Do I Need A Vehicle Sensor?
This video explains whether or not you need a Tailwind Vehicle Sensor, followed by a short demonstration. In short, if you want the auto-open / close features and you have an iPhone, you need a vehicle sensor. If you have an Android phone and it is paired with your vehicle, you don't need a vehicle sensor.
Why does Tailwind require a sensor or vehicle Bluetooth?
It comes down to our core mission of improving the security of your home while adding convenience and throwing in some luxury for good measure. By detecting the presence of a vehicle bluetooth connection (Android phones only) or the presence of a Tailwind vehicle sensor (iPhones or Android phones), Tailwind is able to implement a type of 2 factor authentication before auto-opening the door. It requires an authorized phone and an authorized vehicle to approach home together. If someone were to steal your phone and go to your house with it, unlike other solutions that try to implement auto-open using standard geofencing, Tailwind's patent pending technology WILL NOT auto-open your garage door for them. In addition, for families with multiple garage doors and multiple vehicles, it enables the system to determine who is coming home, which vehicle they are driving, and open the correct door based on that user's preferences for that particular vehicle.
How do I set up a vehicle or vehicle sensor?
