Why does Asante app request access to my contacts
Combined with garage sensor, your smart garage door opener can send text notification to your phone.
This allows you to receive a message indicating if the garage is opened, closed or left open.
To set this text message up, you need to specify a phone number to send the text to. To do so, we will need to follow the guidelines from Android and Apple IOS guidelines, thus, we are requesting you to grant access to us.
Why does Asante app ask permission to access my device’s location?
If you have the Garage Door Sensor, Asante app needs to know the time zone that you are in so that it can stamp the notifications with the correct time zone.
If you have an Irrigation Controller, Asante app needs to know your area time to watering schedule.
