Review:

Now let us hear what people say about eKyro’s product and their service.

“I cannot rate the Alexa integration as I don’t have an Alexa device, but I can give the Google Home integration five stars. And like getting the alerts on my phone and being able to ask if the door is still open from the comfort of my upstairs bedroom. I also used the app to schedule the door to close at 9 pm in case I forget….” [1]

“Super product, easy installation, great price, peace of mind when away, and the best customer support I’ve experienced in a very long time.
I rarely write a review but this experience was so great that I feel I need to share it in hopes that it will help others. I was looking to automate my garage doors along with some lights and cameras around the house and narrowed my choice to a couple of inexpensive garage door controllers from eKyro and another company who had something similar for a few dollars less……” [2]

“It’s easy to install. It took about 15 minutes.

The time feature is nice. One can write a very simple program that will ensure the door is closed at a specified time. In my case, the program reads to the effect, if it is 7 PM an the door is open, then close it, otherwise do nothing.’
”It’s nice being able to see the state of the door (open or closed) on my phone especially during those rare events when I leave home in a hurry and then have regrets for not making sure the door closed.” [3]

“ Setup was quick and easy. We already had devices on the app, so I was glad that all I had to do was add the garage door as an additional device. Asking Alexa to open or close the garage door was nice, but asking if the door was open or closed was a real plus. It was a surprise when she responded “checking, hang on” and then gave me the status. When asking her to open the door, she asks for a user defined 4 digit code. Another nice security feature. . I will be purchasing another for our second garage door. If you have a garage door you should have one of these….” [4]
