INDUSTRYNEWS The Genie Company Announces "Open Sesame" Video Contest Winners The results are in for The Genie Company's "Open Sesame" Video Contest. Genie, one of America's most recognized brands, awarded Joe Binetti of Los Angeles the grand prize of $10,000 for his catchy rap song about Genie® garage door openers and Alad - din Connect® garage door opener smart devices. Binetti's 65-second video, "The Undeniable Genie Rap," was given top prize for demonstrating how a Genie opener can be the "hero" of any garage with its advanced smart design and features. The video features himself in an energetic and entertaining per- formance of how Genie can make life so much easier for someone who has a home with a garage door powered by an opener. He also takes it a step further to show how Genie openers with Aladdin Connect can be linked to you through your smart phone or device for 24/7 remote monitoring and operation. Binetti starts by cleverly showing how a noisy opener can be a nuisance to homeowner and kids alike but how Genie openers can make garage life much quieter. He then segues to how a battery backup unit can save the day if the power goes out by saving a person from having to open the door manually (or from not being able to open the door at all if on the outside). From there Binetti demonstrates the advantage of Genie LED light bulbs. Some LED bulbs installed in a garage door opener can reduce the range of the remote. But Genie LED bulbs, made specifically for openers, eliminate or reduce any remote interfer- ence, a point not lost in Binetti's catchy tune. Then comes the big finale, showing how the Genie Aladdin Connect smart device, described by Binetti as "the bell of the ball" can turn any Genie or most other brands into a smart opener. This is demonstrat- ed by Binetti opening the door for a delivery person and then closing the door after the package is placed inside.
