using Alexa is as simple as asking a question—just ask, and Alexa will respond instantly. Amazon Alexa lives in the cloud and is always getting smarter, delivering new capabilities to devices automatically. The more you use Alexa, the more Alexa adapts to your speech patterns, vocabulary, and answer questions, play music, hear the news, get weather and traffic preferences, with new features continually being added.

Aladdin Connect®

The Genie Company has a full line of reliable, ultra-quiet, and powerful Wi-Fi enabled garage door openers.  The Aladdin Connect garage door system gives you the ability to monitor, open and close your garage door with your smartphone or smart device from anywhere in the world.

For those customers that do not have a Wi-Fi enabled garage door opener, Genie has developed an affordable retrofit product that can turn many standard garage door openers into a smart opener.  The Aladdin Connect retrofit product works with most brands’ garage door openers manufactured after 1993 and are equipped with photo eye safety sensors.

If you want the peace of mind that comes from staying connected to your home wherever you are, Aladdin Connect and the Amazon Alexa are the perfect answer.

Aladdin Connect is available now through select retailers and installers. Amazon, The Home Depot, NewEgg, Walmart, Google Express, and Genie’s website.

    I am trying to add Close My Garage door to my Alexa routine for “Goodnight” where my doors lock and certain lights do certain things … I cannot figure out how to add "close garage door’ to my “Goodnight” routine, can you provide guidance?

    @ Shawn Roth- When this is happening check to see if Aladdin Connect is working on the Aladdin App. If it is, we would recommend uninstalling and reinstalling the Aladdin skill in Alexa.

    I have enabled this, and it worked well for a day or so, but since then when I attempt to close it, the garage door does close, but after 60 seconds or so, Alexa pipes up and says she can’t communicate with the garage door. I don’t believe it is a WIFI issue on my end, as I don’t remember having these issues when I had to use the long form commands. I will say…this is SO much better and doesn’t make me feel like a complete idiot when i ask for the garage door to be opened or closed.

    Will the same update be coming to Google Home? Where instead of saying “Hey Google, ask Aladdin Connect to open my garage, you could just ask “hey Google, open my garage door”.
