beam Plays Well With Others

Learn about our integrations with other smart home products and services. Make your beam even smarter with Amazon Alexa or IFTTT!



IFTTT (If This Then That) lets you easily connect beam to other services and devices in your world by creating custom applets. Put the internet to work for you!  IFTTT already has a great list of applets that you can use to control your garage through beam. To get started, connect beam to IFTTT with a few easy steps.



Amazon Alexa designed around your voice. Its far-field voice recognition hears you from across the room and lets you control your connected home devices without lifting a finger, beam included! Once the beam skill is enabled, you’ll be able to use verbal commands such as:

  • “Alexa, tell beam to close my door” – Close an open door

  • “Alexa, tell beam to open my door” – Open a closed door (requires a Pin Code)

  • “Alexa, ask beam if my door is open” – Check if door(s) are open

  • “Alexa, ask beam what the names of my doors are”– Get the names of your doors

  • “Alexa, ask beam for help” – Get helpful information

Note: Alexa now requires that you provide a Pin Code any time you want to open a garage door using your voice. You must also enable the beam skill in the Alexa App before you can speak commands to beam using Alexa.
