We got inspired from our neighbours and their continuous pain with their Garage Door Remotes. After seeing them losing, or breaking their garage door remotes, having to duplicate them for their family or friends or even continuously changing them from car to car to get access to their garage, we came up with this idea. Giving an easy solution to open your garage with something you always have with you, that also should be very reliable and resistant and of course easy to use. The answer was simple: Your Smartphone.

Nos inspiramos en nuestros vecinos, y sus continuos problemas con los mandos de garaje. Luego de escuchar quejas sobre que han perdido o roto sus mandos, tener que hacer varias copias para familiares y amigos, o inclusive estar cogiendo el mando cada vez que van de un coche a otro para poder entrar a sus plazas de garaje. Nos planteamos dar una solución facil que siempre la tengas contigo, al mismo tiempo sea confiable y duradera, y por sobre todo facil de usar. La respuesta fue muy sencilla: el móvil.

In an effort to be transparent and open we have provided a detailed production and fulfillment plan for both the hardware side and the software side of the Garage Beacon project.

 

We made so easy, that all of our initial customers installed it by themselves in less than 5 minutes. Simply connect the unit to the wall push-button terminals of your Garage Door Opener, and that's it! You are ready to enjoy it.

Just like every Bluetooth device, just plug in the unit, tap scan from the app, and type in the attached master pin. That's it!

Forget about expending time and tons of money in remote copies for you, your family or friends. Now you through our app you can generate or remove access to the people you want, when you want. The result, more money in your pocket and more time to spend in things you want.

  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • iBeacon technology
  • 100 foot operating range
  • Universal AC/DC power adaptor
  • Reed switch proximity sensor

Risks and challenges

As we are offering a technology product, the main risk is the production, manufacture and delivery time. But, we mitigate this risk working with our past providers. On the other hand we have the apps development, for mitigating this we are working not with one developer, but with a team of Apps developers. Where they have a person specialized in any aspect related to the App creation (Programing, UX and UI).

If any thing of this to delays, we will notify immediately to you and take actions: Use our back up manufacturers or developers.
