Smart Garage Door Opener Controller

Just wondering what others have done.  We'd like to retrofit our garage door opener with a smart device.  Ideally it is something that would somehow takeover/integrate with the click opener, let us know what the garage door status is and when it changes, and allow us to close the garage door remotely.  Anybody have any suggestions?

They are available on Amazon. I don't recall the name (Chamberlain comes to mind)  so can't help you there.  They use their own app and will not integrate with your SS system.

I ordered the myQ system for my garage door, the app is free and works well with the device which is easy to install. It allows you to log in at any time and check the status of the door. I found mine on Amazon and it works with my Chamberlain opener.

MyQ (Chamberlain) system missing major feature.

It only allows one account to use it.  Do I cannot setup my spouse to use the app to open/close the garage door, only I can do it.  Plus, it only works with Chamberlain's products.

I was using Garageio device, and it worked well.  However, the company was sold to another company, and the apps have moreorless died on the vine.

I switched to iSmartGate.  Easy to setup, connects in the path for your button control, so works with many garage door opener.  The door sensor is wireless, so less wires to string around.  And it integrates with Alexa, HomeKit, Google Home, IFTTT, and other networks, so I can set it up to automatically open the garage door as I am coming down the street.  

It doesn't integrate with SimpliSafe, but it does work well.
