Safe - iOpener™ operates on “line of sight”. The ONLY safe way to operate garage doors, gates or similar equipment – it’s the way all automation manufacturers tell you in their safety instructions.
Simple - Once the iOpener™ is connected to the control connection on the device, you just plug in the transformer, download the App and follow the normal Bluetooth® pairing procedure that every smartphone user is already familiar with. The pairing screen will open directly from the App to make it even easier for you!
Watch the Installation video at http://goo.gl/HGEFzo or visit www.bluetechautomation.co.uk and see how easy it is to install and operate the iOpener™ on a garage door opener!
Secure - iOpener™ is protected by a 4 – 16 digit pin chosen by the user that can be changed at any time. After the first setup iOpener™ tells the user they must change the pin, so they always have their own unique pin and if they lose their phone it is easy to delete the pin and enter a new one from another phone.
Because iOpener™ operates using Bluetooth® there is no interference from other radio frequencies, a common issue with traditional radio frequency remotes.
Bluetooth® creates a direct link to your device, whereas Wi-Fi based systems generally use a server and other vulnerable components such as routers that are susceptible to being hacked or having downtime.
Les McLaren, International Sales Director for Bluetech Automation said:
“Having worked for over 27 years in the garage door and gate automation industry it was obvious when I was first shown the iOpener that it had (being a Bluetooth® enabled product) some clear benefits over Wi-Fi enabled products already in the marketplace, one of the key points being security.
“Our mantra “Safe – Simple – Secure” underscores what is needed when considering the requirements of both the user and installer. Because we paid attention to these three points IOpener has been well received by the trade with several distributors in the UK and across Europe already selling iOpener and many more committed to doing so as soon as our Apple iOS compatible model is available ”
Steve Szymke, one of the founders of Bluetech Automation in the USA said:
“We have been very fortunate to have teamed up with Les McLaren and his colleagues in the UK and Europe, it has given us product exposure and market penetration we could only have dreamed of when we set out to design and manufacture the iOpener.
“My thanks also go out to the Door Industry Journal who helped us with market information and put us in contact with potential business partners. The team that we now have in the UK and Europe possess all the necessary skills we need to understand the market and be successful in both selling and marketing the product worldwide ”
