Does the model 3 have an IOT garage door opener app?

It has a Tesla app which controls most of the functions you want such as heat and charging, and also sending addresses to the Nav system.
It also controls the garage door Homelink (if you buy FSD and get the Homelink accessory). Is that what you are asking about?

I also have a SmartThings controlled Garage Door. There's nothing that I can currently find, but I'm hoping to write one once I get my car.

From what I understand the Homelink is HW that is installed in the M3. I'd like to avoid installing HW in the M3 just to control the GD.
I use EWELINK, SONOFF app.
The device I have connected to the GD is https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B077Z5B461/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1, $13.80. I use it from Alexa, phone and computer.

Does your IoT door opener also happen to support Homelink?

Correct me if I'm wrong.
No, the opener I have is wi-fi frequency based, HL is radio frequency based.
I believe the Tesla has wi-fi and AT&T cell capability. I believe I could use the browser but an app would be more elegant.
I've looked through the forums and electrek and have just an inkling of what is available.

Thanks for the clarification.

There is no such thing as a Tesla app.

You can run web pages, but that’s really not convenient for a garage door I wouldn’t think.

Unfortunately, if you want easy access from the car display you would need to get the home link module for the car and an add on home link receiver for the house.

I have a an IOT garage door opener which I use from the phone. Does the model 3 have an IOT app? Currently anxiously waiting on a M3 AWD LR.
Whenever I see that acronym, I think IdiOT and not Internet Of Things. It works too, IdiOT garage door opener. I've had those.

Snarky are we? Works great for me. I asked for help not a wise a$$ response with not so cute play on an acronym.
Snarky? Sorry, I didn't mean to upset you. It was late Friday afternoon, and that's exactly what I think when I see the acronym. And to be honest, I don't think I've ever been accused of snark before. Funny, yes. Sarcastic, yes. Helpful, yes. Wise ass, never. Snarky, never.
