Garageio just made it onto Ebay’s Innovators Collective!
The Innovators Collective is an exclusive list of innovative products featured on Ebay. With only 30 products on the list, why did Ebay choose us? We believe it is because of our vision: We built Garageio with the future in mind.
Smart home devices are changing the way we live and the way we interact with our home. We are making sure that Garageio works with other smart devices. While other smart garage door openers may have the same function, they don’t have the integration that makes us stand out. Garageio talks to your other smart home devices, giving you complete control over every aspect of your home.
A big thanks to Ebay for believing in Garageio and putting us on the Innovators Collective! Check out our product page on Ebay here: ebay.com/garageio

We’re excited to announce the debut of the Garageio Skill for the Amazon Echo™ which allows you to control your garage using your voice! To use the Garageio skill, you need to enable it in the Alexa Companion App (or website).* Simply open the app, tap on Skills in the menu, and then press Enable for the Garageio skill.
Once enabled, you can link your Garageio to your Amazon account by speaking the following to Echo:
Last week, Amazon announced their new Alexa Fund offering a $100 million in investments to fuel innovation in voice technology. Who was one of the first seven companies to be a part of the Alexa investment? You guessed it – Garageio. Our team is excited to now be part of the Amazon Echo ecosystem!
The Alexa Fund is centered around the Amazon Echo, the voice-controlled assistant (Alexa) which provides information, answer questions, plays music, reads the news, check sports scores or the weather, and now, can control your garage.
Garageio extends the Echo’s capabilities into the garage to control and monitor a user’s garage doors. For example, before falling asleep many homeowners wonder whether the exterior doors are all locked, their windows are shut, and their garage door is closed. Now, all it takes is a quick question to Echo or another Alexa-enabled device: “Alexa, ask Garageio if the garage door open?” If it is, just say “Alexa, tell Garageio to close the garage door.”
The Garageio/Alexa app will be available soon to all Echo owners. If you have an Echo but not a Garageio, get yours today via Garageio’s website or on Amazon. We are looking forward to more exciting things still to come as our team continues to dream and explore the edge of possibilities.
This version of the application includes a number of features that have been requested.
Using version 2.0 of the iOS app, you can now enable/disable door open alerts, change the notification tone that is played when you receive a door open alert to one that is more subtle, and set the time zone in which your garage is located.
Each of these settings will be stored on your phone. In addition, each of these settings will be backed up to your Garageio account so that they can be recovered if you need to reinstall the app, switch phones, etc.
You can now choose between two different alert tones. Loud and Clear is the default tone.
Loud and Clear (default)
Setting the time zone will ensure that open and close times are reported correctly on your Garageio dashboard located on our website.
Shake to Refresh
When you access the Garageio iOS app, the app requests the status (opened/closed) of each of your garage doors. Shaking your phone will now tell the app to request the status of each door again.
Door Open/Close Changes
In addition the Garageio app has been updated so that you cannot open or close a garage door that is in the process of opening or closing. When a door is opening, a status message will appear stating “door opening”. When the door is fully open, the message will changed to “door opened”. Similar messages will appear for a door that is closing and closed.
We’re looking forward to your questions, comments, and feedback. You can contact us at any time via our Contact form.
