Tailwind iQ3 Smart Automatic Garage Controller PRO

  • Experience the luxury of patented technology that automagically and securely opens the door as you arrive home. Just drive. Watch the Demo Video  (Optional vehicle sensor is REQUIRED for iPhone users to have the auto open and close feature. Android users also need a vehicle sensor if the vehicle does not have bluetooth.)*
  • Closes the door automagically when you leave (if you forget to do it yourself)** (may require optional vehicle sensor - see above)*
  • Works with Apple HomeKit, Google Home, Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, Smart Things, IFTTT, Home Assistant, Hubitat, Crestron, and Control4
  • Local control API available to make your own custom integration
  • Open, close, check the door status and receive customized alerts anywhere in the world using your smart device and the free Tailwind iOS or Android app
  • Works with Apple Watch and Android Wear OS watches
  • Unlimited users - share access with as many people as you like
  • Robust sharing rules - grant access during scheduled times on specific days of the week, or one time access, or full access. Revoke access instantly if / when necessary.
  • Cross Family Sharing allows you to share access with other families and they can share access with you without having to log into different accounts
  • Control who can see door history and who can't
  • Configurable partial open. Just tap and hold on the door icon to partially open the door by the amount you want - perfect for airing out the garage
  • Customizable alert schedule - only receive notifications when you want them
  • Optional "spoken" or "verbal" notifications "Your garage door just opened" make it easy to distinguish from other notifications
  • Notifications and event history both display the name of the person, automation, or integration that operated the door (ex. "Alexa opened door 1", or "Adam closed the Harley door", or "Night Mode closed the main door")
  • Timed Auto-Close if a door has been left open - configurable up to 60 minutes, and you decide if you want to only be notified or if you want it to close.
  • Unique "Night Mode" is far more secure than a simple "close at 10PM". If the door opens at any time during the night, Tailwind's "Night Mode" will close it again after a few minutes.
  • Door Disable feature - allows you to disable the door until a certain time so you can work around the garage or yard without worrying about anyone operating the door remotely, or you can disable it permanently until you want to restore function - useful for going on vacation.
  • No monthly fee
  • Easy to install and convert your existing garage door opener
  • Includes a commercial grade, robust door sensor that quickly and easily mounts to standard J-track***. Automating the largest entrance to your home starts with rock solid door position sensing.
  • Extra long sensor wire - suitable for high ceilings - 10 meters (32'9")
  • Comes with everything you need to operate 1 garage door and is expandable up to 3 doors per controller with additional door kits sold separately
  • If you have a Chamberlain, Liftmaster, or Craftsman branded opener that has a round yellow "learn" button, be sure to select "YES" during checkout when our website asks if you have one of these. Your opener requires special hardware.

* Patented. May require Tailwind Vehicle Sensor. Please check Tailwind Vehicle Sensor page to determine if you need any for your intended use.

** 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.


NOTE: Please check for lift cable brackets at the bottom edges of your garage door where the lifting cables may be attached. If lift cable brackets are present and they glide up / down over the J-track they will collide with the Pro Door sensor. Please order the "above door" sensor kit if any part of your door glides up and down and covers the J-track.
