Questions & Answers


Does this work with Martin DC3700E Garage door controllers? I see one answer saying it was fairl...

Asked by AG June 2, 2021

The Martin garage door openers is not currently listed as a compatible model with Aladdin Connect.

Will this also control the ceiling light in the garage?

Asked by Mary May 23, 2021

No, only controls the door opener. If you get creative you might be able to make something, you will need to know a bit about electronics.

Does this work with Genie Blue Max unit. It is from 1996

Asked by Buckeyejihn January 26, 2021

My previous genie was from 1991 and I was able to use Aladdin until it died. And I used same Aladdin to the newer Genie opener. You are basically replacing one of your wall switch then configure/connect to your wifi. Watch the Aladdin YouTube installation video, will help understand how it work.

works great; easy install
It was really simple to set up. I wired it to the existing button, no need to run the wire to the opener. In my scenario, the existing button and adjacent power made it this simple

Aladdin Connect Now Protects Our Vulnerable Garage
Great product – managed to install in a few hours, Wi-Fi is very robust, and the door sensor pairing was straight forward too. I followed the installation video and somehow got lost after the registration step – so I missed the Wi-Fi configuration 1st time through. But found the alternate web page route in the FAQ (maybe that needs more exposure), also took me a while to discover the Wi-Fi button on the device. I did contact the support site once to get guidance on the correct connections to my 2024 opener units – quick response and good advice. I did subsequently break a few fingernails enabling the wiring connections! Overall, a worthwhile investment – now our skis, bikes and kayaks are less subject to an accidently open garage door event.
Just what I was looking for.
I wanted to find a way to verify that the door was closed after everyone had left, but this is so much more. Installation was a breeze on a recently installed Genie, but I see no reason why it could not work with just about any opener that has wires from a wall switch. The new app had some real growing pains - released way too soon, but the issues with sensor battery strength and position reporting have been smooth for the last few months. The unit is so neat that I almost wish I had two doors (it will control 3) instead of the double door for my 2-car garage. A couple of caveats though. 1) Don't chuck your old remote. Unfortunately, the unit draws AC power, whereas my Genie opener has a battery backup. However, even if they could get the Connect to draw off the battery, it still needs an Internet via WiFi to work, so If the neighborhood power is knocked out, it won't work without some serious UPS's in the network. Of course, here in Florida, the chances that a blackout will happen during the thunderstorm that you want to avoid having to dash from your car to the keypad opener during are pretty high. 2) the FAQs are very out of date. For instance, they talk about adding new users for family or temporary/restricted access. The "Users tab" no longer exists - you now create and hand out virtual keys; support still has a lot of catching up to do.

Garage Door Controller (Retrofit-Kit)
The product works great - Alexa opens on command and closes I would give it 5 stars except for these issues 1. If you have a type III Controller you need to purchase a Genie 38013R Dry Contact Control Adapter for series III Models - nothing is mentioned about this on the main page It’s in the FAQ or online video (I learned this after installation and i could not make it work) 2. The design engineer needs to go to ergonomics school The connection wires are a pain to hook up into the modules You have to push tiny tabs down while inserting the wires into the connection holes inside a small compartment on the back of the unit Connecting wires to the 38013R is even more difficult

Filled in the Missing Block.
Took a while to configure, bit persistence counted.

Great product
Had this installed for about 2 weeks now works absolutely perfect. I believe it also helped that I have a genie garage door opener but I believe it does not matter what kind of opener you have.
Poor written app. Waste of money.
Very poor app. Can only always open successfully the first time and have issue with the app, either is busy or etc.
by An Engineer
Smarthome ready, works great with Alexa
I installed this unit in 15 minutes including the door sensor. I had a slight problem with the Wifi picking up the strongest signal in my room, so I did have to move the unit next to my wifi router and then it worked fine on the setup. There does need to be a choice for wifi networks, I have 2 different 2,4Ghz networks and I had to go with the one the unit chose. With all that being said, as soon as I installed to app it worked flawlessly and has for a month now. I peared it with a 12+ year old Genie 2 plus.

Nice retrofit product
Works great and easy to install. I don’t see why it wouldn’t work on any opener. Mine are 20 years old.

Easy to install. Never again would I have to wonder if my garage door was left open by accident.
