Loved the functionality of the opener but it never really fit well. It fell out once and I was able to recover it but the second time it was lost. So here I am buying a new one three months later.
My first unit turned out to be incompatible with a specific generation of Genie opener. Initially, email support was not responsive, but they were great on the phone, and quickly shipped out a new unit with updated firmware. I was able to program the opener and the Genie was able to pair with it, and now it works as advertised.
Super convenient product! I can't use MyQ on my phone when I get back from sweaty rides b/c of the touchscreen, and the Doormate is so much simpler.
I thought I remembered reading that Craftsman and Chamberlain were the same manufacturer. And this in if fact worked out for me and synced using the Chamberlain code (2 presses to program this remote) Pretty cool and pretty convenient. I will be anxious to see what battery life I get after reading that other review.
Also, since I just put on new bar tape a few days ago, I did not use the provided rim mounting pieces. I just pressed the main body into my taped handlebar end and it was plenty snug.
This is the best new cycling innovation!!! No longer have to carry remote or get the phone app to open garage.
Super easy to set up and I have it on my mtb as well. Works from 150-200ft as well. I can start rolling on my block and open the garage. It will be open bu the time I get close and I can shelter right away from the Heat!!
I bought this on a whim after stumbling on it and it is a pretty amazing product. May seem like a little thing, but not having to stop at the keypad is way more of a luxury than I was expecting. The design is super sleek too, you would just think it was a di2 junction box if you didn't know otherwise.
I did have issues getting it to connect and I contacted 12 Speed directly and they were super easy to work with and were able to help troubleshoot with no issues. Definitely recommend reaching out to them--I almost returned it after my first few attempts on my own and glad I didn't.
Overall, highly recommended.
Saw this on a social site, and went straight to the internet to buy it.!it came quick and I got it installed on my bars. It's such a first world luxury thing, but it's awesome to roll up after a ride and just cruise into the garage. Would recommend!
I always had to carry a garage door opener in one of jersey pockets when I left the house. Now with this opener on the end of handle bars it's one less thing to carry in my pocket. Works great, easy to program and easy to install. I really like it!
Works great and very easy to setup but, and this is entirely on me for not checking first, it's not necessarily compatible with all handlebars (Enve SES Aero Road Handlebar in my case). No problem though, gave it to a friend to enjoy. :)
Programming was pretty easy and I haven't had any issues with reception. Installation suggests removing and reinstalling your bar tape, but I made it work without retaping. Overall it's a neat little device that saves the hassle of keying in my code to the garage door after a long ride.
No matter what battery, it runs out ~2 weeks.... I have no habit to change garage door remote battery every 2 weeks.
