Garage|Shadow turns any Bluetooth cellphone into a garage door remote

January 13, 2009 As the smartphone captures and ever greater share of the mobile phone market, it’s clear that people want their phone to become ever more multifunctional. Unify4Life envisages a day when their products will enable a BlackBerry to interact with and control any home or office product a customer desires. The company announced US$40 Garage|Shadow at CES, which allows you to open and close your garage door from your Blackberry or any Bluetooth enabled cell phone. The previously announced US$100 AV|Shadow does the same thing for controlling a set top box, DVD, VCR, TiVo, PVR or home theater.

The application will be available in April for under $40.00 and work with a wide variety of BlackBerry smartphones, including the BlackBerry Bold, BlackBerry Storm, and all Black Berry Curve, BlackBerry Pearl and BlackBerry 8800 series smartphones.

The Garage|Shadow installs just like your existing switch. Simply plug in the two wires from the Garage|Shadow, in the same location as the two wires from your switch. Activating our "automatic open" feature means that your garage door will open as soon as you come into sight of your garage.
