In an app-world, it’d be strange if there wasn’t an app for electric garage doors! There is and it provides the exact convenience and security you most likely expect. For those who know little about smart garage door openers, let us just say that it’s all thanks to technology.
What is a smart garage door opener?
It’s actually a Wi-Fi garage door opener. An electric opener, which is powered via the router from the WiFi at your home. And thanks to the app you download to your smartphone, you can now use the cell to remotely control the garage door. You can shut and open it, check its movements, program its lights to turn on when you come home – control everything and from a distance.
How does it work? Smart openers come with a sensor, which is placed on the door. The sensor tells the opener when the garage door is open and when it’s shut – all thanks to the app downloaded to your phone.
What’s the whole purpose of smart garage door openers? To let us focus on other things and make our lives much easier and simpler. Think of how many things run in your head, from dawn to dusk and beyond. It’s truly easy to forget the overhead door open but this is not good for the home security. Is it now? But with a smart opener, this problem can be solved by simply one tap on the phone, irrespective of where you are. That’s to give you a taste of why WiFi powered openers are great for everybody.
The ways WiFi garage door openers make life easy
• You go and never look back
The garage door remains open long hours when you work in the yard. And often, it’s left open by accident for longer than that or when you leave for work. But who has time to turn back? No need to. Not when you can simply check the garage door status on your phone and simply tap to close it. Yes, it’s as simple as that.
• You know who comes & goes
You can easily see who comes and who goes through your garage and so better control the children or make sure they are back safe at home. This app keeps log of all garage door activities and so you can easily get the history of its movements – and know who comes and goes, and when.
• You can control everything
While the best advantage of smart openers is that they give you the power to control the garage door from afar, some models also enable you to monitor the temperature, to turn on/off the lights, to schedule the garage door opening/closing, to detect smoke & carbon monoxide and send you an alert.
• One tap and you are all set
Once you download the app and learn how to use it, everything is easy. You can easily open and close the garage door, check its status, monitor things just by tapping.
• You can open the door to anyone
No matter where you are, you can open the garage door to the delivery guy, the dog walker, an unexpected visitor, your kids. Nice and easy. No need to stay at home or return home for any of that.
The vital thing is that you get control over your garage door, knowing and monitoring its status at all times. Such a feeling is good for your peace of mind since the security of your home is automatically increased. Plus, some models come with a camera, some with a two-way audio too. Now you can see, talk, communicate, and control from anywhere in the world. If this isn’t great, what is?
