With the help of mobile apps, not only will your smartphone replace your garage’s remote control, but you’ll also get reminders when you’ve left the door open, easily manage who can access your garage, set rules for automatic opening and closing, and even monitor the garage via a video stream.
These garage door openers offer built-in connectivity. They can replace your old door opener unit to enjoy all the benefits of an iPhone- or Android-enabled garage.
- Added security
Garages are often a target for thieves as they are typically easier to get in and out of and they know they can get away with valuable bikes, tools and anything inside a parked car.
- Home Access
If you don’t have a smart lock installed on your door, many people find it easier to give their kids and guests access to their homes via the garage. Having a smart garage door lets you do this remotely from your phone or desktop from anywhere in the world.
- Automatic Opening/Closing
Many smart garage openers can work with your car directly or via your phones GPS and Bluetooth to automatically open the garage for you when you arrive or close it behind you when you leave. You don’t have to wonder if you left the garage open during the day.
- Safe Package Deliveries
If you are uncomfortable with letting delivery drivers inside your home, having the driver leave the package in the garage is an alternative option for keeping your package safe. Many smart openers will let you provide one-time direct access to your garage so that the driver can safely leave a package for you in the garage.
A smart garage door opener connects to your existing garage door, and then links to your Wi-Fi network so you can monitor it from anywhere. Plus, you can link it to other smart home devices, so if you open it at night, you can set your smart lights to turn on. Or, you can set your smart locks to lock when the door closes.
