It all started when one of our team members got his house broken-in through the garage door access while he was on a long vacation. Since the garage door was his main home entrance, he wondered "Why isn't there a way to ensure the safety of my house through monitoring and remote accessing the garage?"
Since then the team put in countless hours of hard work to develop something that is nowhere seen before in the marketplace. We would love to share this precious piece of work with you!
The Garager is a visual controller for garage openers that allow users to Live monitor the garage, open and close garage door remotely and receive real time notifications whenever sound or motion is detected.
Key Features and Functions
Feel Always Protected with Live Monitoring and Remote Control
With Garager, simply enjoy the satisfaction of constantly knowing whats going on in your garage, total transparency! Moreover, since Garager is connected with your garage door opener, you could easily remote control it through the Garager App.
Let Your Garage Work For You with Geo-Fencing
Garager will become the best alternative to your garage door controller. With geo-fencing set up, the garage knows whenever and wherever you are near the house. It will act upon your request to react to your arrival. Imagine that, having your garage welcome you home from a long day of work!
On the Go Mobile Application
Never Miss Anything with Cloud Storage and Video Playback
With a minimal monthly subscription fee, enjoy the fact that all your video footage will be securely stored by us. View playbacks of videos up to 7 days. You could still buy and use a micro SD card for storage, but they do run out pretty fast!

Additional to the live video streaming, Garager has the ability to detect unexpected sound or motion. With the sensitivity level set, you could track motions as small as items dropping from shelves to as big as intruders entering the garage.

Garager works with most Garage Door Openers straight out of the box. Some newer openers, however, will require an accessory.
Alcidae will send a confirmation email to help you identify if your opener requires this accessory. If your opener requires it, we’ll be happy to include it for free with your new device.
We will start our shipment at the beginning of November, 2017. All backers will receive their rewards either November or December this year. (Holiday season!) If there are any changes to the plan, although we highly doubt any, we will for sure contact you about the changes as soon as possible.

Risks and challenges
SUPPLY CHAIN RISK
We have had an ongoing relationship with our supplier, currently situated in Shenzhen China, since the year 2016. With a designated project manager overseeing the entire cooperation and manufacturing process, the risk of manufacturing delay due to issues within the supply chain is significantly lowered.
