Orro, creators of the professional-grade top-of-the-line Orro Smart Living System, today announced smart home integration with Genie, one of the world’s leading brands in garage door openers. As a unified, smart living system in the form factor of a standard-sized light switch, Orro’s revolutionary product reshapes how homeowners experience and interact with lighting and other smart home devices and systems—now including garage door openers. With the latest addition, Genie and Overhead Door® brand openers join a lineup of popular smart home products to integrate with Orro’s room-by-room touchscreen, voice and smartphone-based controls and monitoring, including popular smart home products from companies including Sonos, Nest, Ring, Ecobee and Control4.
“Genie is excited to be part of the lineup of integrations offered by this innovative system,” said Mike Kridel, president of The Genie Company. “This option allows home builders to extend garage door controls and monitoring to any or all rooms via voice controls and Orro’s touchscreen interface.”
As Genie works to make its garage door openers smarter, safer, and more user-friendly, this key integration allows home builders to offer a more complete and human-centric control system. With 81% of homebuyers expecting smart systems to be included, Orro partners with production and custom home builders throughout North America to provide a professionally installed, simple-to-use, intelligent system. To set up the integration, Orro professional installers and customers simply need to select Genie from the Integrations section of the Orro App.
