MOUNT HOPE, Ohio & AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 2, 2019--

The Genie Company is excited to announce the integration of its full line of Wi-Fi enabled smart garage door openers and controllers with Yonomi, the simple smart home integration platform.

The convenience of monitoring and controlling your garage door with the Aladdin Connect® app is now extended to Yonomi’s free smart home automation app. With Yonomi, consumers can set up customized routines involving multiple smart home products to make home life simpler and more comfortable. Available for both iOS and Android, Yonomi integrates with more than 250 popular smart home devices and is used in over 140 countries.
