  • Patented technology opens the door automatically for you without needing the button, keypad or to pull out your phone and launch the app.
  • Closes the door automatically when you leave (if you forget to do it yourself)** (iPhone users will require iOS 13)

  • Works with Google Home and Amazon Alexa. Supports IFTTT.
  • Open, close, check the door status and receive alerts anywhere in the world using your smart device and the free Tailwind iOS or Android app
  • Pairs and recognizes your vehicle's Bluetooth ID so the garage door automatically opens when you arrive and closes when you go. 
  • Unlimited users, no monthly fee, a history log and customizable alert and auto-close schedules that are perfect for both home and business use
  • Easy to install and convert your existing garage door opener
  • Comes with everything you will need to operate 1 garage door
  • Special wiring is required if your garage door opener has a yellow "Learn" button. Contact us at support@gotailwind.com if your "Learn" button is yellow.

* Patented. 

** You should always close your garage door yourself. The Tailwind auto-close feature is meant to be an "in case you forget" feature, providing extra peace of mind. Like all internet-based communications, there may be rare instances when communications between the mobile app and garage device are temporarily down, and auto-close might not work if that interruption lasts for an extended period of time
