"The Nexx Garage is great for anyone wanting simple, fuss-free smarts and compatibility with the voice-activated assistants Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant."
"Best Alexa-Compatible Garage Door Opener: The Nexx Garage door opener works not only with Alexa, but with Google Home, too, so you can open or close the door using voice commands. And, unlike Chamberlain MyQ, there's no subscription fee."
"There is also another feature that I like… the geofence feature which when I drive up to the house, the garage door will automatically open up…I don’t have to have the clicker with me or need to open up the app on my phone…"

"Overall, I like the Nexx Controller. It’s convenient to know when the door is open or closed, and if someone forgets to close it. I’d like to have some camera integration, so I can see things from one app as well, but for now, I’m using a Wyze Cam. And while I was testing, the internet in my home had an outage. A lot of my Wi-Fi-powered smart home devices didn’t work right without the internet, but the Nexx controller did. Because it uses Bluetooth as a fallback. That’s a fantastic win for Nexx."
While there are other options for making existing alarm systems smarter, Nexx includes broad compatibility with a range of home control platforms. With the Nexx Smart Alarm installed, users can issue voice commands to Alexa, Google Assistant, or Siri to control and monitor the system. Sharing is also included so that multiple household members can have control over home security if necessary.
We’ve been testing the Nexx Smart Alarm for several weeks and we’re impressed. It’s easy to install, lets you keep your existing panel, and can potentially save lots of money from monitoring fees and/or false alarms.
