Opening the garage door with a smartphone

Smart Home solutions for garage door operators from SOMMER

Smart Home connects state-of-the-art household electronics to allow remote control via the Internet. You can network various devices and control them via your smartphone. You can also use a tablet or PC. If you have a garage for your vehicle, you can install an electronic garage door operator.

When you drive up in your car, you use an app for door operators to open the garage door. Once you have parked your vehicle in the garage, you can close the door again in the same way. Far more convenient than having to open and close the garage door manually. No effort required, and in bad weather, no need to get out of your vehicle. A further advantage is that you can check via the app at any time whether your garage door really is securely closed.

How can I control my garage door via Smart Home?

The intelligent SOMweb solution for garage door operators consists of a control unit which you need to connect to your garage door operator. The control unit connects to an app, which you can install on your smartphone or tablet free of charge.

Alternatively, you can control the door operator via your PC using a web browser. To open or close the garage door, open the app and activate the corresponding control unit. You can open the garage door while you are still in the hall, getting ready to leave, or as you drive up to the garage.

A Smart Home solution for garage door operators is also suitable for commercial applications. You can control up to ten gate or door operators and control access conveniently via user management.

Security of the data is ensured

The integrated server stores all data on the SOMweb. No user data are stored on external servers, which are a potential target for hackers due to their high data volumes. This means your data are optimally protected against hackers. Communication between SOMweb and operator is via SOMloq2 radio control system with 128-bit AES encryption. Push messages on garage door movements and the optional video function ensure even greater security outside the visible range.
