Smart Thinking leads to Smartphone App for Levigato

Not one to rest on their laurels, UK Alutech distributor JD (UK) Ltd is currently developing a smartphone App and WiFi switch for the recently launched Levigato operating system. 

This latest innovation, in response to market demand, will provide customers with a hi-tech upsell opportunity and reaffirms the company’s position as a leader in the industry.

The simple phone App for opening and closing of garage door or gate systems supports iOS 8 or higher and Android 4.1 and higher. It comes with a stylish tempered glass control switch and offers easy set up and connection to the Levigato motor.

Technical and Production Manager at JD (UK) Ltd, Rob Shaw, is overseeing the development. Rob explains:
“The WiFi switch can be linked to your Amazon or Google home systems to activate the door or gate and can be connected to up to 3 garage doors from 1 switch or up to 3 gates. The switch can also be set to single leaf cycles or full gate. A door or gate indicator is included, which indicates whether your door is open or closed, both on the wall switch and phone App.
“The App and WiFi system are WEP/WPA security protected and access to your switch with other phones can be shared and deleted as required. The phone App can also be customised to suit your requirements with the option to rename the buttons.”

Steve Hudson, Managing Director of JD (UK), added:
“Following the well-received launch of the Levigato operating system earlier this year, introducing digital automation was the next logical step. It won’t be a volume product at first, but is without doubt the way the market is going and it’s important for us to be ahead of the curve.”
With trials of the new product currently underway, plans are to launch this as a full kit in limited quantities in December before a full roll out early next year. The kit will include; the switch, wall box, cabling and setup instructions.

So, if you’re a forward-thinking business and would like to one of the first to have the latest technology for your showroom or next customer, please register your interest as soon as possible. The first 50 kits will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
