Was easy to hook up and it connected to the network with no problems.
So I'm away from home and I get an alert from my home monitoring that my garage door is (for some reason) open. Easy enough fix. I log into my Craftsman app and - voila! I press the button to close the garage door and......(wait for it).....NOTHING happens. Except for an error that says that the device is not responding. This happens OVER and OVER...even when we did remember to close the garage door upon exiting. What's the point of being able to close your garage door remotely if you forgot to close it when you left, if the damned thing constantly loses connection?
Easy to setup and excellent.
It was a gift, I checked with him and he said it works great, very happy with it.
I had several questions about this hub. My garage is about 55 feet from my house. I wanted to know if the signal would reach the opener from inside the house. I found out that the Hub is hard wired to the router and the signal from the hub to the opener is a radio frequency like your garage remote not a wifi signal. The signal is supposed to reach up to 300 feet. It was suggested that I take one of the remotes to the location of my wifi and see if it will open the door and it did. Therefore, it made sense that the hub would open the garage from the same distance. It did and it works great! I would have given it 5 stars if the correct web site was listed in the easy to follow installation booklet. However, the site listed is non existent. The correct site to establish the account is assurelink.craftsman.com. After you set up the account you just download the craftsman app and add the opener to the app and you are connected. A great advantage to the hub for me with a detached garage is I can open the door and use the remote start to warm it up for a few minutes without first having to go out to open the door. Of course you can't do that with an attached garage.
