If you want to control multiple garage doors, here’s another option from meross that comes with an external antenna and two door sensors. It can support up to three doors but you need to purchase the third sensor separately if you need it. Of course, you also need to check the compatibility with your door opener. The company also offers accessories that can make the remote work with your specific door opener if required.

As for the functionality, it works like a charm to monitor the status of your garage door and you can check it at any time from the app. The installation is pretty straightforward but you require a strong 2.4GHz WiFi network near your door to ensure that the remote works seamlessly. The external antenna ensures a stable, strong signal provided your WiFi network works well.
