Are you interested in home automation?
Then you may want to consider rewarding your garage, and yourself, with a smart garage door opener. A smart garage door opener provides countless benefits, as well as peace of mind – no more needless worrying that you forgot to close the door when you drove away. Before purchasing a new opener, however, it’s a good idea to have a local garage door professional perform preventative maintenance.
How to get started?
Getting online takes minutes. Most, if not all, smart garage door openers come with everything you need to get started with Wi-Fi already built in. Simply have it professionally installed, connect it to your home’s wireless network*, and download the compatible app. It’s now ready for action. An iOS or Android app allows your smartphone to serve as a remote. You can operate the door with a tap; track your family’s comings and goings; and close the door from the grocery store – two miles away. Additionally, you can set up status reports that instantly alert you by sending a notification to your connected phone should the door open or close while you’re away from home.
*This, depending on the strength of your Wi-Fi, may or may not require an extender.
Complete Control of Your Home
A smart garage door opener is a great choice for extending automation throughout your home. Certain smart garage door openers or hubs can integrate with other smart home devices, such as Nest, IFTTT and Wink. These smart devices can “talk” to the opener to learn your comings and goings, automatically turning on the lights, and adjusting your home’s temperature to a comfortable level as soon as the door is opened. Having complete control of your home can be particularly helpful if your family is always on the go.
