Attention iPhone users: iOS 15.0 through 15.2.x contain bugs that affect the auto-open feature. Versions above or below work fine.

Does the vehicle sensor work if I have no data connection on my phone?

    Hi Nick,

    It relies on your your phone's ability to connect to the internet. The vehicle sensor is a proximity device that talks to your mobile phone. When your phone detects the sensor is nearby it checks to see where you are and if you're driving to or from home. If you are, the phone app knows it is authorized to send the close / open commands and also knows which door to open / close (if you have more than one door / sensor combination). The sensor does not communicate directly with your garage door opener. It only communicates with the mobile phone.
