Genie garage door openers are compatible with BILT 3D Interactive App

Install Genie Garage Door Openers With Ease by Downloading the BILT 3D Interactive App

Many homeowners have been stuck in the situation where your 15-year-old garage door opener gives up the ghost. You feel stuck between calling a garage door service company then waiting to see how much the quote is for replacement or going to a home improvement store and getting your DIY on! For those of us that feel DIY inclined you feel empowered about the thought of a job well done. Then you open the package to realize the instructions recommend this as a two-person installation and can take up to four hours. You still think to yourself that, “I can do this, when I need help, I will just need to call in a favor and have my buddy here to help me.” As you open the box, you see an installation poster, an owner’s manual, the color-coded parts bag, and start with step 1. As you begin assembly you realize that going back and forth between watching the Genie installation YouTube videos on your phone and reading the installation poster you are actually taking more time to read and watch videos over actually installing the Genie garage door opener. You then notice a QR Code sticker on the garage door openers’ box that states “BILT 3D interactive Intelligent Instructions® that are both voice & text guided”.

You quickly think this may do the trick and free up some time. You quickly download the BILT app, scan the QR code, and boom you’re into the BILT interactive instructions for your new Genie garage door opener. As you begin to watch the BILT Interactive Instructions you will notice how much easier technology can make the install process! The BILT App also tells you ahead of time for each step what tool to grab, and shows you in detail, with zoom-in and pause & play options available. As you continue on, you realize you have cut your time in nearly ¾ from when you originally started.

After finishing up the install in an hour and a half, you think to yourself, man they said 2-4 hours estimate with 2 people, I just knocked this out in an hour and a half, on my own with basic hand tools and a ladder!
