Garage door openers are already incredibly convenient. At the touch of a button, the door opens so easily and inviting. There’s no need to get out of the car and brave the elements of the weather. But technology is about to make it even better. With WiFi connected garage door (also known as a smart garage door opener,) you can do so much more than you ever thought possible. Here are just a few of the amazing benefits of installing a WiFi connected garage door opener.
Open Your Door From Anywhere
It’s one thing to be able to open your garage door from your car in the driveway with the touch of a button. It’s a whole different world to be able to open your garage door from anywhere — say when you’re vacationing on the beach in Hawaii. So if you leave for vacation (or even just work) and forgot to close the garage door — no problem. You have complete control of your garage door with your smartphone, tablet or internet device. Life just got easier!
Schedule Garage Door Lighting
Garage door lights provide convenience, safety and security. With a smart garage door, you can schedule your garage door lights to come on at certain times of the day — say in the morning when you’re leaving for work, at night when you come home, or at certain times of the night just to provide added security.
Get Notified If Someone Opens a Door or Trips a Motion Sensor
The beautiful thing about a smart garage door opener is it keeps you in the loop. You can sign up for push notifications anytime someone opens a door or trips a motion sensor. This way you can remotely view the garage door to see if you need to call the police.
Better Garage Door Delivery
If you are a fan of Amazon or other Internet package delivery, you need a smart garage door. Never have a package stolen off your porch again! For example, Key by Amazon is available to select Prime members. It’s one of the safest and most secure methods for delivery on the market. You just synch your account to the free-to-download Key app. Amazon delivery drivers can then deliver packages securely inside your garage door.
