Do You Need Smart Garage Control?
Is a Smart garage door opener an unnecessary luxury item? If you’ve ever experienced the sudden panic of being away from home and wondering if the garage door is closed, a Smart garage door opener can give you peace of mind and offers the better security that Smart monitoring offers.
History, access, and alerts
Instant access to garage door history, access, and alerts are just some of the features of smart garages. Wonder if your husband is home yet? If the trash was taken out? The garage door history will tell you when the garage door was opened and closed. So, if your teenage son tells you he already put the trash out, you can open the app, and the garage door history will tell you if anyone opened the garage door.
The app will let you offer access to others even when you aren’t home. Control one to three doors, get a garage system with a video feed and even night vision.
Chain drive and keypads
If you have previously had a belt drive, you’ll notice that a chain drive is a much noisier option. But, some chain drives have the Wifi option built into them, so if you have one of these newer chain drives and decide to get a Smart door opener, it will integrate seamlessly. Some chain drives don’t already have that feature, meaning you’ll have to get a home bridge to control it. Chain drive openers also may or may not have the Smart feature.
A chain drive also has the added benefit of being stronger than a belt drive. For some heavy garage doors, that’s a bonus.
A keypad is another feature that some families want. Remember when you told junior to take the trash can down to the street? A keypad will give him the means to shut the garage once he’s finished his chores or give him a chance to ride his bike without needing a cellphone.
Not all Smart garage devices will be compatible with all home systems, and sometimes, there will be a monthly fee attached, depending on the device. So, it’s worth a homeowner’s time to shop wisely to make sure he gets what he wants and what will work with his home hub. But, with WiFI, Bluetooth, and cellular options, there is something for everyone in the world of Smart garage door openers.
