Smart Garage Door Openers
Everything electronic these days has some “smart” variation regarding its capabilities interacting with your phone and Wi-Fi. Believe it or not, overhead doors are no different from this trend, especially when it comes to openers.
Openers are perhaps the most underappreciated part of overhead opening garage doors. Most of the time, we don’t see them doing all the work when we come and go, but the reality is, without the engines in our garage door openers, we’d have to open and close these devices by hand.
It is important to have a garage door opener that works and is suitable for your particular door style and function. Smart garage door openers are not exempt from this. They cost more and only serve a certain demographic of people that want specific features from their door. Having said that, a smart garage door opener could add value to the overall cost of your house when it comes time to sell.
Here are a few things you should know about smart garage door openers before you consider committing money to this investment.
Peace of Mind
Have you ever left your house for your morning commute wondering if you forgot to shut your garage door? Most of the time, we spend that day worrying that we didn’t, only to come home and find that we did. There are also those rare times when we decide to turn around and pull up to our driveway to find the garage door wide open. Smart garage doors eliminate this problem.
If you have a Wi-Fi connection at home, your garage door can be monitored by your smartphone at all times. Close your garage door, open your garage door, and do whatever needs to be done from wherever as long as you have a connection!
Smart garage door openers keep a history of who uses your garage door and when. Family members have their user identifications labeled with a time stamp when those people come and go from the house. So, if your kids want to break curfew, they must get more creative! Being a teenager just got a whole lot more challenging.
Users can also customize when the garage door can be opened and when it stays shut. The lighting systems can also be set to different times of day, so you don’t have to fumble around in the dark to find the light switch.
If you want to take your garage door security to the next level, you can go so far as to get notifications on your phone whenever your smart garage door opener is used.
Smart garage door openers can also be compatible with a majority of the most popular smart home systems to give you complete control and customization over your garage. For example, a lot of the home security camera systems that are widely used by consumers today can also be linked with our wide variety of smart garage door openers!
