The Genie Company Partners With Texas Instruments on New Remote Access Garage Door Controller
Garage door manufacturer The Genie Company rolled out a new WiFi-enabled garage door controller, developed in conjunction with Texas Instruments (TI). The Aladdin Connect allows users to gain remote access of their garage door system as well as change the open/close position of the door via a smart device.
The Aladdin Connect system incorporates TI’s SimpleLink WiFi CC3200 wireless MCU, which can be used in conjunction with, or in place of, the standard wall console depending on what is most convenient for the user, The Genie Company explained. A sensor placed on the door will notify the user if there is a change in position of the garage door, giving homeowners an added layer of security.
"We are excited about this new product and its potential for homeowner satisfaction," said Dickson. "Having partnered with Texas Instruments, we know that this is a product that anyone with a smart device will be able to enjoy for years to come."
