Europe-based company Remootio has launched its first Homekit-enabled garage and gate opener, the Remootio 3. This smart remote control is equipped with WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, offering end-to-end encryption for secure remote access. Although not a brand-new device, HomeKit compatibility is a recent addition. The Remootio 3 enables users to conveniently control and monitor their gates and garage doors using their iPhone. The installation process requires connecting the Remootio 3 to the gate or garage door using the provided cables. Once connected, users can control and monitor their gate or garage door using their iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, Siri, or other voice assistants like Alexa or Google. Compatibility is also extended to Samsung SmartThings. The device comes with power supplies for different regions: UK (Type G), AU/CN (Type I), Europe (Type C), or North America (Type A). In addition to Apple Home and HomeKit compatibility, Remootio's own app allows users to share digital "access keys" with guests or visitors, setting limitations on their control rights. The company emphasizes that the device also supports geofencing (GPS) or iBeacon (Bluetooth) to open the gate or garage door based on the user's location. Furthermore, in addition to HomeKit compatibility, users can control the Remootio 3 using Siri Shortcuts and a widget. To ensure secure communication, Remootio utilizes 256-bit authenticated end-to-end encryption between the iPhone and the device, regardless of whether Bluetooth or WiFi is used. This encryption guarantees that all data exchanged between the devices is secure and protected from unauthorized interception. By storing encryption keys on both the Remootio device and the user's iPhone, Remootio eliminates the need for cloud storage, thereby avoiding potential vulnerabilities to cyber-attacks. This approach also ensures that access to the keys is strictly limited to the authorized user. Overall, Remootio's use of end-to-end encryption and local key storage provides robust security measures to protect users' privacy and data. The Remootio 3 can be purchased from their website or for more information visit their website.
