Does anyone have a Smart Garage Door opener?


Looking for any advice on them


I was looking at a Tailwind iQ3, anyone have one?


I have a Dominator sdo-2-v2 opener - which I am hoping will be fine...


Thanks in advance for any advice

I just finished installing a Meross smart wifi garage door opener. Took around 30 minutes to install all up. Cost was around $55 for homekit version delivered or $45 for non homekit version. I am currently running it via Homekit but will be integrating it with home assistant greenbox shortly.

It works really well. I purchased it from aliexpress 2 weeks ago and it arrived on last Friday.

Do whatever you want to do man.

If you are using Home Assistant, them OpenGarage is a good option.

Same As above. I use a Shelly1, powered from 12v output on the garage opener motor. I’ve also run a reed switch to monitor the open/close status and have it integrated into Home Assistant.

I have had a Tailwind IQ3 for about a year. I'm really happy with it. Was very easy to install.


Occasionally it doesn't open when getting home, but a restart of the app on my iPhone sorts it.
