Urc and Genie Deliver Greater Peace-Of-Mind With New Home Technology Integration

Opening and closing your garage door should be done with ease, peace-of-mind, and control.  Aladdin Connect® smart phone technology allows you to do all three of these and more.   By adding an Aladdin Connect retro-fit kit to an existing compatible garage door opener, or upgrading to a Genie® garage door opener powered by Aladdin Connect, you'll have full use of features, like you've never had before.  Aladdin Connect not only allows you to use your smart phone as a remote, but you also receive real-time notifications and alerts on when and if your garage door opened or closed.  For those times when you are away, and have a service repair worker, or the dog sitter who needs to let your precious pup out, you can invite, and add up to 19 additional users and provide access to your garage.  All of these innovative smart features built into the technology of one product, and it makes it even smarter when your garage can integrate with your favorite smart home partners.  At it again with another addition, today we offer a new phase of integration, with our newest smart home partner, URC, a global leader in smart home automation and control for residential and commercial applications.

URC and Genie have created the first integration between Total Control, URC’s award-winning residential and commercial automation platform, and Genie’s powerful Aladdin Connect system. Genie’s full line of Wi-Fi enabled garage door openers can now be controlled via URC’s one-touch, voice control and mobile app.


With URC’s use of geofencing, homeowners can automate several actions that offer peace-of-mind when entering or leaving garages. URC’s Total Control® and Genie’s Aladdin Connect® systems can be integrated to automatically open as the homeowner nears or closes when leaving the property. Also, notifications can be triggered if the garage is prevented from closing or opened unexpectedly.


Key benefits include:

  • Peace-of-mind from Anywhere - Check if the garage doors are closed, and open or close them from any room with Total Control and URC controllers
  • Simplified Home Automation - Secure the entire home with a tap or voice command by creating home automation Scenes. Example scenes include a “Leave Home” or “Goodnight” scene that would close the garage doors, lock the front door, turn off lights, and adjust the thermostat.
  • Voice/Hands-free Control - URC’s voice commands through Alexa or Google Home feature enables garage access as well as all other smart home features.
  • Unified Remote Control - Use URC’s Total Control system for all-in-one control of the entire smart home -- lighting, thermostats, locks, Genie garage door openers, security cameras, and more.

Headquartered in Harrison NY USA, URC is a global leader in smart home automation and control solutions. URC technology is respected for unsurpassed performance and reliability with over 100 million remote controls sold in the past 10 years alone. URC control systems include Total Control®, MX HomePro® and Complete Control®. Innovative URC user interfaces include tabletop controllers, in-wall touchscreens, handheld remotes, keypads and mobile apps – plus voice control integration with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. URC systems are custom designed, installed and maintained by a network of URC trained systems integration professionals.

With this new integration, the future of smart garage access is bright with additional automation technological advancements on the horizon.
