It's becoming easier, and more affordable, than ever to turn your house into a smart home. Smart plugs and smart bulbs are perfect for inside the home, but you don't have to leave your garage out of the equation. The Meross Smart Wi-Fi Garage Door Opener Remote (opens in new tab) was designed to attach to your existing garage door opener and allows you to begin controlling it with an app on your phone.
While it normally sells for $39.99, right now you can pick up the Meross Smart Garage Door Opener Remote on sale at Amazon for only $26.79 (opens in new tab) when you clip the coupon on its product page and then use promo code GYG2X33V during checkout. That saves you just over $13 off its regular cost.
By adding this smart device to your existing garage door opener, you gain tons of smart features, including the ability to open and close the door using an app on your phone from anywhere in the world. It also offers smart notifications and more. It requires a 2.4GHz Wi-Fi connection and is compatible most garage door openers out there, though you can check the company's site to ensure you can use it with your current garage door hardware.
The install is simple as your order includes everything you need to get it hooked up. In just a few minutes you can take one of the most basic features of your home and make it that much smarter. It's even capable of being controlled with your voice and a compatible voice assistant. The Meross opener works with Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa (opens in new tab), IFTTT, along with Android and iOS apps, so you can incorporate it into your smart home in a myriad of ways.
Existing owners review this smart device highly, leaving it with a collective rating of 4.4 out of 5 stars (opens in new tab) based on over 2,500 reviews at Amazon. Shipping is free, though you'd receive your order even faster with an Amazon Prime membership. If you're not a member already, consider starting a free 30-day trial (opens in new tab) to score free two-day shipping, exclusive members-only discounts, and more.
I own this and it works flawlessly. Well worth it.
Does it do geofencing?
I don't believe it does. I never checked. However, you can use it with Tasker.
If you're an Amazon Prime member and missed this deal or aren't in a hurry or are cheap, Amazon sometimes sells the similar MyQ garage door opener for free or negative to Prime members. I got paid $14 to get it (on sale for $16 up front but with a $30 Amazon credit towards future purchases). Since then I've seen it free (credits matching the purchase price). Amazon gives them away to get customers to switch to in-garage delivery which I had to do at least twice to get the credit. If you don't want Amazon to deliver to your garage you can stop that after using the credit.
