You can easily make your ARD garage door opener smart
Luckily you don't necessarily have to buy a new opener to have a smart garage opener. You can simply install Remootio, a small hardware add-on to make your existing garage door opener smart. Remootio needs to be wired to the control board of your existing ARD garage door opener and it can connect to your smart home hub and smartphone via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
After installing Remootio, you'll be able to:
- Use your smartphone to control your garage door via Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or over the Internet.
- Check if your garage door is open or closed.
- Use Amazon Alexa, Google Home or Samsung SmartThings to operate the garage door.
- Check who opened or closed the garage door.
- Use your Apple Watch and Siri Shortcuts to operate your garage doors.
- Send virtual keys to your family, friends, guests or your gardener and revoke their access rights anytime.
- Open the garage door automatically as you arrive home (geofencing).
- Schedule when the garage door should automatically open and close.
- A working garage door opener
- A Remootio unit
- A small cross head screw driver
- A wiring diagram for easy installation

The necessary wires and sensor parts are included in the kit.
To power the Remootio unit, you can use the included wall mount AC adapter or you can use one of the adapters below if you don't have a wall socket near your garage door opener:
If you have multiple garage doors, you'll need to install one Remootio unit for each garage door and you'll be able to control all of your ARD openers from the same app.
