Smart Homes: Integrating Your Garage Door with Your Home Automation

Technology is advancing so quickly and things are changing every day. Now we have the capability of connecting things in our home to a central control unit and also automating our tools. Home automation is very popular today because it is making our lives so much easier. There are a lot of things that you can automate as well as control from afar, including your garage door.

What Will the Technology Allow You to Do?

Have you ever left your home and then could not remember whether or not you closed your garage door? This is the kind of thing that happens to everyone at some point or another. Not only is it something that can leave you uneasy because someone can enter your home if it is open but it is something that you have to turn around to check. Depending on how far you have gotten from your home, this could mean that you are losing a lot of time in the process. With the right home automation system, however, this is not something that you will need to worry about. With a system like this, not only can you check on whether or not your garage door is currently open but if it is, you can actually close it from an app that is connected to your phone. This is something that can save precious time and also give you peace of mind. Making sure your home is secure has never been easier.

How Can You Install This in Your Home?

The first thing that you need to do in order to make sure that this is possible for your home is take a look at the different technology that is available in the market. You will need to get a home automation system that you can connect your garage door, and other things in your home, to the central system and the app on your phone. Once you find one that you like, you should take a look at connecting your garage door. Depending on when the last time was that you updated your garage door, you may need to get some work done. However, with some existing garage doors, you can easily install some technology to the existing technology which you can quickly connect. Once you have these two components, you will simply need to follow the instructions provided by both technology systems to connect them. It should not take a lot of time or money to install the new technology and it is something that you will absolutely love as soon as it is up and running. Make sure that you test it before you leave your home to make sure it is working properly.

As you can see, the technology is getting more advanced than ever before. If you are interested in automating your garage door and being able to control it from anywhere, be sure to reach out to us today. This is just one of our home automation ideas that can make your life easier and it is not something that will break the bank.

Friendly customer service. Bought a hard to find remote for an old garage door opener. Opener has 3 buttons so I can program both doors to it. Easy to find location right off 29th St.

I was given a very fair quote. A week later a tech came and installed. Then came back to install lock. Tech was very professional and polite. Spen time with me making adjustments to my liking. I totally recommend Overhead door to my fellow Okies.

Overhead Door did a great job. They got me on the schedule the next day and fixed my spring in 30 minutes or less. Joe was great, professional, and courteous. Awesome service, and he didn't tell me I needed extra materials like the previous garage door people that quoted me $575. Overhead Door told me a price over the phone and it didn't change. I'd recommend them every time.

Pleased with their services. Coil spring broke and door stopped working. Spoke to Ron, and less than 24 hrs later the technician had us up n running again. These guys did exactly what they promised to do, with no nonsense. I like that.
