Do I have to buy extra equipment to make it a smart garage?
Yes, the ChainMax 1/2 HPC Durable Chain Drive Garage Door Opener with Battery Backup (geniecompany.com) requires adding the Aladdin Connect to upgrade the unit to use wifi (Smart Garage opener). Otherwise, you can purchase an opener that already has integrated wifi, a chain model would with integrated wifi would be the 2033 and belt models would be 3053 and 7155.
I installed a new Genie garage door opener and the remotes and wall control will not work.
