For this to more effective - Apple’s Carplay and Android Auto - is becoming required. New reules are being passed that you can’t hold a mobile device in your hand while driving - so it really needs a Carplay and Android Auto App… - This will kill your sales once that is understood - however, On the plus side - it should rocket yours sales being one of the only devices out there with that function.

So how is it looking to have it available in CarPlay in the next month or two? I need to know because I want to get another one of your devices but I’m not getting invest in it unless it works on CarPlay.

It’s unlikely to become available in next two month. At this time we are working on the new features that will benefit all Garadget users and then we’ll reassign the resources owards the wish list of smaller user groups.

Although there is no native app at this time, you may already be able to use Garadget with in your car via the web interface, Alexa/Google Home integration, IFTTT, Home Automation integrations etc.

FWIW, Homekit integration can be achieved (see this post HomeKit Integration with Homebridge-Garadget Plugin). Then you can use Siri from your iPhone/Apple Watch to open the door. I don’t have carplay, but if it supports Siri I would guess this should work as well. HTH

My anticipation will be that i will have ios 13 with home. And i can use my carplay to open my garage

Using my homekit plugin for garadget and ios 13 you will be able to open your garage. This is a simple explanation that requires more effort then you are looking for. But it is possible.

Just tried it

Dwight if you look at my response to ERIC under the header SIRI OPERATION you’ll find a better way than CarPlay using IFTTT … check it out … Its been working great for me.

Thank you - I will try it …

Ok Thank you

I want to take just a second to thank everybody for their suggestions and work arounds. The fundamental question that has been answered is: Is why? Or chat while I appreciate your ability to go into my phone I have alerts on my iWatch - Are nice to haves… - why design a garage door opener that does not work in a Car based environment ( like Android auto and/or CarPlay - that’s first place to go… Right !!! Honestly what am I missing here?
