The Company

genie-lg

Genie is a leading manufacturer of garage door openers and accessories for residential and commercial applications.

The Business Challenge

In a highly competitive market, Genie knew that security and safety was a concern for their customers. Teaming up with Exosite and Exosite’s IoT partners to leverage cutting-edge technology and meet consumer needs made perfect sense.

The Opportunity

Genie’s goal was to go to market quickly to keep pace with the quickly evolving home automation market. Research indicated that a smart device that could control multiple garage doors had market share viability and profit potential.

 

WHAT IF HOME OWNERS COULD MONITOR THEIR GARAGE DOOR STATUS FROM ANYWHERE WITH A SMART PHONE DEVICE?

Working in tandem with Exosite enabled our team to bring a great concept to life in months, rather than years

— STEVE JANAS, VICE PRESIDENT AND GENERAL MANAGER AT THE GENIE COMPANY

The Solution

Aladdin Connect = Remote Access Control System. Aladdin Connect gives consumers real-time control and history of activity for up to three garage doors from anywhere with a smart device using connected device technology.

ALADDIN CONNECT ENABLES HOMEOWNERS TO USE A SMART DEVICE APP TO MONITOR AND CHANGE THE POSITION OF UP TO THREE GARAGE DOORS.

1. Aladdin Connect app communicates with Exosite’s Internet Cloud to monitor or schedule door position (open or closed).

2. Exosite’s Internet Cloud sends signal to home router and shares information via Wi-Fi® to the Door Control Module (DCM).

3. The DCM then talks to the Door Position Sensor (DPS) mounted on the door via Bluetooth technology.

4. Within seconds the DPS responds to the owner’s smart device to complete the owner’s request and is visible on the smart device.

The Results

Quick-to-market response

Kept competition at bay with new security and control solutions for home automation.

Created value for Genie and distributors

Technology innovations demonstrated commitment to product performance, brand value and distributor demand.

Consumer ease-of-use

Remote Access Control System facilitated easy installation and set up, compatible with most devices.

Extra security and safety

Security has always been a concern of homeowners even in “safe” neighborhoods. The ability to monitor garage door position and activity from any location gives consumers peace-of-mind

Built a Foundation for Future Connected Products

Genie has intentions of offering connected products beyond Aladdin Connect. Because of the flexibility of Exosite’s platform, Genie has been able to develop a company-wide IoT foundation that can be easily leveraged to reduce the time and money needed to take future connected products to market.
