Garadget interferes with opener's wireless remotes


#1

I have installed 3 Garadgets in my garage and all 3 work fine with the Garadget app. The problem is they now interfere with the original LiftMaster remote controls and the Homelink controls in our cars. It is rather inconvenient having to always use my phone to open and close the doors. I have disconnected the usb on one of the devices and both the remote and homelink are functioning properly again.

To resolve this please move Garadget(s) a bit further from the opener’s own antenna.

Thank you! I’m going to give this a try, as I have the same problem and it’s been driving my wife and I crazy.

I moved the garadget about 18" away from the opener/antenna and it completely fixed my issues with my regular wireless remotes and homelinks. Yay!!

How far does the garadget device need to be away from the antennas to not interfere? I have moved it to the other end of the opener, but it still doesn’t work. If I go further, then I will have to build a some sort new mounting device to hold the garadget, which doesn’t seem to be a good solution.

Usually just couple of inches do it. Have you confirmed that it’s the Garadget that is the source of the interference? No new LED bulbs in the garage?
