If you haven't yet invested in a smart garage door opener, now is a great time to think about doing so. Here are just a few cool things a smart garage door opener can do for you:
Simultaneous Door Operation
If your garage features two or more doors, a smart garage door opener can make life more convenient as you come and go. A smart garage door opener will allow you to operate multiple doors at the same time or separately, depending on your needs at any given time. So if you and a household member arrives home or leaves at the same time, you can open both doors with the push of just one button.
If you want to open one door and close the other for some reason, your remote control will allow you to do that. You won't have to worry about managing multiple remotes in order to control your garage doors ever again.
Automatic and On-Demand Door Position Reports
You can expect your smart garage door opener to provide you with alerts and reports when the position of your garage doors change throughout the day. If you are at work and want to be alerted if your garage door is opened while you're away, you should be able to program your system to send you a text whenever the position of the door changes. You should also be able to program your system to send you daily or weekly reports if you want to keep track of who is coming and going for any reason.
Daily and Weekly Time Scheduling Options
The ability to schedule your garage doors to automatically open on a daily or weekly basis is another feature most smart garage door openers offer. If you are planning to go on a vacation, you can program your system to open and close your garage door when you'd normally leave and come home while you're away.
This will make it look like someone is home even though you aren't, which should deter would-be thieves from breaking into your home. You can also schedule your garage door to open every day after school so your teens can get inside the house without having to carry around a house key that they could lose.
Door Management Support
Some smart garage door openers will alert you if a problem is detected in the system so you can get your system inspected and repaired as necessary before an actual break down happens. This will make it easier to manage your system over time and save some money on things like serious repairs and part replacements in the coming years.
