Technology: “Overboost”

When we started developing the remote, we realized that alloy and carbon block radio frequencies that are used by garage door remotes. That was a problem for us since we wanted the remote to be installed in the bicycle handlebars, mostly made of alloy or carbon. The early prototypes only had an operational range of less than 1.5m/5ft. After months of engineering, prototyping, and testing, we finally achieved a range of more than 15m/50ft.

“IP65 Water Resistant”

The 12speed Doormate is built to work even in rain. The 12speed Doormate is protected against water from all angles.

One Year Battery Life

The battery was designed to handle multiple activations per day for at least 365 days. The 12speed Doormate uses an A27 battery that is available at most local stores and very inexpensive, as well as easy to replace.

Secure Integration And Mounting

The 12speed Doormate was designed with an end clamp that mounts the garage remote into the end of the handlebar. This prevents the remote from being removed without completely removing the handlebar tape. This handlebar tape built-in design helps prevent theft and accidental loss while you are enjoying your ride.

Long-lasting design

The Doormate was designed to house inside a road bicycle handlebar, which protects the device from harm from both impact and the natural elements. The Doormate has an IP65 water resistance rating and has a very secure bar end mounting hardware. The mounting hardware prevents the device from theft and premature loss due to the handlebar tape acting as secondary security to the mounting hardware and will require the removal of the handlebar tape before the mount and device can be removed. The Doormate uses an A27 battery which supplies over a one-year battery of life.
