Using Garage Doors
The Devicebook Garage Doors Solution lets you control and automate your home's garage doors from anywhere.
Controlling Garage Doors
Devicebook Garage Doors can be controlled and monitored directly from the Devicebook App for a mobile phone or a Wall Pad.

You can see which garage doors are open, control them, and change Garage Doors notifications from the Devicebook App.
Control garage doors by tapping the Open or Close button for the appropriate garage door.
Change notification settings from the Settings tab.
Just as you would with your mobile phone's Devicebook App, you can monitor your home's garage Doors using any Wall Pad in your home.
Devicebook Garage Doors has some automated actions that can be enabled or disabled. It also works with Routines, allowing you to create fully custom schedule-based automations.
