Monitor your garage door also open/close remotely. Paired mine with a Wyze cam to confirm door is closed. The sensor on the garage was having issues so I put a Wyze cam in garage to confirm.
It mainly just works as mentioned by others. Has 2F authentication.

Damn! I just installed the $30 white one I got from Amazon. Oh well, I am very happy with it and was well worth the money.

totally worth it. Love mine. Battery in the door sensor lasts about a year and is easy to replace. Sticks on with hook and loop pressure sensitive adhesive pad.

I installed this in my garage about two months ago. It is great for opening and closing the garage door when I am on my bicycle. It's also good for those moments when youre a mile from home and wonder if you closed the garage.

Two downsides:

The Apple Watch component of the app fails about 90% of the time, insisting that I need to unlock my phone or put in my password. I've stopped bothering with that part.

The bigger thing is that this is not HomeKit compatible by itself. That stops you from just saying "Siri close the garage" or "Siri is the garage closed". To make that happen you have to by and additional "smarter hub" that costs $70. I just use the phone app.
