...adding a device to control my garage door with Alexa and not being killed by all the subscription fees that are associated with other smart products makes the beam Smart Control Kit easy to own.
beam enabled products use industry-standard security technology to keep your data and access to your garage safe and secure. All communications and sensitive data are secured in our databases using the same technology as online banking. In addition, numerous security mechanisms to prevent unauthorized access to your controller have been put in place. Fingerprint recognition technology can be enabled on beam apps for enhanced security.
Security standards are updated as technology evolves.
