Thankfully, garage doors have advanced quite a bit from the old-fashioned, manual doors of the past. First came handy remote controls, so you wouldn’t have to leave the car every time you came home. But now other advancements are making garage doors better than ever. This includes stronger doors that are automated in a variety of ways to enhance convenience and safety. Read on to find out more about what these new garage doors can do.
Use your phone
If you’re looking for convenience, adding a smartphone app that connects with your garage door is easier than ever. This means you can open and close the garage door no matter where you are with just a few button presses. So if you leave on a summer vacation and it slips your mind to shut the door, you can close the door with no problem.
Time-based technology is a great new security solution. Let’s say you forget to close the garage door when going inside or when leaving your home. This new feature will automatically close the door after a set amount of time. This provides a new level of peace of mind for homeowners. And if you want to leave the garage door open for an extended period, that’s no problem. Simply disable the setting, and the door will remain open.
Many new garage door openers come with built-in Bluetooth connectivity. This allows you to open the door via your vehicle or through Bluetooth. The Bluetooth connection via a smartphone will open and close the door automatically, so you can stay focused on driving. This technology makes life easy for homeowners.
Cars have come a long way, and most new models include enhanced safety features warning the driver if they’re going to hit something. Similar technology is used for garage doors. If there’s anything in the way when they’re about to close, then the door will open again. There is no need to worry if your children are playing in the area where the garage door could be a hazard.
You can even set up these doors to send an alert to you if an object is preventing the door from working. This also prevents damage to the garage door if you accidentally leave something in its path.
This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to advancements for new garage door openers. From connecting to Wi-Fi to state-of-the-art safety and security features, it’s never been more convenient to invest in garage door installation.
