Garage Beacon is designed as an extremely easy-to-use application that gives you the ability to turn your smartphone into a garage-opening remote. If you're one of those people who never leaves the house without your phone, the app is extremely handy to have on hand, since it will automate the process of opening and closing the garage door when you're in close proximity to it. If you have a setup that involves two or more garage doors, these can be individually controlled from within the app.

Setup of the Garage Beacon beacon system is quite simple, and only involves installing some hardware in your actual garage and syncing your phone with the device. Garage Beacon just concluded a successful campaign on Kickstarter that more than doubled its initial funding goals.
