We've been quoted for a new garage door. It is a standalone garage so we requested the quote included a keypad to go on the outside of the garage so we can open it from the outside without a remote.


As an alternative they suggested considering something called OmGate which enables toy to use your smartphone as a remote, so then I requested that they quote us both options.


The OmGate is considerably cheaper ($87 +GST) than the keypad ($210 +GST).


Has anyone got this OmGate thing that they can let me know if it is any good?





How much is  the double/single garage door theses days now ?

Hi Rob, Thanks for the info. This is cool. but I like to try the omgate one as it has a different approach. IP based openers I normally done with alarm system or IP intercoms.
