The ability to remotely control a commercial door unit is typically provided by a dedicated remote control. In some cases, local control may also be available via a panel mounted near the door. Such systems allow for controlling (e.g., opening and closing) the door unit from short distances while a user is on-site and actively utilizing the door. However, all remote mobile applications have focused only on non-commercial garage doors. It would be desirable to provide means for enabling the user to control a commercial door unit without using a mounted door panel or dedicated remote control device. This thesis provides such a unit that enables the user to control and monitor the commercial door unit from any distance using a smartphone. Users are able to securely manage multiple doors from one user application loaded on their smartphones. A log including the history of each door's status is also provided. In addition, the unit is easily scalable so that an unlimited number of users could control and monitor many doors on their mobile devices using the same application.
